If you're trying to lose weight, you know there are ups and downs. Mary Ward "Wubbie" Hendrix is a 27-year old Atlanta area school teacher who is trying to lose 60 pounds. We've been following her journey since October. At her last weigh-in with her personal trainer, Mike Granatelli,
she was unpleasantly surprised by what she saw: She had gained four pounds.
But Granatelli is encouraging. "The good news is you're still down eight [since October]," he said. Hendrix, however, is frustrated. "I feel like I work out really hard, and I'm gaining weight," Hendrix said. Granatelli, in turn, assured her that everybody goes through these ups and downs. "Everyone loses, everyone gains again, so you just have to keep progressing," he explained.
