    LOL, that's nothing!! I gained almost 6 times that amount in a year, while dieting and exercising. I can't imagine what it would have been had I been slack on eating and not working out.

    An extra 500 calories a day adds a pound a week to your weight.

    I wish 11lbs in 7 months was all I had gained. I lost 50lbs last year and do to extreme stress(not from overeating), I gained it all back in 4 months.

    Gaining Weight is actually very easy. If you're worried about it though, you should have complete bloodwork done. When I had mine done I learned several things. 1. I was NOT pre-diabetic(which was good) 2. I do have a slightly slow thyroid (which is bad, but not bad enough to go on thyroid meds for the rest of my life) and 3. I had really good cholesterol. All of this made me feel better about going on a low carb diet. And that there wasn't something totally out of wack with my ability to gain weight.
    41 down 36 to go!

    5/12/08 - 232.5 - Started Phen/lexapro combo
    5/29/08 - 218 -14.5 pounds in 2 weeks
    6/12/08 - 209.5 -8.5 for a total of 23 pounds in the first month!
    7/10/08 - 200 -9.5
    8/07/08 -192 -8
    9/18/08 - 185.5 -6.5
    12/8/08-191 +5.5

    Thumbs down pounds

    I second that. Effexor ought to be marketed as a weight gain medication. It did not matter what I did after getting on it. I put on 35 pounds and not from sitting down and eating 24/7.

    It so easy to gain weight, there are lots of factors.... eating, not exercising, not enough sleep, stress in and of itself will make you gain weight.

    Yeah, I definitely think it's "normal" in it's own right. I was averaging 210-215 for awhile. Life got really stressful and I put on 15 pounds in a couple of months.
    HW -- 229 11/28 (Weight Watchers)
    SW -- 209 04/28 (Phen)
    CW -- 205 05/05 (first goal of 10% achieved!)
    CW -- 194.5 06/04 (second goal of ONEDERLAND met!!)
    CW -- 189 06/29 -- stopped Phen
    CW -- 185 07/21 (third goal of second 10% met!!!)

    Next goal -- 178 (BMI under obesity!)

    Goodbye 200's!

    Seems pretty normal to me.

    - 5 pounds in 2 months, so that's about 2 and a half pounds each month

    - 6 pounds in 5 months, that's a little over 1 pound a month.

    Well, I gained 20 lbs in 9 months before I started Phen. I had an extremely stressful work situation, and I went to food for comfort. Now, I know what I did was wrong, and I'm not going to let others affect my health in that way again.
    Back on Phentermine after a slide and gain.

    Current weight: 239.6 (May 21, 2011)


    242.5 (May 2, 2011)
    247.4 (April 23, 2011)

    Goal: 180 lbs.

    Before i started Phen I could not figure out where all my weight came from, I worked and had a busy life and never even realized the amount of calories i put in my mouth. I gained 5 pounds in two months, then another 6 pounds in 5 months. With this rate i would have really had some health issues. Is this weight gain normal? Should it be gained so quickly? I have heard about people gaining over the years but this seems excessive!! What do you guys think what is standard or normal weight gain?
