vigorous exercise? what kind? depending on what you were doing, weights for instance, versus aerobics and calisthenics, you could have lost body fat and gained muscle mass. since the latter is about 2x the density of the former, you would lose overall size, but not necessarily weight. The phenomenon is also possible with the aerobics and calisthenics, but not as likely.

I had this exact same issue a while back. It turned out I have an autoimmune disorder that gives me hypothyroidism. I would say go to your doctor and get checked out.

Congrats to you on your 15 pounds. Clearly his being a different person with a unique body and chemistry that, while composed of the same elements and compounds, is still fundamentally different from yours in that it's not you, went over your head though.

This is probably what happened. I've been going at it a few months and while I do look better on the scale I have lost no weight. The scale is a bad way to gauge the healthyness. The ones that give you muscle and fat percentage are better.

Autoimmune and thyroid issues. But now I’m having the opposite issue and it’s not from thyroid. Neuro issue is making it so I can’t eat. No appetite. Throw everything up. Can’t stop losing. Doctors all next week to get the bleeding to stop. Then I’ll worry about getting it back. Agent Orange. The gift that keeps giving.

I also couldn’t lose because of medications I was on at one time. Switched to MMJ and it started melting off. Was back to target weight until head injuries kicked my neuro issue into overdrive.

Of course you haven't lost weight, you have under eaten and most likely malnutrition, if you body doesnt get what needs to build muscles you get none, instead your body goes starvation mode and you wont lose anything.

Fruit is high in sugar and carbs. If you want to lose weight you have to stay away from both. Try South Beach Diet or Keto. Good on the exercise though.

or he could just look at calories in calories out? South Beach and keto diet rely on denying your body a certain class of nutrient that it needs. a balanced diet, one which relies on burning more calories than you take in is the most assured way to achieve weight loss. the other thing to remember is that weight lost is weight lost, be 1 lb or 4 lbs, progress toward your goal is progress none the less.

I'm guessing you probably gained in muscle mass. That's generally heavier than fat.
