I weighed about 180 - 185, competed in the standard team sports till 11th grade when climbing began to take control of my life.

I weighed 183 this morning :-), 34 years later.

125 then,
125 right now.

I'm a week away from finishing the Insanity workout program. I'm probably in the best cardio shape of my life and have less fat and more muscle (although its weaker muscle) than back then.

Doing lots better than me, in 1972 I was a Derek Hersey/Ron Fawcett type at 138 (but ever climbing like those guys is way past any dream I've ever had). Now, apply the dyslexic factor and my 138 went to 183. If it was all muscle I'd probably be happy.....fat chance!

I haven't been doing near as much cycling this year as I had been doing for decades, so I'm losing my big leg and butt muscles. So I've actually lost weight by NOT riding the bike. Go figure.

I weighed myself Monday before I left on road trip - 130lbs - and I'll bet I'm below that now. My 32" Levis are like clown pants on me now.

I don't remember what I weighed the day I "finished" ( read: kicked out ) high school.

can't compete with the cragman...

I believe that I was 155-160lbs in high school, mostly from soccer but I also ran (for recreation) distance and rode a bicycle... and hiked a lot.

But since 1992 (and probably before) I have been 1825 lbs which is too much.

Recently at 59 I've hit 170lbs which is a great climbing weight for me

I think I'll have to retire to get it down to 165 which is a goal...

No pictures then so I'll post no pictures now...

For this crowd, I don't think there were a lot of body fat measurement tools lying around back in the day. Access to dunk tanks was probably limited too. Caliper tests remain inaccurate and variable to this day.

An easier way to perspective is to include your height. For those of us really old geezers, don't forget to note how much shorter you are now! :-)

In high school, I was a marathoner, 5' 11" and 145. I was basically a bean pole with Walter Payton thighs and calves. The upper body is more developed now, so now I'm around 179 on any given Sunday. I supposed a could take off another five lbs. if I wanted to work on a project, but I consider this my food reserve for long backcountry trips!

Here's the weird thing about me (one of many, collect them all!): I weigh myself before taking a shower and after. Almost invariably, I lose about a pound, sometimes more afterwards. Whatever is in our water, I think I should bottle and sell it!

Eric

Edit: Except for that 5 lb. backcountry emergency reserve, my 30 odd lb gain from high school is all muscle. Really... I mean it... no, no, I'm not joking... !!! :-)

I weighed in at 96lbs (5'8") when I graduated HS in '90.
I wanted to wrestle and play football my senior year (instead of cheerleading, I was OVER IT after 2 years). My father however REFUSED to allow me to wrestle or play football with the boys, even though I was GOOD at both. (I grew up a tomboy, damn it... I can still throw a football like a champ).

The compromise: I did track and field and played competitive badminton, which ended up being a BLAST.

Ok, speaking of being light, here's a quick side story.

I was maybe 23, around 140 pounds, working construction, and operating a skid steer every day. Well, the thing kept shutting off on me. So, we called in the Gehl mechanic and within five minutes he figured out the problem. The seat has a deadman trigger and every time I hit a bump, I'd bounce off the seat and trigger the kill switch. He turned to me and told me to go eat a cheeseburger. I still hear jokes about that.

Graduated high school weighing 170 in 2005.

Living back in the same town I went to high school in after an 8 year hiatus (can I go back to Reno yet?) and weighing 175.

Would love to drop back down to 165...I was more muscular coming out of high school (still lifting weights back then), gained beer weight in early undergrad (205 lbs and 5'7) and then leaned out racing triathlons at the end of undergrad (155 lbs - twiggy thin) and then bulked back up doing crossfit like a retard(185 lbs and stacked) early in grad school).

Gotta find a balance....I'm thinking 165 would be a great balance, especially for the steep face climbing here that rewards a high strength to weight ratio...

130ish at 18. 10 grade drop out. Just sat around smoking weed eating cheetos and watching Hawaii 50 reruns. Gained about 8 lbs at 23 when I started climbing and got some muscles. Still at 138 at 43. I did get up to 155 a few years back when I spent a lot of time doing the float and bloat down our local rivers. Took about a year of not trying to lose the weight to get back down to my fighting weight.

but now on my around the world bike ride Im working out about 8 hours a day. Dont have a scale with me, but looking at the mirror Id guess Im under 160 - after two months on the road. Another 10 months and who knows. maybe back to high school weight. ha

Ummm...high school ranged about 118 to 122. Most if my adult life was around 126-128, except of course doing pregnancy (I sure didn't look as good as Sullly!)
Menopause....whoosh, whole different story. No longer running a few extra miles or skipping a meal had significant results in the weight battle. Pretty much have stabilized around 138-142 but needing to stay vigilant with working out and eating habits. When we go for months off shore sailing the set back is disgusting.
I have become "moderately anxious/obsessive" about fat/muscle percentages rather than just scale weight now. I'm at the age where muscle mass is diminishing, so I'm doing far more weight bearing workouts than ever before. My most recent dunk tank fat percentage put me at 25% which is good for my age. I'd like to get down to 22%.

I was skin and bones fresh out of high school, weighing in at 155, 6'3'', 1972.

Moved to Camp 4, ate potatoes and tuna fish, climbed and hiked all the time, never weighed myself for 3 years or so, then did in Colorado. 182 lbs, no fat to speak of. So about 25 lbs of muscle gain from steady climbing.

If I got on a scale today, I'd be within a few lbs of that, 40 yrs later.

Can't climb like I could then, heh!

If I had a couple months at it, I think I could come close though...

I read through everyones so far and only one person has even come close to weighing as much as I do. And I am lighter now then I was out of high school. Here's my timeline about as close as I can remember it.

