257. And yes I still fit in the Miata (could still drive it when I was 287). Look at it this way, I donít move around as much in the car wile driving spiritedly.

I used to a competitive long distance runner but my knees won't even let me go for a jog now (hence the incredible weight gain from 120 -> 160). I eat like I am still running 10 miles a day.

I try to only run on treadmill/dirt/track and avoid pavement. I shammed out for a month and didn't go to the gym and lost a full minute on my two mile.

I've been lucky to avoid injury with my knees (knock on wood). In 05 I had "runner's knee" and late 06 shinsplints, but those went away over Xmas leave. Now if my damn rotator cuff would heal I could start working upper body and get some of that back, my chest/arms are shrinking :(

Up until about 6 months ago I was jogging 2 miles about 2-3 times a week. It was taking 18-20 minutes. It's hard to believe I used to run the same thing in under 10 minutes back in high school. Makes you realize how old you are! I've got a friend that runs 6 miles a day but even a run of 4 miles will leave me crippled for a couple of weeks. The knees just can't take it any longer. I've been doing a slow hour maybe 1-2 times a week on the treadmill lately but that's not much cardio.

Hell when I was swimming year round I used to be 125 and cut as hell. *doh* Course I realize 125 is a rediculous weight...but the cutness I miss and getting away with 8 meals a day.

200 lbs @ 6'1"

Gym 4X a week just to maintain. Bad knee from football, bad elbow from bike crash really limit range of stuff I can do.

I try to run; there's just no power there, and it hurts a bunch. It's been just over a year since my surgery.

6' 200lbs - run 3 days and lift 2 days per week.
Never ceases to amaze me how the diminutive size of the car doesn't seem to repel the big ones.

Does skating count? I try to skate a little each week and hit the part at least once a month, and I am hopping to start skating at the park atleast 2 times a month. I miss having an 8 pack from skating.

6' 1" 230lbs here. Im big and tall and pretty healthy but a little fat. I fit in the miata with the seat all the way back and the only way I will ever get a roll bar is if I get a low racing seat at the same time.
