So, you’ve got yourself a digital scale and tossed the old analog monster into the trash. Now you need to pick a day and time to climb on board and check out the damage. Why do I say damage? Because most people are fat, whether they want to admit it or not. Why day and time, because, you are only going to weigh yourself once a week. Your weight fluctuates, so weighing yourself more often is not going to give you an accurate picture of how you are doing in your weight loss regime. I can only think of three kinds of people who get on a scale more often: anorexics, bulimics and assholes. So, unless you’re one of these, stick to the once a week weigh-in. Write down your weight and compare it to this chart. Notice there is no chubby category, nor is there a pleasantly plump. More people need to take a look at this chart. Too many drown in the quicksand of political correctness, they would rather be called weight challenged than deal with the fact that their fat. Most people crap a brick when they see what they should actually weigh. Then they throw their hands up in despair whining “I’m never going to be able to lose that much!” Personally, I think that’s all horse shit.
Surprise! The average guy on the street who is 5' 10" tall should weigh between 145 and 175 pounds, over 175 and your heading into Porky Pig territory.
