This is an odd request, I’ll admit.
I need ideas/suggestions on how to gain weight, ASAP.
I’m a slim girl, always have been. I have a very fast metabolism (thanks, Mom!), so I burn calories QUICK and don’t really put on weight.
I’m 25 years old, 5’7″, and the most I’ve ever weighted is 130 lbs, and that was back in high school when I had a lot of muscle mass from playing sports.
I never gained the freshman 15 when I went to college, I lost weight. I also stopped playing sports at that time.
Now I work full time in a stressful environment (oncology nurse in a hospital), and I keep losing weight even though my diet hasn’t changed. I don’t exercise (I should, that would help me gain back the muscle that I’ve lost), I don’t count calories, I eat anything and everything I feel like… I just simply cannot keep the weight on.
I got weighed at my doctor’s office last week and I’m down to 103 lbs My Boyfriend or Best Friend likes that I’m slim (and so do I), but this is TOO thin for me. I feel like I’m looking at a skeleton when I look in the mirror. It’s scary and it worries me.
I take daily multivitamins, I’ve been trying to increase my calorie intake, but nothing seems to help, I keep losing weight!
So I’m open to ANY and ALL suggestions! If anyone has any idea on how I can safely put on a few pounds, I’m all ears!!
Help me, hive! Pretty pleaaaaaaaaaseeee!
