i'm walking 7 miles a day and gaining weight!

im on my 3rd week of eating right and walking 3.5 miles in the morning and 3.5 in the evenings every damn day. i got on the scale the last two days and im gaining weight. now i know that my dinner was a little salty but still. i have drastically cut my calorie intake and the type of calories is much better. instead of eating junk and sodas etc...im drinking tea and water and raw veggies...no junk... my calories are staying between 1200-1500 a day. on top of walking 7 miles a day...im really behaving here. when am i going to see results!!!!

Have you ever considered varying your calories. Sometimes a cheat meal is just what you need to rev your metabolism. A 200 calorie boost one day a week would probably help you a lot. Also walking is very low intensity and I'm sure 7 miles takes a significant amout of time. High intensity even for a shorter time can burn more calories and increase your metabolism for several hours. Try swapping a few high intensity workouts instead of walking. Your body can rapidly adjust to your diet and workout route. Try to keep it guessing.

Walking is a great way of burning fat. Muscle weighs more than fat so you are most likely gaining muscle. The muscle will in turn burn the fat continuously. The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism will be. You are on the right track! Keep at it and you will see results soon. I have also learned to throw the scale out the window!!! haha

I'm no expert, but I've heard that sometimes you need to eat MORE. You are burning a good bit of calories walking, in addition to cutting your calories so your body may be holding onto what it has instead of burning it because it thinks it is starving. Google that and see what you come up with. Jillian Michaels answered a question like that on her website not too long ago.

Also, maybe get a calorie counting site. If you have a smartphone, there are apps for that, or you can find one online. I use the iPhone version of mynetdiary.com. You can put in your goal weight and your goal date and it will tell you how many calories you need to be eating. And if you are working out a good bit, it will tell you that you need to eat more. I lost a good bit of weight using this tool and I never felt like I was even doing anything it was so easy!

Good luck!!

stop going on the scale!! thats your biggest problem right now. muscle weighs more then fat so youre probably gaining muscle. it could also just be water weight. but only go on the scale once a week, go by how your clothes fit, and do measurements. i know when i started getting in shape i had a lot to learn. i started out at 154. i got down to 138 (lowest ive ever gotten at an adult age) didnt change my workout plan at all, and then i got back up to 148, i was smaller in the waist at 148 then at 138..... its just muscle. so relax with the scale!! women worry too much about numbers.

Not certain where you are at post-op, but if you switch up your daily walking regime and throw in some weight training or some interval work, your body may really enjoy the change. Same with eating, I know it was said on here, but your body may have gotten accustom to the same caloric intake, so often we need to "trick" it. So having a little more calories one day, and less the other, could make a difference. Also, you should journal what you are eating, as so often we think we are eating "healthy", when we come to find out we are eating all the wrong foods, much of what can be empty calories. Try and stay away from the sugar free, fat free and artificial foods. Stick to more whole, real foods. Think the outer skirts of the grocery store.

Also, ditch the scale. It does no favors for most of us women, except stress us out over a silly #.

Hope this helps and good luck!

ditch the scale
ditch the salt (sorry you said your dinner was salty, that proves a bad diet)
check your calorie req is correct, and that you are hitting the MINIMUM required
+ instead of walking do interval training (HIIT) to boost your metabolism
+ add resistance training 2-3x week!! <--- KEY

That's so true! I read a ton of book on weight loss! the author of burn the fat feed the muscle has a great method, he said to eat 300-400 additional calories every third day so your body dosen't think you are starving and to speed up you metabolism.

I would say ignore the scales are use a tape measure, rely more on how your clothes fit. Apparent weight gain can be due to a number of things, retaining water, constipation or simply not having emptied your bowels that day or the previous day. Just stick with it, if you are having the right number of calories and exercising results will follow. As previous poster said you may be gaining muscle and losing fat.

This ^^^....Honestly, if you can bring yourself to a jog/walk/jog/walk, you'll be utilizing your time and workout much better. You'll see and feel results faster. I've been jogging for only 3 weeks and I've already improved SO much- I started out walking/jogging 1 mile, to full on jogging 2 miles in 21 minutes (10.5 min mile - whoop!). And I have never, EVER been a runner and I have weak knees, but I'm just taking it one run at a time and not over-doing it. Also, the prior poster mentioned salt intake - make it a point to check every single label for sodium...even low-fat, processed 'sweets' can have a lot of sodium. Your body just holds on to that sodium and makes you bloated. Few of us drink enough water everyday to flush out the amount of sodium that our body DOESN'T need, but that we put in. Stay away from 'low fat' processed foods - most of them are just filled with junk. I try to eat dinner early, and if it has to be later in the evening, make it a lighter meal. I feel less bloated in the morning. DROP THE SCALE! SEriously, weighing yourself everyday is counterproductive. Your weight fluctuates throughout the day, and it's just not an accurate way of showing progress. It's more of a discouragement rather than a helpful tool in weightloss and fitness.

HTH!

I agree with many of these responses.

First of all- ignore the scale. Go by how your clothes feel and whatever non-scale indicator keeps you in line. (It sounds dumb, but I can just tell by the space between my upper thighs whether I'm gaining and need to watch it, but that's just me...)

I'm always having to watch my calories bc I was always a little on the chubby side growing up and even into my 20's, and I've noticed that if I have a large meal while dieting, that sometimes I wake up the next day thinner. It's because I revved up my metabolism, I think. So, maybe every now and then, eat more than normal and you might see results.

Nikk is an unknown quantity at this point
When you work out alot, you naturally consume more (or you have to because you're burning so many more calories) Your water intake is probably a lot higher too because of the long workouts. The weight "gain" is probably just an illusion of water weight, not real weight gain. Or the fact that you may even be gaining muscle! 6 miles a day is a good amount, that's a lot of working out! So good job! Another thing tho, if you continue to walk 3.5miles in the morning and 3.5 miles in the evening, you'll reach a plateau and any weightloss will halt. And once the walking becomes easy, it won;t be much of a workout anymore. especially if you aren't sweating or completely exhausted afterward. You can to be constantly tricking and confusing your body in order to maintain the shedding of pounds!! So try spinning or the stairmaster or lifting or dancing or boxing! (boxing is so much fun!) Just walking and not switching up your routine can also be a reason for the "weight gain."
