We have been at this for 17 weeks! The scales said we gained 5 pounds this week!

We Have Both Gained Weight This Week...HELP!

This is Dave's Water Dispenser! It is already set up with ice cold water and super hot water!  He is going to use it a lot I know it!  This is what he needs to get his water intake better!
It is time to weigh in again.  We were not sure what to expect.  There were days over Christmas that we "indulged" in a few things...We had a couple of cookies, Dave ate a lot more and I ate a piece of fudge.  We kept up with the work out, but we just knew that we were gaining something.  We were not to excited about checking in today.  This is what we found.   I had gained a pound.   At first I was like, " It only one pound, that is not bad!" But I needed to know what I gained.  I gained three pounds of muscle and lost two pounds of fat.  To me that is a perfect week!  Dave had a five pound weight gain...the same weight he keeps gaining and loosing these last few weeks.  He gained 3.2 pounds of muscle, but he also gained 1.7 pounds of fat.  That was his weigh gain.  His water was much better!  He is enjoying his Christmas gift.  I got him a water dispenser that has ice cold, hot and lukewarm water at his finger tips at any time of the day!

Here are the stats for this week:
* Dave and I both gained weight
*Dave gained not only muscle, but fat too- first time since we started
*It was a tough week with it being the first Christmas without mom
*I ate sweets for the first time since starting this journey
* We both gained a lot of muscle this week
* We got a water machine for the house
*The kids are doing a free week at the gym
* I have been exercising every day
* I am right back on track with the meal plan this week

This was a tough week.  We got through and really did not have that bad of a gain, considering most of what we gained was muscle.  I am telling you since my kids have joined us it has made me want to put my all into it again. They are breathing life into us.  We were growing stagnant.  Not any more. We have been at the gym doing weight MWF and cardio on T Th S .  I can't wait to step on the scale next week.  Although I am not losing a lot of weight...I know I am changing my body for the better.  Can't wait till next week.  We are becoming stronger, healthier, and happier every day!
