Eat healty & learn to like who you are. If you make too much effort just to put on weight with foods that are not good for your heart, etc. you may pay a higher price later in life. Especially habits you may form in order to gain weight will be very hard to reverse when you are ready to stop gaining. I'm no expert, but I have thought about this while raising my ds. I am plump, but dh was tall & thin growing up. When preparing food for my son when he was little I would think, he is/will be thin so it is ok to put plenty of yummy butter or sugar on his foods, etc. But so much information is now out about the habits you set growing up & how they effect long term health, I have really tried to shift my thinking for him as well as the whole family.
