Skip to comments.Weights of our Freepers??
Posted on 01/01/2013 5:02:52 AM PST by Lazamataz
I have wondered how much all the various Freepers weigh. I know by reading stories on here that we have had people get diabetes type II from their weight, all the way to ectomorphs who work out 7 days a week. Obviously, don't post your weight if you do not want to, but I just thought it would be interesting to see our weight spans. I am 42.
190, 511, 59 YO, six-pack under certain bad lighting conditions.
My weight varies due to the fluctuating gravitational fields
which have surrounded me since my birth.
6’ 2”, 195 lbs, 27 y/o
My fist is very heavy; but it moves real fast.
But enough about your porn filming. :)
Laz, I’ve been thrown off this planet for causing it to lean with a tilt, but if I leave for too long this planet spins out of control. I know ... I know ... That doesn’t work here.
5’6”, 120. lbs. I weighed 115 in High school, but that’s a lot of beer ago.
Before or after two Big Macs, fries and a shake?
Is this weight with or without the spell-checker in my pocket?
let’s just say I’ve been banned from some south pacific islands...
You’re not going to send this info to Michelle O’s secret obesity database, are you?
"....I'm so thick light bends around me, and I have two shadows"
245, without my clothes on.
But I’m not sure how accurate that scale in front of the drugstore is.
5’4”, 125 lbs.
DON`T POST ! IT`S A TRAP gathering data for obamacare !
I have to buy the expensive ladders, or make separate trips for each nail...
Okay usually my weight is right around 200, right now it is at 220, because I have not been able to work out due to an injury. Type II diabetic, down from a high of 285.
So if you went to Guam it would tip over?
yep, those south pacific islands get a bit touchy when some of us threaten to do a cannon ball dive into the ocean out of a plane.
I’m the poster boy for what you describe, 5’11”, 309. My new year’s resolution is to go Atkins.
Hot for Zeppelin!
Cougar here. Early 50’s, 120 lbs. ;D!
I don’t quit puking until about noon. Then it’s time to start over.
I’m 6 feet 2 inches, 215 lbs...43 Years old on the 20th. I just had a physical at the Veteran’s Admin and my cholesterol levels are elevated. Probably from holiday eating. :D
Is that body weight, including/excluding, opinion, and thought process?
6’2”, 350 lb., 22.5 BMI
I was as low as 225 lb. (14 BMI) just 5 years ago, but then I met my now-wife. I let myself go, but I continue to lift.
Diet is the biggest component to weight loss. You can exercise all you want, but if you’re shoving garbage down your gullet, the scale will not be kind to you.
My long-term goal is to maintain between 200 lb. and 225 lb. for 5 years by the time I celebrate my 40th birthday.
When I last dropped a load of weight, I went from 390 lb. to 225 lb. in 18 months. No drastic diets, just ate when I was hungry, 90 minutes a day of cardio and weightlifting, very low carbohydrate intake (<10 mg/day), and most of that was from fruit.
What about the width, thickness, and cc (or cubic inch) volume of FReepers?
6’3”, 250 lbs., 59 years old. I want to get down to 230 or less by my 60th birthday (March 7). In the 220s is a good weight for me. Today I get back on the elliptical treadmill, start back up with the sit-ups and the free weights.
(Blood work #'s available upon request)
I tip my hat to you Laz, you have a sense of humor asking this on Jan. 1st, LOL!
5’2” and after this holiday 135#’s. I am in need of a 10# drop immediately! Feeling like the guts of a sausage in my jeans! Squeezed.
At the DMV I’ve had to weight up to five hours. But usually less than that.
53, 6’1” and my weight UNLOADED is 231 lbs 3.75 oz. My weight LOADED is 231 lbs 10.12 oz.
OK, Laz, but what is your WEIGHT? Weight and height, please.
That all? I've got a full keg.....
What do I win?
I am 43 years old, 5’8” and weight 182. Could lose a few pounds for sure.
6’0”.... 165 pounds. 53 years old and run a mile and a half 4 days a week :)
Was diagnosed type II diabetes 2 years ago, got off pills less than one year later.
Bloodwork last week has doctor amazed, is like that of a 20 year old.
To lose the weight, stopped eating my favorite Humpty Dumpty's potato chips and other misc. junkfood and switched to barbecued or jappaleno sunflower seeds.
Moderate exercise, pitting the body against itself, and walking to and from targets at the range.
I am actually doing more exercise since detaching a MCL, injuring ACL and breaking landing of left tibia in November, just do all exercising laying down or sitting.
I now have more time to exercise as I can't do anything else, very maddening.
6’4”,235,I do a lot of hard physical work around the farm so I’m in pretty good shape.
5’5” and 115 pounds. I struggle to maintain it..which always annoys people. If I get sick, I will easily drop five pounds and it takes me months to gain it back. The maternal side of the family tends towards the opposite; I inherited the skinny gene from Dad’s side.
I’m always getting “Have you lost MORE weight”..or “Good grief girl, eat some desserts!” No one would ever think of making disparaging comments like that to a larger person. It’s rather embarrassing.
5’9 170 55 YO I am one of those that works out five or six days a week.
All depends on download time. Some days can get pretty rough.
I’m 70 and weighed in an hour ago at 192.4. (Yes, we’ve got a digital scale)
and I am a towering 5’8” (questionable). Thirty years ago I tipped the scales at 250. I underwent my first triple bypass 5/25/83, and shortly thereafter began a serious running program. Shortly after returning to duty, my leaders decided to put me back on the horse that threw me, so they sent me TDY to Baghdad. I ran just about every day through those horribly polluted streets. In Baghdad, I first learned about “The Hash House Harriers” and ran with them often. I ran four miles a day in Mexico City at 7,500 feet, in Havana at sea level and in Jo’burg at 4K, and a lot of other locations in Africa and Latin America. Now, I’m disabled and get around on a cane on a good day, and am holding my walker in reserve. I can’t even walk outside now. Aren’t you glad you asked? Ask me what time it is, and I’ll tell you how to make a clock.
Never purposely exercise, but walk between 10-15 miles per 12-hour shift, 4 days a week.
Eating whatever I like.
Mainly things that used to be alive -and had blood flowing in ‘em.
