Common Questions and Answers about Weight chart overweight obese


358026 tn?1197496896 I don't have a chart handy, but I would say that you are overweight, and it would be a good idea to lose 40 lbs. The best way is to eat in a heallthy way, primarily eating to satisfy your physical hunger, not your emotional hunger. You have to stop eating too much when stressed or upset, and the best way to do that is follow a program. You can learn all about emotional eating on the web, and you can start on my website www.shrinkyourself.com.
6935419 tn?1392156640 I am also considered obese on the bmi chart and I could stand to lose some weight yes but I wouldn't look at someone my size and say they were obese.
Avatar f tn I am not obese but barely overweight and I can't afford to go to the gym. My paycheck doesn't even cover all the bills I have let alone a gym membership. Not everyone is using money as an excuse. Times are hard right now for many. Wish I could be as lucky as you. By the way I excerse on my own without a gym. Not always do you need a gym to lose weight.
Avatar n tn Hello, I read/heard that for women that are obese with a large BMI, the birth control pill is ineffective. If this is true, should we talk to our doctor about having a lrger dose of birth control as the regular.low dose ones may not be good enough?
Avatar m tn This is one of the reasons that overweight people with diabetes are recommended to lose weight. For obese people, who are diabetic, and lose weight, their diabetes may be apparently reversed (though the tendency for diabetes is still there and it may return if they gained weight again)..
140437 tn?1215113342 The charts indicating weight to height ratio totally contradict the BMI ranges for normal, overweight and obese.
10389360 tn?1410827568 Clearly the weight gain is getting to my head and I'm very down and upset about it. Ugh. But obese?!?!
476246 tn?1418874514 Meaning that I am normal weight. On the tracker chart, it puts me at 2977. This would put me on the border of obese. BMI Categories: Underweight = <18.5 Normal weight = 18.5-24.9 Overweight = 25-29.
1626068 tn?1303760162 5 * 2.7889 Weight (minimum) = 51.6 kg 24.9 = weight / (1.67)^2 weight = 24.9 * 2.7889 Weight (maximum) = 69.44 kg So the healthy weight range for someone with 1.67 m is between 51.6 to 69.44 kg. I hope this helps.
311053 tn?1203459505 I have had 2 pregnancies being overweight...one I started out barely being considered overweight...the other I was closer to "obese" on the chart...both were uneventful full term healthy pregnancies..With ALL my full term pregnancies (4) my 1 hr glucose came back high but all of my 3 hr ones came back normal. I am now pregnant again (14 wks) and considered overweight again so we'll see how this goes.
Avatar f tn I am not wild about stigmatizing people, though, and often discussions about weight become accusatory or insulting. Smokers and the obese are the last acceptable folks to bash on. As a smoker, I get lots of unsolicited comments and advice. My overweight friends and relatives get dirty looks, especially if they eat anything. Apparently, they are never allowed to eat in public. What has happened to me before is gaining maybe 3 pounds a year. It's so slow you hardly notice.
Avatar n tn Good evening everyone. I just started this medication yesterday. The doctor I saw prescribed it to me along with 7 days worth of medroxprogesterone (which is supposed to induce my period). My husband and I are trying to have a baby but I haven't had a regular period since I was about 18 (so 4 years). We've only been trying to get pregnant for 5 months but the concern laid in the fact that I don't get periods normally unless I'm on birth control.
Avatar n tn I have digenerative disc disease and my neirologist just prescribed topamax, he said it would help with the pain and tingling but could result in weight loss. I am wondering if prescribing topamax for ddd is common among neurologists? I can't seem to find any other information related to topamax as a pain med, only information I have is that it's a powerful drug with lots of side effects, most not so good. The weight loss aspect is the only plus...
119874 tn?1189759429 Medical Recommendation: male 6' 185bs. This recommendation is based on a Body Mass Index (BMI) range of 19-25. I typed in your stats and they come up with 185 at 6 foot at your BMI. So this calculation says you are 15lbs overweight. I was suprised when I did mine, I wasnt aware I was overweight before! Not saying you are overweight but the "ideal medical weight" I guess is a bit different, according to that you are a bit over.
579258 tn?1250652943 In entering your current data, it provides you with a chart to monitor your progress, allows you to establish weight loss goals, tracks your measurements and clothing size, and records your exercise and daily activities.

Take a look at it – I guarantee you, you will start using it!
Avatar n tn I was going to boot camp several times a week, even though I am obese and way overweight and stuck to eating plan as well as exercising. I am 47 years old and am peri-menopausal. I admit to being really concerned that this is something more than hypothyroid related. I can't exercise now, I have thee pants that fit, I look like hell and feel worse. I can't stand anything binding my abdomen at all. I am sorry other people have this happening but also am finding some relief that I am not alone.
