Hello. In college I was underweight 5'6" and 115. After I started birth control pills and then got married -I gained a few pounds. Then some more. Finally last year I was at 165 my largest. I started walking, running and tracking calories. I lost 15 and was down to 150 pounds. That is where I stopped. Then this winter I naturally started to gain a few back. But as soon as the weather got better-I got back on running, diet.
So for 8 weeks now, I am running/walking 12 miles a week, 1400-1800 calories a day. I have gained a pound every week the last 6 weeks. I also have a physically demanding job that I walk a lot at and on my feet that I don't count into the 12 miles but I wore a pedometer for a while and averaged 2-6 miles a day there. I am at a loss of to why I am gaining. I am also experiencing bloating and constipation so I am making a dr.s appt soon. I do have Ovarian cancer in my family so I am a little worried.
