1 uneven weight gain? on Mon Nov 10, 2014 9:26 pm

Hey there Smile

in the evening my body looks so weird! like my legs, back etc everything fits together but then there's my belly.
when I wake up my tummy is pretty flat but in the evening it feels like it has doubled in size. I know that that is because of food in your stomach, maybe a bit bloated etc. but it still looks to big for the rest of my body. my hip bones still stick out and it hurts when i lay down you know...now I've been wondering if that is uneven weight gain? my recovery was pretty easy physical wise, I did not experience things like bad water retention or bad bloating so this seems a bit... strange to me idk Very Happy will that even out? and when? (idk if I have my set point yet, but I've been maintaining sinnce 2-3 weeks I think) I'm pretty confused atm...
stay strong xx

Hmm, I guess it may be that you're entering the final stage of recovery. Uneven weight gain may be possible throughout recovery, I think. Maybe your body will redistribute the weight in the time to come as now it's at the end of the recovery process. I'm noticing that I don't know that much about this. Does anyone else in this forum?

Your weight will probably not start to even out before you have been at your set point for a little while. The fact that you have been weight stable for some weeks suggest that you might be there by now - but do not panic if it changes, sometimes the weight gain curve is flat for a short period of time (one does not gain in a perfectly linear line).
Anyway, don't stress it. The weight WILL even out. It might take another two weeks before it starts happening, or it might take eight months. Only your body knows!
