I am 42 and have for the longest time weighted 125 and just in the last couple of weeks now up to 152. Can anyone help with why this happened?

I have been eating the same amount of food but for some reason all the weight. Can any one help with why this happened? Thanks. Or just something that happens when you get older and all in the stomach area.

  • Sudden weight gain can be a sign of thyroid issues, edema (swelling), pregnancy/menopause, or other imbalances in your body. Please see a doctor to get evaulated.
