Almost 18, overweight 240, tried losing weight in grade 9 lost 10 lbs in a month but exams came & gained 7 lbs in a week. Why?

Almost 18, overweight 240, tried losing weight in grade 9 lost 10 lbs in a month but exams came & gained 7 lbs in a week. Why?

Probably because...: One ate more food or drinks, meaning calories, than one used up during that week. Some women also hold onto water-weight and/or poop-weight during certain days of their menstrual cycle. If those days happen to be at the same time as when she eats too many calories, then the sudden weight gain will even be more striking.

Im 17 weeks pregnant and 104 pounds I've only gained 2 pounds is this normal?

Yes: Weight gain early in pregnancy is not and should not be the issue so many people want to make it into. As long as you are eating regularly, taking in good quality food in reasonable quantities and taking a multivitamin (prenatal), i would not worry about weight gain. On the other hand, if you are not eating for whatever reason, that needs to change. If it's nausea, seek your obgyn's help. ...Read more
