Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. So i asked people for their honest opinions, and my acne kind of went away but its still all over my face. My friends said i'd be so pretty without acne, and all my guy friends said i'd be the prettiest person in the school without it. It makes me so depressed D: And all my stress makes it worse, halp?

  2. What type of dog do you have? How much does it weigh? Is it really a good idea to go running with a dog? Do you think your insecurities are harming your dog?

    Welcome to ARRSE by the way. :D
  3. Running 4 times a week is fine.

    Weigh yourself ONCE a week. Try to do it at the same time of day and with the same clothes on (I weigh myself on a Monday, naked, just before I shower). This will give you a more accurate idea.

    Avoid BMI like the plague - it is crap. BMI only uses a correlation between your weight and height. Muscle weighs more than fat for a given volume and therefore somebody with lots of muscle mass will have a high BMI. You can tell if you are too fat or whether you are heavily muscled. Did you know that if you put Arnold Schwarzenegger's height(188cm) and weight(113kg) into a BMI calculator he is classed as obese with a BMI of 32? Do YOU want to tell Arnie that he is obese?

    Running with a dog is fine as long as it is a dog that can run. taking a Border Collie for a jog is fine but a minature datschund less so :)
  4. Dear Kenny, if I may make a couple of recommendations. You might find it of value to replace your last meal in the evening with a protein drink. I'd also recommend weighing yourself every morning, after taking a slash and/or a dump, and every evening just before you jump into your scratcher. Do this for a solid week. You'll find, as you already have, that your weight will fluctuate wildly, but weighing yourself twice a day for a week will give you a much more realistic idea of how the weight's coming off. It's a comparatively slow process, but determination is all that's required.

    Let us know how you're faring from time to time.

  5. 1. Throw away the scales, you are becoming obsessive compulsive.
    2. Ask yourself why do you want to do this.

    You may need to see a doctor, an 18 year old should not be doing this.
  6. Are you Kenny from Southpark and if you are I claim my fine, five pounds, sterling?

  7. Does me waiting for a reply from a one-post-wonder recommending an amazing product/supplement/service make me overly cynical?
  8. Fukc sakes, 18 and called Kenneth?

    Agree with the wah call.

    Sorry Kenneth.
  9. I wouldnt worry about your weight fluctuating at all, everyones does. Dehydration levels can make a noticable difference to your weight, purely because your body has so much water in it - so when you said you weighed yourself straight after a run and it was lower, thats why.
  10. You need to calm down on the weighing, once a day at the very most. Also if you're going to weigh yourself everyday, do it at the same time, ie, first thing in the morning. Funnily enough, I always find I weigh more after a run! Besides....scales don't show fitness.
  11. By the sounds of that you know yourself that BMI is useless, as already alluded to by other people on here. It doesn't take muscle into account so why the hell it is adopted by anyone in the medical profession, the forces etc is beyond me, even as a rough guide. You know if you are unhealthy and overweight or not.

    Are you stretching off properly? If yes then you are overdoing it at the moment. It's as simple as that. Either that or you run like bambi in which case you either have a big physiological problem or you have bad trainers.

    I've been there and back on weight issues and still struggle with certain elements of how I perceive myself. It's like being a permanent big girls blouse. Don't beat yourself up about weight and look for short term measures to solve it because we are not designed to do that. We are designed to run about like f*ck every day and eat every single time we feel hungry. Just keep working hard and eating when you're hungry.
  12. Seconded. According to BMI, every member of the England Rugby team Front Row who won the World Cup back in '03 was obese. It would be a very brave/suicidal man who would call them fat! 8O :twisted:
