I know that you get weighed in at meps right before shipping. Do you get weighed in again during receiving at MCRD?

If you're close to your max, you'll get weighed once a week - bottom line...............get below your max.

As of 6/29/07 he's ..........................back to be Squad Leader and he hates it because he only gets 5 minutes to eat double rats (HAHAHAHAHAHA! They're trying to fatten his lanky a$$ up) - he says he's learned to eat quick but he feels that he's still lacking (cause he's working that a$$ of and staying hungry all the time).

If you're under weight they aren't going to drop you. They'll do all they can to put some weight on you- and I'd be willing to bet it will work. The time to worry about minimum weight is in the fleet when they aren't watching your food intake.

I was weighed at MEPS and the next time I was weighed was the week we picked up in bootcamp. Then in my platoon everyone was weighed every saturday night.

thanks snow......................acoording to that Matt should be between 156 and 226? Sounds like they're just trying to fatten him up a little - even still, he probably has the metabolism of a freakin Hummingbird so double rats would be a way to make sure he gets enough to burn off without him falling below the minimum.
