Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight teenage girls


Avatar n tn I have digenerative disc disease and my neirologist just prescribed topamax, he said it would help with the pain and tingling but could result in weight loss. I am wondering if prescribing topamax for ddd is common among neurologists? I can't seem to find any other information related to topamax as a pain med, only information I have is that it's a powerful drug with lots of side effects, most not so good. The weight loss aspect is the only plus...
Avatar n tn If she has a heavier broader frame, it sounds like this might be close to ideal healthy weight. She might be putting on the pounds in preparation for puberty - both girls and boys plump up a little then. If she continues to gain weight really quickly, it's a concern. You don't say how long it's taken her to go from a girlish thin body to a relatively heavier shape - if it's a couple months, that's a concern that there is a metabolic problem.
Avatar n tn I went today for my first week weight check and my second weight loss for my first week is 9.5 pounds!!!! Anyone else using Phentermine and B12? I would love to hear how other people have done on these meds. Good Luck to everyone trying...I want to hear your story!
514715 tn?1338269858 The constant reinforcing of the message that thinness equals beauty, acceptance, and success compels a frightening number of young women to strive for this ideal at any cost. As an eating disorder specialist with 30 years’ experience treating anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and related disorders – and as someone who overcame my own battle with anorexia in my early 20s – I understand well the relationship between media pressures and the onset of eating disorders.
Avatar n tn im 38 and married of 14 yrs with 2 teenage girls. sex in the relationship is almost non existence, and only on his terms. if i ask for sex, he just tells me to go get it elsewhere. 2 years ago he was unfaithful to me with my best friend and i cant forget about it. i dont think he is being unfaithful now. on the other hand i am.
980724 tn?1248526205 Long ago a friend talking about all that was happening in her life as a result of having three teenage girls, stopped and thought for a minute and then said, "when I think about it, the years are passing very fast, it's the days that sometimes seem like they are never going to end". Thought you might enjoy that.
Avatar n tn To all the young teenage girls who are concerned about their breast size: I am 25 years old and I am a 36 B. I Have a lot of friends with large breast. Thay are always saying they wish they had smaller breast so they could sport around in all the cute shirts I show off in. Girls with large breast are sometimes limited to what they can wear. As for what guys think about it: I am a bartender!! Sometimes I hear things I should not. MOST MEN LIKE THEM ALL!
Avatar f tn I understand that this is the 21st century and its not like were living in the Dark Ages, but I can't seem to understand why people have such high standards about what kind of person would be ideal for them. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not the type of girl to settle with just anybody but I do know people who are picky to the extreme. I just want to know why is having a certain look and body image so important? Can't we all just be happy being different? Being just ourselves?
Avatar n tn Some young girls are very maternal and absolutely CAN do it. It's just not the ideal in MOST situations.But I think that so many women know the bad stories, so they just want to warn you that it doesn't always work out like a fairy tale. Best of luck to you whatever you do!!!
Avatar n tn this forum has slightly changed my negative attitude towards my 'thing' henceforth known as my BIG HAIRY PEACH! Rock on you big bump girls!!! ps Im 42 and a little over weight, was young and very skinny at one time, makes no real difference, the bump is still there, just have to live with it I guess?
Avatar n tn Try to get back to you weight at age 21. That is likely your ideal weight. Ben Cecil, MD When I was 21 I weighed 103 pounds, YIKES!!! I got some work to do for sure!!
Avatar n tn Once you hit 10mg the weight and bloating, moon face, etc will all pretty much go away. You may see a slight fullness remain, and a couple of extra pounds, but it does get much better fairly quickly. My daughter spent 6 months last year on 60mg, and then we started tapering over 3-4 more months, getting her to 10mg. She has lost 20 pounds this year in the first 3 months of the year. She is very thin again, and all the steriod bloat is gone in her face.
Avatar n tn I get my patients weight down to ideal with specific protocols based on their needs then wean off the supplements if they are on them and go towards a diet tailored to their likes. Eat healthy organic, watch portions and exercise regularly. FactFinder, you are likely right about hCG, but many of my patients hope you are wrong.
