Default What's your lowest weight...

I've been overweight since childhood. My lowest weight since I was 18 was probably 250-260. I'm 28 now. That amazes me... I've never been close to being thin. I don't know what's worse, being thin and then gaining a lot of weight, or never having been thin at all. Or maybe they're both equally bad... Hehe.

So what's your lowest weight as an adult? I'm curious.

I've been fat since I was a kid; I'm only 18 now. So 240lbs, I guess. :P

The lowest I've ever been was 110-115. That was when I started high school. By the end of my senior year I was probably 130 or so. I got back down to 115-120 before I left for college. I graduated college at about 165 and had reached 190 by the time I was 25. I went to Jenny Craig and got back down to 150. From there my weight steadily increased until I hit my all time high of 214. I may have gained and lost the same 10 pounds 3 or four times during that time frame. I don't recall a time that I ever just maintained my weight. I've been either losing weight or gaining it for as long as I can remember. By the way, at 115 I thought I was fat. If I had only known then what I know now!

My lowest adult weight was 205 right after having my daughter. It was the weirdest thing because I lost so much weight after having her. Of course I didn't appreciate it at the time and now I WISH I could be 205 again.

My lowest adult weight was 125-19 yrs old, now i'm 205, my highest was 217
That is a good question about what is harder to always have been fat, or to have been skinny at one time. My husband has always been fat.
Me, i look back at pictures and it kills me, breaks my heart, the saddest part is that even at 125lbs...and height 5'5-i still thought i was fat.
So i never got to even enjoy it. Now i look back, and think D*MN-you looked gooooooooooooooooooooooooood!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've had a weight problem since birth. So as an adult, I guess my lowest weight was 229 (and I managed that one through Weight Watchers). Ouch, that hurts. I quit because I was too cheap to keep paying and not stay for the meetings. Wow, I saved money, great job Mary! Where did THAT get you?

I weighed 166 for about an hour in 2001 . I still felt "fat" then. What an idiot I was! Is it just that the brain takes longer to adjust to reality? Or is fat a state of mind? Hmmm....

My lowest adult weight was 130 lbs. I'd been overweight my entire adolescent life (up to 200 lbs.), and shed the extra poundage over the course of 2 years. My record low was at my wedding, and I'd venture to say I was almost too thin - my brother who I hadn't seen in years commented at the reception that I needed to eat!

In the 2 years since I've been married, I've put on a little over 10 lbs. Actually, I'd put on 20, but I've lost 10 since the holidays. I'm very comfortable at 140, but I have to maintain vigilance to not pack it back on.

I think like so many people, I felt fatter than I really was when I was younger (*waves to CLCSC145*). I know when I graduated HS I weighed 165 and felt like a huge whale. Lost 15 pounds that summer and started college at 150 -- in my head still "fat" but better. By the time I graduated from college I was at my current weight, about 220. I know in the next few years I got back down to around 200 briefly, then back to 220 or so...

Then I ballooned to 250ish in grad school and worked my way back AGAIN to this 220 or so weight before gaining 75 pounds in less than 7 years to get to nearly 300...

So, what was the question again?

I guess my answer is 150 (at age 18), but not for long. Nearly all of my adulthood I've been above 200 pounds.

My lowest adult weight was around 120 at age 18. Like several others have said, I thought I was fat then. I remember thinking I was fat even in grade school ~ I'm not sure how I got that idea. I guess because I am short ~ to me I looked puffy. I put on weight in college, got back down before I got married, had a baby and it has steadly crept up over the years. It had been in the 190-200 range for several years. I did good about 5 years ago, and got back down to 180ish, but messed up and gained it all back. The highest I got was 240. A couple summers ago, I got back down to 203 ~ darn ~ I was so close to onderland and blew it again.

I don't know what is wrong with me to keep blowing it and not making it to goal. And I don't know what is wrong with me that even when I lose weight ~ when I look in the mirror, I don't look any smaller ~ I still see the same huge fat me.

I spent two summers at Weight Watchers camp at around 13 or 14 years old, and I think I ended at about 150 pounds the second time (started both summers around 170/175 I think). I couldn't keep it off after then and slowly added weight over the years.

I was 260 shortly around the age of 19 and I'm turning 31 next month. I was 300 when I was 14, went down to 260 when I was 16 after a heavily restricted diet and exercising 2 hours per day. I went up to 300 lbs again by the time I was 18 then I stopped eating for a few months around the age of 19 and went down to 260, then went back to 300 shortly after.

I've always been a "big" girl. Shopped in the Pretty Plus section at Sears as a child. My teenage average and up until age 25 or so was 200 (180-220) pounds. Then I gained up to 284. Got down to 172 for my wedding day 7 years ago, and had been gaining ever since until recently.

The lowest recorded weight I can remember is 208 lbs as a high school senior. I have steadily gained over the last 20 some years to 340 (my highest).

What I weigh now. I was never thin growing up, and I don't have actual weights because I didn't weigh myself, but I know that the smallest clothes size I wore after I hit about 14 was two bigger than the clothes I wear now, so I think I'm fairly safe in saying I was heavier than I am now.
