Gaining Weight

I was 5'2" and 92 pounds at 24 years old, and while I was thin, I didn't realize until just recently (looking at some of my old clothing that I hadn't gotten rid of until now) how thin I really was. However, I did not feel unhealthy or too thin. Yes, people made comments about my size but I would just blow it off.

It all changed once I hit about 25 (seriously!) My energy level decreased some, and that meant my metabolism decreased as well. Currently (at 35) I'm considered obese, though I don't look it, but my BMI is right on the cusp. Having children and two csections really helped with some weight gain as well.

If you are feeling too thin, then do something about it, otherwise just enjoy it!!
