You may gain before You lose:
This is especially true if your first step to losing weight is increasing your daily activity. One reason is that exercise spurs your muscles to store carbs as fuel reserves. Every stored gram of carbs carries a few grams of water and that additional fluid could send the scale up. But the more muscles you build, the more efficient your metabolism gets. Four or five weeks into your exercise routine,the weight starts to come off.
You may not lose every week!-
Sincere efforts should be rewarded with a loss of 1-2 lbs per week. Some weeks that happens;others,the scale stalls. As you lose fat,your body may put on the brakes to protect you from losing too much to fast. No worries-the scale should resume its journey south without extra persuasion. But if the scale stays stuck for 3 wks or more,step up the activity to boost your metabolism or try new ways to cut calories. Any plateau is a chance for you to change something that will lead to weight loss later.
