7774464 tn?1395277674 Before I fount I was pregnant I weighed 160 and when I went to the health department Feb. 17,2014 I weighed 174 and that's when I went to get my BC before my next period and I didn't get it so that's when I took the test and I came back positive so when I went to the woman's center March 4,2014 they weighed me again and I weighed 176 and my 13/14's aren't fitting. I don't know if I'm suppose to gain this much weight when I"m only 5 weeks and 5 days from what the Dr. says.
Avatar f tn I eat healthy igot to the gym 4days a week and im gaining weight not too much but im 5'2 and weighed 163 before iwas pregnant but my dr said my weight gain is fine.
541150 tn?1306037443 Are the delicious tootsies making me gain weight like this? What can I do (besides forgetting about the delicious tootsies) to NOT gain any weight this week, if that’s even possible? I just don’t want to have any complications that could affect my baby, like diabetes etc. And no I wasn’t underweight when I got pregnant. I was actually at a normal, healthy weight. Will working out help me NOT gain weight so rapidly?
361026 tn?1197563128 I am curious to find out if anyone else out there who has Hyperthyroidism if they have had any problems with weight gain instead of weightloss? For a solid year and a half before the doctors finally diagnosed me they couldn't figure out why I was gaining weight. It would be a couple pounds here and there but it has added up over time to almost a total of 100 pounds of weight gain.
228463 tn?1216765121 out and do the best I can, but I nominate SuperSally as backup. *Weigh-ins every Monday before we eat. (Don't weight yourselves throughout the week, because your weight will fluctuate & if you aren't seeing the results you want, you are likely to give up or give in to cheating). *Get a tape measure and measure your body. Chest, waist, hips, thigh, and upper arm. Write these measurements down. This is the best way to test if you are getting smaller.
867808 tn?1239485670 The last time I had sex was with my boyfriend during my last period, which was about a couple weeks ago (I will be getting my period again soon) I know that you can get really bloated and your breasts get swollen before your period, it has always happened to me before about a couple days before my period, but this has lasted for weeks and it has never been this extreme.
Avatar f tn If someone was unsure about pregnancy, and weight gain is a common sign for pregnant women, about how early does the weight gain start? Weight gain meaning some noticeable kinds..like pants not fitting, seeing it the mirror, etc...? Also, what happens if you take a pregnancy test but you get no result. Literally. Like nothing comes on the result screen even if you took one or two tests?
Avatar f tn Hormones can affect things like cravings and what we eat as well as water retention and bloating. So, weight going up and down right before, during and after your period is hormonally related. The joys of being a woman, right?
Avatar n tn If you are not receiving the proper nutrition, you will likely be fatigued, fall short of your workout goals and lose weight. learn the proper foods to eat to gain weight before training, so your body will have the available nutrients for a good training program. Consume more complex carbohydrates, such as brown rice, brown pasta and whole wheat bread, one to two weeks before you begin your training program.
Avatar n tn I have read many articles that say that Paxil may cause people to gain weight. I wonder if it messes up the thyroid and that is why there is a weight gain. You might want to check this out with your doctor. If anyone else out there has had a similar result, I would love to hear your story and how you are doing. P.S. The weight is not coming off as easily as it went on.
Avatar n tn B'se of hormonal change and irregular periods. If u have irregular period , u definitely gain weight. Tell ur family doctor. otherwise u gain weight, if u eat lot.
Avatar m tn It's been 15 months and I'm pretty close to where I was before this whole ordeal started. I'm not experiencing an unusual amount of weight gain. If you're experiencing hypo symptoms you may want to ask your Dr to do some testing sooner rather than later. Sometimes trends can be caught and meds adjusted. As far as "correct dosage" that could take a little bit of time. Pay attention to how you feel vs lab results and make sure you communicate with your doctor.
Avatar n tn if I can be switched to Wellbutrin, what do you all think about that change? I have no serious side effects other than the weight gain on Lexapro, however, the weight gain is making me feel worse than I did when I started the medication.
