a lot of people with muscle dysmorphia end up on the juice. I'm lucky where I have it, but it isn't that severe. At least at this point in my life, I have the idea in my head that I'm not small and that it is basically impossible for me to be as skinny as I think I am, but I still workout to increase my size so I'm not that small. If I don't go to the gym one day I feel guilty that I didn't go and get anxious until I go.

Muscle Dysmorphia is most common among male bodybuilders.

I'm going to go with what a few guys have said on here already. Get fit and then you'll lose weight. You will also gain muscle and build cardio, that's kind of inevitable.

If you spend some time pushing your own weight around, whether it's running or kickboxing or whatever, you'll put on some muscles in your legs and core.

Only way to find out is to start training.

Fight at both weights and then only you can make the decision.

Only thing we can do is tell you how to lose the weight. But 90% of this is on you.

Actually the best thing you can do is just get yourself to a point where you feel comfortable.High energy levels you feel good your sleeping better you have more energy. WHere you just feel right.. and whatever that weight happens to be, is the level you should compete at. At least until your skill grows.. then you can think about going up or down... but get comfortable in your body first.

Suzuks has it right worry about your body fat precentage. not your overall weight. If you have a low bodyfat % say 3-5% and weight 300lbs dude your a walking muscle.
