! I'm new to the forums and hope to get some insight on people who might have the same issues as me.
I'm 22yrs old, about 5'6"-5'7", and weigh anywhere between 94-100lbs (for the past year, it's been SO hard to even hit 100lbs
I've always been relatively skinny. Both my parents are very thin as well, so it sort of runs in the family. However, I've never truly been happy with my weight. When I was 18yrs old, I suddenly jumped to an impressive 110-115lbs! I LOVED my body for the first time in years! I'm really not too sure what exactly put on the weight. At the time, I had moved to the city, did not have a car so I had to walk (well, more like power walking in heals!), and was probably eating out a bit more than usual (Subway sandwiches, burgers from diners, etc.) but not by too much.
My problem for the past year or so is that I moved back to my hometown, and lost the weight dramatically. I really want to gain weight and be at least 110, but 115 would be my ultimate goal! I no longer can "walk" to places, as my home is in the middle of no-where-farm-lands. I don't eat out as much, and I'm not a cook by ANY means, so I'm picky when it comes to foods that have to be made from home.
I've gone to doctors, and it's not a medical issue. They've told me to try protein drinks and I have but they do nothing, or, I can't seem to finish them. I also haven't worked out or exercised a day in my life (well, besides whimpy grade school gym class), but I'm looking to start if it's something that would help me out dramatically. I've just always been so worried about doing exercises or taking supplements that would make me look bulky and "body-builder-esque" which is what I definitely do NOT want to look like
