Why Am I Gaining Weight?

Patient

Q: Hi, I'm 14 and I've always been skinny. But, these past two years I've been gaining weight. I'm 130 pounds and about 5'2"-5'3". My height hasn't changed in three years. I have stretch marks on my inner thighs and can't find any clothes to fit me correctly. I have also been growing in my breasts quickly too. I went from A32 to a C34. I hit puberty when I was about 11. Why am I gaining all this weight? I've been trying to loose it but when I do I'm only skinny for about a day. Why? Also, my appetite has always been the same.

Symptoms:  Weight gaining, stretch marks
