Morganzilla's Journal, 03 December 2013

Okay so I'm yo-yoing again. I can't seem to get below 170 consistently. I have started Jillian Michael's 30-day Shred and I feel good. However my weight is getting higher every additonal day I do. I know this it probably muscle repair etc. But it doesn't suck any less when I weigh myself. I am recording all my food still, yes I have the odd extra cracker, however I am never close to eating over my calories. I wish I knew what was holding me back? I eat roughly 1400-1600 cals a day maximum, and I workout almost everyday. What else is missing?

Diet Calendar Entries for 03 December 2013:
1252 kcal Fat: 40.80g | Prot: 49.16g | Carb: 187.42g.   Breakfast: Clementines. Lunch: Celery, Baby Carrots, Thinsations Chocolate Covered Pretzels, Triscuit Original Thin Crisps, Activia yogurt fat free, Summer Fresh Roasted Red Pepper Dip. Dinner: Weight Watchers Multigrain Bread, Black Diamond Cheddar Slices (Fat Free), Heinz Tomato Ketchup, Split Pea Soup, Margarine. Snacks/Other: Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar. more...
2048 kcal Activities & Exercise: Calisthenics (heavy, e.g. pushups) - 20 minutes, Resting - 15 hours and 40 minutes, Sleeping - 8 hours. more...


I would really make sure my calories are what I think they are. Second, I would cut back on the carbs. Third give it some more time, it might come off all at once, but you shouldn't be gaining weight. Muscle repair doesnt happen that quickly or that efficiently, especially in women. But whatever you are doing, it's better than NOT doing it, I promise you that.

Keep your chin up. I know it sucks seeing the scale go up. I am sure you will be able to turn it around.

Wow, look at your chart. You have done amazing. Yes, the gains are most likely fluid retention from Jillians workouts. Those last few pounds can be stubborn. You might try alternating high and lower caloric days, upping protein and high fiber foods. Watch the sodium intake (processed foods have tons) and drink you water. Notice how your clothes are fitting with the workouts too. Hang in there. You are doing amazing.

Thanks everyone. I think my largest issue is the processed foods, I'm going to try and minimize the sodium I'm taking in and maximize my water consumption. I do have to remind myself where I have come from because your absolutley right, I have done well according to my weightlosss history. Thanks for the reminder.
