Trying to gain weight

I was going to donate blood, but it turns out that I don't weigh enough. I'm 115 pounds, and the requirement is 124 pounds. I hate being skinny. I would like to gain the nine pounds I need before the next blood drive, which is in less than two months. I wish all the girls who hate their extra weight could give it all to me! I  really wouldn't mind weighing up  to 130 pounds.

if you find yourself with some free time during the week, go to the nearest gym to you. work out for at least an hour and a half, and load up on carbs. muscle weighs more than fat, and you will gain it in no time :D good luck

don't hate being skinny. loads of girls would probably love to weigh the same as you do. I agree with Run2Liv3, though. start working out and gain muscle. first you will start losing weight because you're burning the fat, but then, as you gain muscle, you will gain weight. good luck :)
