Ideal weight in stones

Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight in stones


Avatar f tn Can you tell me what my ideal weight is? (Preferably in stones or pounds - I don't understand kgs). I'm trying to lose some weight (I'm currently 120lbs) through walking and watching what I eat.
Avatar f tn I have read that it helps with weight loss and I am having a really hard time with my weight due to all of the other meds. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?? Thank you in advance.
Avatar f tn I also wore heavier clothes, clunky sneakers, and stuffed my pockets for weigh in. I did have to take a a weight based reduction during my first round of treatment but they never threatened to pull me off tx. If you are a weight dropper on tx ice cream is your best friend .
Avatar n tn I am sure that it has its uses but weight loss in my opinion is not one of them. In Febraury of 2005 I went to the doctor comlaining that I was eating to much and my memory was poor. With no hesitation or questioning he mentioned that I should try topamax. I took the pescription but did not get it filled. About two weeks later I went to see him about something else and he asked me how the topamax was going. I told him that I really did not want to take a drug for the problem.
Avatar n tn I had a hyster in 05. Same situation as all of you. I have gained 23lbs after working at Weight Watchers and losing 52lbs in 03. I have started researching weight gain and hysterectomies just yesterday. I am a Christian, believer in JC.
Avatar n tn I am 34 years old and just started weight watchers in efforts to lose the extra weight.... additionally I have started to go back to the gym... but I also have made up my mind to go back on the depo. This weight has to go!!
Avatar n tn personally i think its better then weight watchers as its more private! i dont like talking about my weight in public so this was ideal for me! it may not be any physical help, because its down to us to be exercising.... after all it is us that wish to lose the weight! but as a mental help, it is amazing! i dont know if this helped.... but i hope it did!.... good luck! if you have any more tips etc.. please feel free to leave a message!
Avatar n tn yet it's lately that I've gained the most weight. I am not in pain, I just feel miserable - like over due. When I asked at the doctor's office what could cause this & what we are looking for they said 'a cyst, tumor, or cancer'...... I would kind of like a bit more information if at all possible. In the last week I gained another 10lbs & I know this can not be good or keep on.
213398 tn?1202674074 that's more than 20% greater than your ideal body weight and is technically overweight even if you don't feel or look heavy.
93210 tn?1287457826 But I DO NOT appreciate being lectured to by a total stanger who has no clue about my medical history or what I have or have not tried in an effort to lose weight! Who are you anyway? Are you a physician who specializes in weight loss? Because a person like that is the only person I will take a lecture from and only when he or she has full knowledge of my medical history. I suggest you tone down your comments that you write in the future to other total strangers.
Avatar n tn It is either a vibration or a sensation of filling up with liquid. No other symptoms are there. No pain in urination, no pain in sex, have been married for many years with one partner, and no urge to go to the bathroom. It happens randomly, and lasts for 3-6 seconds then goes away. It is irritating but not painful. Any thoughts on this issue would be helpful.
393419 tn?1228450993 9-10 weeks. . .ok, I'm at the half-way point. . .these tingles and sensations are the worst part for me. i don't mind the synthroid, i'm even taking the hair loss & weight in stride. . .those I can deal with, but the thought of taking all that calcium and/or having another bad drop and tetany attack. . .it freaks me the h@!! out. thanks!
Avatar m tn For most of my adult life I have been in good shape, maybe as much as 20lbs over my ideal weight at times but usually fit. About six months ago, I started having a hot sensation in my lower back and a combination of both pain and a weakness feeling in my lower back. This would happen in the early AM hours, eventually it gets intense enough that I can no longer sleep. Usually I wake up, dismayed usually.
Avatar n tn Hi, I've been suffering sinus, throat and ear trouble for about 2-3 years now (maybe longer). I'm 24 years old and in good health otherwise - ideal weight, non-smoker, good diet, regular exercise. Please could you give me your opinion on what is wrong with me. Here are my symptoms: Stuffy/blocked nose throughout the day - the severity alters, but theres is always some stuffiness and dryness in my nose and throat. I don't get a runny nose.
1916673 tn?1420236870 It's more than likely it will be a urinary tract infection, which is common with kidney disease, but your vet can confirm it. It needs treating. Antibiotics are not ideal in kidney disease, but needs must. Next, the red blood count is actually high, not low, according to my understanding. And this is very likely due to dehydration. This makes fluid therapy much more important. If I were you, I would ask about starting Sub-Q fluids at home.
Avatar n tn I wake every morning with horrible pain in lower back (kidney area) that radiates to the front of stomach (rib area). I have had battery of tests and found nothing. I am only able to sleep 5-6 hours before pain wakes me, also unable to take a deep breath until I get out of bed (very painful just to roll over), once I stand and get out of bed the pain almost immediately starts to ease. After about 20 minutes of walking around and after first morning void, pain disappears for remainder of day.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar n tn You may have liver stones. Stones actually form in the liver and since you don't have a gallbladder they get backed up in the ducts. Doing a liver flush is the best thing to do, it worked for me. Taking out the gallbladder is not always the solution as I found out. Taking a hi lipase food enzyme to digest fats also helps me.You can take a tablespoon of epsom salts in 3/4 cup of cold water(yuck, I know!). If your pain subsides it probably is stones. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Benadryl is also something of an anti-emetic, and can be given at 1 mg per pound of the dog's weight, but I doubt it will be very effective in the face of this kind of vomiting. Worth a try though. Another thing that helps is calcium - lots of it. I was giving Chica 2 Tums a day during her last couple of months. The calcium binds to phosphorus which is deadly to those in renal failure.
Avatar m tn So it's possible the food particles are becoming lodged in the thick mucous lining my throat, but I am really concerned that some type of pocket may have formed in my throat just below my tongue that is catching the food particles and along with mucous, saliva and bacteria is now forming tonsil stones, since I have discovered pin-head sized tonsil stones in the mucous before when I pushed it up out my throat.
Avatar m tn Since the day I got married I had problem with my in laws because they are so actively/passively aggressive and manipulative. They always told hurting words to me and I spend almost two years each night crying to myself and sometimes complaining to my hubby. My hubby used to console me but could tell nothing to his parents or sister about their wrong behavior to me.
Avatar n tn My sisters are all in their 70s. My arms are way worse than theirs. The only difference between us is weight. They are all significantly heavier in terms of fat mass. The cause of this appears to be primarily hormonal. I know I first noticed the dimpled, cellulitey appearance above the inner elbow when I was 52. This past year has added a wrinkled and sagging appearance all down the inner arm. Curiously, my facial skin and skin tone looks like that of someone in her early 30s.
Avatar f tn Eventually this became my downfall - eating out 4 nights a week soon piles on the pounds. One year after quitting the gym i was 13stone. I had put on over 2.5 stones in a year!!! My ideal weight is between 10st 2lbs and 10st 6lbs. I decided that i was not going on a beach holiday until i lost the excess weight, so didn't holiday for 2 years :-( This summer i went to Spain on a city break and although i really enjoyed it, i wanted to get back into my bikinis.
Avatar f tn My mother (73, overweight, gave up smoking in 1978 but drinks more than ideal) started a cough about 4 months ago and lost appetite, lost weight, became nauseus, bit depressed adn forgetful. About 3 months ago a minor exertion resulted in a fracture in a spinal vertebra and about 1 months ago a minor knock resulted in broken wrist and she was diagnosed with osteoporosis and given calcium that made her very sick so she stopped. Recently also diagnosed with start of kidney stones.

