    I just started exercising to lose weight, but I've gained weight. Why did this happen?


    It's true that many people either gain a little weight or don't see any change on the scale for as long as 4-6 weeks after making a significant change in their level of exercise. This is often explained as "gaining muscle while losing fat" but that isn't quite accurate. This extra weight is usually water.

    When you start doing more exercise, your body begins storing more fuel in your muscle cells, where it can be used easily and quickly to fuel your workouts. The process of converting glucose (carbohydrates) into fuel that your muscles actually store and use (glycogen) requires three molecules of water for every molecule of glucose. As your muscles are building up glycogen stores, your body has to retain extra water for this purpose. That's what causes most of the initial weight gain or lack of weight loss. This is a good thing—not something to worry about.

    However, despite what the scale says, you are actually losing fat during this time. The extra water retention will stop once your body has adjusted to its new activity level. At that point, the scale should start moving down. You'll end up with less fat, and muscles that can handle a larger amount of work.

    You need to cut back on your jobs. That's the last time I'm telling you nicely. You can be mad at me all you want but until you do, I'm mad at you first.

    And I really feel bad about your apartment. I think if that was done you'd feel refreshed!

    Hey. I can't seem to get a hold of you. Your phone must not be getting my messages or something. I hope you're still getting on here. I joined the Biggest Loser at Snap Fitness. You're too busy to join, so you're not allowed. I hope to come work on your apartment in a few weeks. Gives you time to save up money for more paint and stuff.

    Talk to you later!
