The first few weeks I lost about 5kgs (I retain a lot of fluid, so I think most of this may have been fluid). For the first time in years I was doing exercise every day and feeling great, but from week 3 to week 7 I put 2kgs back on which didn't budge for a month!!!
I assumed this was probably due to suddenly doing regular exercise and perhaps starting to build muscle mass, and also hormones (which effect my weight a LOT).
Perhaps it's also partly to do with where you are in your "cycle" right now?
For what it's worth, despite getting very discouraged during that 4 week period where my weight had gone up and not moved... I stuck with it and after that 4 week period I started to lose weight consistently until I reached my goal (a few months later) of 58kgs... and by choosing to do it the healthy way (like you) it stayed off for years (even when habits became slightly less healthy ).
Tarz wrote:Hi, what your doing sounds like a good exercise and diet plan. All i can suggest is don't focus on the scales, focus on the tape measure. You have gone from fairly inactive to a very active daily plan which means you are going to build a lot of muscle as well as lose fat. Remember muscle weighs more then fat so the scales may stay the same or go up slightly but you will be losing cm. Take some measurements and monitor it that way.
