    Hello everyone, quick question. My height of 5ft 6in has a standard of 155 pounds on the appointee book. Will there be a problem if I'm over it by 5 pounds when I get to I-day? I weigh 160 pounds.
    Thanks.

    There is a current thread about this on USNA forum with the same question. You can check that out but it seems responses are that they are looking for signs of significant weight change compared to current info they have.
    Doubtful you would be sent home.

    They're not going to kick you out for weighing 5 pounds more. Period.

    So, cut out dessert and carbs for a two weeks. If you're male, that should put you ten pounds less.
