Weight – Accuracy

While I was at the doctors on Monday, I opted for killing multiple birds with one stone, and also got an accurate weight measurement as well as starting off a request for a referral to a nutritionist so I can get some proper advice.

Weight-wise, I was actually quite surprised – I currently tip the scales at 140Kg. (22 stone, or just over 300 pounds) I’m not happy about it, obviously – there’s some way to go on the weightloss front for sure – but it means I was just about spot-on back in September when I estimated my own weight. Admittedly I felt like I’d put more on since then, but still, that’s what I am at the moment.

It also means that I’m one stone above where I was back at the start of 2005, which is a bit depressing. Then again, it also shows that if I do sod-all, my weight remains remarkably stable. Yes, stable at “fat bastard” level, but it’s not really going up and dwon from that point.

Still, I’m going to be working on losing some of it again – particularly now that I finally seem to be starting to be able to breathe OK again without coughing my chest up – throughout this year, and we’ll just have to see how it goes.

    What height are you?

  2. Lyle says:

    6’3, 6’4 (190cm – 193cm) depending on who you believe…

    So you’re not MORBIDLY obese then. I know if I was 22 stone I’d have to go around in a wheelchair, being as I am 5’10”-ish. A=I know people who are 6’3″ or 6″4″ and who are 17 or 18 stone, and they don’t look fat at all.

    Lord no, nowhere even close to Morbidly Obese – from my rough calculations I’d need to add another two stone to my weight to get to that level. (not that I plan to do so)

    Most of the weight is on the belly, to be honest – the rest is carried pretty well by my build. I want to get rid of some of that (OK, a fair bit of that) and I will do once this fucking cough/cold is sorted.
