ive always been really small and never really cared about my weight, but recently ive been outgrowing all my clothes. my jeans and shirts are getting too tight, but as far as the scale tells im not gaining weight but my tummy is getting more noticible. (at least to me) is this a normal thing to be worried about/to be happening?

As we grow through our teen years and our early 20s, many of us will find that the shape of our bodies change. It's not abnormal at all! [Smile]

i only weigh between 89 to 95 lbs. and everyone medical professional tells me to gain weight, which i would gladly do if it means ill be healthier. however these same ppl do nothing but give me instructions on how to lose weight.

its very confusing. and i would like to know if there is a healthy way to gain weight, like in muscle not fat

Is it possible for you to talk to someone like a nutritionist or dietician? They're often the best resources when it comes to eating well and either gaining or losing weight in a healthy way.
