Don't feel obliged to tell me how much you weigh. I know you're all a bunch of fatties.
Now the rest of you, particularly the fatties, should feel obliged to say how much you weigh.
You must have mucho muscles because 12st 6lb seems pretty heavy to me.
and i'm 6"3. I'm a lanky bastard though and my results should be discounted
i did lose 6 1/2 stone a few years ago
then put a stone on. but still 6 1/2 stone!
id like to lose another but tbh im happy the way i am. I used to be heafer for a 5ft nothing female. A ball with legs.
I'm doing regular exercise now to be a bit less fat, but I'm not bothered about how much I actually weigh. It's a bit irrelevant really, isn't it?
and it occured to me that I had literally no idea how much I weighed and no real conception of how much a stone was.
I decided to stop weighing myself when I was recovering form anorexia, so I haven't known my weight for a good 5 years now. I do however know a) it's a fairly healthy weight but b) since I can still cram into my teenytiny wardrobe on a good day, I'm not fat yet.
If I had to guess, I'd say around 8 stone.
less than bamos. Sorry, can't be any more accurate than that.
But about two stone less than I did
I can't get below 9st 2, ever, no matter what I do! I'm probably about 10 at the moment and have been around that mark for a year or so. The difference in that one stone to my body shape is quite a lot though so I desperately want to get at least half way back to 9 again.
I went on my bro's Wii fit the other day on a visit home having not been on it for a year and i'd lost over a stone in that time without knowing. That was a nice surprise.
That makes me sound hidouesly skinny, but I'm just built slight. I have a unruly gut and everything but my ankles and wrists are like a woman's.
I'd never be as presumptious and rude as Lucien.
i went to the doctors a few times recently and they were astonished to know that i didn't know. i then gave a guess at 13 stone, and they had no idea what i was talking about.
My weight doesn't fluctuate that much, so I could hazard a guess and be reasonably confident that it would be accurate to +/-2kg.
It's light enough to know that I don't need to lose any without people asking if I'm alright.
that's 1 1/2 stone lighter than at Christmas.
...stone that is. I look a lot fatter than 12 stone. For a short lad I'm a right porker.
I just got back from holiday and so felt the need to discover the damage. Heartbreaking.
I haven't weighed myself for about six months, but I don't imagine it's changed that much. I'm about 6ft 2in, and was pushing 14.5/15st. I'd obviously like to lose at least a stone, but I haven't really made much effort to *looks guilty at 4-pack of Rolo doughnuts on my desk*.
Do I look that fat? Dunno. You tell me.
They're normal ring doughnuts, with chocolate on top, and toffee sauce running through the middle. I've had one so far. I am tempted to have a second.
but NOBODY, not even somebody training for a marathon, should be eating 4 rolo doughnuts.
(PS come to bikram with us! lots of guys go. OK, they're mostly gay, but still- GUYS!)
My problem is I love junk food. I crave it. Crisps, chocolate, everything that's bad. And booze to wash it down. I know it's bad for me, but I can't outweigh the lovely eating by thinking of the eventual benefit of not eating it. My only salvation at the moment is that I do a lot of walking. I got an exersise bike recently which I need to start using again. I should probably run but I find it embarrassing.
Gastric band pls.
It's tricky. You need to find a balance. E.g. I pretty much eat 'junk' food every night, but I try to make the best choices i can within that genre (e.g. if I'm having a curry, have boiled rice and only a little nan, have chicken or veg instead of always having lamb, avoid the creamy or buttery dishes.) The only place I am completely unrestrained is bodeans. (You've yet to see me attack the meat platter and cover my entire face in hot sauce). You need to let yourself have a little of what you fancy, but try to make good choices on the whole. I always try to eat healthily at work, so that I can afford to eat less well at home if I want to. And whilst walking is brilliant, you should be biking and running and getting your heart rate up/sweating a bit for at least 20 mins 3 times a week for the sake of your heart, apart from anything else.
I have good phases where I eat sesnibly for a week, but I'm terrible at just thinking "Oh go on then", or giving myself any excuse to have something bad (like tonight I'm doing a job after work, so I'll have a car to get home, so I'm already thinking I'll stop and get a McDonald's rather than get back late and cook). I need like a near death experience to jolt me into a healthy way of life. Although knowing me, I'd just used that as an excuse to think I might as well enjoy the Big Macs while I can...
So full of salt and nto much in the wasy of nutrition. You'd be better makign your own burgers- over time your palate will get used to and like the taste of less hearty food.
I think so long as you try to be good about half the time, then you're doing just fine.
we were only in southend for a split second and he was already seeking out crunchie imitation snacks.
i think we need an intervention.
I am no guru, really. (although I do have the 'so hungover I might die' excuse.)
