I am totally gutted for you, I have been reading your posts and it has helped me greatly with what to expect along the way. Hope you can loose that bit of weight and might see you when I start training on the 12th of June.

CHEERS MATE GUTTED AND IT DOESNT SEEM FAIR BUT RULES ARE RULES I GOT SELECTED FOR A DIFFERENT ROLE ASWELL THAN WHAT I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO BE DOING AND THERE WERE ONLY 10 OF US OUT THE 60 DOING IT SO WAS REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.
LIKE I WAS TOLD BY THE TOP MANAGER,THEY INVEST AROUND £25000 IN YOU IN FIRST WEEK ALONE SO YOUR AN ASSETT AND YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN OUT OF 14.000 APPLICANTS THIS YEAR AS OF FRIDAYS COUNT, SO THEY DONT WANT TO JUST CAST ME OFF WHICH IS GOOD BUT THEIR HANDS ARE TIED WHICH AFTER I WENT AWAY AND CALMED DOWN I COULD UNDERSTAND.LIKE I SAY APART FROM HAVING TO FIND A BIT OF TEMPORARY WORK IM NOT BITTER,WILL LOSE THE WEIGHT AND COME BACK IN 6-8 WEEKS AND WILL CONTINUE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AS THIS FORUM HAS BEEN GREAT

Absolutely gutted for you mate !! I know it's been a worry for many on here so thanks for sharing this ! It has just prompted me to go and weigh myself and fortunately I'm just under 15st but could have quite easily have been just under or over the 18st mark and your heads up would have allowed me 4 weeks to smash the gym and drop some weight !

Really hope you manage to get a quick turnaround and are back in training asap !

Absolutely Gutted for you buddy, I take it they given you the opportunity to drop the weight? Do they give you a time frame to do it in as just wondering as I start in a few weeks and think I may just be over the limit but due to medication I'm on losing weight takes longer than most. Think I need to weigh myself.
