If you are 5'9 or taller- what weight did you find comfortable?.. I am not trying to lose so much weight that I look like I need a sandwich.

hahahah...love this..need a sandwich!! bahahah. Well.. I am exactly 5'9. When I weighed 155 that was perfect for me, that put me in a size 10 and I looked **** hot!! that being said, I looked and felt comfortable at 160 ish too.....I am now 180...and I am looking to lose 25 ish pounds, but may even stop at 20 lbs as I have a lot more muscle than I used too! Everyone so different, some girls at 5;9 would feel fat at 160, 165...good luck on your journey regardless! :)

Funny- my good friend keeps telling me to 'have a snack'. I'm 5' 10' and 146. 1 lb to go! I'm certainly not too thin - my goal now is toning. smile:

I am 5'10''

I got to approx 168lb last time and prob needed to lose another 10lbs or so and tone up a little more.

My aim will be about 160 and I will take it from there

5'9" am aiming for under 150, 145 would be great, but don't think lower would work for me (or be possible!)

hiya
i am 5-9 and my goal weight is 153.5. I am not there yet so do not know if I am going to have to adjust it, but I am only 6 pounds off and it still seems ideal for me.

I am 6'1" and currently 235lbs but I think 198lbs is comfortable for me. I know what you mean about not wanting to look like you need a sandwich lol too funny!

I feel like I post this a lot but, oh well. Currently at 145 and happy, would like to get to 140 to be happier.

I'm 5'10 and hoping to get back to 165-170. I was a size 10-12 and felt comfortable in my clothes.

i'm 5'11. I believe my ultimate goal will be 160. That is what I weigh now, however, I plan on losing about 5-10 more pounds of fat and then gaining muscle back to about 160.

hey :)

I'm 5 feet and 10.5 inches. my doctor told me he would like to see me at 150. I'm aiming for 170-ish and the doc can take it or leave it- it's better then 340!
March 21, 2012 5:18 AM
I am aiming for 150, I don't remember what I look like there but I know when I was a lot lower (118)I did look like I needed some turkey, dressing and a pie, a sandwich wasn't going to cut it!

As a 5'8" tall male I look up to you ladies trying to be healthy. Literally! :)
March 21, 2012 5:20 AM
I'm 5'9" and as of this morning was 174.6. My ultimate goal is 150 but right now I'm looking to get to 160. When I graduated HS I weighed 130 and definitely looked like I needed a sandwich or 6!!

I'm 5'9", and before I started gaining weight, I was 165 pounds. I was very active- I felt and looked good.
A lot of people use their BMI to decide what a healthy weight for them is (also, some people don't agree with that- to each their own). It's only one way of measuring, but it's a good way to get an idea to start.

I am 5ft 11.5 inches...ok maybe 6ft tall and I just started P90X and the weight that I am most comfortable lifting is 10lb dumbbells..it really should be 8lbs but I could not find any 8 lbs at the time of purchase. However, do what feels comfortable for you. If you're trying to get lean, go light with more reps/sets..15-20 reps and 3 sets of each. I hope it helps..

Have a fabulous day!
