I had sort of the same thing happen to me back in february. Asthma-like symptoms, but albuterol did not do anything. If you see the doctor again, ask about atrovent. That stuff actually helped me.

Is that a steroid inhaler? I tried one of those once and it didn't help. But I'm willing to try everything again...

I'm not horrifically fat or anything...200 pounds at 5'7 (now...grr...), but I get dizzy and cough like I'm dying when I play hockey while guys with huge beer guts look at me sideways. It gets old.

Sweet.

I've got some muscle underneath the padding, 25%-ish body fat. About 170 is where I'd like to end up for hockey, which would be in the 15-18% range.

Why? I'm 6'2 170 and I'd rather be 185. Despite my attempts I haven't gained a pound since high school, although I'm sure saying this will come back to haunt me in about 10 years.

strictly speaking, isn't a bmi over 30 considered obese? that's too much mass for your heart and lungs to power efficiently in an endurance setting even if there is a lot of muscle under there.

What was your Army weight?

BMI is a pretty poor indicator of healthy weight though.

I'm currently 210lbs, not 220. Failed with converting, 95kg anyway and my BMI is 27.5.

I was at 200 when I left the army due to problems with my knee. My top weight was 230, that's from three years ago though.

i heartily agree, but always fall back on it anyway because it seems every world organization ranking is dependent on using it in calculating the relative health of a nation's population.

If you haven't seen "Indie Game: the movie" go watch it, it's on Netflix and is great.

Pretty cool quiz. I got 106/122.

I completely forgot some memorable player but I got most scrub players.
Quoting this again since it's a great quiz.

I like challenges.

I figure I'll join in on the discussion: I'm 5'9"-5'10" and weight between 175-185. I'd like to say its all muscle, but no. Once I got my desk job in the late summer, I really let myself go

Once I get back to school and start practicing for lacrosse again, I'll probably drop to a good muscle-based 175 or so. And I am completely fine with that.

EDIT: Holy ****, Sportcenter top 10 plays #5 was a hockey shootout play. From the USHL on Friday, some guy just completely donged on the goalie and made him look silly. But it made sportscenter! Hockey! It still exists!

I'm a total fat ****. 5'11" and 230 lbs. I've got some muscle, but I'm not ripped or anything. I always have to laugh though that I can see the outline of my abs even when I'm barely sucking in my stomach at all, although maybe everyone is like that. Looking forward to a full summer of working at UPS in those hot trailers and doing some running earlier in the day. If I could ever get down into the 185-190 range I'd be extremely happy.

If I do a quiz on Sporcle, I do 30 quizzes on Sporcle. I've wasted more time on that site than I care to admit.
