Guess how much DH weighs

So I am going to add DH (with his permission!) to the Zoe app which is helping researchers track what’s going on with Covid in real time (you report whether you feel well/unwell every day).

However, to add him I need to state his weight and he hasn’t weighed himself in about 20 years. We don’t own scales. His trousers waist measurement is usually 32”/34”, and he’s about 5’9”/5’10” tall.

Anyone any idea? I literally don’t even have a ballpark idea of what an adult male of his build /height weighs!

My dh has similar measurements and is about 11 stone.

he's got s significant belly, though slim-ish legs.
85kg would be my guess.
but get some scales.

This method is going to be quite inaccurate. I don't use the app, but if his weight is one of the useful details the app needs then just pop in to Boots on his way to work tomorrow?

I wouldn't say he has a "significant belly" hmm

I'd guess 80kg?

11/12 stone?

My DH is same height but slimmer and we think 11-11.5

He hasn't got a belly, poor bloke. 12.5 stone?

Is this going to be like a 'guess the weight of the cake' competition?

DH is 6 foot 1 and slightly leaner and he is 89kg

I would guess 83kg because he is slightly shorter

Significant belly 😂 alright love.

12.5 stone I reckon.

@dudsville “this method is going to be quite inaccurate” - I was really hoping someone could come up with his weigh to the nearest gram from this photo! Oh well! 😉😆

I'd say 12 stone

beautifulxdisasters Fri 11-Sep-20 21:00:09

I'd also guess 11 stone something. 11 stone 6 to 10 maybe?

If you think that's a significant belly you want to see mine hmm grin

ItchyScratch Fri 11-Sep-20 21:01:30

I’m 5’9 and thinner than him. I’m 11.5
So I would say he is 12-12.5 stone

Notashandyta Fri 11-Sep-20 21:01:35

11- 12 stone

Wigeon Fri 11-Sep-20 21:01:36

@Butterer re “guess the weight of the cake competition” - I could actually get him to go round a neighbour’s in the morning to get weighed (assuming most people have bathroom scales?) - maybe I should and then I can award a prize to the nearest guess?! I mostly just wanted to add him to the app tonight before I forgot, but could actually get him properly weighed and then we’d all know!

I don't think you need to be accurate to within the pound. I would say 12 stone.

Notashandyta Fri 11-Sep-20 21:02:07

In that case I will guess 11 stone 10 pounds grin
