Okay so I’m really confused! Again I have been working out everyday rest day Sunday’s eating good and not to heavy real late. I weighed myself and looks like I gained about 3-5 pounds! I know this is a journey and I’m not looking for crazy quick results but a lot more then what im getting now. Especially because I am going ! I don’t plan on giving but it definitely makes me feel crappy. WHAT TO DO??!!
I’m not really a newbee to the gym but it has been a while since I have been as consistent as I am now. I research a lot of new workouts and routines and I have a book I keep everything in. I have a Monday-Saturday rotating schedule from working on cardio everyday then rotating legs, abs, arms etc… Ita good to hear that this is common just new to me becuase when I first was on my journey I just lost constantly this was a couple of years ago! But I’m not going to stop I actually love working out. But I am antsy for results!
I ALWAYS gain weight when I start exercising for the first 4 or 5 weks. Its because I am building muscle. It took me about 2 almost 3 months of dedicated exercise and healthy eating to begin seing my weight drop significantly. I dont weigh myself. I dont count calories, I do what feels good, I push myself a little further each time and I dont hurry. That is the only thing that has ever worked for me
You can gain before you lose. As a beginner in the gym (I’m guessing you are) sometimes you build muscle before losing fat, and obviously muscle weighs. So just stick with it and you will see your scale drop. And I’m sure, if you measure yourself you might have lost a few inches, sometimes the body holds on to water, or anything can make the weight go up and down, so start measuring yourself! Good luck
