Drink a lot of water! Water fills the muscles after a workout and drinking more water helps flush out that excess. Good luck at the gym!

I had to remember that muscle is heavier than fat so even though my numbers went up my waist went down and I got leaner. I was also coached to make sure I fuel correctly before and after a workout to maximize the long term benefits and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

you should get a dexa scan. If you are dieting properly (calorie deficit) you're weight should not increase from working out because you won't have the calories to build muscle. keep measuring yourself, keep weighing. Don't ignore these things because they tell you something unpleasant, and don't make excuses about weight lifting being the reason for your weight gain. If you're weight is increasing you may need to adjust your diet or up your cardio or both. If you stop tracking your weight you'll have no idea if what you are doing is working or not. I'm not trying to be mean, I'm trying to provide the accountability we are all here for. You can and will achieve your goals. Stay focused, stay on track, train hard, eat right. https://youtu.be/vyJ_hhninDw

Ahhh, you just want an excuse to keep looking at the scale. hahaha important...take the measurements and bring in your own tape if you have to.

What measurements should I take and where do I take them from?

Ben.. A few days of going up isn't something I am going to be alarmed at.. I know my diet is solid, but I also know I have never been in a gym before and need to give my body time to adjust. As for gaining weight that I need to up my cardio or decrease calories those adjustments may be acceptable later on, but this first month at least I will eat what allowed me to loose before going to the gym and keep going to the gym. Which is at a deficit, but I have a hard time getting those calories in.. Sometimes different people have different ways they need to eat in order to loose weight

Michelle, Have Patty tell you all the places you need to wrap the tape around you, by trainer one would think.That's a woman thing I'm not getting involved in that..Thanks Patty.😰

Murf would be more worried about asking a woman her weight!! Lol... But of course I have always been one of those people who would say it and be like it's a number why should I be upset someone asked

Cause I mean...... Obviously I'm fat so it's not going to be a surprise. Although I do tend to be heavier than people expect because I hold my weight well. I had a coworker who thought I couldn't be more than 300 (she's heavy too so was shocking she thought it so low)

Michelle I measure my bust, chest, midway, waist, left Thigh, right Thigh, left Knee, right Knee, left Calf, right Calf, left Upper Arm, right Upper Arm, left Forearm, and right Forearm. It’s reassuring to look at those measurements and see the progress when the scale try’s to tell you otherwise.

when I started at the post office, I weighed 150ish. 11 months later I weighed the same, but i went from xl or 1x or 2x shirts to medium/large...16/18 pants to 10/12. remember muscle weighs more than fat. so working out and gaining isn't a bad thing. look at how your clothes fit.
