Well done mate you did good, i was underweight i was 57 when i first had my medical and then i got to 59 and got stuck.

I had my re-medical today and before i got weighed i drank a litre of water and i was 60.4 when i got weighed; your pissing all day but it'll do you for your medical mate so yeah drink water as you are :) and loads before your medical. After your medical you have to get serious about gaining weight, my AFCO told me today that i have to be 63+ for the PRMC or WO will just say sickbay you dont weigh enough and instant fail. Just eat 5 smaller meals a day instead of 3 bigger; eat lean meat, brown bread,rice,pasta loads of carbs and protein. :):)
