Unless you have an usually low self esteem, is caring about your body weight a big deal? Since Hs, I've already put on 40 pounds and still look like the same old me. I wouldn't see any changes unless I gained like 60 pounds or something but to be honest, even putting on a little fat hasn't really bothered me a bit. I used
to be very conscious 8 months ago but now I realized that it's more important to eat right and occasionally exercise. Unlike my bro who's always getting sick from
eating junk food and god knows how much he's drinking, I RARELY get any serious illnesses. Even weighing 65+ pounds more than him, I still feel great about myself
since I'm always trying to eat the right goods.

I've been on 190 for about 4 months and as of now, I weigh about 200 at only 5 foot 9 inches. I still have enough stamina to take Kendo for 2 hours straight
and hike up my local hill for about 1 hour not counting breaks 2 times every week. It may not sound like a LOT of excercising but it's MUCH more than the average people get in the States and most western countries..

And if weight keeps me from getting a relationship, so be it! More the reason to look for a successful relationship that won't die over frivolous things like
fat. :rolleyes: IMO, society is just too worked up over losing weight and it's becoming more overrated, and not to mention.. stupid. If it's serious
like going from 20-30 BMI, theres a problem, but putting on 5 extra pounds and [bleep]ing about it?...seriously.

You're free to call me a social rebel or w/e....I'm only speaking my mind against the world's attitude on weight gain.

If i wasn't diabetic I wouldn't care as much. I weigh 177 pounds now (80.5 KG) and thats still a little overweight for my height as a diabetic. I've weighed as much as 225 pounds (102.3 Kg) and thats when I was at my unhealthiest. Now in terms of looks I don't really care as much, I have a high self esteem about my looks. If people (or women) dont like it then whatever, I won't change how I look or act for anyone one person.

I do care, although very slightly, I suppose I'm over what I'd like to be, but if I truly and deeply cared, I'd get bothered and try to lose the weight.

I'm about 140 pounds right now and it's the highest I've ever been. If I hit 155 or so I'm going to lose it back down to like 130 which is the usual for me. I don't want to slip up and someday end up 250 pounds. So yeah, I care about it.

125 lbs, don't care about my weight as long as I keep getting stronger each week from lifting. If I was fat, I'd probably care about my weight, though >_>

Ha.! Type 2 obviously. I actually graduated highschool at about 200 pounds, a bit overweight, then I randomly got type 1 diabetes like, idk, a year later (no clue exactly when) and was pretty much an anorexic 140 when I got diagnosed with it. Back at 160 now.

The way I see it, [bleep] the weight on the scales. Some guys, say Albel's height (no idea how tall he is) are 225 pounds of pure muscle. I'd like to lose a bit of the excess fat I have and turn it into muscle, but that doesn't mean I have a problem with the number I'm at.

Well, I care about my weight, but imo screw the scales and just look at your body after like you shower or something and ask yourself if you're ok with it or want to change it.

Uh nope...be type one for 11 years buddy. Me weight was good till I got on a insulin pump when I turned 13. I would then give the shot acting insulin and then eat whatever I wanted to. I guess I was making up for when I did eat correctly.

I care, but physical condition is part of my job. I'm regularly tested on physical ability and lower body weight generally helps me perform better.

Underweight and overweight are just two extremes of the same scale, neither are very desirable. Good that you're putting on though.

It's good to care about weight (within reason), if you don't then you don't care about health. Being 190 pounds isn't exactly unhealthy. If you were like 250...then yeah, be concerned

Not really, at 115 Lbs 5'5" I eat enough and get enough physical activity, but I just don't grow much. I really don't see anything wrong with my current state.

I'm overweight, but I'm still fit and healthy to do the tasks my life requires. I've been slightly overweight for my whole life so I can't blame video games, especially not when I play football during my free time as well.

Does it bother me? Nah not really.

I care. I mean I have never purposely tried to lose weight, but I've never felt I had to. I've always been on the lighter side of average and I'm happy with that. But if I ever got overweight, I would care and then I would try to lose weight.. not because society demands it of me, but because I think I would just feel gross.

I care more about my health than my weight although fat is something I do care about that I wouldn't want too much of. I want to study medicine and in one of my work experiences did some observation in the local hospital's A&E what you Americans call ER. I got to watch a appendectomy on a seriously overweight teenager and not only the difficulty that the fat caused in the surgery but also how disgusting it was to see the surgeons pulling it apart to get to the operational area - it seriously made me see just how bigger a problem excess fat is even if it isn't causing direct problems to your health, it makes everything more risky, everything more difficult and the long term health effects on both your joints, your circulatory system and in some cases mental health make it well worth the effort to lose excess fat. That being said if your happy with your weight and your healthy then don't become ill over losing it - it is more important to eat well than lose weight. The misconception in western culture that being thin is healthy is just wrong there are plenty of thin people who can suffer high blood pressure and raised cholesterol from eating badly.

I care, but in the last year or so I haven't really put much effort into staying healthy as I should. I'm like 6'0 and about 185 pounds, which I think puts me right on healthly in terms of BMI. I probably should be a bit closer to 180 pounds, but I think I've lost a bit of muscle and gained a bit of fat. I haven't really been to the gym regularly for nearly 9 months...

But I'm ok with it because I still play a bit of sport and I know I'm not fat or anything. I think most people would like to be fitter/healthier than they are, even if it's just a little.

I don't really care from a looks perspective; I do care quite a bit from a health perspective. You can talk all you want about being healthy at 40 lbs overweight; you're what, 18..19? You'd have to be morbidly obese to see major health problems at that age. It's when you get older that your weight really bothers you.

I'm 6"0, 155 lbs, at my heaviest I was 170. (which was right in the middle of when I was working about so probably 10lbs of that extra was muscle).

I'm 6'4 and weight has never really been a huge problem to me, except when I finished school I stopped sport all together, went to England for 5 months and pretty much ate fish and chips the whole time I was there. I knew I was putting on weight but didn't think it was that bad until I got back and my mum started telling me I looked like I had put on too much weight, and my friends told me the same thing. I was only 190 pounds which doesn't seem like that much, and my BMI told me I was normal weight. Anyway, I got back into sport and exercising and started eating a bit better, best thing I've done..Two years later and I'm now 163 pounds of muscle :shades:

5'11, 164lbs. Which is pretty much the middle between under and overweight. Pretty happy. Don't particularly take care with what I eat (If it tastes good, I'll eat it), but I do enough exercise every day to burn it off.
