Medications that cause weight gain
My mother had to take cortisol. It adds on a LOT of water weight.

craving junk food
What about making your own burger at home, with ground bison, whole wheat bun, and a bit of lettuce and tomato, perhaps some avocado instead of ketchup or mayonnaise? As for fries, you could use sweet potato (fries) instead. It's a bigger serving, and a lot more nutritious.

Fat does not turn into muscle!
Thank you! This right here.

breakfast -
As gnat824 previously stated, it depends on what works for you. Personally, I get unbearable if I don't have a big breakfast.

Excellent work.

Holy starvation, Batman! You need at least a thousand calories, or your body will go into survival mode and store all of your food as fat. You definitely don't need a sauna suit. Those are for competitive body builders attempting to press out a few more pounds of water weight. It's a pretty dangerous thing to do, too, because you lose a LOT of water and suffer from dehydration, and drinking a lot of water is important for weight loss. Sweating more doesn't help you lose weight faster--it's just water, anyway.

Baby Fat
I'll have to politely disagree with corifea--if you don't work on muscle buildup, then the pouch is going to stay. I had my son two years ago, lost eighty five pounds, and the pouch stayed until I began actually integrating more fitness into my day. The reason it sags in the first place is due to a weakened muscular structure of the stomach derived from the pregnancy cycle.

Hello, then. I suppose an introduction is in order. A friend of mine suggested using this site, so here I am. I'm a single mother of a toddler. I've always been rather thin--and quite out of shape. After my pregnancy, I lost the baby weight relatively quickly within about six to eight months (that's eighty five pounds right there). Despite being generally active and eating healthy, I never saw the purpose in actually becoming physically fit until a few months ago. Right now, my goal is to build up muscle mass while getting rid of the pouch that's left over while becoming generally healthier and more comfortable about myself. Finding the opportunity to work out, of course, poses as a bit more difficult than normal. As a result, I work out at home and then run three days out of the week. Mainly, I joined the site to log my calorie consumption and output and to gather a bit of information of muscle gain (something something macro nutrients). I'm always glad about feedback, recommendations, suggestions, tips, and general "hello"-s. So, hello!

Try drinking more water or chewing gum, if you do that. It will help reduce the oral fixation until your body is used to not smoking. Finding distractions helps, also.

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
Once a week, if I happen to remember. Then again, I'm aiming for muscle mass, as opposed to weight loss, so it's not much of an issue. Measurements, on the other hand? A tad bit too frequently, probably.

"I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday." I believe I read that on FB at some point, and it stuck a bit.

"Cheating" from time to time should be fine. As long as you don't overindulge, you can have your little bowl of ice cream if you want. Good luck!
