Genetics: Your profile says you are 50. At that point you are not going to grow, no matter how long your arms are!

Hello. I started working out in 2013, then I stopped working out altogether. 3 years later, my arms and legs look smaller and I gained weight. Why?
That's what happens: When we exercise less, our muscles get smaller and weaker. When we continue eating more calories than we use up each day, the extra is stored as fat (awaiting the day we have a famine and need to use the stored fat). That's how nature works. To reverse this, one can just eat or drink FEWER calories than is being used each day, and resume exercising. ...Read more

What does it mean when you're 31weeks and the arms and legs are measuring 2weeks behind at sonogram screening
Not much: Because you are 3/4 of the way through your pregnancy, those ultrasound measurements are less and less accurate regarding due date calculation. Now, we are entering into the arena of size/shape variability. This is probably completely normal. At this point, the most important things on ultrasound are heart, brain, kidney, and other vital organ evaluations. You have 9 weeks of booties to knit! ...Read more
Who cares just start: If you were previously in good shape, it will likely take less time, but it takes anybody time to adapt to exercise. The rule of thumb is that it takes twice as long as the time away from the gym to return to your previous level (eg 1 month away takes 2 months to recover). If you have been gone for a while, give yourself at least 3-6 months to work back into shape. ...Read more

If a doppler scan of arms and legs comes back negative for blood clotting, does that mean there are no blood clots in my body anywhere else?
No, but...: It's extremely unlikely. Unless you have other symptoms. It is possible the small clot travelled to your lungs and would present as a pulmonary embolus. Ct is the best test for that. However, a blood test called d-dimer would be positive. If your duplexes and d-dimer are negative, it would be extremely unlikely to have a clot anywhere in a patient your age. ...Read more
