Default Weight Gain?

Nutmeg has usually a close steady weight, but in the last while her weight is changing she's getting heavier. I'm wondering if I should cut back on her food a bit. She doesn't have any worms or parasites she was at the vet week and half a ago she acts perfectly normal she is just gaining and becoming bigger. Her age is unknown, I was told she was a year old when I got her but have no birth date. I'm not sure why she is having the sudden weight gain, she's been checked and she came out clean. Any Idea's?

This is part of her weighing chart from March to today

3/23/13 - 370 Grams
3/31/13- 366 Grams
4/4/13- 376 Grams
4/6/13- 396 Grams

This is a picture of her I just took.

I am not sure what to tell you. she is weighs 100 grams less then Sonic. He is a big boy. His age is a guesstimate based off of what I was told by the girl I him from.

Age has nothing to do with weight, some hedgies are just bigger and some are smaller. Its not recommended that you limit your hediges food, but you can add some lower fat food to her mix and see if that helps. Another thing you can do is try adding more veggies as treats to help fill her up.
