Doctor's appointment, more exercise, eating a little more and weight gain

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

November 8th I had my blood drawn and I hate needles. I was suppose to see my nurse practioner but she wasn't there because her children were sick and she stayed home with them. I got my results back and everything but my b12 was good. I am glad about my blood work being good. My b12 was high. I had to reschedule to see the nurse practioner. I saw her yesterday. She thought I may be taking vitamin b12 by itself and I told her that it was in a multivitamin. So she said to continue taking that. She went over the medications that I take. She asked me about exercising and I told her I exercise everyday. She asked me about eating healthy and I told her that I am adding in more fruits and vegetables now. She had me do a EKG and she said that looked good. I weighed a few pounds more on their scale because of my clothes. She asked me if I was up to date with eye exams and dental appointments and I said yes. I need to see her again in May 2020 but she asked me if I wanted the appointment set up yesterday and I said I would set it up later.

I think I may be up in weight tomorrow. I do my elliptical for 1 hour and exercise with Cahthe' s basic step for 30 minutes or sometimes for 1 hour or I'll do Cize for 30 minutes. I get a paragraph at the end of the day saying in red that if I exercise more I should eat more. I've tried eating more a few different times including this week. I have been eating 1,400 or a little more instead of 1,310 calories and I always gain some weight when I do that. I don't understand why I am gaining weight with eating a little more if that is what the site suggests. I am getting a little discouraged with my weight going up the past couple of weeks. I guess I will have to go back to eating 1,310 calories or a little more to lose weight. Does this happen to anyone else that the site tells them to eat more and when they do even with increased exercise you end up gaining some weight?

    I always take their calorie increase as a guideline only. Sometimes I think the numbers are for maintenance not weight loss.

    Remember if you're working out more you're building muscle. Also fluid or inflammation could cause weight gain. I'm always told to drink more water to get rid of fluid. Not sure if it really helps. But I'm weird anyway.
