Gaining weight when trying to lose weight

Wednesday, December 26, 2018

Ever since I saw a dietician at the beginning of December, I have been very strict with my healthy diet and staying on track by logging my food every day, making sure I don't eat too many carbs, sugar, or calories. I've also been walking at least 30 minutes every day. I was weighed at the sleep clinic today and I'm up to 266.

Has anyone else experienced this, could it be my uterine fibroids and polycystic ovaries causing weight gain despite being on a dietician-recommended weight loss plan?

    Thanks Gould. I actually feel groggy or fatigued most of the time but have more energy compared to November, was able to paint my kitchen last week. My sleep doctor showed me the data from my cpap machine, he called my results remarkable, 99% improvement, so we think the likely cause why I feel groggy is due to hormonal issues created by the uterine fibroid and polycystic ovaries. I notice I am more sensitive to sugar now, I got some chocolates for Christmas and eating just two pieces made me extra fatigued for about a day afterwards, but I don't get that feeling after eating fruit, my dietician's advice to add a serving of fruit with every meal or snack has been working very well at preventing sugar cravings. I am going to start focusing more on ab exercises, my abdomen is my weakest area and is where my body stores the most fat, but cramps and pelvic pain from the fibroid make those kinds of exercises difficult to do consistently.

    It could be so many things. For me, when I've been away from healthy eating and exercise, it takes my body a while to respond in terms of weight loss. Most important - how are you feeling? Make sure you are drinking plenty of water, that can make a difference. Adding exercise is key. Your body may be adding muscle. This will benefit you as more muscle = more calories burned. Keep going, I feel with what you are doing, the scale will cooperate soon. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
