Weight loss or?

My skin has become very loose and I don't feel as chunky as I used to be. I'm very small and petite. I'm 19year old female, I'm about 5ft1 and no bigger than a UK size 4/6. I weigh about 6 1/2 stone. Is that ok? Is there something wrong? My actual weight hasn't really decreased I just feel different and everything looks different. I'm worry sick about this now :(

You sound like you are petite which I wish I was :-D 

If you weight has not changed and you are eating and not loosing any I really would not worry , if you are not eating or loosing weight without trying then I would speak with my Doctor but does not sound like that is the case 

As you get older and at 19 you are still a teen even though you may not want to hear that but your body does changed shape , it will change again no doubt maybe in your 30's and so on , wait till you get in your 50's and above you will want that slender figure back and wonder where it went :-D 

Make sure you eat well and accept you are maturing and we don't stay the same :-)

Take Care x


Haha thank you, being small is awful I can never ever find clothes to fit :( I just sit waitin for the day I fill out!!!!! Being small is horrible. I often get people saying wish I was as small as you and I'm here like trust me you don't know the struggle haha.

I had a blood test about a year ago and it was just after that things started changing. I've also been through a lot of stress and anxiety maybe that has something to do with it. 

Thank you for your reply and take care too x

Hi.  I'm from the US.  I always find it funny when people say stone for weight.   Anyway, why are you worried?  You are saying your skin is not as toned?   Just trying to understand.


Hi there haha I usually go by stone what do you use in the US? Well in terms of numbers I haven't lost a tremendous amount of weight. I just don't feel as firm and bulky as I was a year ago. It all seems loose and squiggly if you get what I mean
