Hi guys, apologies if this has been asked many many times before, I've been thinking about joining 4PARA for some time, but I have this nagging feeling that I'm a little bit underweight - without sending an email with a picture of myself in speedos asking a recruiting Sgt to mark me out of 10, I wondered if there were any guys currently serving who are the lighter side who could give me a bit of advice - I'm 5 foot 11 and about 11 stone.
The fitness side of it all doesn't phase me too much, just don't want to rock up and be sniggered out of the door.
Has anyone joined and then commissioned? I'm about 18 months away from finishing a post grad qual, just wondered if anyone managed to juggle the two?

cheers for your help/advice, PM me if you want.
