I know, I know I know.....NOT ANOTHER STALL POST!!??!!

i promised myself I wouldn't post one of these, I was prepared for the stall, it is happening, but I have a question...

did anyone put weight on during their stall?

i was at a rugby tournament all weekend, watched what I ate, took in my fluids, took in my Protein, my exercise was down ( only 5 miles a day compared to my 8 - 10 that I normally do) Yet somehow managed to gain 1.6lbs over the weekend, so I'm just curious if anyone else experienced this during their stall?

thanks.

The fact that you gain weight doesn’t mean that you gain fat you probably gain muscle mass happen to me didn’t understand it until my doc explaining it to me try to measure your fat% and your muscle mass

Very true, I have a nutritionist appt next Monday so I'm going to ask if I can step on their fancy machine and see where my muscle mass is vs pre surgery.

thanks

Was it hot at the tournament? You could just be retaining Water from the heat.

But to answer your question, yes I have gained weight during a stall--1.6 pounds also to be exactly.

I gain and lose almost 3 pounds with my period every month:) Also, if I eat a lot of salty stuff, the scale ticks up for a few days. It's all Water. No worries!

Gains during a "stall" while working out... totally normal.

Body fat% is what needs to be watched as well. (as stated above, but I hammer on this point SO OFTEN!)

Just stick to your plans, hit your metrics and keep exercising and it'll eventually turn around.

I just gained 2 but I had heavily salted movie popcorn (I know! I know! Terrible!) and I'm annoyed at myself. I didn't go through all this pain to waste my life eating movie popcorn. #lessonlearned
