4943237 tn?1428994695 Medications are known to effect weight so it is a potential idea, some medications can actually cause weight loss but weight gain is more widely known and talked about, it may not even be a recent med, as it can happen over time which isn't as noticeable, changing your diet could be different enough to make it stand out, maybe :D I actually became concerned with my youngest growth and weight, he was on the high 90's percentile range and then he just stopped growing but because I was small,

Avatar n tn IT isnt healthy for a person to drop that much weight in one week. normal weight loss for a person who is 20-90lbs overweight is about 2lbs a week, and for a 100lb overweight person is 5lbs for week. I know this because i was 270 and lost about 100lbs in like 4months, which was about 5lbs per week. Now im at 210 but because ive been lifting and going to be a body builder weee. BUT yea i mean take it easy on the diet.
152590 tn?1208149744 well it's only been two weeks since i had my c-section and I am already back down to 205 is that normal to loss all that weight that quick. Also I didn't retain much fluid the whole pregnancy and I am not breast-feeding.
Avatar n tn Hi, If you are due next month don't worry about losing weight now; just focus on not gaining any more weight. Once you have delivered your baby and recovered from the delivery then you can start exercising and getting yourself in shape. I wouldn't suggest dieting now either but eating healthy is a great way not to gain more weight. Enjoy this experience and don't worry about anything else. Your life will become even more wonderful in a few weeks and you have so much to look forward to.
Avatar f tn Could some of the loss you experienced be water? The doc I went to said that can happen. Good luck on your weight loss journey and I hope I can be as fortunate.
Avatar f tn The best way to achieve permanent weight loss is to lose the weight slowly about 2 lbs per week is normal. Your doctor can also advise you what kind of exercise would help you with your weight loss. You can't lose 60 ibs purely by trying to run if off. Not realistic. You also have to be careful because of your current weight. Too much running at your current weight would put a strain on your heart, your legs, your back.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am wondering what everyone's experience is with Cytomel in regards to weight loss and how long it took to have a measurable loss. Thank you!
504000 tn?1242504393 Pregnancy weight gain: 40Ibs "Immediate" weight loss: 20 Ibs in 2 weeks Weight loss 6 weeks postpartum: ~28 Ibs. Only now am I taking measures to actually aid weight loss though.
Avatar f tn Hi all! Sorry for the long post but I want to make sure you have background on my situation. I'm a 30 year old female, 5'4", and weigh 180 pounds. This is the most I've ever weighed in my life... for most of my adult years (18+) I hovered between 145 and 155 and was a small size 10. I realize according to BMI standards this is still high, but BMI standards can...

Avatar n tn I would say that it is a 50/50 chance whether you would lose weight in the long run as the product wasn't designed as a weight loss product. (but I'm not a doctor so your dr. might be able to tell you what to expect).
Avatar f tn People who are over weight pre pregnancy are supposed to gain 15-25 pounds, people at normal weight are supposed to gain 25-35 and under weight 28-40 pounds. Yes, in the first trimester it could be a little harder to gain some, because of morning sickness. But your not supposed to be losing weight purposly. Its not aboit your cute body anymore, its about the health of youre child.
Avatar n tn I take topamax to control seizures and I must say that I am surprised doctors prescribe it for weight loss alone, and that you are willing to put up with the side effects of it just for weight loss when there are other weight loss drugs out there. The "goofiness and loss of words" bothers me tremendously. I have been taking it since April and that hasn't abated any. Unfortunately I did not experience any weight loss or loss of appetite from it like everyone says. I take 200 mg a day.
Avatar n tn Are there any doctors who give these shots in Phila.for weightloss? Where can I get them on line?
Avatar n tn It should take about 2 months to get to that dosage but I'm getting kinda excited hearing about the benefit of weight loss especially since it was weight loss pills (metabolife and xenedrine) that caused me to find out that I was epileptic in the first place! The doctor told me that i might get tingling in my fingers and i might feel a little dopy but happy dopy he described it as, so I figure i can deal with that! If I start losing weight at a rapid pace i'll definitely post again!
