Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight of a woman


140437 tn?1215113342 As a recovered anorexic I was amazed to discover that at 9 stone 3 and 5 ft 4 I am concidered over weight. How ironic that after years of being under weight I should now - as a healthy woman finally - be concidered "over" weight at a UK size 10 US 6. Thats obscene - is anyone making money from this?
4261944 tn?1530523938 I'm going for my run Sunday morning and Monday morning, and then swimming on Tuesday, I think I can safely say that extra muffin I shouldn't of have won't be a complete disaster. Will be so happy if by a stroke of genius I get to 12 stone 13lb at least on Tuesday!! It feel good to be out of the 13 stone zone. It will be the second zone I've broken. Only two more to go if I make it! Mmmmm....muffin Update: weighed myself Sunday morning just out if curiosity, weight is sill going down lol.
300624 tn?1405472717 I recently lost a large amount of weight. 276 pounds to 150 pounds. I have been struggling for the last year to keep off the weight and have fluctuated from 150 to 160. Right now I am 153 pounds. Using the weight calculator I should weigh 121-135 pounds. Is this realistic for a 53 year old woman?
7149587 tn?1388559096 Exercising in water can be an ideal choice! Tai chi is a form of exercise and meditation. Strength training burns calories. Use an exercise ball for abdominal crunches, situps and resistance training. Perform functional exercises, which use your body weight as resistance, for general conditioning. For example, practice sitting down in a chair and standing up. Step up and down a curb or a step on your porch; this uses stabilizer muscles while improving your balance.
2100308 tn?1388500439 A friend of mine who is a "big girl" did IVF, she had PCOS and needed the help. They told her that her chances were reduced but they went with her. If you are seriously over the normal weight, simply for your health and the likelihood of carrying safely you need to lose, but if you are only somewhat overweight they should not dis you for it.
Avatar f tn I gained 38 my pregnancy. You are almost done! You're doing good! That's a very healthy weight gain!
1339332 tn?1329857966 above my dream goal weight. These are NOT insurmountable numbers! A gallon of milk weighs 8.8 lbs and a mid-weight chihuahua weighs 4.95 lbs (based on the competitive standards specified by dog shows that "ideal" chihuahuas will weigh 3.3 to 6.6 pounds). So, I am 5.2 jugs of milk or 9.29 chihuahuas overweight. How stupid is it that I can't enjoy life or consider myself attractive or "date-able" because I am 9.29 chihuahuas overweight???!!!???
Avatar f tn Just need a little advice. I know the normal weight gain is 25-30 pounds for a woman who is at their ideal weight before pregnancy.
Avatar n tn Doctor said just to eat healthy, don't eat a lot of junk food and that every woman progresses at her own rate. I know women who've gained 65 lbs. during their pregnancy and others who've gained no more than 15. We're all unique! :) Hang in there...once your precious bundle arrives, your pregnancy weight gain will be the farthest thing from your mind! Good luck, sweetie!
Avatar f tn So I'm 34 weeks and I gained 26 pounds. The doctor says that's a lot of weight and everyone else says I'm fine. My friends told me they gained up to 70 pounds and their babies came out nice and healthy. How many pounds did you ladies gain at 34 weeks? Should I be worried I'm gaining a lot?
Avatar f tn I'm sorry she made u feel bad that's terrible but while fast weight gain may be a sign of gestational diabetes it's not a guarantee it will happen to u, since I was the opposite with weight gain and I have GD! I had no indications before the standard test... My advice is to just stay as active as u can and eat as clean as u can and as long as u and baby are ok, alls well :) Good luck momma!
94902 tn?1330483267 I feel like I am all water - a have alot of fluid everywhere - hope this is the reason for my weight gain.....My boobs are huge as well before I got pregnant I was a 34AA now I am a 36C!!!! My husband cant believe it!!
151154 tn?1208134182 I had a very healthy little girl and my stomach basicly deflated after the birth, It was a lot of fluid weight..I'm sure you are retaining a lot of water too.
Avatar f tn And it seems that at this point my body only requires 500-1000 calories a day to stay at a steady weight, with most days erring on the side of 500; I can afford a couple 1000 calorie day "splurges" a week for eating out but the other 5 days of the week I really do eat about 500 a day. I'm only 5'3" and this keeps me below 130 and at a size S where my clothes fit. I'm hoping the added activity from cardiac rehab will help.
1272624 tn?1395437957 Hi ladies! I'm here, too! But in a bit of a lull with having to taking off two months. :( I am discouraged for sure. The process seems to drag out forever and there does seem to never be much good news. Luckily I am ovulating, but every pregnancy I have is a chemical pregnancy. My belief is that we are all closer than we think. The RE's know that we have issues conceiving, but since they don't know how to fix us, they slap us with the label of DOR, bad/old eggs, perimenopause, menopause, etc.
