Weight worry please help

Seany

Newbie
I am due to go for my medical on Wednesday. I am worried I may be rejected because of my weight. I am 6ft 3 "" with weight of 17st 2lbs.
If I am knocked back would I get another chance to lose some weight and try again. Should I put my medical back or go for it. The weight I am carrying is mostly muscular. I would be really grateful for any advice.
Thanks Seany

You should go for the medical on Wednesday. The decision to pass you as fit or not will lie with the Doctor based on his/her examination of you on that day.

If the only thing he/she has a problem with is your weight, he/she will tell you what you should be aiming for and offer any necessary advice. He/she will ask you to come back on another date to be weighed again and, if you have reached the weight he/she suggested, he/she will then pass you as fit.

By the way, what are you joining as? When did you sit your test?

Let us know how it goes on Wednesday.

Ah, another "Yeah, but no, but yeah." armchair expert puts his head above the parapet.
If only the phrase targets will fall when hit had any relevance on the interweb!

Seany, check your weight /height Body Mass Index on one of the BMI calculators available on the web (BBC BMI is good as it's in Imperial rather then metric so no pesky conversions.), it's down to the Medical Officer but good luck.

I was 111kg when i went for my medical, was told to lose 15kg to get my bmi under 28 before i could pass the medical. The doctor also told me he didn't want to see me for at least 4 months as if i had managed to lose that amount of wait in 4 months i would probably not be able to keep it off, for long! It's know 3 months since that medical and i still have 4kg to go.

My best tip so far would be to stop drinking, as much.

Swap the pints for spirits. You're average pint has at least 300 calories, 8 pints = 2400 calories. A spirit and diet mix is only about 40calories.
