Weight Watchers - end of Week 3


gained 0.4 pounds this week and I have NO IDEA WHY!!!

I worked out 5 times this week and ate well within my points.  

So what gives?

Too much fluid the night before??  Coming on that time of the month??  Building muscle??  I don't know - and the weight watchers lady offered me all these possible reasons.  All I know is, it's frustrating.

I understand at some point that fat turns to muscle, and I understand at some point that my weight will start leveling out - BUT NOT AT WEEK 3!!!!  NOT AFTER BUSTING MY ASS ALL WEEK!!!

So yeah, frustrated.

And angry.  

After crying when I saw the scale, I sat through the meeting and beat myself up at the gym.  And then did the same thing Sunday.  There is no way in HELL that I will have anything less than a spectacular number when I weigh in this coming Thursday.



  1. Same thing happened to me 2 weeks ago. I had an awesome week and even stayed OP at Orioles Opening day, but I gained 2.4. I almost cried and had to force myself to stay for meeting. This past week I lost 6.2 lbs though! WOOHOO! Guess the scale caught up with it self. I will spare you all the typical muscle, water weight, heavier clothes yadda yadda excuses and just say that there is hope! The scale will catch up!

  2. Thanks, Kat... I sure hope I have the same result!!!!

  3. Don't get upset. .4 is nothing!! And be proud of all you did this past week. Like I said, I'm so jealous. Have spent sooo much time sick. This week-have spent it on the couch in pain, crying or mad at the world. I know I've gained. But what has kept me looking ahead-you! Your posts. Your workouts. Be proud of the attitude change. Being at the gym. The end result. Don't beat yourself up for .4!

  4. Make sure you're eating enough protein. I can't emphasize enough how important a high-protein diet is if you're looking to burn fat. Some ideas are egg whites, turkey jerky, chicken breast, greek yogurt... even protein shakes or low carb protein bars. Try to have some protein in each of your meals, and aim for at least 100g of protein a day. It really makes a difference and will keep you fuller! Forget the empty calories... they're the ones that are hardest to burn off.

  5. I had the same thing happen to me. Hang in there! I know it can be so frustrating when you work so hard. Don't give up!!!
