I can't believe that this actually exists.

We had a sanctioned shoo-fly pie eating contest two weekends ago. [Smile] I wish I hadn't had plans or else I would've tried to compete in the amateur event.

I won a pie eating contest a few years back.
I am such a fat cow.
OOOOOOOH Vent time, everyone !!

I have been gaing weight without cause. No, I am NOT expecting. Some of you may know that I went to ROTC camp a few weeks ago . I ate three times a day (hardly anything except for a big breakfast). I was sweating bullets, marching, swimming, running, and climbing over shit.
I CAME BACK WEIGHING MORE THAN WHEN I LEFT !
People have told me the whole muscle-is-heavier-than-fat thing, but all of my friends' clothes were getting looser by the freakin hour... mine didn't.
Any ideas?

Thorny, unless things have changed very radically since the pictures on your profile and Myspace were taken, I'd suggest that you should not expend too much mental energy on achieving your ideal weight, and get on with enjoying your life. You are plenty good looking enough already, any more and you'll only cause traffic accidents. [Wink]

Actually , when it come to eating contests, thin asians do better than fat americans becuase their stomachs can expand. If you have too much fat in your belly your stomach cannot expand to fit more food in.

Are you planning to go on a hot date with that dude named Skeletor? If not, you sure as hell don't need to lose any weight.

Thank you all. I know that I am not quite obese, it's just that Im worried about 15 extra unexplainable pounds.

Last time I checked (A couple months ago) I was down to 170lbs (77 kg??) I was up to 210lbs (95 kg??) when I decided I was to fat. I gave up pop (soda) and cut a lot of sugar out of my diet.

Thorn, I think you are at about that age where this stuff is just going to start happening without you having control over it.

There's nothing wrong with me, This is how I'm supposed to be.

T0F, it's not unheard of for women to gain weight during puberty. Maybe you're just a late-bloomer. [Razz]

That's called muscle which has a higher density than fat so you
can gain more of it without it affecting your appearance (except
in a positive way). With more muscle your base metabolism will
be higher making it harder for you to add fat. Seems to me that
you're on the right track. [Wink]
