Hey, this is my first post at these boards, been lookin round for a while, nice board n such...Just thought I'd ask if you people thought it was worth going to see a doctor about my weight, Im 17 years old, 6 foot 2" and I only weigh 10 stone (140 pounds). I was told that I shud go to the doctors about my weight by my girlfriend; she doesnt really mind, she just thinks it mite be unhealthy for me.Thanks for any adviceMr Otacon Edit - Added weight in pounds for non-english users
Hmmmm.....I'm not really sure how many pounds ten stone is, but there are a few English lads running around here who can tell you. eddiesteady (a member from the U.K.) had some concerns about his weight, but I can't remember how tall he is!
I was 6' at 140 lbs and I had people telling me all the time that I was really skinny. I've gained 20 lbs and am still the same height. Since then I've been told I look older and look healthier. I don't think you need to go to the doctor, just eat more. Are you suffering from any health problems that you know of?
Hmm, im in good health, very rarely get ill or anything and im active play football (soccer ) a few times a week n such... and i have started eating more, just thought the doctors would give me an easy way out lolgoes to get some cream cakesThanks againMr Otacon
Naw, I'd try to avoid the doctors. You seem healthy enough. Some of the things I've done to gain weight is eat like 4 times a day. Even if each sitting was smaller than my original 3 times a day. Also, snacking is good, just try to avoid too much so you will avoid a stomach ache.
Then snack i shall
Mr Otacon :angry:
(sorry for the one liner.. just wanted to say thanks again lol)
I'm not big on one liners either, but I had to say it.
