Ya think?

Some narcissist writes that she exercises a lot and doesn't eat and good golly Molly I don't gain weight!

Translation: Hey look at me! I need my 15 minutes!

Then you neurons go and give her advice. Real smart.

Learn to recognize "Gosh it's such a burden being this thin" threads. She's not complaining she's bragging. You dolts.

Dear Credulous Fools,

I exercise a lot and don't eat enough. Do I look fat?

Signed, Narcissus

Why jump right in with the hate? Or were you just having a bad day for a year or so.

Beverly Cleary gained weight when she started eating an avocado every day in addition to her normal diet!

I can empathize with what you are going through; until I reached my late 40's I weighed between 102 and 108 at 5' 5". Not nearly as small as you but still I got the comments about being too thin. Very rude nasty comments about looking disgusting, warnings about my death etc. So I can imagine how bad it must be for you.

I would suggest you CONSULT WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN FIRST, then perhaps, a dietician, and perhaps a personal trainer (available in most gyms/fitness centers). If your build is just natural for you, I see no reason you shouldn't exercise. But, you need the right kind if you want to build muscle bulk etc. I think your diet will be equally important to assure you stay healthy.

Weight lifting, resistance training and so forth can not only build muscle (and thus your over all weight) but it's good for your bones. Most small people have problems with low bone density (osteopenia and osteoporosis) which as you age, can become very debilitating. Weight bearing exercise of any kind then becomes doubly important for you.

While the majority of people have difficulty keeping weight off and we all accept that it's a problem, people who are too thin also have problems. People aren't sympathetic and there is little support for them. If they say anything about it they are accused of wanting attention. From personal experience I also know that many people have absolutely no problems saying the most horrendous things right to their face. I disagree with what you are saying in other words.

"If they say anything about it they are accused of wanting attention."

No kidding. It's happening right here and now.

There's an old saying that goes a little bit like this: if everyone around you says you're drunk, you should probably sit down.

Look fatso, it's great you got your appetite back, but don't be following me around the forums. I've already got a dog.

After reading your post here at the link below, where you state you feel like a "pile of flub" with jiggly legs and abdomen fat, you obviously have a huge problem. You stated your BMI is 14.6 - well, a BMI nearing 17 is usually used as an indicator for starvation, and the health risks involved, with a BMI of 15 being an informal criterion for the diagnosis of anorexia nervosa.

You need help.

Clever! Very clever.

He and his sock puppets ran out of people in Politics to insult, since he always uses the same ones.

Maybe some of that heavy-duty stuff could be replaced with isometrics...??

I don't need help, and I don't have a "huge problem" but thanks for the advice.

If you are 5'4" and 85 pounds, with a BMI of 14.6, and you think you are "a pile of flub" with jiggly thighs, *and* are exercise obsessed, YES, you have a problem. You may not realize it, but you do. I really hope you go to a Dr and get the help you need as opposed to coming to message boards.

In reply to an earlier post on May 30, 2012, 12:34:57 PM PDT
Thanks, but I've been to a number of Doctor's and none of them have said I have a problem.

I find that INCREDIBLY hard to believe that a real doctor would be ok with a 14.6 BMI. See the link below to a YouTube video of a woman who has a 15.3 BMI and is in a clinic because of it. Do you think she looks good? She is your height.

I have moved in the last 2 years and in those 2 years I have seen approximately 6 different doctors between gynocologists and gastroenterologists. NONE of them have told me I need to be hospitalized! You can be thin and healthy believe it or not.

That's not thin, that's emaciated. Good luck to you, and interesting that you changed your name here at Amazon from xleyxash to NNYgirlatheart.. I suppose because of your other posts all over the internet about your weight obsession as xleyxash. anyhow, good luck.

There's some good information in these posts!

In general, to increase muscle mass you need to accomplish 4 things: 1) reduce stress, 2) improve hormone balance, 3) increase your strength, and 4) improve your body's ability to assimilate nutrients (and provide it with a sufficient amount of nutrients).

Here's the short and sweet way to do this: 1) your only "aerobic" exercise should be walking uphill, this is low stress and will help you retain muscle. Don't run. 2) Do 4 weight workouts a week, focusing on around 2 muscle groups at a time. Focus more on weight than reps, e.g more weight, fewer reps...reps in the 5-8 range (to failure of course). More weight=bigger size. Compound movements are better in general than isolated movements, e.g. deadlifts, squats, pullups, etc. 3) Take a nap every day and get plenty of rest at night. 4) Focus your diet around milk, cheese, fruit, and coconut oil, aiming to get around 100-120g protein per day. 5) Eliminate bowel irritants (most vegetables) and unsaturated fats. 6) Take a pure supplement created to reduce stress and increase metabolism. The best I have found is: Ever Young w/ Pregnenolone - Youth-Extending Nutraceutical (60 Capsules)

There are lots of other details, but this should get you most of the way there. Please let me know if I can be of further help.
