Advice for sticking with adjusted plan!



Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So at my (almost) 8 weeks they adjusted my plan and bumped my calories up by almost 200 a day... and my fat... and my carbs... and my calories, because I simply wasn’t getting much in, and had lost 80 lbs in 3 ish months and they said for me that was a bit faster than they wanted to see it come off especially since I still haven’t been cleared to exercise yet. Well that was about 11 days ago and I’ve been doing right by my new NUT plan and getting everything in... well I’ve GAINED almost 9 lbs since then. And it makes me sick. Honestly I’ve cried every time I’ve gotten on the scale so finally, I just put it in the cabinet and deleted the entries from my app.

I keep telling myself they know best and just stick with it, but seeing those graphs going the red way and not the green way is very NOT encouraging. I just need some positive words!! Thank you :)

eta: not cleared to actually do what I consider “work out” but still walk 2.5 miles AT LEAST per day!

according to my calculation, you'd have to eat an excess (above and beyond what your body needs) of 2853 calories a day to gain 9 lbs of true weight, so that's not what's going on. It's probably Water retention.

Your body stores Water along with carbs. So like @catwoman7 said, you're seeing that extra water weight on the scale. I like to keep calories up, but carbs on the lower side, for many reasons, that being one of them.

Glad to hear you are trusting your team. As others have said, what you are likely seeing is just Water. Once your body adjusts you'll start to go down again and probably put yourself in a better position for long term success.
