I gained 3 pounds and I ate right and exercised everyday?

Thursday, April 09, 2015

My first week back and I gained weight? I have exercised everyday and stayed within my 1200-1500 calorie range. I just don't get it. I know that having hypothyroidism can make it harder to lose the weight but I thought that if I drank all my water, lowered my calories and fats and got up off my butt and exercised I would see at least some loss. Any tips?
My energy levels have improved and my moods are better. I am more alert less groggy and can focus better. Which are all great benefits but I really wanted to see a lower number on the scale. I see my Doctor at he end of the month for a med check maybe my prescription needs changed as I am still losing hair like crazy.
Even with all of this going on I am not giving up. I have started making healthier life choices and I feel better. My oldest daughter and I are walking everyday and getting to know each other more. its a time where its just us no one else but the dogs and she can talk to me about anything she wants to. I am becoming a better person day by day and want I am loving who I am. but just wish I had lost some weight.

    I say just keep doing the right things and you will see a difference. During the month there are many different reasons for our weight changes. Keep at it!

    If the exercise you are doing has been a sudden increase, likely your muscles are retaining water. I know mine are right now -- I'm on the rebound from seven weeks inactivity post foot surgery, and am seeing the scales respond with an increase. I did this last time I had surgery as well.... so it doesn't alarm me. Just be patient, keep drinking lots of water.... and *enjoy your time with your daughter*!!

    Maybe you are toning up. Did you measure everywhere at the beginning and then measure again at the end of the week.
    Sometimes the body just needs a week or so to adjust to a new lifestyle. Keep on keeping on and I bet you will see movement on the scales next weigh day.
