For all intents, yes. There may be a little variation, but that's the basic math.

comment Is this muscle gain?
If you are going to use the terms, you should use them properly. Sarcoplasmic hypertrophy.

The first photo (From 09.2011) is linked from here: twicsy.com/i/qNzYP. Hardly the 10 years ago mentioned in the posting.

@EricKaufman - And, I don't know if you can see the deleted answer, but it links this article:huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/11/… Please note the picture in the huffington post article is the same as the second "2009" picture in the above article. I think this is a troll post as well.

comment Mom Losing Her Mobility Because of her Weight Gain
@EricKaufman - Where in there is any question related to fitness? There is "What can I do, what should I do, why is this so unfair to us?". Not to put too fine a point on it, but you have a habit of answering every question that comes along, on topic or not. You gave a good answer, but it is basically an extended version of "go see doctors".

comment Mom Losing Her Mobility Because of her Weight Gain
How does this get 4 upvotes? It is wildly off topic, and the only answer is that she needs to get to doctors, both medical and psychological. I absolutely sympathize with your situation, but all we can really tell you is that it's very dangerous to be that weight, and you need to get her to professional intervention, either voluntarily or otherwise.

comment Getting in shape after age 30+
Do you have a source for your claim that muscles are not well formed until 30 years old?

comment Is this muscle gain?
You can gain 2-3 lbs of pure muscle per month, not year. Also, this is highly individual, and will vary with the amount of time someone can spend training, attention to diet, etc.

comment Shoulder pain, around the cuff. Any help?
Unfortunately, there is no real way for us to diagnose pain over the internet, especially in a joint as loosely structured as the shoulder. Could be the SITS muscles, ligaments, nerve impingement, etc etc. Best thing is to see a decent ortho.

comment Are there exercises to help strengthen my little toe?
As a small aside, if you've ever stubbed a toe, there's a good likelihood that you've fractured it. And if you have been in martial arts for any length of time, it's also likely that you've had some bone/joint damage in the toes. It's almost inevitable after a while.

comment Compression Sleeves/Socks for Achilles Tendonitis
Kinesio tape is still somewhat controversial and unproven. It's certainly been a fad for a bit, but studies have failed to show help/improvement. But, if it works for you, great! :)

comment Beginner Runner. Cannot go any further
Slow down. You're likely running too fast. Other than that, there are a lot of other questions about building distance on here, such as: fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/2629/…

comment High metabolism problems
Erik's answer is correct. A 5 lb gain in 1-2 days is all food/water, and not permanent. (And vice versa). True fat or muscle gain of 5 lbs will take much longer.

True, it's still around, but it's rubbish. :p

comment What should my heart rate be while running / working out?
Voted to close as being too broad, as you ask four very broad questions in the same paragraph. The only way to truly tell your "maximum" heart rate is through a progressive stress test.

comment What should my heart rate be while running / working out?
I won't downvote it, but you should add that the "220-age" is one of the worst myths in exercise science.
