About five years ago, I dropped 30 pounds and have maintained that weight ever since... well, plus or minus 10 pounds. Family and friends said I looked great. However, all these resources said I was still "overweight", which was surprising to me. So for a wedding two years ago, I dropped another 12 pounds. When that happened some family that hadn't seen me in a while thought I looked too skinny. Some thought I looked sick.
I ended up gaining that 12 pounds back (sort of on purpose) and am back at what I originally thought was my ideal weight and appearance. Now fast forward to this morning. I bought a new Renpho scale and weighed myself and it says I'm overweight and that I need to lose 16 pounds to be in my idea weight range, which is five pounds below my lowest weight from two years ago.
So now what do I do? Did I look too skinny two years ago because I didn't lift weights enough? Should I ignore this "overweight" level? I'm thinking the former, which is to add a better weightlifting routine. Any thoughts for a guy who was a teenager in the eighties?
