In brief: Complicated

Everyone is different; you are not your mother. Even identical twins are different.
They develop different diseases, and die at different times from different lifestyles. Weight is a function of food, daily physical activity, stress, and sleep patterns. You must rule out a medical reason for weight gain such as thyroid disease and nutritional deficiencies. Discuss your concerns with your physician.
