Ive been going to the gym five times a week, at least 30 mins cardio and starting weights. At the doctor today I had gained 5 lbs! She wasn't concerned bc my clothes fit the same and feel good, but I am a bit disappointed.

High porosity, fine texture.
Just started this journey to natural curly territory, so I have no "regular" routine yet.
