When we hear someone is facing weight issues, we usually imagine a person suffering from extra pounds. Few of us actually think much of slim girls. However, there are others who dream of gaining a bit more weight, and it’s an uphill task for them.

We at Bright Side want to share the achievements of girls who managed to gain the desired weight and became a bit happier as a result.

“Lifting heavy weights and gaining weight can be cool. The photo shows my progress for somewhere around 8-10 months: from 140 lb to 160 lb.”

“Officially hit the 8-year mark for recovery from anorexia today! I used to be 70 lb and became 143 lb.”

“Not sure if many people can see the difference, but I can feel it, and I feel so much more confident! Gained weight from 79 lb to 105 lb.”
