29837 tn?1414534648 This is the weight I weighed at 27 years old. For many years now, my weight has been 185. The now weight of 175 lbs. is a loss of 17 lbs. in less than 3 weeks after leaving the hospital. Funny thing is, my appetite is ravenous, my blood tests all came beck fine last week, as well as still cleared of Hep C. My energy level is normal I've heard somewhere that because muscle weighs, it has to be taken into consideration when weighing someone.
Avatar f tn First is he losing weight in the face of a normal to increased appetite, or is he not eating well and losing weight? There are many causes of weight loss in older cats. For example there is Diabetes, Hyperthyroidism, (overactive thyroid), and Kidney Disease, just to name a few. I would first recommend a physical exam from your veterinarian. Based on that physical exam, hopefully your veterinarian can get an idea as to weather that tumor is a problem or not.

The average activity level per week was 208 minutes in the first year and 189 minutes per week at the end of the three-year study. Another study in China showed that increasing physical activity can reduce the risk of develpoing diabetes by 46%.
203342 tn?1328737207 Ok, guys, pacify me. I think I'm just getting paranoid and it's ok to tell me that! I just lost my dog last night and I was just thinking that Misha is only a year younger than Willow and I hope I don't lose her any time soon. Tonight as I was holding her and petting her, I rubbed her belly (yes, she's one of the few cats who let you rub her belly!) and she seems to have lost quite a bit of weight. I don't know in how long.
Avatar f tn If I go out to eat I find my self unable to eat my food if I have an older person as my waiter. The more close relatives in my family age the more distant I grow from them. I especially don’t like older people touching me, let alone any one touching me. I’m going to have to get over this eventually…I just need to know how?
Avatar f tn I went to Dr. John Guice in Decatur years and years ago and was very successful in losing the weight. Now I am older, life has happened, and slowly the weight has come back. Dr. Guice no longer is in practice. Does anyone know a Dr. in my area (Florence to Decatur) that will help with meds and a low carb diet or something better? Please, no low-carb lectures..I have heard them all. Thanks!
Avatar f tn m currently trying to get my cert 2 in community studies. The people in my class are people who gosip and complain a lot they seem to thing that other peoples lives are more interesting than there own. While I'm a very strong willed person and I can ignore there stupid comments and there negative attuide(example one person said that I need to just suck up my anxiety and get on with things lol) Ignoreing comments take my energy away from something els I could be doing.
Avatar f tn Also, if you do in fact have thyroid issues you might reconsider your Type II diagnosis, because people with one autoimmune disorder tend to be, in fact LADA/Type 1.5 misdiagnosed as Type II.
Avatar f tn As my doc put it, the baby is acting like a parasite and taking everything it can from you. Make sure you're getting the nutrients that you not need. As for me, I was overweight to begin with so he said that he wouldn't be surprised if my final pregnancy weight was lower than my pre-pregnancy weight.
Avatar n tn Fighting through the sluggishness and fatigue of hypothyroidism is difficult, but adding daily exercised can be a great aid in losing weight. If you aren't currently exercising, start with an easy walk. Get plenty of rest. The National Sleep Foundation reports that people who sleep less than 6 hours each night have a higher body mass index than people who sleep 8 or more hours.
Avatar f tn Im going to be 27 weeks . My doctor said some people loose weight some stay the same some gain as long as babys developing its ok . Its an adjustment to your body.
Avatar f tn Hello there, It would be really dangerous to you to lose that much weight, ie 15 lbs in 2 weeks. A good amount of weight is about 2 lbs per week. The middle of August is about 4 weeks away. Even in 4 weeks, unless you go on what I would call a drastic diet or a starvation diet which would probably put your body in shock, you can't lose 15 lbs in a healthy way. Some people might think that if you drastically reduce your calorie intake, the weight will just fall off you. This is not true.
Avatar f tn Mine is visible when lying down, with some people it sticks out more. When I lost weight, I noticed it more, so perhaps with the pregnancy, it didn't show as much. I also was worried when I discovered after losing the weight! take care and enjoy motherhood, Laura p.s. some people get stomach aches from taking Wellbutrin, it's a known side effect. Wellbutrin is an SNRI and I found I reacted badly to these with anxiousness and gut pain.
Avatar m tn i posted here about prediabetes number in myself and did not believe when people say nondiabeteic dont go above 120, but now i prove to myself this true. i almost never go above 110 now even after pizza or spaghetti or other heavy meal. this after losing some weight doing more exercise and eating less carb for 4 months. my fasting in morning is now 80-90 range most times < 85.
1519805 tn?1291058650 As you mature, it will be more and more difficult to lose weight. However, large amounts of weight gain--with no change in diet or activity--usually hints at a medical condition. So make sure you rule those out first. First of all, there's nothing easy or quick about losing weight. I'm so frustrated with commercials and billboards that promise fast results. A fat camp means you'll lose weight while at camp, but then what happens when you get home?
Avatar f tn Some people do lose weight as they get older - that's getting rid of baby fat - but it doesn't sound like you really have much fat. At 5'9", and 136 lbs, you are not overweight. Maybe you just need to tone your muscles. Your body is still developing, but it sounds like you will be fine, if you exercise and eat properly.
Avatar f tn Losing 10 pounds by Sept 23 is not a reasonable goal, as that's too much weight to lose in such a short time. Most likely the reason you can't stick with a "diet" is because you're cutting your calorie intake too severely. Nobody can stick to a diet in which they don't provide enough food. If you provide adequate calories of healthy foods, chances are you won't have any trouble losing the weight and keeping it off.
