What do you guys weigh?

Recommended Posts

I was at my girlfriends parents house today for some swimmin' n grillin'. While in the bathroom, I saw their new digital scale and thought, why not?

 

237lbs!!!! :eh

 

The friggin thing MUST be wrong. I've been weight lifting like crazy this past year, and I know I'm not that damn fat!

 

I'm 6ft, wear between a size 34 and 36 pants...and the 36's are starting to get pretty damn loose.

 

237lbs, and 6ft tall is either pretty chunky or pretty muscular, and I don't feel as though I look like either.

 

Must be the rocks in my head. :P

5'11" and 145lbs.

 

Yup I'm built like a damn marathon runner. :) Cannot gain weight if I try. I would like to gain about 20lb's of muscle if I were to choose an "ideal weight/look" for myself. Maybe one of these days I'll stop being a lazy ass and start doing some regular lifting and put some meat on these bones.

Muscle weighs more than fat. You must have plenty of muscle. Mike Alstott on the Tampa Bay Bucs weighs 240, and he's got a 32 inch waist.

 

I've been overweight most of my adult life, after being a very skinny kid.

I'm 6'2' and I weigh in at the big 2-5-0. I wear a size 42 pants. In college, I wore a 36 and weighed between 205 and 215.

 

Maybe we should organize an LCVG "Get off our collective fat asses" weight-loss a-thon, complete with pics and stuff.

237lbs seems like alot of weight for a 6' frame Derrik. Depending on your body type you want to be in the 175-200 range (ie: low fat/a good solid muscular build) unless you are trying out for Mr. Olympia or something. :) However if you have reasonably good cardio (are able to be active and enjoy things like sports, etc without getting too winded) I'd be less concerned about your overall weight and more concerned with your general health (ie: collesterol, etc). Schedule yourself for a doctors apointment and have them check under the hood. I'm turning 30yrs old next month so I've been thinking about schedule a major physical just to make sure everything is cool. I know I am out of shape and really need to develop a habit of working out everyday for about an hour. I ride a bike or walk when I take my dog for walks once (sometimes twice) a day but nothing that routinely gets my heart pumpin.

I'm in. I'm in for 20 lbs by, say, December 31. Everyone who is in, let's total up all the fat we intend to lose. Then it could be the "Lose 8 Tons" or whatever contest.

5'6" -- 182 pounds.

 

I've replaced a lot of fat with muscle, mostly in my pecs and arms, so I'm not real worried about the weight coming off slow. I'd rather focus on how my waist is doing. My waist is down to a comfortable 36" (down from barely fitting a 38") and I can now squeeze into 34" pants, but I wouldn't want to wear them all day.

 

My wife's sister is starting a business as a personal trainer, so she is training my wife for free to build up good word of mouth and have some success testimonial ready. My wife (who was never what I'd call overweight) has lost weight and added a lot of tone, which is awesome. We are both benefitting greatly from a change in eating style, opting for a far healthier menu than we have in the past. I'm currently eating about 1500 calories per day, plus either weight training or cardio on alternate days.

 

Switching to Coke Zero from regular Coke is a big plus for me too, because I used to get about 1000 calories just from Coke per day.

 

My arthritis is in check, as I've mentioned before, thanks to Enbrel, but I've had to lay off tennis for more than a month now due to a High ankle Sprain I got from sliding down the slide in my backyard. Doc says that high ankle sprains are the worst, and it could be much longer before I feel like playing again. In the last few days, it has healed sufficiently for me to walk without a limp, and I'm starting on the exercise bike again.

 

Oh, and Bobbio, when I got married at 21, I weight a 120, with a 28" waist. Be careful and don't take it for granted!

 

Carlos.

That's not unusual on the surface, but the key is body composition - you should get your body fat % checked. A healthy male should be anywhere from 9% (pretty lean) to 15%. I tend to hover around 11%.

6' - 145 lbs.

 

Do you have to wear ankle weights when you go out on windy days? ;)

 

I'm 6'1" and weigh in at a staggering 250. When I was ill last year, I was actually down to 220, but I've gained it all back. I'll join the lose-a-thon... I'll probably lose. :tu

5' 9" 135

 

Dude, you're as tall as I am, and I know for a fact that I'm not 5'9". Try 5'7" at the most, maybe even 5'6".

 

Christ, Bobbio, eat a Double fucking cheeseburger.

 

The funny thing is that a while ago, he was complaining about how he was getting fat at his new job. I suppose he could say that if he was working with Lindsay Lohan's trainer, but compared to most normal, healthy human beings, I think he's okay.

 

As for me, I come in at said height and weight around 145 lbs. Not much bigger than my companion, but I at least I know I have nothing to complain about in this department either. ;)

Good point - "all the fat we intend to lose".

 

I really need to get to a doctor or a health club and get my body fat checked with calipers. It's been a long time - in fact, the last time I did it, I weighed in at 220. I can't remember the percentage exactly, but 27% comes to mind. It may have been 24%. Definitely more than it should be.

 

Please God, don't let it be a hot female doctor doing the measurements. Somehow, that will magically add 3-5% to the measurement.

 

It's funny, ever since moving to Colorado, I've excercised at least 3 times per week for at least 30 minutes, whether it's weight lifting, hiking, walking, or cardio at the gym (although admittedly, I've done less cardio than I need to do). Problem is, my weight hasn't changed. I attribute it to 2 things: Increased muscle mass from lifting weights, and eating more calories to compensate for the expended energy.

 

The good thing is, it's no mystery to me how to change my body composition. Some folks feel their eating right, but can't seem to take off the weight. Not me. I eat too much, too often - and I know it. I've maintained this weight for 3 years now, so there's no reason why I can't just get rid of it and maintain a lower weight.

 

About the "lose 8 tons contest" - I'm in, too. By rough estimates, I could probably commit to losing 20-25 pounds of fat (~1 lb per week, 22 weeks between 7/15 and 12/15). I'd still have more fat to lose after that, but it will be nice to take a Holiday break.

I'm a little shorter and a little heavier than Joel, so if his dimensions are "staggering" then I am whatever comes next on the scale. :o

 

Definitely down for the LCVG slim-down, with an EOY target of 25 pounds, which would be a less than half of what I need to lose but at least it would be a start.

I don't go outside. :)

 

I was really lanky in high school and college. I know there's that cliche about the "Freshman fifteen", but the dining halls at Clemson were so bad that I went several years eating virtually nothing but turkey sandwiches and Lucky Charms. I was rail thin, but when I moved into an apartment my junior year and especially once I graduated and had enough money to buy food/eat out a lot, my weight gradually became more normal. I bought an elliptical trainer a few months ago and started shedding weight like crazy. Even though I still eat incredibly unhealthy foods exclusively, the elliptical knocked off 20 lbs. in three months with very little effort.

LOL. My freshman year at college, that was my diet exactly, with an occaisonal bagel with peanut butter on it. My girlfriend (now my wife) had money and a car, so the next 3 years I was able to get out and eat some real food.