Avatar n tn The oldest woman who has given birth in our local hospital's maternity ward was 56, and she breezed through it. The reason the weight is a problem is because of issues with blood pressure and gestational diabetes. The only age-related concern that I have heard is that they might want to induce slightly early if they think the placenta is getting less efficient towards the end of the pregnancy, a tendency that increases with maternal age.
Avatar f tn I am 5 feet 4 inches, with weighing 115 lbs before pregnancy and now I am in 27 week and weighing 150lbs. I was at ideal weight before pregnancy and I look perfect in that weight. Now, I gained almost 35 pounds which makes me look very fat. Everyone is surprising after looking at me..... and in the last trimester it been said that we gain more.... which keeps me in terrible. I don't know what time do.... I know that I should not limit food, Bcoz my little one going to hurt.
Avatar n tn I was flat on my back because of pain and a lack of energy. I lost 15 pounds. I went to the emergency room because of the pain. I had a CAT scan, ultra sounds (vaginal & regular) an IVP, urine tests, blood tests, and a PET scan plus I saw 3 different doctors-Oncologist, radiologist, and internist. They could find nothing wrong. I was taking vicodin sometimes 2 pills at a time for 3 months.
Avatar f tn I suggest buying a heart rate monitor. Figure your heart rate by this formula, The Karvonen Formula is a mathematical formula that helps you determine your target heart rate zone. The formula involves using your maximum heart rate (MHR) minus your age to come up with a target heart rate range (which is a percentage of your MHR). Staying within this range will help you work most effectively during your cardio workouts.
29837 tn?1414538248 Here is a quote regarding response to treatment and weight of a person. "Factors Influencing the Anti Viral Response As with all other anti viral therapies for hepatitis C, the particular genotype of the infecting virus has the greatest influence on the sustained virological response to therapy. In those individuals infected with genotype 1, the expected SVR ranges from 43-46% and in those with genotype 2 or 3 infections, from 76-82%.
Avatar f tn To answer your question I have to ask a few of my own. 1.) How old are you? 2.) How tall are you? 3.) Are you born male or female? All this matters. Say you are a ten year old boy who is 4'6" then it would be bad for you to weigh 100lbs, you'd be too heavy. You should weigh 70-80lbs then. What if you were a 20 year old female, 5'0", and weighed 100lbs then you'd be under weight, not healthy either.
15480 tn?1302533402 I don't remember what my gain was at the point in my pregnancies, but I gained 50lbs with my first child....and 35 with the second. I am in EXCELLENT condition now, and I'm in my 30's and have a 3&4 year old. My dr. didn't yell at me, but I did feel that I was being reprimanded like a bad child for my weight gain. Are you over weight? If so, it would be more harmful to gain unnecessary weight.....In addition, if you don't feel good about this woman, get rid of her now!
Avatar f tn However, that's not ideal. Why are you having an MRI of your breasts? This is not a routine screening tool. Our suggestion is to speak with your doctor and find out what their recommendations are and please let us know what you are told.
Avatar n tn I am a good-looking woman, but I feel unattractive now because of my weight. I should not be missing out on my last days of youthful sexiness because of these crappy SSRIs.
Avatar f tn I know what you mean about the weight gain and self-esteem. I had lost a lot of weight and was thinner than I'd been in probably 20 years. I was riding and had a nice, flat stomach. Then we moved to this place and everything fell apart. I gained 25 pounds over 2 years. I got rid of some of it, but I feel like a whale. I hate how my clothes look. That is why I really, really hope that I don't gain anything on the lithium. It would be a huge blow. Thanks for the input.
Avatar m tn All this, and three and one half years SVR now, and still plagued with a variety of after effects. The weight thing is getting scary, and I am not sure that I have it in me anymore to both diet seriously, and exercise regularly. Before tx I went to the gym three to five times a week, for at least two hours per body was tight, muscular, and I had stamina. Now, I feel like more of a flabby, achey, zombie!
Avatar n tn I still refuse to believe that my weight gain is a direct result of my surgery. I did notice that most of my weight is around my stomach which is an area I never had a problem with. I am going to make an effort to get back into my old routine of exercising etc and will see where it takes me.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar n tn I think there may have been some initial weight loss but once my body got used to the medication I gained much of what I lost back again in a few years. I think the initial weight loss occurred because my body wasn't used to the medication which resulted in any excess junk being removed from my body (meaning I had to go to the bathroom a lot, mostly runs). I think it took about 2 months before my body settled down I could lead a normal life without worrying about where the bathroom was.
