Guess what you are lucky. I have had a weight problem since I got pregnant at the age of 18. I have lost 80lbs the old fashioned way by dieting. I still have 80 more to go. It is a struggle everyday as to what to and what not to put into my mouth. Good luck with your weight gain you can have some of mine.

ya, you are very lucky! many people are just trying to lose their weight! I am just one of them. when I was 15 years old. I was 170 cm and 60 Kg, but now I am 180 cm, 85 Kg! you know, my ideal weight should be 75 kg. I am trying to lose my weight. but it seems there is not an effective way. I am busy with my work for a long time, and have not too much time to do some exercise. Also I don't wanna to have a diet because I always can't reject the temptation of delicious food. really bothering. I think you are luck! but one thing should remember, you need keep your weight in the normal range. I don't know how tall you are. There is a way to check if your weight is normal. the normal weight is (your height)-(105). So you can have a check. if you are too thin, it's also not a good thing. you need to eat more!^_^ have a great day!!

If you are eating normal and not dieting a lot or overexercising then don't worry about it. You are just one of the lucky ones. If this really bothers you talk to your doctor. Aging does not necessarily mean gaining weight. Do your relatives look younger than most at their age? You could just have good genes and again I say you are a lucky one. I have always looked older. At 15 I could pass for 23.
