Avatar f tn Its good you've set a goal and are looking to find out how to achieve it! However losing 15 pounds in a month is unrealistic and unhealthy. Did you know it takes about a year for your body to adjust to losing 10 pounds? It's important to remember weight loss is a marathon and not a sprint. In order to lose weight and keep it off, you shouldn't look at it as weight loss but a way to become healthier!
Avatar f tn I was 215 when i found out i was pregnant andi lost over 20 lbs within my first 5 months ... At 36 weeks i still haven't got back up to 200 (not that i wanted to) but i think it depends on your starting weight ... Just as long as you continue to eat right the weight loss shouldn't b a big deal ...

Avatar f tn I take reglan. It's the only thing that helps me. Tell your doc about the weight loss too. That's pretty severe.
Avatar f tn perhaps you have an underlying medical condition that is preventing weight loss, such as hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, or PCOS that is preventing you from losing weight. If the hormones in your body are not balanced correctly, you will have a hard time losing weight. You should ask your doctor to run some simple tests to verify that you don't have a medical issue causing you to retain weight. In addition, make sure you check side effects of any medications you take...
Avatar f tn you should be fine I lost 10lbs and then gained 13 and now at 38 weeks im losing weight again. I was worried about it and my midwife told me long as the baby is growing its nothing to worry about. Im also losing weight because I cant hold anything down most days.
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?

Stress can also cause some weight loss so the stress of a new job cam be causing some of that as well.

Avatar f tn I lost 10 pounds In less than a month but i had problem getting food into my system because of all the queasiness but weight loss during the first trimester is normal as long as you make sure to drink your prenatal vitamins, that will help you a lot with all the nutrients you and your baby need during weight loss.
5915949 tn?1396188227 I have lost 25lbs so far and the drs tell me they want me to keep losing weight. How is that healthy for baby? I mean I eat healthy and exercise regularly. Weight has always been a struggle for me.
Avatar m tn regardless of being told Levoxyl will keep me from being symptomatic, will it also keep me from losing weight? Is Levoxyl inhibiting my metabolism from losing weight as well as gaining it. Last year for six months I kept my diet to 2000 calories , circuit trained everyday and maybe lost 5 pounds. I'm 240 pounds.....
Avatar f tn The key to losing fat belly is self-motivation, exercise, eating a more healthy diet and consuming fewer calories than you use up. You can also add skin products like thermofit for losing weight or body wraps for tighter appearance of your tummy. Be positive that you'll eventually loose it.
Avatar f tn Im 84 lbs 4"10 and i have been losing weight im 9.
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 When you tone muscle it becomes a heavy mass, heavier than fat, therefore you will weight more but as you said losing inches. This is totally normal and healthy! Im a qualified personal trainer and what you described there is totally normal, your losing weight in a healthy manner which is hard to do so fair play to you, keep it up! The thyroid will set you back and losing weight will take longer! If you are worried and need any advice you can PM me!
Avatar f tn I talked to my midwife about weight loss during pregnancy or just not at an average weight.
Avatar f tn I am 3 weeks pregnant and I am 5'7 and 230lbs. Granted I have a lot of muscle due to my line of work but I'm still over weight and have quite a but of excess fat. I wouldn't be so worried about losing it right now if it wasn't for my joints being bad the way it is. How much weight loss is safe this early in the pregnancy?
10946054 tn?1417108117 No honey bunches, I don't think it's bad because I used to think the same thing. I'm in the same boat as u luv. I'm 32wks and I haven't gained 1lb. I've lost right at 30 lbs, but my doctor assures me that it's fine and my baby is fine. So now I don't worry about it.
Avatar f tn Every appointment ive lost 3 or 4 pounds. I am, however, over weight. I also know that I shouldnt be losing weight. Ive had no morning sickness or anything. My doctor doesnt seem bothered but this Im 15 weeks now. And its bothering me.
1669446 tn?1303551937 I have been using for the last 15 years of my life, and when i say using, that includes every drug possible. When I quit on February 20th, i started losing weight rapidly! I went from a size 11 jeans down to a 0! is that normal?
Avatar f tn I havent had any kind of morning sickness, so I know I'm not losing weight for that reason. I get nauseous when I smell something that don't agree with me but have never got physically sick. I am drinking plenty of fluids and always have water with me where ever I go. My friends and family tell me its normal to lose weight before gaining it. I do take walks everyday and I'm not sure if that could have something to do with my weight loss too or not.
Avatar f tn Here is the answer to this question. In order to lose weight, you have to subtract calories. Safe weight loss is 1-2 lbs/week, so in order to lose 1 lb/week, you'd have to drop 500 calories from your BMR each day (1 lb is equal to 3500 calories, so 500 calories X 7 days = 3500 calories or 1 lb). OR you can drop 250 calories from your diet and increase exercise to use an additional 250 calories. Changing up calorie counts and exercises will help prevent plateau.
Business woman2 If you have stopped losing weight, then probably you have reached your ideal body weight and need to maintain that. Hence check your BMI and see. If this is not the case then you need to change the exercises you are doing and also your diet plan. Take more of fiber rich zero calories fruits and vegetables, clear soups, lean cuts of meat, fish, egg whites etc along with smaller portions of carbs and minimal amount of good fat. Take care!
Avatar f tn Grace, Unless you have a medical condition that's preventing you from losing weight if you take in less calories than you burn you will lose!
