I was certain that I would have lost weight this week. Why wouldn't I??? Afterall, I consumed about 400 less calories per day and had kept to my usual workout schedule so really, why wouldn't I have lost weight?
I highly doubt that my body went into Starvation Mode. I was consuming approx. 1500 to 1600 calories a day. Based on my activity level I am supposed to be consuing approx. 2000 cals a day.
If I were to add my calorie deficit to the calories loss from my cardio workout alone, I should have had a total deficit of 4400 calories which is equivalent to slightly over 1 lb, right?
But when I stepped on the scale this morning, my scale told me that my weight stayed exactly the same... at 126.6 lbs. What the hell????
Not only that, my Body Fat percentage increased by 0.04% which by the way works out to half a pound in fat... which also means that my Lean Muscle Mass decreased!
After all my freaking hard work ... I $#@%ING LOSS LEAN MUSCLE MASS AND %$#%ING INCREASED MY BODY FAT BY HALF A $#%@ING POUND???!!!!! WHAT THE $#%@???!!!!!!!!!
I wonder if having my monthly friend come visit has anything to do with the lack of weight loss and possibly fat gain.
Tom Venuto does not discuss this in his book .... duh, obviously! He's a guy and he doesn't have a monthly visitor. I know that in the past, I would gain about 1-3 lbs right around the time leading up to my period with a definite drop in weight right after my period.
So, this time I didn't gain the weight .... I was able to maintain ... which is good, right? But then how does the increase in Fat factor into this entire situation?
I'm soooooo confused!
