I have never had a weight problem before. I was always thin and short 5'1'. Then I gained 40 lbs when my doctors changed my birth control. I topped off at 144. A bit chunkier than I expected. When my daughter got married I wanted to get rid of 20 lbs in 6 months. I lost 3 lbs. Then I had cancer and lost 8 lbs. Didn't stay gone for long. Last year I had a stroke and went off the birth control. I have been losing weight all year. First I talked to my doctor who was concerned for other health reasons. Now it's become alarming. I am trying to eat but it's been difficult. It's hard to find people with this problem when so much focus is on Americans being obese.

Girl Scout Cookies
I remember those, I used to like the thin mint cookies they sold. I was a girl scout! Just moderation.

I need to gain weight
Yes I do think of eating as my job and I hate my job...I get all my HIV stuff done at the Hershey Med. Center and there are some different programs. Years ago we had a great support group for HIV/AIDS but the new support group meets to far away for me to drive. I'm pretty much in this on my own. Just know?

I need to gain weight
I live in PA and yes we have tried to get food stamps. This month they gave us $15.00. There are 3 of us here and only one of us works part time. I'm on disability. I have asked for oil assistance too. I don't know how we are supposed to live. I'm so burned out.

I need to gain weight
I have talked to a nutritionist and she has suggested eating 6 times a day. They have recommended lots more protein. My Dr. has given me a pot pill that is supposed to give me the munchies. Doesn't really...I didn't like the protein taste of Boost. I started drinking Carnations Breakfast and those are really good! I really don't do much pasta, potatoes, or bread. If you guys could see my fridge. There are 3 eggs and some margarine. Just can't always afford food.

I need to gain weight
I have AIDS, had cancer, and a stroke a year ago. I have lost 50 lbs and now I weigh less than 100 lbs. My appetite is gone completely. Every bite is like force feeding myself. I need to gain at least 15/20 lbs. If I don't start eating more I will die. I need help please.
