I'm 6/1 and 255. I'd be happy as hell to see 215 again. 160 is so far beyond healthy that I'd be looking for a new Dr.

I’m 6’ 250... yes I know I definitely fall in the I need to lose some weight category, but I was 6’ 165 in high school and a scrawny ass twig so I don’t think 165 is a reasonable weight for a 6’ person... somewhere in the 190-200 would make me happy

Well, I was until my wife announced our divorce. Now she tells me I need to eat more. I lost 40 pounds.

I'm obese. BMI is 30.

I'm just under 5'7" and 188. I should be 158! If I get down to 170 I feel great. At 165, I look ill.

I've got 25 marathons, 10 Ironman triathlons in the past 20 years and am approaching 25,000 miles running. I'm never going to be skinny.

I ran 9 miles this morning. The first four miles were at 7:30 pace. Then I ran into my slower buddies and did a few slower miles with them. Finished at 8:01 average.

I did a quick 20-miler on the bike yesterday at 20.2 mph average.

I'm a bit chunky for a guy who exercises so much, but I like holiday treats.

If I get down to 170 again, I'll scrounge up the $$$ for another triathlon.

Yup, BMI and weight on their own are terrible indicators of health.

I have a doctor who always fusses at me to gain weight. Why would I purposely do that? I never go hungry, I eat mostly clean, I work out every day, and I feel good, so why does weight even matter?

I will admit I'm a bit over the top. It looks more doable spread out over many years!

The BMI calculator puts you at “overweight“(barely). You’d have to hit 192 to be considered obese.

Last month I went to Knoxville TN for a two day physical for a government agency.

I was told I was overweight.

I knew I had a tape test coming up for the Army, so for the last two months I dieted, and changed up my workout routines and hit the gym religiously with lots of cardio. (I go five days a week anyways so I threw in a second trip three days aw week)

The Army scale lists my max weight at 193lbs at 5'10.
So, I am still overweight.

I think the whole BMI is baloney anyways.

I started worrying about weight too late,

When they hang your scale from the forks of a fork lift to weigh you , you were officially remiss