Avatar f tn My biggest issue is that I have gained over 30lbs during this period. Has anybody else been dealing with weight gain due to the medication and if so how do you deal with it? In the fear of sounding vain talking about weight when dealing with much more serious problems, I'd like to say that I've suffered with being overweight all my life and I had finally reached a comfortable weight when all this started happening. thank you for your help.
Avatar m tn Wondering if anyone else not only noticed post treatment weigh gain, but more difficulty losing the weight than before they treated. And if so, what worked for them if anything. My new plan is more of the above, but instead of 30-60minutes a day of interval aerobic work, I plan to do 60-120 minutes a day of aerobics with the majority of it in the lower heart rate fat burning zone. That and continue on with the weights and diet, but not cut calories so much as to start losing muscle mass.
Avatar n tn HI Everyone. Has anyone ever felt as if they gained weight on the HCG program during the first 2 days of it? I feel heavier and my scale showed I gained one pound.I am following the diet exactly, drinking plenty of water(3/4 of a gallon per day)I feel so distraught right now, I just want to cry. Can anyone give me words of advice and encouragement? Im at my wits end with my weight and I feel as if this is my last resort, I need it to work. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Weight gain is not inevitable, and probably occurs in less than 30% of cases. Its mostly from increased appetite, so if you exercise and use portion control, you should not have a problem.
Avatar f tn so a little bit of weight is alot on my small frame. I was hoping I wouldn't gain weight on Lithium, but within a week after taking the Lithium... my stomach is HUGE. It feels bloated (not gassy). I'm assuming it's water weight. But you have to drink alot of water on Lithium so it doesn't damage your kidneys. So what in the world do I do? I'm in a bad mood all the time because it's so uncomfortable.
1257808 tn?1322765815 Thyroid does have a huge affect on your metabolism rate and thus your weight. Too high and you can loose weight, too low and you'll gain weight. Thyroid is also associated with mood including depression and anxiety. Some people can get off of or have no need to take anti-depressants or anti anxiety medicine simply by getting their Thyroid levels balanced correctly. However there are other hormones in your body as well. They all have to be in proper balance and that can be tricky.
Avatar n tn I started to notice weight gain in my waistline so i joined weight watchers.I was a member of weight watchers before and was able to loose weight in the first weeks I would loose up to 10 pounds.This time I lost about 3 then the next week i would gain 5.I got frustrated and quit. Now I have gained 11 lbs. and i don't even have the energy to walk on my treadmill for 10 minutes and have no desire to do anything .Why is there no special diet to follow or help for women going through this?
Avatar n tn I had a hyster in 05. Same situation as all of you. I have gained 23lbs after working at Weight Watchers and losing 52lbs in 03. I have started researching weight gain and hysterectomies just yesterday. I am a Christian, believer in JC.
Avatar n tn However, the weight I gained didn't look like normal weight gain, it was puffy, swelling, fluid type of weight. I guess its somewhat of a subtle difference to anyone else but me, and every doc dismissed it as just girls whining about the "freshman 15" or whatever. It was very frustrating and upsetting as even my family made fun of my weight gain, which I knew was not just weight gain, but a symptom of a real problem that I couldn't get anyone to take seriously.
Avatar n tn I just read your comments about weight gain while taking Wellbutrin. I've been on it for a few years now for anxiety/panic problems. I take 200 mg once a day, which I'm told is a relatively low dose. My psych told me that people lose weight while on Wellbutrin. NOT ME! I've gained 50 pounds and I don't seem to be able to take it off even with diet and exercise. I started thinking it was just me. I'm sorry you've had the same experience but I'm glad to know I'm not alone.
215905 tn?1214505001 I just posted something so similar, I have the same problems just had a baby 4 months ago got blood work retest and TSH is still low. I am always tired, no sex drive, irritable and weight gain. No doctor has yet to tell me how to fix the thyroid problem or what to do. It figures I have a thyroid problem where I should be skinny and keep weight off of me but no I have to be one of the those people who gain not lose.
