5' 3/4" tall. I gained 40 pounds when on Lexapro (antidepressant) after my divorce. I was 112 lbs. but was too skinny, so now My goal weight is 130lbs. I like having curves. Its been a struggle, (at 45yrs old) losing weight but I will continue on my journey to get back in shape

Good Luck

I am 5'2" and currently weigh 128. I would like to get down to 120. Not sure what my BMI says about me, but I really don't care about that. I just want to feel and look a little better(-:

5 foot with GW 110-115 and hopefully most of my "assets" still in place :)

Currently, I'm too afraid to weigh myself after the holidays but I'm guessing I'm around 120-ish after maintaining 115 for almost a year. Have some serious work to do before April-May!

Good Luck everyone!

I am five feet tall and they say i am suppose to be 110 lbs. Right now I am 238. I just cant imagine being that small. i dont think I have ever been that small. I think I would be happy at 140-150.


I am 5'1 and I am comfortable around 140, too. I'm currently at 195. At my best weight, I have always been around 130-145. I have always had an athletic figure (except for now, obviously!) I think it really depends on your stature. I would look very odd around 100 lbs. When I weighed 130 people said I looked anorexic because I have a medium build. Find what makes you happy and makes you feel comfortable.

I'm 5'0" and I started at 123, I'm currently 110.8 and I'm going to 105. I want to be small but muscualr so once I reach my goal weight I'm going to up my weight lifting, and if that means I gain 5 pounds back I'll be happy knowing it's muscles!

I am 4'10. CW is 128. GW = 110. I have gotten down to 107 before and my body just wouldn't go any further. Plus, I haven't been lower than that since I was 20....I am now 30. I realistically know my body is changing.

I'm 5'3 and shooting for a goal weight of 145 with an ultimate goal weight of 135-140 with lean muscle. Chart says I should weigh between 111(sm frame) to 147 (lg frame).

Maybe 120 but I am going more off how I look than how much I weigh :)
February 15, 2013 10:33 PM

Currently 133. Goal weight 95 - 100.

im 5'1" ( on a good day ) and the bmi charts say im morbidly obese and yes i am overweight but not morbidly so those bmi charts dont take everything into consideration for example i probably have 40 lbs or more of boobs ( im a 36 DD) my goal weight is 140 range
February 16, 2013 6:11 AM
I am 5 foot and 3/4 of an inch (so close to 5'1 lol!)

SW: 172
CW: 151
GW: 115
UGW: 110

As of right now, I'm aiming for 115-110, because I'm not sure if I'll feel I've gotten too tiny when I get within/below that range.

I'm 5'0". Here are my stats:

SW: 143
CW: 127
GW: 118-120

I have a hourglass shape smile and cannot image myself lighter than 118. In my opinion, one's ideal weight should be agreed upon between themselves and their physician. The ultimate goal should be set on what is healthy and not what is set by the media.

I am 5' 1/2" 57 years old and my goal weight is 95 lb, I'm able to keep it there most of the time through a good diet and lots of exercise (cardio, strength training,Taekwondo and lots of outdoor work on my property). Yes my boobs are small but they always have been. My husband says I am pure muscle.
February 16, 2013 6:25 AM
5' 2" goal weight 135
February 16, 2013 6:55 AM
I am 5'2", and I weigh 180 pounds. For my height, I should be between 115-135, and I would like to be in the 120s. Just breaking that 135 mark would make me so happy!

This is an interesting discussion. I think that this is very individual. I have set my goal weight at 125 pounds. I am 48 years old and I don't want to look haggard and saggy. I seem to have a lot more muscle than some of my friends, because at 140 (My current weight), I already look thinner than them. So I guess I will see how it goes. I plan to eat healthy and exercise. If my body goes lower than 125 while doing this... I will celebrate... if it does not.. I will still celebrate because I have made such a great lifestyle change and 125 is nothing to sneeze at!

This is completely true. I am 4'10", currently 123 and have weighed that for a few months now. My goal was about 118 or so (I'm 52, in menopause, and have no delusions about being 110#) BUT I have removed my ticker and reduced the frquency with which I weigh myself (Yay!) because:
*I eat slightly less than I burn
*I lift heavy weights mixed with some cardio
*even though the scale does not change I have lost inches and continued to go down even a full pants size.
*I see muscle definition and have strentgth and stamina, and feel great.
When I was just eating the prescribed 1200 cal. I was miserable. This isn about sustainable life changes. Can I sustain a size 4? No way, I like to eat too much, and I can't love my family the way I want to if I'm hungry/grumpy all the time! Everyone is different so there will be just as many different answers. I'll be happy even if my body weight doesn't agree with the "charts".
February 16, 2013 7:28 AM
I'm even a little shorter at 4 feet 11 and a third inches, the charts say I should be somewhere between 108 and 114. Right now I'm shooting for 115.

I'm between 5' and 5'1". I weigh 122.5 right now. I'm thinking between 108-112? I can weigh between 98-131 to be "healthy." I haven't been below 116 in my adult life, so pushing too much lower than that will be a challenge on my body as is.
February 16, 2013 7:32 AM
Oh and some of the charts make a distinction if you're small medium or large bones, they say look at your wrist size to tell. I have tiny wrists but have seen tinier so I'm somewhere small to medium boned which makes my goal weight lower than someone who's my same hight but has larger bones.

I'm shooting for 115 which I was that weight at one time long ago and I realize now how lean that was, although I would have said I was "chubby" at the time. I have gotten down as low as 122 recently which felt *very* lean. Currently maintaining at 127, winter is always my most challenging time with weight gain.