Avatar n tn I know the feeling. I am 51 and have recently lost about 25 pounds, but have consisently exercised and taken buku supplements. I have noticed my tricep skin puckering at different angles as well as my thighs. You feel like "this is the thanks I get for watching my weight and taking so many supplements that my stomach is screaming!" Forgive me, but at least on a forum, I can be a "crybaby" rather than put up the good front that I do throughout my real day.
Avatar f tn For example, I have Interstitial Cystitis (bladder problem) and I take 25 mg of Elavil for pain. I have zero problems with Elavil. Didnt gain weight, none of the side effects. But if you search the internet, some people swear that Elavil is the devil. I took a chance and it worked for me. It sounds like you thought this out and that is great. Whehter or not you decide to take or not take Armour, I wish you the best!
Avatar n tn On the other hand, there are a couple of things bothering me... I've always had problems with weight and I gain weight very easily. However, in the past few months, my eating habits are much healthier and I feel as if I'm eating less. Even so, I gained about 8 pounds in 3 months (since I started taking it). So I was wondering if it could be it? I mean, I didn't expect to lose 8 pounds, but by what I'm eating and exercising I should have lost 1 or 2, no more than keeping the weight, but....
Avatar n tn I sincerely want to get back in shape and lose weight, but excerise comes to a SCREECHING HALT when it comes to sit-ups due to the pain associated after reaching 4-10 sit-ups. At first I thought it may have been from childbearing, perhaps the loss of muscles or maybe some damage was done. Throughout all the weight gain over the years and unstable weight fluctuation I became confused! Afterall, childbirth can do a lot of damage to a womans body.
599170 tn?1300977493 i don't doubt they would prefer to be healthy- who wouldn't? but would they choose not to exist? i agree birth control use is ideal, but no birth control is 100% - so you still need to be prepared for the possibility. it's part of responsible sex.
Avatar n tn I have read about other people with mood swings and weight gain though. I was informed that the hormone release was minimal. It had to be because i am allergic to the pill etc...I guess we are all so different though and as I said I did read about other people having problems...
Avatar f tn Even with a tapon to control the discarg, I tend to overflow and gush a little. I suspect, some of this is just extra fluid build up / water weight being released from bloating. During my period, I tend to urinate alot, as my body purges the extra water weight. I usually gain and loose around 5 pounds each time my period comes and goes, due to the bloating. I am not a doctor, but I figure that this discharge is one of the many ways my body sheds the water it retained.
Avatar n tn Also I have gained weight on the IUD, about 30 pounds. My apetite is insane and my teenage acne has flared out of control. Oh well...Good luck.
162948 tn?1205256292 -) And Andi, Congratulations. :-) YAY! any girls yet? I got the IUD in fear of having another baby, but I actually have NO desire to have sex anymore...I think I'm just flat out unattracted to the boyfriend... anyway. thanks.
Avatar n tn It has happened to me numerous times over the span of more than a year (since I started having actual sex), with different, attractive girls - it is CLEARLY not the girls' fault, but rather, my own impossibly-perfect fantasies and the desensitization that stemmed out of them. This MUST be recognized as a medical condition. It seems extremely popular - and for every person who comments on threads such as this one, there has to be thousands who remain silent.
1693826 tn?1308867985 I spent 9 months vomiting nonstop and had trouble with food, liquid and weight. You sound highly dependent on others, and that shows you're not prepared for the care of another life.
1160836 tn?1332333769 My husband and I just talk about what its going to be like when we have kids, I tease him about what it's going to be like when we have a teenage daughter (he's never had to deal with girls only boys) Its sad, we actually have 3 dogs and a cat and refer to them as "the kids" lol hmmmm.... someday..... I hope.....
Avatar n tn It's just 'too' unusual for someone with a previous history of varicoceles to induce low testosterone almost over night. Regarding your testicles, do you feel like they change weight/size or density (sometimes 'soft', other times 'hard') throughout the day? Have you noticed any scrotum skin changes? With the exception of having your penis 'shrunk up' while off TRT, what other symptoms do you have? If you feel the TRT makes you feel a little better i would stay on it.