Also I notice I'm a youngin in this crowd!

5'10"

2000 - 236lbs
2002 - 285lbs (48" waist and XXXL shirts)
2004 - 250lbs
2006 - 228lbs
2008 - 235lbs
2013 - 240lbs

I seem to fluxuate between 230 and 240lbs a lot. I can lose 9 lbs in mostly water weight in two hours.


Heres some pictures. I'll scan in one of my "larger" images later as I don't think I have any online.

Even at 5'10'', 145, 18 years old, I had a 34'' waist. I was skinny as hell, but the bone structure was there.

Now, at 34, I'm 165, and have filled into my build. There are pounds to be lost for sure, but I'm no fatty. Just covering my bones I guess. Jajaja.

Graduation day, 5'8", 133lb. Wrestled at 125 that year, first year that dieting to make that weight for matches was hard and sometimes iffy. Only missed once though.


At 40, and for the past 7 years or so, I stay between 130-140, with an ideal climbing weight about 132 or 133. Below that things just get tweaky and connective tissue feels weird. After winter holidays, usually at 140, then cut through the late winter and maintain 132-137 through the spring-fall climbing season.

Um, speaking of "no worries", are you suggesting that Dean is one of them fellas that will show up at his front door in a pair of those euro style slingshot deals that they (euros young & old) wear at their beaches, etc?

just wondering b'cuz he gave me an open invitation to drop by his homestead whenever i'm in the area (looking forward to meeting the man) but, the old ticker ain't what it use to be (not sure it cud handle that big of a shock right outta the blue). i mean, i suspect that cud very well be the reason i eventually go (had heart attack/surgery at 49 y.o.), but, not...well, ya prollie get the picture. i'm cool with it, just need a little heads-up warning!

Kalimon - Not even Joel Osteen?
Can only speak for myself, and I could be mistaken, but I find him particularly deplorable.

edit: ok, just saw the "panty" pic of Cragman you were referring to on the 1st page of this thread. no big deal. i got several rash guards (worn under wetsuit/top & bottom) that are similar to those. you can, switch from wetsuit to board shorts right out in public...no biggie (yud like the SoCal beach scene, rj, lol).

well, i suppose an apology is in order. my imagination got the best of me. but it was all rj's fault..."panties" sheesh!

I was 235 when i graduated. At 6'7 that's still a little chubby. Got down to 220 when i moved to whistler and pretty much stabilized there.

This winter in the hospital i got down to 205 and felt a little frail at that weight.. (I guess spinal cord injury could have contributed to that as well... Lol)

I got back up to 230 when i got out, and my sweet tooth ran a bit wild from 3 months of hospital fare.. I'm back down to 220 now. I've cut nearly all the pop out of my diet which has made a huge difference. I still cheat occasionally but try not to make it too often.

Now: 185 lbs at 6'and 33" waist.


I'd like to lose 10 lbs and get the great washboard back. I need to SUP more, climb more, fly my paraglider more and eat less. By the way, when my wife left about 2 years ago I radically lost weight. Didn't eat much. Depression. Great way to lose weight and fast! (Don't recommend it though.) It's all come back now.

130, but I had very little muscle. Now I could stand to lose 10, but don't sweat it.
Got down to 120 or so at one point in my early 20's when I was trying to get modeling gigs. The Agency did weigh ins any time you came to the office. My maximum was 124. When I started climbing and gaining muscle weight, I weighed in at 130 one day and was told no more gigs till I went "on a diet". I ripped off my shirt (sports bra underneath) flexed my big biceps and abs and said, "I am on a diet, of rock!" Then I think I probably told her to f*#k off.

Never skinny. Up and down 5 lbs from summer to winter. Working obscene hours as management during strikes, put on one lb per week due to the interruption in my running program. It would take roughly one month to lose one pound, but it would be permanently gone. I don't like to throw away 20 - 30 year old clothing since it still fits. The weight has shifted around some, smaller buns, bigger waist. 35 years of running will do that to you.

Oddly enough I did not weigh myself when I graduated from high school. I was told I had a high IQ though. I would think that it's gone down some in the interim.

EZ come EZ go.

In 1978 I can remember dropping to 168 while training for marathons, went back up to 175, hit 168 again somewheres around 2004-5. Currently 175.

Hope this helps. Weight fluctuation is much easier to understand than varying between hypo and hyper thyroidism, no?

I didn't grad high school either but got the equivalency. I have a bachelors and now an ADN. The lesser degree is pulling much more of its weight, ironically enough. If you go to a crappy HS and you are halfway smart, I would actively recommend dropping out and to start getting college credit at your local CC. They are likely wasting your time at HS and just penning you in like an inmate while teaching you an irresponsible child's mentality and collecting money for your attendance.

As far as weight, I'm not sure. I know I had a late HS period where I was vegetarian and weighed around 160. A couple of years after I shot up to 190 (non-veggie/beer drinking at this point). I seem to collect the weight in my face, so an old classmate saw me and mentioned that I'd really gotten fat. That was it, I started running and working out, and haven't been at that weight since.

I am currently in the low 170's, which is a pretty manageable weight at 6 feet tall for me. I can get down to 165 but that is not realistic for me to keep in the domestic setting.

I got into easy running and fitness after after dropping out of college.

10 or so year later I got serious about fitness and used O uptake for mental health and weighed about 185 but only had a body fat percentage of 5.6 and started doing triathlons.
Credit: Tobia

I swelled up to 220#'s (2001) after being plagued by lower back injuries and giving into the woes of depressive illness, marriage and back issues. After having some back surgery and ignoring some people's advice about not running, I'm back to 185 and running 35 - 45 miles a week.

Latest pic I have (Feb 2013), still at 185#'s; but a lot slower and older.
