Average Weight of a 50+

thought it would be interesting to find the average weight of posters to different threads such as commuters; 50 + and road cycling. if its actually interesting I'll share the results with each group. 1st 10 responders get included except if I can figure out how to make a poll. can a poll calculate an average? just reply with your weight and I'll do the math. I'll go 1st

225 lbs

EDIT 8/26/16 I was 217 lbs (8 lbs lighter but going on 6 yrs at this new desk job & not bike commuting or swimming anymore my body is an embarrassment. by July of 2010 I was called an Adonis at the pool by a neighbor & I was in the shape of my life)

You're going with an average of the first ten? Is that statistically significant? Are the first ten significant? I know I feel insignificant sometimes.
How many 50+ers hang out here? (<50ers/50-ers are insignificant)

An insignificant 195 can't remember if that is pounds or kg.
