Gained 10 pounds while I was in college
 
It's been six weeks since I've become a college freshman and I've already gained ten pounds. I went from 125 to 135 pounds and this is due to my unlimited access to the buffet-style dining halls.

Should I be worried about this weight gain though? I'm only 5'6-5'7 and I can still fit into my 28-inch jeans and my even skinnier skinny jeans. I also can run as much as I could before going to college and I still take a long time to get tired when playing tennis.

Maybe the extra 10 pounds was muscle? :shock:
But then again, I still feel like I look the same.

Dude... lol.

I'm about your height and im hardly "fat". I weigh 150 lbs.

I dont know if you're serious or have some type of body image issue lol.

It probably is "fat" but even at 135 lbs. you're still a little underweight IMO.

Take advantage of the unlimited soda refill. It worked for me and I couldn't gain a single pound.

TheCheese 11-10-2012 01:24 AM

You didn't gain 10 pounds of muscle in 6 weeks, man. It's mostly fat, but 135 at 5'6-5'7 is probably about average.

Hopefully you'll gain more than weight there. "Gained 10 pounds while I WAS in college" is atrocious for someone who got there 6 weeks ago. How about "gained 10 pounds since I've been in college"?

He's from America and hes a male. That's VERY low. lol. In this country, 5'6-5'7 and 135 lbs. would be great for a FEMALE and practically a miracle for a male.

I'm going to say the "average" American male who is 5'6-5'7 is going to be at least 20 lbs heavier, if not more. I know some guys who are 50+ lbs. heavier, in fact.

I'm 5'6-5'7 and im 150 lbs. and im definitely not fat at all. I'm not "shredded" either. I'm "muscular", but neither "fat" nor "ripped". When I was into "body building" (if I could ever call it that, lol) I was about 145 lbs and very lean. I looked pretty "huge" at that weight and some people thought I was "175" simply because muscle "looks" a lot heavier than fat.

Because of all this, im not sure if this guy is trolling.

Hey Fatso (Roy125)..:)
Better skip a meal, once a day...or, think of this. When the apocalypse happens, you can live 2 weeks longer than your skinny old self without eating. Still gotta drink thous.
So do you hit the tennis ball harder? And are the college girls flocking to you? THAT's what is important.

Roy125 11-10-2012 01:44 PM

I know that 135 pounds for my height isn't that bad but still, a ten pound gain in a few weeks is still scary.

Needs a dbl shot daily

Your weight isnīt that bad, but the important thing is how much is muscle and how much fat, two people can be the same height and weight and have a complete different body. Maybe you are what is called skinny fat, slim but no muscle.

The Djoker 11-11-2012 12:22 PM

unlimited access to the buffet-style dining halls...more like unlimited access to BEER :) seriously though, if you've started drinking a lot more beer (as i, and most people i know, did upon entering college), that is probably the culprit

Maroon_Tenniskid 11-11-2012 02:04 PM

HAH! Man I'm 5'11" and was 120lbs coming into this year as a college freshman and after 10 weeks, I'm 125lbs. I feel the same too haha. I think it's perfectly normal

ramos77 11-11-2012 07:38 PM

you need to have sex dude

SoBad 11-11-2012 07:45 PM

Six weeks? When did the semester start - end of September?

I wouldn't worry about the pounds as long as you feel good - there are a lot of factors affecting the measurement.

NLBwell 11-11-2012 08:06 PM

Like the airplane who's engines have failed and is diving into the groud, it isn't the current position, but the trend that is disturbing.

5'6 135 is middle of the normal BMI range. Maybe being middle of the BMI range is exceptional in America, but that's just goes to say something about the average American. You used to be into body building, you're probably significantly more muscular than the average guy. If a non-muscular guy is 155 at 5'6 he's getting close to being slightly unhealthy, which may be what is considered "average" in America.

If your weight keeps going up, start to worry. The buffet style dining halls are good as long as you avoid the junk food and eat a variety of foods including plenty of vegetables.

Most colleges also have gyms. Start using it a couple of times a week and lift. You should be able to tell if you're getting fat by looking in a mirror.

Sabratha 11-11-2012 09:13 PM

You should look at gaining weight, not losing it.

charliefedererer 11-11-2012 10:13 PM

Question: Are you using the same scale to confirm your weight gain?

That is, home bathroom scales are notoriously inaccurate by a few pounds.

Are you comparing your weight at home on a scale to your weight in college on a different scale there?

If so, you may not have gained as much weight as you think.
