2053729 tn?1330435506 According to what I have researched, my BMR is 2485 and I eat about 1800 calories a day, so I should be losing weight just being me. Add in the approximate 2000 calories I burn with my exercise and I should be melting into a puddle! We do a lot of weights, pilates, abs, pushups, strength bands and squats at my aerobics class so I know my body is changing. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? I have had my thyroid checked in the last 4 months and it was "normal".
Avatar f tn I had my thyroid removed in January 2007 due to a multigoiter and since I have had it removed I have been gaining weight despite dieting and exercising. I have never been this weight in my life. I usually weigh 160. I am 5'8" and am solidly built. I did a bodybuilding show in 1999 and now I currently weigh 200. I don't know what to do. My doctor isn't helping at all-seems he doesn't know what to tell me. If anyone can help I would be indebted to you for life!!
Avatar f tn In the beginning of my pregnancy I lost weight instead of gaining it then when I got to my second trimester I started gaining it
4945970 tn?1361450429 I'm 12wks 5dys is it normal to lose weight instead of gaining I'm not trying to lose weight but I have lost 12pounds Is that normal?
Avatar f tn I went to the doctor a couple weeks ago but last night I got on the scale and it shows that im losing weight instead of gaining weight (and i eat alot!) I only lost like .8 lbs but still it makes me paranoid. Why am i losing weight instead of gaining?
Avatar f tn It's also possible that 166 was not an accurate weight or was due to water weight. Not that gaining 6 lbs in a week is impossible, but it's unlikely. That would require an extra 3000 calories per day. Extra. I doubt you're eating 4500-5000 calories per day. :) More likely, you were closer to 161-162 last week aside from water weight, so the 163 this week is right on target.
Avatar f tn I am a little concerned as to why i am losing weight. I lost 7 pounds, what should i do? Is that healthy? Is it normal?
Avatar f tn If you have extra weight on before your pregnant you usually lose weight at the start or stay the same weight which is what happened me, I was losing weight as he.
4193337 tn?1355698372 t stopped eating or anything but I do force myself to drink lots of water and am back to eating tons of fruit. Is this safe that I am losing weight? This is my second pregnancy and I know during the last few weeks you can lose a few but I am still a ways away from that. Any thoughts?
Avatar m tn Prior to becoming an endurance athlete, eating a diet low in saturated fat with ample fruits and vegetables, I did hypertrophy, bodybuilding type training. I started having really bad anxiety and getting panic attacks while lifting weights so i stopped that all together. I then began having anxiety more frequent outside of the weight room. It has recently began to subside.
Avatar f tn So my dr told me that I am losing weight today at my appointment. I know its natural in the first trimester but my dr is concerned and says I need to start gaining. Problem is I am never hungry. I eat a small meal at lunch time and feel completely stuffed the rest of the day/night. Anyone have any suggestions?? I'm already high risk, I don't want anything else to happen too!
Avatar f tn Ill be 6 months this month should I be be concerned that I'm not really gaining weight?
9455625 tn?1412820762 No losing weight is actually normal if not in excessive amounts
Avatar m tn While certain foods are necessary to help build muscle, exercise, particularly, weight/strength training is best for building muscle.
Avatar f tn Idk your not supposed to lose weight in pregnancy. I mean sOme ppl get really sick and help it but you really shouldn't lose just to lose. You should talk to your doctor about it.
Avatar f tn Muscle is your friend... however, make sure your strength training (weight lifting) is utilizing low weight and high repetitions... you most likely do not want to bulk up.
Avatar f tn My doctor wants me to loose weight but its cause I am over weight. I lost 3 ponds but gained it all back plus more. So it depends if you are healthy then you shouldn't loose weight.
Avatar f tn Im 15 weeks and ive been losing weight instead of gaining it...is that normal?
Avatar n tn I am 9 weeks pregnant and this is my first pregnancy and instead of gaining weight I am losing weight. I haven't had any nausea or vomiting in the past 2 days but I am still losing weight. I am scared that this could affect my baby. Is there something wrong or is this normal ?
Avatar f tn Diet aids such as Releana are not the best way to lose weight. While you might lose a considerable amount of weight on it, which might be nice, the chances of gaining it all back, once you go off the med are extremely high. I can't think of anyone I've ever known, who would stick to such a "diet" for any length of time.
Avatar f tn You have Graves disease with hyperthyroidism -- would consult with an endocrinologist to determine best treatment options. We often use either tapazole or treat with I-131 (radioactive iodine).
Avatar f tn i am 14 weeks and 18 years old. i am having trouble with gaining weight and cant seem to stop losing and im eating more then i use to. what am i doing wrong??
Avatar f tn So I had an ultrasound today again, I'm about 11 weeks. In the last month I've lost about 8 lbs. I was a little bigger before my pregnancy. I haven't been vomiting or anything but I've been losing weight. The baby's heart beat and everything was normal. Have any of you other ladies lost weight during pregnancy without throwing up? I'm kind of worried.
Avatar f tn They say long has your not gaining alot of weight in a short amount of time your fine
Avatar n tn It's diet and exercise!!
