Perhaps it is muscle that you have gained rather than fat. It's not all about the numbers.

That might be it I guess. ^^; I just get too frustrated too easily, I think.

A lot of people do when they concentrate on the numbers and some even give up because it's not happening fast enough or something like that.

Best way is to reflect on why you want to lose the pounds and concentrate on other kinds of goals and motivations of the more positive variety.

Well I only want to lose about 15lbs or so, I just feel fitter and stronger at that weight. For the most part I am going to the gym and such because it is fun and helps me de-stress and my diet has always been pretty good anyway. I just don't like the feeling of gaining weight uncontrollably like I have been this past year.

A few thoughts:

- What do your clothes say, is the fit changing in them? That is a far more accurate guide to gaining/losing fat than is the scale.
- Genetics aren’t everything in weight, but they do play a role. If women in your family tend to be big you might find it pretty difficult to stay at the size that you’d prefer (after all, most fat folk out there would rather be thin, and they many of them did not become fat through anything all that odd in lifestyle)
- If I recall correctly, you are in your very early 20s? It is an age when a lot of people end up gaining weight, as the bullet-proof adolescent metabolism begins to slow down.

I’m not trying to say that you are doomed to get bigger, just that to stop gaining, or even more so to lose, might require unpleasant changes to your lifestyle. It is one of the lousy things about getting older (yes, even as young as you are, you start getting ‘getting older’ stuff), you really are running on the Red Queen’s racetrack, body-wise.

Firstly, thank you for the reply. ^_^

Hmm, well my clothes are all about a size too big for me because that is how I like them so it is hard to tell. I tend to wear loose and stretchy clothes anyway. I know that even when I was 4 stone lighter I was only 2 sizes smaller so clothes size never really works that well for me as an indicator.

Yeah, my family on my mothers side are all bigger women, though none of them are extremely large and my mother is smaller than I am. I know I am never going to be thin and I don't want to be. I just want to feel at a healthy weight for me.

I am 23, so early to mid twenties. Haha, my metabolism was far from bullet proof as a teenager, I was always on a diet or putting on weight. I got very thin after starving myself a couple of years ago and now I've been trying to eat normally I put on about 50lbs in two years and it is showing no signs of slowly down. I just want to be able to get fitter and such. And I've gone from a very sedentary lifestyle to going to the gym for an hour 4 times a week so I would have thought that would stop me gaining weight at least...

I weigh about 220lbs. Definitely up, and continuing to go up. I have been eating a healthy diet of Popeyes, KFC, and some White Castle. Today I may even have Panda Express, as I go to check out that movie. Rainy, rainy day.. All the better to eat a three entree Panda meal with Lo Mein and soda.

Would probbly be about 225lbs or so, if I checked. People tell me they looove my lil' belly.

Thank you

I went to the doctor on Sunday and their scale said i'm 376 now. So the exercise is helping. My food intake is sucking since getting my injury but that'll change when i can walk around and stand for longer periods of time. I miss my salads!

Default Louise is better and rehydrating.

Last week Louise was 340 pounds and I was 332. Louise felt that since we were so close that she would like to be smaller than me so she would see if she could get me up to 340. This morning I was 338. If I'm not careful I will wind up bigger than her. We are now both getting to the arthritic swim exercise class and exercising hard to times a week plus I also go riding on my recumbent tricycle.

I am glad that the open sore in her leg has finally healed which allows her to go to the arthritic swim class. During the breaks we will each take turns singing a waltz tune and dancing the box step. It is so nice to be all hold her warm soft body against my body while we dance in 4 feet of water.

I love that, it makes it sound like your scale doesn't quite know how to break it to you about your weight! "Err... well... um... this is awkward..." xD