Avatar n tn I was looking back on my weight loss chart and saw that within 3 weeks of starting lexapro each time, I had a significant weight gain. I went from 175 to 185 the first time and then continued to gain despite following the program and exercising. When I went off the med, the weight began to drop and I made it down below 200. I started it again in February this year and within 3 weeks, here came another 10 pounds and it's been steadilly going up ever since.
284738 tn?1283110419 Um NO! I can't believe a doctor would tell you this. Even obese women are given the green light to gain 11 to 20 lbs during pregnancy. Infact, if you look over on the Maternal & Child Forum, peekawho just posted the most recent pregnancy weight gain stats/chart. And it says the thing I just wrote about the obese thing. You might want to think about getting another doctor.
Avatar n tn I feel like all the ideal measure on weight and height out there are scewed for people that lift and have large muscle mass. Im concerned Im overweight but not sure if its healthy weight or not? I made an appt for this week to get blood work done to figure out if it is a thyroid or some type of hormonal problem. It was commforting to hear Im not the only one with this type of problem! Thanks for all the info!
Avatar n tn Since then I have been biking off 500+ calories a DAY - per the digital readout on my bike. My problem - I'm not losing ANY weight...I've gained 2 pounds!!! I did notice that my pants fit better and that I'm looking leaner but I still want to get back to 145 not bulk up with muscle! How do I get back to losing weight WHILE getting in more exercise?
4261944 tn?1530523938 9th August 2013 Previous BMI: 33.4 obese Current BMI: 30 overweight Target BMI: 24.5 healthy weight Will be: healthy weight at 10 stone 10lb! That'll be celebration day!
98010 tn?1305903335 In one day in can go up 2-3 kilos. then it can go down a few kilos. My weight will not go under 70 kilos. I am overweight by 10 kilos. My BMI was overweight. I am exercising to lose the weight more so than loving it. Even though I must admit, I am starting to have fun with exercise. I does frustrate me at times to the point where I say to myself, "Why?" and I feel like giving up. It is not fair now.
Avatar n tn I'm not one that likes to take medicine, but I now a few people that have said that the B12 shots have done wonders for their weight loss and they have all kept their weight off. I've been overweight my whole life and I just need to do something about my weight now. My mother had a mild heart attack at 34 and I'm 26 and just don't want to go down the same road. Wish me luck. Hopefully I'll have a success story like many of you. Best of luck to you all.
Avatar f tn Your pediatrician can look at a chart and determine if you child is overweight or obese. Both sleep apnea and pseudotumor are more common in overweight and obese people. Go to www.emedicine.com and read the section on pseudotumor cerebri. Fat is not the only cause can be due to some medications, some vitamins excesses and some without a cause. If all of them are talking about weight its likely your daughter is overweight and needs to lose some pounds. Diamox often causes weight reduction.
579258 tn?1250652943 INFORMATION A good way to assess your weight is to calculate your body mass index (BMI). Your BMI estimates whether you are at a healthy weight. Being overweight puts strain on your heart and can lead to serious health problems. These problems include type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, varicose veins, and other chronic conditions. More than 300,000 lives could be saved in the United States each year if everyone maintained a healthy weight!
Avatar n tn Hello, This year my company offered a 'free health screening' to employees, of which I took part. Tests included some basic blood work, blood pressure checks, height/weight measurement, and body composition testing. None of this was particularly new to me, other than the body fat test, which I never had analyzed before. To give just a summary of the relevant results I received (in compressed form): Subject Age: 52 Height: 5'10" Weight: 218 lbs Body Fat Percentage: 36.
Avatar m tn that depends on how much your start weight is. if you are obese, you can shed 50 pounds in 3 month, with a healthy diet and lots of exercise. However, if you are only overweight, it will be very difficult to lose this amount i such a short time and still be healthy. If you don't have the money to go to the gym I advise you to get at least a fitness assessment. these cost around Euro 20. a professional can draw up a fitness regime for you to take home.
7159675 tn?1397445807 It doesn't matter if you were in shape it goes by BMI, so if you were considered healthy weight before you should only gain 15-25lbs your entire pregnancy, 23lbs at 7 months doesn't sound like your too far off but keep in mine the last 2 months is when you gain the most weight. Women who are considered underweight can gain 25-35, overweight 10-20, and obese women should only gain between 8-15.
Avatar m tn For instance, I tend to retain a lot of fluid, so if my weight jumps up to 153, I'm obese, going by BMI, but the extra weight isn't fat, it's fluid. According to the height/weight chart, normal weight for a 6'1" man could be anywhere between 152 and 192, depending on frame size.
