Avatar n tn Your ideal weight depends on your age, as well as your height and weight. A child's ideal weight will be different from that of a teenager and a teenager will be different from that of an adult. There are a variety of exercises that will burn fat.

479244 tn?1271563659 Does anyone know anything about the IDEAL study? This is where I think the info came from regarding my original decision to go with the pegintron.... less relapse rate, less sides, stays in system shorter amt. of time when you come off , etc. My new nurse, said that study had a lot of flaws and she did not put a lot of faith in it and talked me into pegysus... any comments would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn Hello, I am a 29 year old female, 5'4 and 131 pounds. I recently lost over 100 pounds in the course of a year through diet and exercise. (starting weight 244 in September of 2010). I have always been overweight, and now have a lot of excess skin, which is to be expected. My question is about my ideal weight. My goal started at 150 pounds, then 140, then 130, now I'm thinking my ideal would be 120.
Avatar f tn I'm 6 weeks 3 days pregnant. I'm absolutely exhausted. anyone have any tips or anything to get some energy. I've been sleeping a lot but I also work third shift and take care of seniors. Not the ideal schedule. Any pregnancy super foods that really do give you an energy boost.
Avatar f tn your best weight depends on several factors besides your age. How tall are you? What is your body type, i.e., small boned, large boned, average boned, medium boned. The best thing to do is type into your internet, "Ideal weight, or what is my ideal weight"? The internet will help you figure it out. I am 5'11" tall and my ideal weight would be 105 lbs. (if I were younger) to 112 lbs. I have a small frame.

Avatar f tn Your midwife or doctor will let you know how much weight is ideal for you to put on during your pregnancy. If you have a normal BMI they say between 11 - 16kg weight gain is fine.. I at 29w and I think I have gained around 10kg so far, but in the beginning weight gain was very slow! At this stage I think your fine :) But remember weight gain is not all you putting on weight.. bub, fluid, placenta all add to it.

1816210 tn?1327354884 Probably not a good idea to try to take your mother's walker......... lol If insurance, disability or Medicare won't cover one, check out a local hospice thrift store or something; they can often be found very inexpensively at such places. My neighbor got one for an elderly family member for around $5. You can do a google search for videos that will let you see what Yoga for Seniors is like. Google "Yoga for Seniors youtube".

Avatar f tn Hi there and thanks so much for posting this question I would suggest that at your age you are careful with changes in your metabolism. What is metabolism? Metabolism is a collection of chemical reactions that takes place in the body's cells. Metabolism converts the fuel in the food we eat into the energy needed to power everything we do, from moving to thinking to growing. If you want to lose weight The safest amount of weight you can lose is anything from .5 to 2 lbs a week.
144586 tn?1284666164 Thanks Caregiver reminding us or for bringing this great information to the attention of the Senior Health Forum. There are select states that do provide free classes or college for seniors in varying degrees and levels. Unfortunately I have not been able to find any free to tuition for seniors in my state. I understand that Texas is among the states that do offer free tuition. Any senior interested in additional education should take advantage of this for a multitude of reasons.
Avatar n tn Goodness knows the cost of meds for seniors is often huge. A Shame!! There are assistance programs but this usually varies by state... also as you suggest, manufactures often offer breaks for seniors.
Avatar f tn Given your height of 5'4", a body weight of about 146 lb. would give you a BMI of about 25, which would put you at the top of the range of what is generally considered an appropriate weight.
