Thread: Over/under weight?
12/28/2004 6:32pm, #1
There have been several threads/polls in the past about how tall and how heavy people were, but they never actually addressed if they were at a good weight for their hight.
So, are you over or under weight? A lot or a little/ Or are you one of those lucky bastards with a body like Adonis*.

I'm 5'6" and 195 I put very overweight. My goal for the year was 180, but my ultimate goal is 165ish, +/-, give or take.

Way overweight. I'm 6'2" and very large-framed . . . I know every fat guy says that, but people consistently guess my weight 100 pounds low.
Just before my hernia surgery last June, I weighed 396 on the hospital scale. I was officially a big fat sack of crap. I don't know what my weight did over the next few months, but I'm pretty sure it had to have increased--I was bedridden for ten days after the surgery, and then didn't do much physically for the next few months. In late August, when I thought I was ready to start training again and had actually done a couple of days of weight lifting and bleacher runs, I developed a wicked infection around the incision and was hospitalized for a week of bed rest (but no loss of appetite, of course) followed by a few weeks of IV's and low activity at home.
So, essentially, I worked very hard at becoming, not only a fat tub of goo, but an ever-expanding tub of goo growing faster than Wal-Mart (and containing more candy bars than Wally World, as well.) I am proud to say that I proved to be exceptionally good at this.
Since the middle of November, I've been on a low-carb diet plus walking and calisthenics. One month into the diet, I had lost 31 pounds from my pre-surgery weight (I don't know what I weighed when the diet began, so that's how I'm reckoning.) For those of you who went to public school, that means I still weigh 365 lbs. My goal at the moment is to hit 357 and stay there awhile so I can start calling myself "Magnum."
I don't really notice the weight lost (though my pants and watch are looser) but my family has noticed.

I didn't notice the weight loss until I dropped 50 or 60lbs. I am also doing the low carb diet, just be careful with high cholesterol foods. I've always tried to stay on the healthier side of the low carb diet. I drink nothing but water (150oz a day), maybe a no sodium seltzer and I keep the butter, mayo, and red meat to a once a month maximum. I know you didn't ask for or need my advice but I don't like that low carb diets have a bad wrap for being unhealthy.

While I would like to put on a little bit of weight, I'm at pretty much an ideal weight for my height and size. (6', 175, 6-7% BF).... and I've actually been called Adonis before, by an actual female! *gasp!!*Click To Get My Free Training Newsletter... Do It NOW!
