Ht. 5'6", Start: 136 lb, Today: 200 lb (BMI %tile: 98) - I've always been an average sized child, and my weight's never really bothered me until recently. I had to go to the docters for a general check up every 6 months, where he measured my height and my weight. I've stayed the same 5'6" for six months but have shot from 136lbs to almost 198lbs. That was 2 weeks ago and since then, i've put on 2lbs making me 200bls and i've really started to noticed my stomach being bigger than it was before and last night my friend told me she thought i'd been putting on weight a lot recently. I find it difficult to fit into jeans and stuff now aswell so i've decided to do something about my weight problem but i don't know where to start.

If you havent changed your eating habits or any thing else since your last doctors visit i would be concerned and ask if you might have a disorder and your weight gain may not be your fault. If you have started eating alot and excersising less or been depressed latley then just try to eat what you used to and go back to the way you were.
