Weight :( March 8, 2010

So I just weighed myself for the first time in about two months.  In the past two months,  I have upped my thyroid medicine and also increased my cardio.  I also thought not being chained to the scale would really help in some way as well.  I figured my weight would be down like 5 pounds- ish, no such luck :(.  It was down about 1 pound.  I know, I know one pound is better than nothing, but I still feel like it should be better.  I also know my muscle mass has increased, so I probably lost more fat but it is still really disappointing!

Well, I already knew that I have been snacking too much and that I need to control this with a food journal.  But I have been adding in a lot more veggies.  But I was also trying coconut oil in cooking and making protein chocolate, but maybe that does not agree with my body?  I think I also need to chang up my workouts.  I need to add more cardio but also some weight training.  I am thinking I need to buy The New Rules of Lifting for Women.  Any suggestions?

UPDATE:  So, this is all I have been thinking about for the last hour because I am really disappointed by this gain.  I think I need to phase out nuts and coconut oil,  I do not think my body can handle the fat.  I also think I need to go back to measuring everything I eat.  In the past couple of months I have changed birth control and all of my hormones have been really screwed up, but my doctor says I need to stay on it for 4 months before everything is regular (it has only been 2).  I wish I could just get off BC all together, but due to my PCOS I cannot 😦 , I do not get my period if I am not on the pill.  When I was losing weight, I was using Splenda instead of Stevia, I wonder if my body could not handle the Splenda and just did not digest it.  I just don’t know.  Sorry for the negative post, I just do not know where to go from here,  I feel like I am doing anything I can.
