|Weight Gain||am I eating too much?||Jul 10 2011
How long are you eating that many calories? I'd say keep eating and in a week or 2 weigh again.. Weight can flucuate upto 5lbs in a single day so i wouldnt worry. Dont weight for a week but still keep up eating the same amount. I'd say you will need to increase more to gain!
Let us no how it goes :)
|Health & Support||tired of hearing the bad..||Jul 10 2011
Another positive is being able to spend time with my niece and nephew. Being able to bring them places. Having the energy to do it. Also getting to wear a SKIRT still not there yet tho. Getting my boobs back :P.. And having a glow in my skin, not a pasty white dry complection!
|Young Calorie Counters||weight gain support buddy||Jul 10 2011
auto- a fear of mine is keep gaining gaining gaining.. is it possible? is it hard to maintain your weight??
ttluvj- i eat four meals a day and then 2snacks. I'd eat cereal or toast for breakfast, soup and a sandwich for lunch, stirfry with noodles for dinner and i have two slices of toast at night! i also have 2 snacks a day and they are my fear foods i.e a bar of chocolate and then a bag of crisps or ice cream or something in them lines. its all within 2000 calories but i no i have to increase more now because im staying at this weight nearly 2 weeks now (also dropped 2lbs as i had the bug but increasing calories as from today)
what activity do you do? what is your meal plans daily like? what was your weight when you were healthy?
|Young Calorie Counters||weight gain support buddy||Jul 09 2011
