    Same exact for me, 5'11" and went from 215 to 160. I figured I had the rest of my life to be fat, so I might as well be thin and healthy while I'm still young. At 215 my health was crap.

    that is awesome. not only health was crap , i had a better time socially when i was thinner and now , compared to when i was heavy.
    also, sleeping at night. what a chore. i had to sleep on my side always because i would drown in my snores and wake up not breathing and i think i had heart palpitations and had to wake up and go outside to breath fresh air in the middle of the night sometimes.

    I'm not sure why the OP thinks that weighing over a certain amount might diminish one's sense of masculinity.

    I'm 6'1", 220lbs. I've been slacking all summer but I'm hitting the gym starting next week (same time as class) and hope to lower that by a good 10-15lbs.

    This would make a lot more sense if people added BF%.

    6'/193lbs/12%.

    6' 217 6.2% 32" waist. Measured, weighed, and had my bf tested yesterday by my nutrionist. Was in the upper 220's but have gotten much leaner since getting my nutrition in check.

    I think he meant the other way round, weighing under 200 makes you a lil girl.

    This would make a lot more sense if people added BF%.

    6'/193lbs/12%.

    lefty


    But so many people have this weird understanding of bf%. Like a bodybuilder at my gym who thinks he's at 8% when I would guess him to be at 13-15%. And that NBC kept saying Phelps was at 4%...

    Ahh fuck it, lets here some BF%

    i think Lawman's intent in this thread was just to see who is over 200lbs. for style and clothing purposes perhaps that is all.
    i dont think he is interested in body composition and health on this thread mind you

    Yeah; I didn't think this thread was about who was jacked. Just about whether there were as many little latent elfs dancing around SF as it sometimes appears.

    I don't miss the heartburn, back pain, stretch marks, or any of that other stuff either.

    Did your shoe size change when you lost weight? I went from a 9.5 - 10 to about a 9 or slightly smaller. Also had to resize my watch band and wedding ring.
