    I hit 200 after I quit wrestling...about 22 or so. I stayed 220ish through my 30s, 230ish through my 40s until this winter, when I caught myself at 250! Back down to about 240 now...decided to get back into racing this year as motivation to drop back down to 220 or less.

    Graduated HS at 195-200 (the end of lacrosse season=fit)
    6 mos later after 1st semester of college 240 thanks to pizza and beer (and beer and beer and beer...)

    up and down from 210 to 250 for the last 23 years

    the "downs" - 210-220 have all been thanks to cycling.

    242 now and will be 220 by September in time for charity tour

    I had a girlfriend who knew the key to a man's heart. I was 19 and just graduated HS, passed 200 and figured it was normal for a 6'1" guy. Now I'm working on getting back to 180lbs.

    Finished highschool at a lean 230lbs... 270lbs now and nothing is lean. Hoping cycling can help me drop 40lbs and then we'll see where to go from there.

    When I was in high school, I was always doing stuff and working. In college, I was walking all over campus every day. Then I started in on an office job and I would walk 50' from the car to the office and that was it. Poof. Clydesville.

    But wait, isn't 6' Clyde status, too? (I don't see that listed at the top of the forum, didn't it used to be there?) Anyway, that was about the end of 8th grade.

    at 6'4" my lowest weight was like 185lbs, but I was just too darn thin. I always felt best at about
    205-210lbs. over the years (47 now), lack of regular exercise, and ESPECIALLY stress added the lbs.

    sure, i could have ate better, but stress makes you eat comfort food. In addition, I had a few REALLY
    stressful periods where the level of stress cause me to drop lbs in no time, only to add them back times
    two in no time as well. and those never really came off. there were about 3 of those events in the
    last 15 years, and each one was worth around 10 lbs addition.

    I am now at 265-270 range. I hope, after getting my new recumbent and some back issues resolving
    themselves, to get to 235 or so...

    Somewhere around 27 - 28 yrs old. I think it was the year before my wife got pregnant. She had two kids within a couple of years and I never lost my baby fat. She lost hers pretty quick, its so unfair.

    At the end of my freshman year of college I was 6' 1" and 172 pounds. I crossed the 200 pound mark at 22. I gained a fairly consistent 10 pounds per year until 33. That left at 329 this passed January, when I said that enough was enough. I am trying to roll back at least 10 years in 2008. I am four years in at this point.

    I don't remember exactly when, but I was definitely above 200 during most of high school, probably peaking at about 220 my junior year. During the summer between junior and senior years, I lost a ton of weight -- mostly by a) not eating much, and b) biking a lot.

    When I graduated high school I was about 6'2" and 185 pounds.

    I know I'll never see 185 again (with the muscle mass I've added over the past few years, I'd need an amputation to get that low) but I'd love to see 220 again, hopefully by the end of this summer...

    Within the first year of marriage. I had an exercise physiologist tell me a few weeks before I got married that the average sized male gains 16 lbs during the first year of marriage. I was ultra-fit at 185 lbs and thought it would never happen to me. I was 185 the day I got married... 201 lbs (clyde status) on my first anniversary. 23 years later... I'm still a clyde (225 now... down from 240)

    Probably on and off from 8th grade through highschool but I was 178 after graduation. I lived on pot pies and such, cheap ones until I was 301 twice and managed to drop as low as 201 after which I headed back up and have been 269-289 since. Part of the weigh loss was because I learned how to cook from Mom and my Grandmas and part of that was how to make something from whatever you were given and because I jogged and ran the high school track, working up to 26 non consectutive miles a day. I let go in the fall and even with smaller eating habits I let it go south. I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes in 1995 and since then have found it harder to lose weight. Meds? Some of it.

    About 6 years ago, when I quit smoking at the age of 28. I put on almost 40 pounds from it. Right now I am at 209 from a high of 218. I intend to be under 200 by june. Hopefully around 185-190 sometime during summer, then maintain it.

    At age 13 I reached clyde height - 183cm - and shoe size 13 (49).

    Didn't reach clyde weight until in my mid 20s.

    Most of my adult life 5'9" 160-185 lbs., then at age 42 in 2004, went completely tobacco free and promptly ballooned to 230 lbs. Started biking again in 06 and quickly got down below 210 but bounce between 202 and 215. I have re-arranged my eating habits, have a metric century May 10, and am currently at about 201-202 so I think I'm gonna bust that 200 lb. mark real soon. Maybe next week!

    I was a clyde at about 12 years old probably by weight. I got to 250lbs and lost some of it. I don't know when I quit growing, but I am 6'5". I remember passing size 12 shoes when I was 10 years old! (Wear 16-17 now)

    I was a fat kid and I now see in my daughter someone who doesn't eat crazily, isn't sedentary, and she is gaining weight faster than she should. This pattern seems to be a bit preprogrammed (no excuse) and despite working with her on it, it is still tough for me to watch.

    I flirted with being just under 200 in late high school--chasing girls, skipping meals, etc. College was rough...lots of food, computer networks to play on, got married and ballooned up. Got a job, went to grad school, and probably got close to 400 lbs, but I never got on a scale that could weigh me until I got back to around 350 where I am now.

    In HS I graduated at 225 (6'2") but I was fit. After HS I tried to make playing ball my living which didn't work out so I went into the military. Their highest weight for my height and age was 204lbs. As I didn't want to use their tape guide I cut the weight and felt and looked sick, probably because it was a rapid loss just to make weight. After the military college came and I got out of that about 230lbs maybe carrying 10lbs too much. Marriage and the first child, then the weight showed up, muscle mass went down.

    So I'd say the weight started to go up around the age of 26. I've never got it down to where it should be but I have lost up to 20lbs here and there only to put it back on over the winter, etc.

    Height wise I think I hit 6' at about 15 or 16. Weight wise I hit 200 around 19 or 20.

    Heaviest I've been is 245 and I'm 6'2" now. I started working out in November of 07, getting a little more into my cycling, and made some changes to my diet and I'm now around 220. Trying to lose more of the fat I'm doing weight training so I'm not so concerned about my actual weight. So far so good!
