Good decision!: I'm glad you have made a decision to be healthier. You've probably heard the answer tons of times: "diet and exercise"! It's still true. But don't go for quick solutions. A pediatric GI specialist (gastroenterologist) and I agree and we recommend to use the advice in www.choosemyplate.gov for your diet, and start exercise by walking regularly then advance to more exercise. Good luck! ...Read more

Eat fewer calories: Our bodies are in a simple state of balance. If we eat more calories than we use, we gain weight. If we eat fewer calories than we use, we lose weight. So, people who want to lose weight must eat less than they use on most days, but occasionally may eat more than they use on other days . . . But it averages out over time, so that they are eating fewer calories overall, than they use each day. ...Read more

Be happy with gain of 1-2 lbs/week. See a Psychiatrist for Therapy for stress, Relaxation , ...Read more

Could i be retaining water ? I gained weight on a healthy low cal diet + weight baring exercises. Why am i not loosing? So upset!

Could i be retaining water ? I gained weight on a healthy low cal diet + weight baring exercises. Why am i not loosing? So upset!

Retaining water?: If you are retaining water, you will have rapid weight gain. People that retain water get up at night to urinate. Are you doing that? You should weigh yourself after you get up in the morning, after you urinate. If you gain weight daily, it is due to fluid accumulation, not due to increased muscle mass. Muscle mass takes longer to increase your weight than does fluid accumulation. Good luck. ...Read more

First- breakfast every day, no excuses. Next, a bit of walking every day, even if it's just 5-10 mins. Increase every week or two by 5-10 mins. Then, cut down on the bedtime goodies, especially sweets and carbs. On your way! ...Read more
