Q: 

what is the average and below avg. weight for a 5

A: As you grow up it is natural for you to put on weight. Once you stop growing up you start growing OUT. I understand your situation, I used to be stick thin and now I have a bit of a stomach. According to the BMI (Body Mass Index) caculator you right right smack in the middle of a healthy weight for your height. You are definately NOT fat. I understand it is hard when you've always been tiny and now you are average. It takes a bit of getting used to but don't worry, everyone goes through it. Sometimes people put on weight and then take it off again. Yes, it is because of your hormones, in your teen years your body changes A LOT. Something I would suggest though is have small
Q: 

what is the average of those who gain weight back?

A: the figure that I have seen quoted in the various WLS books that I havebought is 10%. In other words, if you lose 150 pounds from the surgery,you can expect to put 15 back on. Of course, YMMV (your mileage mayvary).... I''m only about ten weeks post op... but I have to say this, people gainweight back, people keep it all off.. or gain it all back and everything inbetween. I''ve read all the things you''ve read. I spent two monthsresearching and another 2.5 months pouring over everything on this sitebefore I had my surgery. One thing I know for sure -- whatever happens,short of a medical complication -- is within your...

When does the body stop losing weight?

A: yes speak to a nutritionist... my last appt with mine said I am within 10lbs so I should start increasing my food intake and the weight loss willlevel off. then of course you have to make sure you don''t do into thegaining process. Good luck :) I go to my NUT all the time, and to be quite frank, I am underweight. Itis a problem keeping weight on for me. I have to eat 6 times a day so Ican get in all my protein.Never in my wildest dreams would I think I would have such a problem withlosing too much weight, but that too can be a problem. People are likely responding to the change. But check with your doctor asto what your target weight range is...

Q: 

I''ve always been an average eater/ slow loser. Will I still lose fairly quickly. .

A: Lora, I had the exact same concerns that you have. I never finished a bagof this or a box of that, I was always content with just a few, and I neverwould eat seconds, or finish a meal out at a resturant. My husband and Iwould often split a plate. Was not a snacker or grazer and not a sweetaddict. I think that I am plagued with a metablolism that doesn''t existand that is why I have always been heavy. I have been a slow loser, butstill not as slow as some that I have seen, but probably overall one of theslower ones. I lost 30 lbs. the first month, around 10 each monthfollowing until month 4, now around 6 lbs. a month at 5 1/2 months out. Ihave been very pleased with...


Q: 

what do I need to do to see fat loss?

A: First, you need to burn more calories than you consume. An active woman can consume roughly 2000 calories per day, but you need to assure that you are exercising enough to burn those calories. Exercising early in the day and before eating helps boost your metabolism and will facilitate burning fat and subsequent weight loss.. Also, do not rely on aerobic exercise alone. That will help your heart stay healthy, which is good, but if you want to burn fat, you must also engage in a healthy regimen of resistance training/ weight lifting. Cardio workouts alone won`t do it.. You must also be realistic about your weight loss. Losing 1-2 pounds per week can be healthy but losing 5+ pounds per week is not. It is also not sustainable. Weight loss occurs for a variety of...


Q: 

Feeling hesitant to take an over-the-counter drug because I know I will develop dependency...do you have any advice?

A: If you can donít take it, itís simple as that.. Perhaps avoid eating meat and/or greasy foods before you have to travel and will be unable to use the loo for prolonged periods.. Beyond that, you have to make a quality-of-life decision. Which is more important to youÖ being independent of meds, or being able to travel at will?. BTW, I usually pop an Imodium or two before a flight across the pond or long car trip, just for peace of mind. I see its availability as a modern convenience, not unlike mobile phones and iPods that make our lives more convenient and pleasurable.. I really hate the idea for myself of having to take any medication for the rest of my life, so I empathasize with your...


Q: 

Trying to find my ambition & the will power!

A: Here I am again, responding to another one of your posts. We must have things in common!! First can I say, I totally feel your pain. I have had ups and downs in my weight since high school. I finally got things under control and then I started dating the guy who is now my fiance. He is in very good shape because he is a cyclist and a snowboarder. He can eat whatever he wants and still look the same...but of course when we started going out I started eating more and without the benefit of the same excercise I started gaining weight again. It is so frustrating! My fiance says he doesn''t care,...
