RD--how quickly did you gain this weight? 6 inches on your belt is quite a bit, especially if it was over a short amount of time. Has your activity level and/or your diet changed significantly in recent months?
I ask because the natural slow-down in metabolism usually results in a very gradual weight gain. From what I've read, and this applies to women, but I imagine it would be slightly similar for men, changing hormones and a slower metabolism should only result in an approximate weight gain of 25# over a DECADE.
I'm thinking you gained way too much weight, way too fast, and I think you should go see a doctor.
On November I went overseas with my daughter and ate ate ate, belt jumped 2 inches, after my bday, I dunno what happened, cause in 1 month, jumped 4 more inches. I was determined to put on weight, but it's normally a struggle to gain and maintain, now it's so easy, and I'm even sexier!
Normally I get flirty or second looks from 25% of women walking past, now it's 75%
As long as I don't gain anymore in my belly
If I start getting too fat, will see doctor, but I hope my metabolism is just "balancing" out, used to be so hypo!
