When I came to college six months ago, I was 17 years old, I weighed right under 150 lbs, and I my height at that time was 5'11". Now, I am 18 years old, I am still 5'11", and I currently weigh right under 170 lbs. (My gallery pics are about a year old now) I don't consider myself overweight even though my stomach bulges considerably. I can remember back to the good old days when my stomach was so much smaller (like in the pictures) I am very afraid of gaining weight as I am sensitive about my self image. I have a target (ideal) weight of 145 lbs. My question(s) is(are): Am I crazy for having such a target weight? Should I expect to gain more weight? Is gaining more than 170 lbs a "bad" thing for me? What is overweight for my height and/or age? Just to step outside myself for a second, I must say that I applaud myself for approaching this forum with my problems as I would NEVER do this before. I guess that shows how comfortable I am here.
