People kept telling me, your body will even out. You will gain a lot of weight, and then you'll lose some of it.
I have started eating much much healthier in the past six or so months. I eat very little meat, and a TON of fruits and veggies. I still snack on sweets here and there, but not much.
I have gained 30lbs over the past year. I have gone from a size 0 jeans to a size 5/6 jeans. At first, I was happy about the gain. But I am short (5'4"), and these pounds are really showing, especially the last ten or so. I am currently 127lbs as of my last doctor's appointment. I would be fine with that, if it was sitting right, but it's not at all. I have rolls. I have cellulite. My sides and front and even my back hang over many pairs of my pants. When I jump, I jiggle. Even when I stand, my stomach sticks out. It sticks out in a way that almost makes me appear like I am in the beginning stages of a pregnancy! Don't worry, I know I'm not. It's been an ongoing issue and I've gotten many periods... but it all makes me very self-conscious! :'( I feel like in another six months it'll start to hang over my pants, if I can't get this figured out.
I have told my doctor that I can't seem to stop gaining weight, even though I have been dieting, and she was apathetic. She said I'm an okay weight for my size, which I agreed (at least in terms of health), but as I told her, I definitely WON'T be an okay weight if my body keeps putting on pounds like this! I would really like to lose about ten pounds or so from my current weight, and maybe get back to fitting in a size 4 jeans? I'm not trying to be unrealistically thin here, I just want my body to look good in a bathingsuit. I just want whatever weight I have, to sit well. I'm just really concerned that no matter what I do, I gain and gain and gain. I tried exercising for awhile too, but it's been really hard because I've been having a lot of other health issues lately.
How much did you guys gain? Did you find that you lost it later? Was it impossible to stop gaining, even after a year? Should I be concerned?
