    Just wondering when they weigh in takes place...first thing? And is it similar to MEPS( strip down to underwear and hop on the scale type deal?).

    I'm about 6-7 pounds under my max(depending on what I eat) and I would like to be prepared since I feel I am cutting it close to my ship weight. thanks!

    It happens the first night. You wear clothes, minus the shoes. They subtract a couple pounds for the clothes.
    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    How did they handle the people that were over? Do they take into account weight fluctuations? 


    Thanks everyone for the input. I'm still cutting calories, drinking lots of water, eating no sodium or sugar and working out.

    Best to not find out what happens if you're over. If you pass weigh-in at MEPS in the morning, you should pass that night in Cape May. If you're close at MEPS, watch what you consume during the travel day.

    Im the same way, ten pounds under one day on one scale (the Meps scale) then the scale at my house after eating lunch and dinner im right at my max number.....It varies a lot with me something I have been very worried about since getting my ship date!

    Trying to cut calories and continue running but I am also working out my upper body for the first time seriously in my life and I am def adding muscle so the weight isnt really coming off

    I have lost more than one applicant for weight due to building muscle. Stay away from the heavy weights. With your doctors permission focus on you cardio. Overweight, whether muscle mass or fat, will get you sent home. There is no delineation between the two.

    I wish you the best of luck!

    Just for some clarification...my max is 150. I'm 144-146 depending how much I eat during the day. If I get to Cape May and I'm say 147 I'm still qualified correct? I know they want us 5 lbs below max, which I am but that's more for a precaution on weight fluctuation right? Not that I need to be 145 in order to qual.

    NGon I am the same way. I weigh myself in the morning I am 153 (max is 165) and at night I am 158 on the same scale. AND I do insanity or run at least 3 miles. If your max is 150.. and you weight 149, you are good. See you TUESDAY! WOOHOOOO

    I'm the other way around. I weigh in between 100-102 and have to be at least 100 so it's a little scary! If I were you I'd stay away from salty food that will cause your water to cling to your body, upping your weight.

    I guess on either spectrum its a scary scary thought to be dq'd for weight of all things. I'm drinking water like crazy and monitoring my weight after all my meals just to see how it fluctuates. I never go above 147 so I think I will be ok!

    I'm not sure that this unofficial site counts as cg approved. I would take that to mean uscg.mil sites, as well as unit sites, but not discussion forums. I wouldn't be caught posting on this site after today, at least not until you have your liberty days.

    No need for heart attacks people or name calling. We were given permission to come on this forum during our admin time. I'm now a week out of boot camp and reporting to my new unit in a few days.

    I was actually in the same company as Gonzalez.. They told us anything CG related was good to go.
