Iâ€™m a 14 year old girl and I want to start exercising and eating well so I can gain weight. Iâ€™m 5â€™2 pushing 5â€™3 at 100 pounds. My main focus is gaining around my thighs and butt because I want to look more feminine. As long as my arms donâ€™t get scary big, I donâ€™t mind gaining there too. It doesnâ€™t matter if I have abs or not as long as my stomach is flattish like how it is now.
I just have a few problems. First of all, I donâ€™t know where I should start regarding exercise.
At 100 pounds, I have pretty much actually no muscle. Iâ€™m extremely weak. Running a whole half mile in PE is extremely difficult in my current state. Pretty much the only exercise I get is walking .4 miles to school and back every weekday.
Also, I donâ€™t know where to start with protein. Most protein powders I see are made to lose weight, not gain it, and theyâ€™re crazy expensive. I just need recommendations for a protein powder I can make into a shake after I work out. Iâ€™m not picky, I donâ€™t really mind the taste. I just want a high calorie protein powder thatâ€™s not too pricey.
I also donâ€™t know how much I should eat, and what I should eat. I barely eat right now because I have no appetite.
A gym membership is accessible if necessary. I have acid reflux. I did leg exercises every other day during the summer for about a week and I was extremely sore up to three days afterward. Iâ€™m honestly really worried for my health and everyone I know is too.