I went for two weeks recently where I had absolutely no junk food, no snacking, no booze, cereal bar in the morning (I normally skip breakfast, even though I know that's a big no-no), cup of black coffee at 10, baked potato for lunch, cup of black coffee at 3, dinner of baked beans or fishcakes or vegetable thing or protein-containing salad or (for a treat!) some sort of 400 calorie Weight Watchers ready meal. Didn't fall off the wagon once.
And it made fuck all difference.
That's really demotivated me from sorting it out. I know the correct solution is to do more exercise while sticking to that sort of eating plan, but since I moved flat the gym is in such a logistically awkward place that I never, ever go any more. I'm short on time as is and it's a complete ball-ache to get to.
On the plus side: I walked into McDonalds (round the corner from my flat; dangerous) last night, looked at the menu, thought "You don't actually want any of this food. It's too expensive, it's bad for you, and you'll get just as full from eating what you've got at home" and turned around and walked out. Had a dinner comprising mostly chick peas, spinach and lentils instead.
(the discontinuation of Creme Egg McFlurrys *may* have been a contributing factor)
I can't concieve of the weeks and months of self-restraint and effort it would take before I start to look passable. I would love a McDonald's revelation. I had a Krispey Kreme revelation, which is a start. You know how if your dad catches you smoking he makes you smoke the whole pack to show you how bad it is? Imagine that, but a selection box of Krispy Kremes. And I was eating them of my own volition. My dad was not present. But still, I haven't eaten one since.
then either you have a health issue which you should get checked out, or you need to crank the exercise up at the same time. Also, cereal bars can be absolutely full of sugar and fats (as are 'healthy' choices like nuts and seeds) and so whilst you think you're eating rabbit food, it's the kind of food that makes rabbits chubby.
I totally agree with your point though- if you don't see a difference after a few weeks of effort, then you can't be blamed for thinking FUCK THIS.
And yeah, I appreciate that cereal bar for breakfast and baked potato for lunch are hardly the world's healthiest options, but it was compared to nothing for breakfast and something approaching a proper meal at lunchtime.
I don't mind exercise but I hate running, so gyms work much better for me. The gym, the lab and my flat are basically three points of a triangle right now, except with no transport link between the flat and the gym. If I cared enough I'd overcome the logistical hassle and go anyway, but finishing PhD > overcoming lard and motivation is a bit low. And the gym here is pretty shite (they've probably been saying "We'll tart it up soon!" incessantly since you were here)
Going to lay off the Haribo either way.
Even if I had to only eat like a really calorie controlled diet or something, I'd almost definitely make sure it consisted only of mars bars or something. AND I WOULDN'T GIVE A FUCK.
A female uni mate once asked me how much I thought I weighed. I said I had no idea. She asked me to guess how much she weighed. I said '14 stone'. She was pretty thin too and not best pleased with me.
i wouldn't mind getting down to 12. nice even number, like.
but a stone less than last month.
Or massive shit.
last time I checked I was about 9 stone but that was about a year ago
Appendicitis has given me a massive kickstart in my bid to be 16st by the end of the year
but built like a brick and as long as my chest is bigger than by stomach its okay
muscle weighs more than fat blah blah blah
which I'm happy with.
Up until I went on Olanzapine I weighed 9 stone! Which for a 6ft 3in male is pretty scary. I look back at old photos and videos and can't believe how ill I looked. Definitely glad I filled out a bit.
(I know somebody on this- it's actually life-changing).
Life changing stuff indeed. But I can see why people don't get on with Olanzapine and other similar antipsychotic medications. What with the weight gain, insomnia and seizures!
Not checked in a while but I imagine it's around the 85kg mark.
probably weight myself once a year or so but I can never remember what it was the last time i did. always annoying if i'm filling in some kind of health questionnaire or something
Have lost a stone since Lucien crowned me saddlebags king in the last thread on this and as I said in that thread, I'm 6ft 7 SO IT'S COS I'M TALL NOT COS I'M FAT MAYBE BIT COS I'M FAT.
too obsessive with it really.
of pure muscle
BMI of 22.
The (Andrew) Adonis of DiS.
Pretty much bang on middleweight status.
Im gonna pig out soon though so I can move up to cruiserweight or something
6 ft 2 ish.
Its all the skag.
Purposely, I might add - been hitting the gym hard and consuming my own body weight in whey protein every week. I think I look a lot healthier - it's a good weight for me. I pretty much had Skeletor's face without that extra stone.
i haven't weighed myself in a while but it'll be between 14 and 15 that was my standard weight.
At one point three years ago i weighed 11st 8lb and looked like a ghost according to my family.
I thought of using an online stone conver calc but then couldn't figure the point of it.
Also: I came to let you young and oh-so! skinny kids know...you'll be as fat and outta shape as your parents in no time. Ha!
lost three stone last year
I think of it like checking my bank balance regularly, if I've been out and overdone it I'd rather know about it straight away, so I know I have to be good for a while.
haven't weighed myself since i last went to give blood which was about a year ago, i think i was like 8 stone something then.
whatever that is
