3360193 tn?1365871889 I dont wanna lose it all at once then pile it back on.
Avatar m tn You say she is losing slowly. That is how it should be. The body does not like rapid weight loss and will act accordingly! If she has stopped using the Medifast diet her weight may increase. It is vital she has her blood tests done and to see if she is truly hypothyroid. If so her medication will need adjusting and she should keep the weight down, provided she eats healthily and continues to do physical excersise.
Avatar f tn I'm 5'8". I weighed 225 lbs when I found out I was pregnant. I made a bit of an effort to exercise more but otherwise haven't changed my day to day life too much. I'm now down to 205, although I got down to 200 at one point. As long as the weight loss isn't "intentional" and it's coming off slowly and healthily it's fine. Your provider will let you know if you need to worry.
Avatar f tn t think you should be concerned too much about your weight. Just eat healthily and make sure you get out and exercise daily with your friends. In short - enjoy yourself!
Avatar f tn Maybe eat at least 3 different food out of each food group every day , and a snack here and there every day --- eat breakfast , lunch and dinner no matter what is its. :) Hope this helps!
550943 tn?1330727580 Hey I was 127lbs when I got pg w Jeremy and the last time I had a weight chk right before I delivered him I was 210 lbs. I'm now at 146. I work out 5-7 times a week wether it's in the gym or out for walks w Jeremy. I try to watch what I eat as far as junk food etc. I eat 3 meals a day w some snacks I do have chocolate here and there or maybe a slice of pizza but all in moderation. I'm in the same pants I wore at 127 I now have muscle tone which I didn't have before.
Avatar f tn Has anyone started out overweight and lost weight, healthily, simply by eating healthy and exercising more? I'm honestly obese and want to have the healthiest pregnancy and was curious about the results anyone else got. Thanks.
594189 tn?1386916607 Also try to stay away from a lot of sweets like pop and junk food, water is the key and start out slowly with a moderate exercise program, walking is good, just stay moving all the time.
Avatar f tn I really want to lose weight. I am 70 kg and 163 cm tall...am only 20 years old..I need help..I want to be 55kg in only 3 months ...N.B: I love chocolates alot...I want a diet food planning because I do no sports coz I have exams this month...please help ..
Avatar f tn Losing weight quickly is never good and causes yo yo effects. Regardless to one of the comments earlier swimming is the number 1 best over all total body work out. Have you ever seen a fat swimmer??? No. As for losing 5 lbs in one week that is probably mostly water weight and not actual fat loss. You need to find your calorie maintenance number and shoot to be calorie deficient by no more that 500 to get the body to lose weight healthily.
Avatar f tn 500 cals isn't a starvation diet. In fact most 'starvation' stuff I.e. starvation diet, starvation mode isn't more than a myth. If she can maintain it healthily and go back to 'regular eating' subtly she'll continue losing weight quickly.
3360193 tn?1365871889 Yeah I have been eating quite healthily during pregnancy so I haven't gained any weight - the Midwife thinks I've lost about half a stone or so but the scales haven't changed because of the baby weight etc so quite glad about that, but I do have a decent sized bump so I know I'm going to be left with a bit of a tummy after giving birth.
Avatar n tn I HAD THYROID SURGERY 2008 ,I HAD BEEN FIGHTING WITH HYPERTHYROID 4 YEARS AND KEEP LOSING WEIGHT AND LOOKING SICK, I HAVE A SMALL WAIST, LITTLE BREAST AND NOT TO MENTION I WAS ONLY 130lbs NOW IT'S 2012 AND I WEIGHT 234LBS, I TRIED DIETS, I RARELY EAT BUT I ALSO HAVE TYPE 1 DIABETES BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO
9455625 tn?1412820762 It's normal. My weight is constantly going up and down and I'm 31 weeks.
Avatar n tn t suggest trying to lose that much that quickly. Healthily, you should be looking to lose about 2lbs a week, and the weight is unlikely to stay off if you go at a faster rate. However, if you are intent on losing more weight, I can only recommend that you remember to drink plenty of fluids, as well as listening to your body in order to make sure you're getting enough energy.
Avatar f tn gain yoyo w/ a BMI of 25 to 30. When I set my mind to it, I lose weight healthily (1-2lbs/wk) via weight watchers, but I constantly feel starved & eventually fall off the wagon. I've always (for as long as my memories go back) been inflicted w/ a consistent & persistent large appetite for mostly healthy foods (just too much of them). I previously combated that w/ regular vigorous exercise 30-90 min/day.
Avatar f tn These types of weight loss are not recommended, because they lose weight too quickly, and are most likely losing water and muscle, not fat. Nearly all lost weight is regained as soon as the plan is stopped...
957549 tn?1273722033 Your question is a good one and you're right to be concerned. For those of us with eating disorders it can be a hard balance to lose weight but not set off our ed's. When I finally got into recovery (after 30 years of my ed) I realized that it wasn't about the weight for me but about the craziness that my eating disorder caused. I wanted THAT gone more than the extra weight.
1253197 tn?1331209110 I have been exercising more than every before (going 2 x a week to gym and swim) and am eating very healthily. So me thinks it is most likely the combinatisom on of gabapentin/amitryptiline that is causing that tummy to stay the same shape. When I was on the trial yesterday there was a lady there having some treatment and she said she switched from gabapentin to pregabilin (lyrica) and this stopped her putting weight on.
Avatar m tn l know losing weight is the solution but its difficult as l cant do much walking but l am on a diet and slowly losing weight but it takes time. l am wondering if you have any advice on how to make it better, is losing weight the only way that will cure the problem, could my weight have casued permanent damage and the pain will be there for life?
Avatar f tn i was bound to an opiate addiction for almost 10 yrs due to chronic pain and am now 2 and a half yrs sober. i had a hypothyroidism problem as well, and was prescribed medicine to help with metabolism. to give you an update as to where i am today... i am still taking methadone for chronic pain. i stopped taking zoloft 2 months ago at my own volition and do NOT take any SSRIs. i no longer have a thyroid problem, and no longer need to take medicine for it.
Avatar f tn ve been on lepraxo for approaching now 3 weeks my appetite has been more normal and I have been losing weight although eating healthily and quite regularly which has been something pleasing. I'm unsure about what you mean by pulse problems but i'd explore this with those involved with your care.