Avatar m tn Could this be gallbladder? I had an ultrasound in March for some GI issues, but that scan didn't identify stones. Could stones appear within such a short period of time? Could I have a different issue besides gallbladder? Or how common are gallbladder issues without stones? What should the next steps be? For context, I'm a male, mid 40's. Non smoking, normal body weight / height (170 lbs, around 5 ft 11 inches tall). Thank you.
Avatar m tn I wrote once before and explained that my meld score went beetween 19 and 22 for well over a year I had very elevated blood tests highly sensetive encephalopathy very yellow retaining water pain from gall stones and I looked like I was gonna go at any minuite.I got real sick was out for about 4 day's not knowing nothing when I came home I was weak and not very moble for almost two months nausea etc.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am a 30 year old female of ideal weight for my height and last night i wet the bed, seemingly for mo reason at all. I am currently undergoing all sorts of tests as I have had no periods for over 3 years, somehow in the middle of this I managed to get pregnant, which my partner and I were delighted about. My baby is now 11 months old and my periods have not returned.
Avatar f tn The rate of weight loss is beginning to slow down quite a bit now but at least it is still going down. Yesterday, I knew that I was going to have a “ready meal” from Sainsburys…. So because I already knew the meal would contain 783 Calories I budgeted this into my 1000 calorie allowance for the day. For Breakfast I have 75g of cottage cheese & pineapple (60 calories) and the same for lunch (60 calories) so this left me 97 calories for pudding – so I had 97 calories worth of strawberries!
