I am a little embarrassed to be asking/worrying about this, especially after telling you guys how wonderfully I'm doing with food and weight and stuff recently, but...whatever, here goes:
First, my weight has made a little jump over the past few weeks. I'm trying not to freak out—has anyone else noticed their weight go up after exercising? Intuitively it doesn't really make sense to me, and I'm trying to see this as a maybe-normal fluctuation, but UGH. I hate gaining weight. Especially when I'm trying so hard to stay motivated, work on body image, keep my calories up, and even increase my intake a little. Objectively, I know that I'm not eating too many calories, so I worry that my metabolism just permanently sucks or something.
Second: My period is late and no, I'm not pregnant. Do you guys think even the small amount of exercise I've been doing could affect it so quickly?? I've literally done maybe an hour total of cardio (mix of running and biking - both light) over the past month, and weight lifting on average twice a week. My cycle has been pretty darn regular since July, so I can't think of what else would affect it. Dr. A didn't say anything about the hormone treatment having any impact, and it's such a low dose anyway. Besides, I started that back in December and have had two normal periods since then.
Anyways, hopefully I'm just being paranoid as per usual. Happy Saturday, everyone.
