Yea, I was wondering if i was the only one wearing a size 4 jean weighing 130. Makes me feel pretty darn good....and solid. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] That brightened my day! YAY!

Haha yea, I'm the same way...I look at the scale hoping to have gained alittle weight (disappointed when the # is low) while most women are praying its a small number. amazing.

Yeah. I'm not afraid to tell people about my weight anymore. It doesn't bother me at all.

I tell them and they say "You don't look 1**!" Then its something like "You look about 100-110." and then they say "But you're mostly muscle."

as someone who views the scale as the main enemy i can definitly understand the feeling. but the main thing is to go by your clothing and common sense. hey they say that clothing and shoes add ten pounds..so in reality you where 130 :P hey if it still bothers you just tell the nurse next time that you would really appreciate it if she would let you weigh in naked...

How does a non contagious virus go around?? Anyways, 140 isn't bad, especially if its mostly muscle, witch it is. Plus you were wearing extra clothes, probably more clothes than ussual because its colder outside.

I think scales and BMI charts should be done away with period. I was into moderate weight lifting for awhile in high school before I got into bodybuilding. The scale and BMI charts convinced me I was fat and ended up falling into anorexia and bulimia. I'm obviously past that now. *yay* I think society places too much stress on "ideal weight" too much; especially for women.
