On the BBC news last night they were talking about obesity and that the average man in the UK is 5'9" who's weight should be 11 stone up to a max of 13stone-ish, over that you re medically obese. Now as someone who s into his 22nd year of service and keeps fit etc I don't think that scale fits squaddies - I remember when I joined up in Juniors and my neck, chest and shoulders expanded considerably with all the phys and I've never been able to drop back to the civvy styled weight charts since - no matter what deployment s or phys regime I do - although OP GRANBY was an extreme diet for me- fking skimpy rations QM got an MBE! My worry is that with so many civvy doctors in med centres these days are they going to mark us all down as medically obese? I'm 15 stone ish and fit with a 'thick-ish' middle but certainly not obese - I can even see my tadger if I look down and thats a hard target to spot believe me!! Is it just me who thinks the weight charts should have a seperate squaddie section or am I just a fat bastard?
