    I am 5'11" and weighed 9 stone 5lb at university despite eating like a horse. I was training daily, swimming and kayaking, and could not put weight on. A doctor told me that I shouldn't be below 10 stone 7 lb... but I couldn't get near it until I was about 25.
    @TBlax 8 stone is TOO light at your height. Please get your thyroid checked outby a doctor... it's a simple blood test.

    The thing is I eat like nobody's business, I went through a phase of eating a lot of junk food too and I hardly put anything on. I did mention it to a doctor during an appointment a few years back and she wasn't very informative, she just said it was "high metabolism levels" - still no idea what that means, even more annoying was she was a temp and when I brought it up again recently it "wasn't in my notes" and I "didn't know what I was talking about.".. needless to say I've not been back to a GP since.

    You should go back. You are unlikely to be growing rapidly now, although you may still be growing. Make a specific appointment and don't 'just mention' your weight.. discuss it properly and find out what you should be.

    I had an overactive thyroid after the birth of my son... that's basically your metabolism going too fast. You burn off food and then body fat and when there's no fat to burn on your body, your muscles start to waste. It is very serious. It took 6 months of 'block and replace' therapy to fix mine. Please get yourself checked out properly. At 19, you will feel indestructible... unfortunately, you aren't.

    My son is a year younger than you and 6'5"... he is 11 stone 5lb and as thin as a rake. I dread to think how thin you are.

    as the OP of the original 'weight loss' thread, i have been noticeably absent from both that, and this new one.

    I started the original thread when I realised I had a problem with my weight that needed fixed, but it has taken until now for me to actually do someting about it.

    I tried a weightloss hypnosis program, knowing that my mind was susceptible to change after reading a book about not smoking and never sminging since...

    It just made me more aware of what i was eating, and when i should be excersising, and i think it has been effective.

    I will post back here in a few months if it has had an effect. I am 95KG just now.

    So, in just about 12 months I have lost 4 stone and about 4" from my waist. My general health has improved and I feel great.

    Now, everyone asks me how I did it, and other than cutting calories from alcohol, nothing but being more active! I may do some before and after shots if my self consciousness subsides.

  8. Thanks to CHR1S from:

    A few pounds have crept on over the summer, but now that I am back to regular exercise and a regular diet, I am pretty confident it will go reasonably quickly

    Mr gee40 is a stone lighter than this time last year and fitter than he has been for years. We shame each other into exercise and not snacking

    I do a lot of exercise but I can't shame mrwITch into anything Which is a pity because he is a bit more overweight than he already was when he lost his job 5 months ago

    Well I'm still doing the opposite and trying to gain some mass. Swapped to a 5x5 routine that kicks my ASS now, and trading up Krav for MMA on Tuesdays. Sat at a not-especially lean 14 stone, but with at least 'some' ab definition. Getting old now though at 30, so gains are hard-won. HOPE TO GOD I'll be at 200lbs lean by next summer. That's about as 'big' as I want to be tbh.

    And well done everyone, and good luck with weight loss and fitness goals. We're all gonna make it!
