If you gained weight when starting to exercise due to adding lean mass or water retention/carb storage, how long was it before your weight started to go DOWN?
3 1/2 weeks ago, I went out of town and though I was exercising before, I started marathon training and added in 2 days a week of bodyweight and plyometric resistance training. Even though I've had a calorie deficit of 450/day, I came back to discover I have gained 5-7 lbs.
According to my bodyfat scale it is all water or lean mass and I've lost a bit of fat too (I have felt like I've been retaining water for about a week, not sure why..) My waist measurement is the same to a half inch smaller.
However my goal is WEIGHT loss, for faster running. How long before you started to lose weight?
