Soooo I am cutting because I’m going on a cruise! I’ve dropped my calories from 2,500 to 2,100. I’m doing 30 minutes of cardio 4 days per week plus weight training 4 days a week. Yet my body weight is increasing. What should I do?0uv9u6tv2lxi.png

    If the weight training is new, you are retaining water weight, which will mask fat loss. Nothing wrong with that, have more patience. The only other thing I would recommend is to review your logging to make sure no inaccuracies are sneaking in there. Take some measurements and keep taking pictures, and go by feel of clothing for the next several weeks until the water weight shifts (could take 4-6 weeks).

    Yep!

    Are you averaging your weigh-ins to determine what your weight is? Your day-to-day weight can vary significantly depending on salt and carbohydrate intake, for example, because both those can cause water retention. In order to accurately assess your weight you really need to weigh yourself every day at the same time and use a running average.

    I know the photos are three months apart but how long have you been following the diet and exercise plan for?

    So this is a updated pic as of last night before a work out. I’m in great shape but that extra 5lb isn’t budging n3up0fa4jg5m.jpeg

    Eat less - if you aren't losing weight after 3 months you aren't in a calorie deficit.

    Logging your food every day might help.

    And using a food scale if you are serious about dialing it in.

    Maybe I’m crazy, but I’m looking at your pictures, not your weight. Are you more defined, smaller waist? Heck with weight!
