Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight by frame size


Avatar f tn and I cannot loose any weight, I eath what I think would be considered healthy, try to exercise but even when I was fully working out I never lost any weight, I used to be a size 5 and now I'm size 10-12, I just keep atributing it to having had 3 babies in 2 years (second pregnancy twins) but now that I see that there are others having the same issue I guess it is yet another P.O.T.S gift to me! great!

Avatar n tn I had the idea to combine Wellbutrin with the Lexapro to help stop the weight gain and at least keep me where I am (I only register 8 lbs above my ideal weight on the BMI scale). My doctor agreed to try it and it is the perfect combo for me. I take 20 mg. Lexapro and 150 mg. Wellbutrin each morning. My OCD symptoms have all but disappeared and the depression is totally gone. Also, I have been able to pretty much maintain my weight, but have not lost any weight.
Avatar n tn a friend of mine's mom went through this and she went from a size 18 to a size 10 by eating bananas during the day and special k for breakfast and then having a very light dinner and walking every morning and every night. i 've been told more than once that bananas have a natural weight loss in them for females.. dont forget grapefruit also.. it uses more caleries to digest than it actually has in it.. so its a great snack and its filling.. use real sugar on it tho..
Avatar n tn I forget to eat, don't want to eat, strive for that smaller size, although everyone tells me that that is enough weight loss. I will be 50 years old next year, and look all of .... well, lets say no one guesses I am 50. I did an extremem makeover on myself without surgery, I tell everyone (hair, makeup, body and attitude...) Topomax works for many things. Just be careful. I am dropping the WElbutrin to see if that picks my appetite back up a little so I can maintain a size 4.
Avatar n tn But even with that porportion, I am totally disgusted with a size 18 and 207 lbs so my goal is more of a size than a weight. I'm working back toward a size 10/12... I'm hoping to be there by March when I turn FORTY...
Avatar n tn by the way i'm usually a peaceful person free speech and all that but what you called her daughter in your post really went to far it was enough to say that she had gained some weight and you were concerned but to go out of your way to call her"rounder, heavier, and extremely fat" and to say she needs to lose her "flabby gut" and " that" she has gotten very fat" for fifteen lbs just wrong i hope you don't say those things around her or your home i would hope no
Avatar n tn my family and boyfriend blame it on muscle weight, but as small as my frame is, my weight is extremely unnatural. No matter how much i try, the weight seems to stay the same and my self esteem is at its worst.
Avatar n tn I wouldn't worry...I think all pregnancies are different...With my daughter I was so sick I lost weight for the first four months & was told repeatedly by my doctors (& ER doctors when I wound up in hospital) that it was ok, that the baby is getting all the nourishment it needs which is probably why I was so sick - she was sucking it out of me =). I caught up quickly after that & managed to put on 45 lbs on my last 5 months of preg. Hope this helps!

Avatar n tn I am new here, and after reading these posts, I see that I am not alone with these symptoms. I am 55, post menapausal, and have gained 40 pounds in 2 months. I too have had to buy larger size clothes to fit my larger size. My 5'5" small boned frame went from 150 lbs to 190 lbs so fast! My PCP gave me a lecture on my weight gain and ordered TSH and CBC twice. They all came back within normal limits.
Avatar n tn The med has worked wonders on my depression, but has played havoc with my weight. The Dr. says it won't put on weight on by itself. He says I'm feeling better and this is why the additonal pounds due to eating more. My consumption of food has decreased and I'm eating healthier foods. Yet, I still put on the pounds despite exercising 45 minutes 3-4 times a week. I don't under stand this and what to believe.
Avatar n tn I am sometimes so surprised by the insensitivity people have when discussing weight gain!!!?? Don't they know how crazy women can get just by thinking about it! And not to mention, a pregnant women! You are doing very well!
Avatar n tn Hello! I am so glad you posted! I am 36 years old-had a hysterectomy (leaving ONLY my left ovary) and I have gained about 45 lbs. But just right before that, I had a baby and had gained 40 lbs. So total weight gain over the past 5 years has been 85 lbs. Being only 5' 3/4" -I am considered obese. :( I had always been active, and never really had to worry about my weight, but it seems no matter what I do, I can not lose the weight.
Avatar n tn I'll be 20 in april and currently weigh 167lbs and i am 5'3 so its way to much weight for my frame..I am hoping to get down to 130 to 140 by may 24th..I have struggled to loose weight for 3 years now, I am so excited to start tomorrow I cant sleep!! Hoping my confidence will boost and my stress levels from disliking my body will change soon!! was wondering if anyone could recommend how many shots a month to get for the amount of weight (25-30 lbs) by end of may?
1829603 tn?1379328434 I am 5'2 133 lbs with a large frame and people think I weigh less than I do because my frame makes me look smaller weight wise then I am. My little sister is 5'2 with a small frame and weighs the same as me but people think she weighs more because the weight is distributed differently. Physically we are both in our normal range according to BMI but our doctors only say that I am considered a healthy size. I also just had a baby in May and since have been building muscle.
Avatar n tn How to Determine Bone Frame Size By Fiona Miller, eHow Contributor Knowing your bone frame size can help you in reaching your optimal weight. People with "big bones," or big frames, are meant to carry more weight than those with small frames.

