Losing It: Not just our Sanity - Week 7

People we have a situation. I am finally starting to get into the habit of the whole workout/gym/being sweaty thing. I adjusted my workout thanks to the help of the personal trainer (who by the way was a one off consult from the gym with my membership - I don't get to keep him. Boo). But you people did not mention I was going to gain weight with all this muscle. What the hell?

I get the whole muscle is denser than fat thing. I totally get that hey, holidays = not being great about diet. But seriously? SO sick of seeing the scale go back up instead of down while working my ass off. Although apparently not literally since Oh Hi I gained weight this week.

So my friends, this week will be about tracking every bite. And counting calories. Because despite drinking enough water to drown in, and not missing any workouts I am failing at Losing It. If there was a Gaining It I would be in the running.

This is week 7. Which means I have 3 weeks to become a lean(ish), mean, exercising machine. Meanwhile, I will post my exact weigh in after I workout this morning, because that is when I always do.

On a positive note, I have a dent and my arm shows a tiny bit of muscle when I flex it. Focus on the little things. And pray my panties don't cause inappropriately placed blisters.

That's what I was looking for - another reason to avoid exercise! LOL!
I'm just always excited when my clothes fit better. I'm sure yours are.
Keep going!

Congrats on the muscle dent! I now feel better about my progress this week. I gained seven pounds of muscle (or so I'll be telling myself). ; )

Great job! You're encouraging ME!

Girl.. stop it!! Muscle does weigh more and I bet you are loosing inches. So let up! You are doing great! Keep pushing. I'm here in AL doing the same thing!

Seriously! Listen to what all the commenters just said. If you are working out like a maniac and eating well etc you have GOT to be losing weight. Have you measured? You have to measure! That will give you a better idea of the inches you're losing as well. I can guarantee that you are losing somewhere.
Keep up the great work!

Ha! You're cracking me up!! I'm totally jealous of your arm muscle - even if it weighs more than it should. :) Keep up the good work. It will happen!
