14 kgs of weight in last 20 months. How could I?
Your weigh is broken?
Or you're simply not doing enough to burn off those calories. We often think we're eating far less than we actually are.
I'm not entirely sure. My breasts are bigger than they used to be and my skin, instead of feeling dry, feels slicker and greasier. I can certainly feel the fat, just can't see it. It's still a surprise where did it come from though...
@The Stranger I definitely not stuff myself full, that's what I know for sure. I eat 600-1200g worth of food a day (sometimes I eat more, sometimes I eat less). The truth is though that it's a diet rich on saccharides as nowadays everything is sweetened beyond belief.
. . . . . . You're a woman?
No, I'm not?
Oh. When you mentioned the breast part, I thought you were lol.
... and I even have my gender stated in my profile.
It's internet. Even I can state my gender I want whenever I want.
Sorry. . No offence
I gained over 10kgs in one year, blame pasta and pizza, but I'm 6'2" and was clearly underweight before, so that's ok.
Lot of people gain weight as they age due to slowing down metabolism.
Well... If I'm to be fully honest, the last time I weighed myself was less than 52 kg. It was April 2018, so last year. When I weighed myself today, it was 70. In 2017 I briefly had 56 kgs while I was in the call-center and as I was jobless, I had little appetite, so my weight dropped.
So not only it's 14 kgs in 2 years... But 18 kgs in one year. If we also take the fact that I started working and thus eating in June, it's 10 months. Which, given the fact that I don't overstuff myself and that I walk 20000 steps per night shift... Really makes me wonder how did I gain so much weight.
It's not so much the quantity of food that matters but the number of calories it contains. Blaming inactivity isn't the right thing to do imo, since most of our energy burning goes to autonomous body functions and the brain.
probably not the case but have your doc check you for diabetes just in case. I gained 50kg in 8 months (went from 76kg to 125kg) and turned out to be diabetic...
@Finnuval Actually, I can't deny diabetes. My grandfather died of diabetes, one of his parents had diabetes and my uncle also has diabetes. I've suspected catching diabetes for a while, because my thirst has substantially increased compared to few weeks ago. So I guess there's only one way to find out...
Constant drinking, runs to the bathroom and weight gain are kinda give away... If they try to take your blood and they can't cause it behaves more like syrup then you won't have to wait for the results... Hope it's not but yeah, get yourself checked my friend
Well on the bright side if it's diabetes it's easily treatable (manageable, not curable) and fairly cheap. My mom has a pharmacy and I work there sometimes: a lot of people come for their diabetes pills (Metformin, Glicazide, etc.). Fortunately our health care covers those medications.
@MushroomCake28 true It's not that much of a thing (anymore) in most cases but also a bit dependent on where you live and what type you have but in general it's manageable and that's a good thing
@Finnuval I visit the toilet about 8 times a day, but that's because nobody bothers me there for a while. But the thirst has been insane. Even after drinking 3 liters of liquids I, and not infrequently, wake up, mouth as a cracker and that headache...!
Yeah... Cant Hurt to see a doctor
Also, consider maybe your not eating enough. I'm not a health professional by any means, but from studying up on it over the years I've learned that if your body isint getting enough calories it will hold on to weight. Or, maybe the weight gain could be fluid retention.
I was weight not quite a week ago, and prescribed water pills and to drink a gallon of water a day... it's not been quite a week yet and I've lost 3 pounds o.o . Hope you find what it it, good luck
