I am underweight

Posted by Alei at 8/27/2008

Slim and sexy, two adjectives they frequently use to describe my body built. Two words that confuse me if those were criticism or plain compliment. With a height of 5’3” and a weight of 99 lbs., I admit I am underweight. I never gained enough weight ideal for my age and height. Some says I’m sexy having no bulging stomach but some curves to flaunt. Some even says I’m skinny because of my slender arms and legs.

I love to eat. I make sure that I eat more than enough amount of food I usually consume everyday. I even tried to eat rice four times a day apart from heavy snacks. However, though these habits were considered adequate, I still had no chance to even hit a hundred pounds on the weighing scale. Was it my metabolism that I should point my finger at?

Recently, I came across a commercial ad, Appeton Weight Gain. It is a high protein milk product fortified with vitamins and minerals that helps in gaining the required weight. Albeit its price costs pretty much, I settled on to give it a try. I am required to drink it three times a day, an hour after every meal. Actually, today is my day three. =) I am pining for the next two months to come. Let’s see how it would work.

You might want to have your thyroid checked. Some people have a thyroid condition that doesn't let them gain weight....

I was the same way when I was in my early twenties. I had my hip bones sticking out and it certainly wasn't because I didn't eat enough. I started rounding up around 25 years of age, and now, by 32 I would say there's a tad too much, even though now I am at my "ideal weight" as in the "normal weight" for my height.

"Underweight" isn't really anything to worry about in itself. What it means that you are below average, and the average counts in the morbidly obese, which we all know, are numerous. So what might be a "normal weight" for the masses, might not be normal at all for you. Of your picture I wouldn't worry at all. Your arms show a healthy layer of fat and your curves are perfectly normal. The next time your nurse tells you are underweight, tell her to shove the charts where the sun don't shine and keep doing what you do. :) (Protein won't hurt though, combined with weight lifting you'll probably gain weight in muscle.)
