I need you to guess what I weigh. (Pic)

Hello! I'm new here. This isn't quite a testimonial, but I wasn't sure where else to post. I've been crossfitting for about four months now. Did about 4 years of traditional bb type routine before this.

I love crossfit. I love where it's taken my body (not to mention my overall performance and health), but the number on the scale doesn't always sit right with me. I've dropped a good chunk of weight since I started, but I'm not trying to loose weight. It's just shedding off me. I was always skinny before I started hitting the gym, and up was the only place I wanted to go. Since starting crossfit, I've realized weight isn't quite so important compared to your performance, but it still shocks me when I look down at a smaller number every week. So... I know this seems superficial and I'm sorry this pic is so myspacetastic, but I would really appreciate your honest guess at what I weigh. I'm curious if perception lines up with the scale.

I don't think you weigh more than 165. Regardless, you should gain at least 20 lbs, and then I will like you better.

I would have guessed about 155. I wrestled in highschool at 155 I was taller than you though.

I used to marvel at guys that would wrestle in my weight class. They looked like monsters. They were a few inches shorter and they seemed huge.

I'll guess 160 in that picture, and I'll ask what/how much you're eating...

Re: I need you to guess what I weigh. (Pic)

Thanks for the replies. I'll let you know how close you all were a little later.

What/how I'm eating:
When I first started crossfit, I was eating junk. But my diet was always a ton of meat. So naturally, I figured paleo would be a good fit for me. I didn't try paleo to gain weight though, I just wanted to put better fuel in my body. So at this point I'm kinda paleo (i add milk and some occasional goat cheese). I eat a ton of steak, ground turkey, and bacon. I squeeze in frozen vegetables when I can. And I eat a lot of nuts. I won't eat much during the day because I have trouble keeping it down during a wod. most of my eating is after the wod up until bedtime. I work nights though so it's not like I'm waiting till the end of my day to eat all my food.

Yea, like everyone else has said, you look pretty small so I'd guess 150-160. Get yourself up to 180+ for serious.