Avatar f tn 99 at Ikea, good deal!) so I hopped on it and I have lost over 20lbs. I was never trying to lose weight and this loss has come upon in the last 6 months. I'm not excercising any more then before can the tramadol just do that? Is it from being up all night? Is this a really bad sign or normal?
Avatar n tn I've lost 25 pounds since my miscarriage. I am not starving myself in anyway shape or form. Could my weight loss and exercising routine have something to do with not having my period? Could I be pregnant? I don't feel pregnant-not like I did before the miscarriage. I had very sore boobs, sick to my stomach, etc with my pregnancy. Any ideas?
1560848 tn?1329491033 The average for women is about .5 pound per day. You lose more your first week then it drops off. 1 pound is normal, I always lose a few pounds on day 1, then it drops off. Also once you start getting closer to your goal weight your losses may also start to slow. I just started a new round, but on my last round I lost almost close to 10 pounds the first week!
284738 tn?1283110419 so for all of you experienced dieters/ healthy eaters i need some help..
5143317 tn?1383751420 I'm a little low in vitamin D, but that's it. The dr seems to think that the lack of weight loss, weight gain, and depression/mood swings/lack of emotional control I've been having is from a lack of sleep. Which is another symptom I've been having. I've not had a good nights sleep in I couldn't tell you when. So here's what I need to know. 1) has anyone experienced this, could lack of sleep be the cause of these symptoms. 2) what did you do?
Avatar n tn ) 2/week for the 1st month, then once/week the next month, then 1/biweekly, then once per month indefinitely. My B12 was very low, however, for my age so I think it will take some time to recover a normal level. The B12 dose the weight loss clinic offers is 500 (mg?) per injection, I was told. I do know that the appetite suppressants (phentermine is one) that they offer do work, as I took them after the Fen part of PhenFen went off the market. It does not work as well as the combo.
Avatar f tn I had a dermoid cyst removed (10x10 cm) and I lost weight, but I had already been losing weight. I was about 10-15 pounds into my weight loss when I had the cyst removed. I lost 20 pounds total, but that's including the weight loss prior to the surgery. Weight loss is a process. It doesn't happen quickly, so it's important to keep your eyes on that end goal. Best of luck in the weight loss goals and I hope the surgery goes well!
Avatar n tn So i was recently given propranolol 4x10mg daily for anxiety and was wondering if i would experience weight gain on such a low dose? I would also like to lose weight, but with me not being able to get my heart in target zone, im wondering will i find it hard to lose weight? Also how safe is exercising/weight lifting on this medication. Feels really weird that my heart does not pound when running!
921323 tn?1268679412 I’ve been getting a lot of posts recently about using Human Growth Hormone (HGH) for weight loss, and decided it was about time I explained my position. Basically, I don’t recommend it. Why not? For those of you less familiar, let’s break it down. 1) What is HGH? Human Growth Hormone is a hormone normally produced by the brain’s pituitary gland. Its purpose is to stimulate growth and cell reproduction. For this reason, levels are higher in adolescence, and peak during your twenties.
Avatar m tn So the rule of thumb is when treating candida to add a couple years before the onset of symptoms and then its treatment should be at least one month per year of candida, with a minimum of 6 full months of treatment. (diet and coconut oil*) You may do a simple and easy saliva test for candida. Just search on YouTube for details. If you want, I can send it to you. Again this is only indicative.
Avatar n tn Hi Harry, You describe yourself as "quite obese". That may not be true. Your BMI is 31.6, but BMI is a screening tool, not a diagnostic one, and it is greatly misused. In most people, BMI correlates well with body fat, but there are exceptions. You should ascertain your body fat percentage, because it is possible to have a BMI which is higher than "the ideal" yet have a "normal" body fat percentage.
Avatar n tn I did HCG. More than half of my weight loss was lean mass. That is bad weight loss, no different than starving yourself. Its a crock. I loose 1lb per day and don't sacrifice lean mas with simple fat-fasting. 1000 calories per day 90% coming from fat.
