    I was 5'5" and 123 pounds when I was injured in 6/81. I went down to about 100, then, after my year (9/84 to 9/85) at Walker Institue in L.A., I weighed 112. I'm now back to around 100.

    I'm about 5'4", it changed daily before (don't ask how that worked!) Before the acident, I wieghed between 130-140. Now, 1yr post injury, I estimate 120ish. My quadbelly doesnt help me look that size tho, but who cares!

    Hard to measure the height after 33 years but I was 6'1" pre. I weigh 185 and it has been steady for 15 years.

    How/where/on what are you guys weighing yourselves?

    im 5' 7'', pre SCI 135-140, nowadays 115-120, maybe less, i think i've lost a few pounds since last time i checked. i was told by SCI standards that i'm overweight, but i don't see how i weigh myself at the SCI clinic; they have one of those scales you roll on and just subtract the weight of your chair.

    I weighed 180 pre-sci. Droped down to 160 in the hospital, then I gained up to 200+. I've lost weight since then, last time I was weight over a year ago I was down to 190. I'm curious as to what I weigh now, I've lost some fat and put on some muscles.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, I'm 6 ft. even when I could stand.

    When they weighed me, I rolled up on a scale, then transfered to a chair and they weighed my wheelchair and subtracted the difference.

    Learn from the mistakes of others, you won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.
