I Cant Gain Weight

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 58 People

    I see myself as being fat,

    but I know I'm not. I do eat a lot, but I can't seem to gain weight. Maybe a pound, but then I lose it over night lol. It's starting to concern me a little. I'm not at a very good weight. I've been exercising too.

    It Makes Me Sick

    My whole life I was a little chunky. Then I got tall and now I'm thin. It makes me sick to be this thin. Everyone always asks why I don't eat. You have no idea. I eat at least 7 meals a day and cannot gain weight to save my life. I've never weighed more than 135 pounds in my life...

    "you're So Skinny!"

    My entire life, I've been really thin. I'm seventeen, 5 foot 7, and weight 110. I don't really know what it is. Last year I got up to 118, but something happened and I lost it all. My doctor basically told me that she thought I have an eating disorder. I eat more than most girls...

    Just A Little Guy I Guess

    I'm 5 foot 7.  I've always been slim and I have to work to keep weight.  Before I joined the Air Force I was 120-125 (you know how people like us bounce around in weight)  After basic training and technical training I was a solid 156!!!!  It was awesome! ...

    Always

    Ive always been like this. I guess I have a fast metabolism, because I dont gain weight. Not even around the holidays. I have done this before, Ive eaten a whole family-sized bucket of chicken from KFC, and an hour later, I could eat again. I could probably be in an eating...

    I'm Always Hungry But I Never Eat

    I know, it sounds ridiculous, but it's true. I am always so hungry. I eat a meal and then half an hour later I'm hungry again. This past Thanksgiving, I had two full (and by full, I mean overflowing) plates of food. I got home and had two bowls of ice cream. I don't think I...