Avatar n tn I didn't show with my first one till around 7 months, and around 6 months with baby #2, but I did lose quite a bit of weight in the beginning of each one. I'm right at my ideal weight, not too thin, and definitely not overweight. People didn't ask me till I was around 8 months though, then I had an obvious bump. I did however have a tummy early on, due to bloating. I would wake up with a flat belly and by hte end of the day I would look very pregnant.
Avatar n tn I had planned to give it about 6 weeks and if things hadn't improved reschedule for earlier apt. But by July things seemed to pick up a lot, (with exception of getting pneumonia in one of my lungs in early aug) perhaps helped by two sun vacations, so I returned to endo on 12th sept. at this stage I felt great, back to myself in mood, full of energy, upbeat, positive and happy.
Avatar f tn I gained almost 30 by 7mnth or sooner but hv been actually maintaining weight well I'm 32wks hvnt been gaining so much weight yet
Avatar m tn I just checked my frame size and unfortunately is small frame size. Darn it, but its not like scrawny. M4 whether or not one uses Quick Mass or not, don`t you need hypercaloric intakes just not tooo much (that will add fat) to build muscle anyway. I will keep this information in my mind whenever I need reassurance.
1544507 tn?1293634965 I asked my doctor a few years ago if they adjusted the normal weights and heights for kids over the last however many years. He said no. The weight you were supposed to be 30 years ago is the same as your supposed to be today, there just aren't that many people that aren't overweight. There is a different "normal" for everyone. It depends on your muscle mass and bone structure. Someone who has no muscle and a small frame will look very large carrying around 20 extra pounds.
Avatar n tn After 5 months, however, my weight shot up by almost 20 lbs...which is a lot for someone with a very small frame like me. I am currently working on getting off zoloft, but I do caution everyone to do this very, very slowly. Withdrawl symptoms will be far worse than weight gain! I'm already noticing a difference in my body as I am getting off zoloft and I'm hoping to get back down to my trim 115 lb body!
Avatar f tn but I am not and never will be a size zero. It's just not my body type. I have major curves and the perfect weight for my body frame is about 140. I am happy within myself and my husband always tells me that I'm sexy, so that is ALL I care about!
Avatar m tn Hi, Weight loss to your ideal weight, or as close to it as possible, can help you get healthy and stay that way. Given your excess weight and sedentary lifestyle, it is possible that you can develop other obesity-induced disorders, such as diabetes and hypertension, if you do not lose some weight and modify your lifestyle. It is obvious that weight loss will bring about a significant difference to your current problem, given its physiological and psychological impacts.
Avatar f tn I know that when I give attention to the struggle of weight loss I will never attain my ideal weight. I have changed my thinking and by doing this I have lost weight. I have noticed that my clothes are fitting loosely and I feel totally energetic. I enjoy walking in the park and am feeling so free from getting off this weightloss roller coaster. It is working for me. I am giving attention to healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle it seems to be working and I am only concentrating on that.
4726133 tn?1361993373 I don't know if you feel inspired to get creative with your cooking, but the right spices will make all the difference in a meal. Here is a link discussing a recipe using tumeric which I think is quite good. I have learned that most of my favorite foods come down to how they are seasoned. I agree about organic products, particularly with meat. http://www.medhelp.

Avatar f tn WHY THE HECK would I take a beta blocker that can have potential life threatening side effects in and of itself for a benign heart condition that is only exaccerbated by Levoxyl or my thyroid levels being off??? As a side note... My GP doc said i've read too much about my condition.. What the heck does that mean? i'm educated about it so that makes me difficult to treat? I've done what they've asked and i've followed their method of treatment and look at the condition i'm in now...
