I weight about 67 kilograms (147 lbs.) which is a bit low for a guy who is 183cm (6'0) tall. But this is the heaviest I've been since I was like 15. When I was 15 I weighted about 68 kilos (149 lbs.) and was only about 175cm (5'9) at the time. The lowest I've weighted was 58 kilos (127 lbs.) at the age of 16-17 when I had a growth spurt that got me to 182cm(5'11). Since then I've mostly been stuck in the 60-63kgs (132-138 lbs.) area.

I can't help but notice that almost everyone I talk to seems to be trying to lose weight but me :lol:. The thing is, gaining weight is actually harder than you think. And while it's not socially acceptable to mock overweight people, reminding skinny people constantly that they're skinny seems to be more socially acceptable... if I had a euro for every time someone told me I'm thin and that I should eat more I'd be rich. And people don't seem to believe me when I tell them I'm not starving myself on purpose :roll:

How much heavier would I like to be? I dunno. But if I reached 75 kilos (165 lbs.) I'd be quite satisfied, I'd say.

What about you?

Apparently my BMI is 20.0, which is "normal weight." It's only overweight once you go past 25.0. And underweight if it's under 18.5 I think.

I'm guessing you're a bit short?

And it's funny how other people notice when you've gained or loss weight, even if it was only like 2 kilos. SO many times I've heard "you've gotten thinner" or "ah good to see you've gained a bit of weight lately" and I'm like "I am/did"?!

Yeah, a little shorter than I'd like to be. :lol:

I get the comments too. People seem to know when you've lost weight.

BMI is a FAKE STATISTIC! An expensive HOAX!

For real though, it was created by some mathematician in the army like a million years ago. Even when I was boating every day and in the best shape of my life, it said I was over weight.

I'm 6'2" 235 lbs now, and it tells me I'm obese lol.

Unless they're just jealous if you have a lean body.

Ha I always had a feeling it was a bit bogus, yeah. I mean even though it says my BMI is 20.0 and normal it's obvious I'm quite thin.

I doubt. I was never told this by fat people. In fact the few fat people around my age I've talked to about weight before told me "tbh I wish I was as light as you are".

But goddamn old people think you're always too thin.

Yeah, it tells tall people they're fatter than they really are and short people they're skinnier than they really are.

169 lbs, 5'11". I lost 20 lbs a few months ago by eating more vegetables, less sugar and less red meat, and exercising. Sounds cliche, but it works.

I never assumed it to be a hoax, but rather that it is a far better estimate of those who are more typical, aka less active. It doesn't seem to be able to factor in heavier muscle weight.

It places me just fine, on the expected light end of normal for my height and weight. (Which I've always been fine with; never had any weight issues. I've got other issues to worry about instead.)

Almost 6 feet tall and about 145 to 150 pounds. Not bad.

I'm not satisfied though because my diet is rather poor and it seems to be fat primarily. I plan on training to get into shape, either losing weight or putting on muscle in the process.

I'm 6'4" at 105kg or about 230 pounds I guess. Not ideal but I was lifting weights up until relatively recently, so not all fat

95 kg at 6'3. Reasonably happy with it.

5' even and weigh 97 lbs soaking wet. Usually anyway. Yeah I know, I'm tiny as f**k. Lately though my pants have been a bit loose and I think I may have lost a pound or two while I was sick with bronchitis and not eating as much. I am thin as a rail except I still have a little "jiggle" in the middle that has crept in over the years. Wasn't there in high school due to so much gym exercise every day, but now..... I blame pregnancy and age.

5' 9 seems quite tall for 15. I was around 5' 5 at that age.

I'm 5'8" and currently about 190 I think. Yes, people in Europe can does pounds for the Americans ;)

Am I happy? Reasonably. I can probably afford to drop 20 if I really worked at it, but I've got wide shoulders and hips, so I'm never going to be naturally stick thin heh.

Kid in my year at school was 5'10" when we started (at age 11), and was 6'5" when we graduated. He basically had his huge growth spurt very early and gained about an inch every year after that.

Did he look a lot older than he was, or just tall for his age? Someone I used to talk to had problems with that. He'd get into arguments with bus drivers, when trying to claim child fare at 14/15.

I'm just a hair over six feet tall and last I checked was about 290 lbs. Sadly most of the extra weight is due to my medical issue but I've been trying to do more now that its warming up. Lack of energy is also an issue with the tumor so its difficult to find the last push to stay moving to lose the weight... I hate being overweight.

In the UK, if kids are deemed to be overweight by schools, they send letters to the parents telling them their kids need to lose weight.

I'm 5'11, 155lbs. Not in the greatest shape I've ever been in, but I can still fit comfortably in all my clothes so I ain't worried yet :D

Actually, last week I started a 4x a week exercise regiment to get me back in shape for summer, so I'll see how that goes.

I went on a diet once and lost 10 lbs, so I could weigh less, but I stopped caring.

Are you overweight or is it mostly muscle?

I'm pretty happy with my weight and don't really pay attention to it. Most people have said I should probably gain weight seeing as I am kind of thin and am short, but I'm honestly not worried about it.

I'm not really overweight, just have a bit of a belly.
Most of my weight is annoyingly around my hips and thigh regions, making it hard to lose much weight. :ohwell:

I get that a little bit. Fortunately not really that noticeable unless shirtless.

My weight fluctuates over the years depending on how active I am and how well I'm eating. Anywhere between 240 at my top end and around 188 at a really lean side. I'm currently at 212.
I am somewhat lucky that I can lose weight easy. But it's a double edge sword because I can also gain very easy. I'm watching what I eat right now because 195 is when I can answer "yes" to the 'are you happy with your weight' question. I think October I should be at my goal, just in time for Halloween candy. :lol:

I'm happy with it, I feel pretty damn fit. BMI says I'm overweight though, but I'm kinda muscular so it's whatever.

BMI is bull get a skin fold test and get your level of lean body muscle measured. Weight is so subjective and you can fluctuate so much just between waking up in the morning and going to bed at night.

That said, I don't actually know my current weight. Though I'm also in the best shape of my life right now so I don't worry about it too much.
