Why can't I lose weight?
What have I gotten myself into? It has been almost a week since the weigh-in, and I'm sore in places I didn't even know existed. I've eaten healthy (with no cheating!) and I've worked out constantly. Weights, push-ups, sit-ups, bench presses, walking, jogging, bike riding... Everyday, multiple times a day. So I got on Supermann's scale today, and what did I find? I had gained a pound! Mind you, I weighed myself with my shoes on, so that probably had something to do with it. But it was still discouraging. So then I worked out for an hour - spent time on the treadmill, worked on my abs, did some bench presses, did the elliptical. Basically, sweat a whole bunch. Supermann made me get on the scale again, this time with my shoes off. And I weighed exactly the same as I had one hour before! I gained weight just by working out! Why me?
