I am doing jillian michaels yoga meltdown for 1 hour every day for the past 8 days.I am currently on steroids s/p renal transplant. I gained 2 pounds in this 8 days. I feel depressed. Since I am on steroids I cant perform weight bearing exercise. Can anyone suggest? after weighing myself I dont feel like exercising anymore
I can understand your feeling of being depressed after doing an exercise routine for an hour per day (whatever it is) and then having gained two pounds at the end of it.
Losing 10 lbs. of weight in a month (and keeping it off) is optimistic at best of circumstances, and your situation is different. My colleagues have already recommended that you have this issue taken up with a physician and/or dietitian, so there is nothing for me to add to that.
What I want to address, though, is your comment that you don’t feel like exercising any more. Your experience certainly seems unfair; having put in a effort, and being so poorly re-payed for it. But don’t forget that exercise does more for you than what you can see on the scale. Improving body composition, for example, does not show up on a scale, and neither do better strength and flexibility.
Try not to let the number on the scale take control of how you feel or feel about yourself.
I wish you a happy and healthy New Year.
