Losing weight young

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight young


Avatar f tn If you're thin to begin with, it's more of a concern than if you're a little heavy or a healthy weight. A lot of girls lose weight the first few weeks because they're too nauseous to eat. Are you losing significant amounts?
10286987 tn?1410261849 It is important to make sure that this journey is followed up with medical appointments. Find out your grandparents and parents medical history. You are looking for illnesses that can affect you. You also need not to get on FAB diets. Do it right, good eating and exercise. Remember that sometime personal emotional problems create eating disorders. It is your life and you need to be positive and own it.
199373 tn?1270487632 I gave birth 2 months ago, and I'm losing weight at a semi-slow pace (I'm breastfeeding so I cannot overdo it). I ordered an elliptical, and plan to workout on it for atleast 30 mins a day. I seem to be losing well in all places but my face and arms. Any advice on how to trim these two areas? Or should I just be patient?
Avatar f tn Id like to lose it all asap. Im very young, dont even have my license yet, only my permit. When I was younger my parents didnt really care how much I ate so I kept eating and they had bad eating habits themselves. They have lost alot of weight after thier divorce. I have tried and tried and was recently diagnosed with PCOS. Which makes me prediabetic and alot harder to lose weight. I dont know how to lose that much weight and stay motaviated until I start showing progress.
Avatar n tn My nine month old Boxer is losing weight. He eats well and only throws up if he over eats. He loves to chew/eat all sorts of things like plastic water bottles tools. I am afraid maybe something is stuck.
Avatar f tn Drinking huge amounts of water and losing weight mean something is going on, that needs attention.
Avatar f tn I am 16 and my hair has been thinning for about 2 months. I called my doctor and she told me to go see an endocrinologist because my periods had stopped for about 2 yrs. and to tell her about my hair, so she could check for any hormonal problems. She ran a whole bunch, including thyroid and testosterone and all that, and she said the tests all came back normal.
1149046 tn?1264361586 For your height, you are just about perfect weight. Losing 20 pounds would put almost in the "underweight" category. I would not advise doing that. Here's part of a height/weight chart that applies to YOU.
Avatar f tn Internal parasites can prevent a dog from losing weight and they can also cause them to vomit. If she had fleas at any point in her life she could also have a tapeworm. Most wormers only handle the run-of-the-mill internal parasites like roundworm, hookworms, whipworms, etc., and a separate wormer is needed to kill the tapeworm, but there IS a wormer that you can get from your vet called Drontal that will kill all internal parasites INCLUDING the tapeworm.

Avatar m tn I am 22 years old! I am losing hair to the extreme. I can wash or brush my hair and I will pull handfulls of hair out of my head! This is concerning me. I need some help!!
1467664 tn?1288579313 m 5/5)and at one point was 81 pounds(yuck) I lookwd gross and felt worse.but in answer to losing weight the healthy way and not only am I a type 1 I also am a personal trainer.Timing meals ,excercise and insulin are important.Cutting out carb stotally is not a good idea because your body does need the enrgy especially when you are workinh out.Not sure what dose you are on but once you start a workout plan you will see your needs decrease .
Avatar f tn I would also set a realistic weight loss goal with your parents help. Some young people strive to be super thin and that can be unhealthy, so don't think we should be making recommendations here for you as you are so young. Eat a well balanced, healthy diet with variety to it. Lean protein, vegis and fruits. Take a multi vitamin and get plenty of water and sleep. Monitor your portion control so that it isn't too large but do not restrict yourself too much.
Avatar f tn well dear being that your so young sleep in the dark you'll grow taller then the weight will situate a little better you can exercise to help with not gaining as well as some small loss of weight and not eating at least 2 hours before bedtime really helps as well. Also all that helthfood craze stuff well get plenty of fiber you can stop by whole food or even a local health store pick up some psyllium husk so that it will help the food stay in your stomach longer.
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.
2188958 tn?1346444891 I think that was the key to me losing weight, bc as soon as I stopped nursing gained the weight back. My second it took about 6 months to get to my pre-pregnancy weight, and again I stayed skinny until I stopped breastfeeding, then I gained about 15 lbs. With this pregnancy I am much older, and I have gained so much weight already that I doubt I will lose it all very quickly, if at all :/ I plan to work out if I can this time.
Avatar f tn I wish they were smaller and more manageable. Would losing weight resolve this issue? Probably not because like I said they're still big even when I'm thinner. My PCP is a man so I'm embarrassed to bring up this issue with him. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn What have you been doing to lose the weight, to start with? If you aren't losing it in a healthy manner, it's much harder to maintain the loss. It IS harder to lose weight has we get older, because our hormones start to change and previous yoyo dieting, when we're young, makes it even harder yet.
Avatar f tn Muscle doesn't "weigh more". A pound is a pound, whether it's muscle or fat. Muscle is denser than fat, so the pound of muscle takes up less space than the pound of fat. Compare muscle and fat, to rocks and feathers, with the muscle being equal to the rock and fat being equal to the feathers.
Avatar f tn Have you calculated your actual height weight ratio to make sure you need to lose 25-30 pounds? What are you considering "end of this summer"? Many people consider end of summer to be about the time school starts; others take it literally and consider it to be in Sept when summer ends and fall begins. If you mean when school starts in Aug, your goal is too ambitious and you're trying to lose too much weight in too short a time.
Avatar f tn Anyone else losing ketones and going into starvation mode? What did you do?
Avatar n tn If you've doing these things already for awhile, then no, it won't suddenly start making you lose weight. If you just started doing this, then it might. If you were completely sedentary your whole life and you're young, starting any exercise program and eating better should start showing some results quickly.
