Sooo I don't know what's happened.

The day before Christmas, I weighed 170lbs. The day AFTER Christmas, we went snowboarding. Plenty of activity to burn some major calories, right?

Today, I weighed 180lbs.

The last three weeks, I've worked out 5-6 days a week, with 30min of cardio at LEAST each time.

Also, my eating has not changed. If anything, I'm eating significantly less fast-food and other crap than I have in recent months.

So what gives? Thats a WHOLE lot of weight to gain, and while I'm getting pretty ripped, there's still flabbiness on me, so I can't say it's all muscle weight.

I don't understand, and I'm pretty depressed about it. I'm tempted to do a fruit-flush, and three days later start form zero, but it's hard to commit to that, and then make my boyfriend something else for dinner. Bah.

Today I've had:

Homemade breakfast sandwich: 1 whole wheat english muffin, one egg, one slice of canadian bacon, one slice of cheese
one can pears
30 stick pretzels
one can tuna

tonight, we'll probably go out to dinner, and I'll do what I usually do: lean protein (chix, or fish) and make sure they give me a vegetable, NOT bathed in butter.

I don't know. I'm completely perplexed. Perhaps I used to eat too little, and now my metabolism is all jacked, but ugh. It's frustrating.

Those pretzles contain massive carbs, maybe have 10 or substitute with fruit?

I'm doing a similar thing, not aiming for a specific weight as such but just trying to get rid of unwanted flab.

My day consists of breakfast apple and banana, 11pm apple, 1pm large salad, apple, banana, 4pm apple, home at 6pm banana, gym 30 mins intensive weights, 30mins jog @ 9.7 @1%, 15 min bike, home at 10 then chicken breast and vegetables with a balsamic vinegar dressing or something similar.

Just before christmas I lost 15 pounds in 3 weeks, since then the progress has been slow but I'm stepping up the exercise by about a third. Hopefully it will pay off soon!

Keep up the good work, it will pay off!
