Losing weight quickly obese

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight quickly obese


Avatar n tn Most of the weight you would lose would be water weight anyway, and it would come back quickly. I recently consulted with a weight loss doctor who prescribed a sensible diet (moderately low carb) and the medication Adipex. That combination was magic for me. The diet resulted in rapid weight loss, and the prescribed medication made it easier for me to follow the diet. I did have to follow up often with my physician, but the results are worth it!
Avatar n tn - just that the right tests need to be run. I used to suddenly start losing weight also, for no apparent reason. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism a couple of years ago and it has since been figured out that I most likely had a problem for the past 15-20 yrs. I would suddenly gain a bunch of weight and nothing I did would take it off, then all of a sudden, I'd lose it (and sometimes more) just as quickly as I gained it.

Business woman2 Losing weight that quickly is not safe and phentermine is not a long term solution. Both my daughter and her husband were on the phentermine for a while; they both lost fabulously, but within a month of going off it, they both gained back everything they'd lost, plus some. Both are now obese, where they weren't before; just overweight.
Avatar f tn when I first set this uup I chose a goal weight that still kept me obese... I want to set a new goal weight that gets me to simply overweight, without erasing my history and success in losing weight up until now....
2099190 tn?1333443526 t know what to do now since I really want to lose weight. Am I obese? What should my exercise be? What are the foods I should eat more often? Thank you in advance! God bless you!
Avatar m tn I can also feel nodule underneath the skin (not sure if in fat of facia) and if these are pressed, the pain is tremendous, often radiating all over. I also have difficulty losing weight - I know every obese person says this, and I don't say I can't lose weight at all, but I do it much more slowly than others, whether the diet is Weight Watchers assorted type of Atkins low carb and no matter how much I exercise. Is it normal for fatty tissue to be painful?
Avatar f tn This article is from a well known hospital and they state that losing weight when obese does indeed reverse some of the cardiovascular issues someone may have due to obesity. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/news/media/releases/losing_weight_sooner_rather_than_later_gives_the_best_chance_of_reversing_heart_damage_from_obesity_according_to_study earlier is better 9as in the younger you are) or the sooner the better. Yes, some damage could remain but this gives someone the best chance.
Avatar f tn 140-160 pounds is overweight, 170-220 is obese and anything beyond that is morbidly/extreme obese.
Avatar n tn re not the most important tool for choosing a diet -- some high calorie foods are very good for losing weight, some low calorie foods are bad for losing weight. The real issue is how you metabolize and digest your food, and that will differ by the person.
Avatar f tn Happened to my mom in her third pregnancy, my sister was healthy and healthy weight, but did deliver early and quickly. They managed to get to the hospital but my sister was born in the hallway at the hospital because they didn't have time to get her to l&d lol. Good luck!!

About a month ago, I developed 'skipping' heart beats - I could feel them when I took a carotid pulse - heart rate not fast, just skipped beats which I could feel in my chest.
Avatar f tn Thank you for the reply, I've not actually had any morning sickness. But I can't wait to feel my bubba :3 Hopefully i will lose a little weight. If not will strata going swimming once bubba is here.
1931709 tn?1335833095 I am 21w5d and have not gained any weight. I eat and take my prenatals every day, but still no gain. My doc said the baby is growing and she is measuring right on for how far along I am. I was considered obese before I was pregnant (178lbs).... Do you think its bad that I haven't gained anything? This is my 4th pregnancy, and I gained with all the first 3.
Avatar f tn I went thru this same problem. I had to loose a good amount of weight and my periods have been coming some what regular. I did get on some hormonal pills to help with the irregular periods and to help stimulate ovulation, bc I wasn't ovulating like I was supposed too. My dr told me about some medicine, Fertibilla - Concieve Easy and I've been on that for about 2 weeks. Working great so far. Good luck!

6905554 tn?1386942249 This will then give you information whether your weight to your height is fine, under or overweight, obese or morbidly obese. If you are overweight, the thing is to eat healthily and losing 1-2 pounds a week is considered a safe and steady way to lose. Best wishes. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn What are your stats? Unless you are morbidly obese losing that much weight only aged 13 is detrimental.
Avatar f tn works best for us right now,but im losing weight,so later we might try different ways,for me being with a large woman more depends on how she takes care of her self,and how she carries her self.
Avatar f tn No i dont think its bad as long as you keep doing it the healthy way with out restricting your calorie intake then its ok..
