Losing weight keeping it off

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight keeping it off


Avatar f tn It depends on your size prepregnancy usually. I was a bit over weight & lost 15 lbs due to nausea & my DR said it was ok. I'm 21 weeks & have only gained 1.5 lbs. As long as you are eating healthy when you can eat the baby will get the nutrients it needs. My little one is measureing bigger than he should even with my weight loss.
Avatar n tn s keeping you from losing weight. By eating regular meals, you can better incorporate a mix of vegetables, protein, whole grains and healthy fats into your diet. Snacking, typically, ends up being fruit, candy bars, crackers, sandwiches, chips and all the things that aren't so good for you and tend to make you, either, gain or hold onto weight.
Avatar f tn The medications could have something to do with it, but it also depends on other factors, as well. For instance, have you had thyroid levels tested to be sure you don't have low thyroid hormone levels? Could you be suffering from insulin resistance or PCOS. Other factors include diet and exercise. Are you keeping calories in line? Do you get any exercise, at all?
Avatar f tn Anyone know if nutritional drinks are safe I'm losing weight and already small before pregnancy.
Avatar f tn but if u get bad morning sickness u may not have a choice. try to keep ur weight the same or if it bugs u talk to ur doc. good luck dear!
Avatar n tn Your Thyroid could be not working properly. I was losing my hair & gaining weight rapidly & found out that my Thyroid was to blame. That is why I take a synthetic hormone for my thyroid now. I've stopped gaining the weight but before we had discovered what was causing all of my problems I went from a healthy 150lbs to an unhealthy 360lbs in about 6months time. Now that we have me on the synthyroid.
Avatar f tn I'm about 13 weeks and keep losing weight. Not sure why. I eat, but i know I'm not getting the calories I need. I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables mostly because that's what's sounds good. I'm also eating a lot of protein too. Anyone else experienced weight loss?
Avatar m tn Yes it is possible , typically people usually lose weight. I have not heard of weight gain but its possible. Just get plenty of exercise and eat clean. Zoloft is generlaly not a drug that will make it hard to lose weight. My guess would be the drug itself has little to do with the weight gain, maybe you are eating more as a result of feeling better. Best thing is to ask your doctor about it. I have been on it before and it actually killed my appetite.
Avatar f tn There is a woman on here, Barb135, she started a weight loss challenge for 2015. We are challenging ourselves to lose at least 1lb a week, she is super helpful and gives so many tips. I need to lose 50lbs still but overall have lost 10. What is working for me is keeping a food diary and tracking my calorie intake on here. My calorie limit is 1200 a day or 1300 max. With that, I walk if in outside just around my house.
Avatar n tn That's great that you're working out again and 4-5x a week is excellent. You didnt say how much you weigh or how much you'd like to lose, but if you don't have much to lose (doesnt sound like you do) the weight is most likely going to come off pretty slow. I'm trying to get rid of these last 5-8 lbs and it's taking foreverrrr. Exercise is just one part of the weight loss equation though.
971967 tn?1272991202 I have been losing weight since my last 2 OB visit. Over all 3 lbs till now. My doctor says it could be due to my GD diet! I had an ultrasound to make sure baby was growing well. And seemed like everything was fine. He was weighing 2.6 lbs at 29 weeks. So could a healthy change if you have GD like me.
Avatar f tn (well I think I lost a lb this weeks, from being so stressed out) but I gave myself a 35 lb weight gain limit. And I try very hard to stick with it, at first it was hard cause like you said, I never felt full. So now I just eat breakfast and lunch and dinner and a bedtime snack. And try to keep busy in between so I don't snack all day. So I have 9 weeks left and and about 10 more lbs before my limit.. I hope I can do it. I dont think you should worry if its not harming your baby.

Avatar m tn The last month of that years summer I gave myself a 1300 calorie diet with no outside food to see what would happen. I made it down to 135. I was able to keep the weight off for three months. Then I went back to the previous years Routine of 150 to 140 over an over again. Hadn't been 135 since then. Fast forward to this year being in issue. Started this year after the summer at 145.

Avatar f tn I agree with keeping a food diary - that will help you see where your calories are coming from and what areas you might need to increase of decrease. Make sure you get plenty of produce, both fruits and veggies; lean protein, low/no fat dairy, whole grains and "good" fats. Sometimes, we cut our calories TOO much and our body goes into starvation mode in order to hang onto fat reserves, so make sure you are eating enough calories.
Avatar f tn Yeah it is any good doc would advise you from doing it. They would tell you to eat healthy and keep active. Which will keep you from gaining a lot of weight. Because you are gonna gain weight but if you eat healthy it will mainly be baby your breast uterus amniotic fluid stuff like that.
Avatar f tn Healthy eating and moderate exercise are the best way to lose/keep weight off. You can't "spot lose", such as the belly, but you can tone the muscles, so it won't look as large. You might try yoga; it's excellent for toning muscles.
Avatar f tn I too have arthritis . Both of my knees are bone-on-bone. I am watching my food intake and have lost 13 pounds in 4 weeks. Walking is painful but I am already noticing a difference. My mantra is "a day at a time". Positive thinking and the support of friends and family are keeping me on track. Stick with it and you will succeed.
1285110 tn?1420147378 Remember - it takes 3500 calories to make a pound, so you have to drop that much in order to lose a pound. Quite often our bodies do not "work with us" and the older we get the more they seem to work against us, tending to be very unforgiving when we slack off. Are you keeping a food diary to make sure you aren't eating more than you think you are? Are you doing the exercise tracker to make sure you are using enough calories?
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 t kill yourself) and no soda, alcohol or cigarette smoking. The key to losing weight (and keeping it off) is to never diet... diets don't last! Changing your life does! Remember, real changes don't happen over night, things on life worth having takes effort, dedication and time. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Have you lost weight by dieting recently? The brain-body connection always tries to move you back to your previous weight. If not, you might want to visit your physician and have your thyroid levels checked. Now - if all else is normal.... Exercise Physiologist James Hill in Denver has found that people who have lost weight (50# or more) and kept it off for two years versus those who haven't kept it off have a big difference - they exercise every day.
