If you see a weight gain from workouts, it's most likely your muscles retaining water to help them heal. They get little tears in the muscle fibers and water replaces to help them heal. This can show on the scale as a temporary water weight gain, no loss or small loss. When we exercise, we make the muscles stronger. We don't necessarily build muscle without a lot of hard work. You also have to eat a lot of protein and have a well balanced diet. It' extremely difficult for women to gain muscle when they are trying to lose weight. When we don't eat enough, our bodies actually consume the muscle we do have. That is why when you see people who lose weight fast, a lot of it is fat, water and muscle. Keep going and focus on lots of lean protein, lean dairy, fruits and veggies.
