    You sound like one of those guys who likes skinny girls :p: so you reckon 9 and a half stone, or 9?
    Nah athletic is the way forward haha.
    If you work out and say get a good mid-rift going etc you'd probably look great at 9 and a half, but possible 9 depending on your build.
    Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

    I think Im going to make my aim 9, but then if i cant get below 9 and a half i dont think its that major. Sometimes you have a weight that you tend to stay at...thanks for your opinion

    Whatever Adonis comes back with, you need to ignore it.

    Also, 5'8" and 10 stone is perfectly fine

    LOL

    I was gonna say 'that's a fine weight'

    but she will ignore that now and diet down x

    That is fine.

    I am 5'4 and 9 stone and I currently look a bit too skinny even though 8.5 stone is supposedly the recommended weight for my height. As long as you're comfortable with it and you're healthy, weight doesn't matter much.
    Really? Because I'm 5'7'' and 9 stone... And I could do with losing a few pounds.

    Do you think I need to lose weight? Is this too heavy for my height?
    If you are a guy you are fine as i am your height but only weigh half a stone less. If your a girl it's still ok.

    It's just my build, I think! I have quite a curvy figure naturally and atm I'm just a little too skinny in some places. :dontknow: Stupid work. :tongue:

    I'm 5ft8 and 10 1/2 stone and it's perfect weight-wise for me, though I still look skinny so it depends on your build as I have friends who weigh less than me but look bigger - 10 stone is fine though.

    I bet you were

    Though, I doubt she'd diet down due to the majority of answers she got anyway.

    Think its dependant on your build/race/BMI amongst other things, to me 5' 8 and 10 stone sounds slim, i weigh about the same and im a good deal shorter, yet have never been overweight (if we are discounting the dreaded puppy fat stages when we were little) and wear a size 10, so i'd say stop stressing!! you sound healthy and not over weight to me.

    I would like to think it's fine seeing as I'm an inch or two shorter and a few pounds lighter.

    This must make your BMI somewhere around 20? can't be bothered to work it out but my BMI is 21 and i'm that weight-ish and 5'7". This is ideal. Being 9 stone would probably make you underwight...but don't hold me to that, I'm no mathematician. Also, sidenote on my figure: i have a large bust which means unless I'm wearing something figure-hugging (which is rare) I look pretty big; sad times.

    No. You're overweight. Quite a bit overweight, actually. You should be about 8 stone.

    Gawd... don't obsess over weight. It's inaccurate for measuring size, fat percentage, what looks good on you - muscle and bone mass are different in different people. Ask your friends confidentially, tell them to be brutally honest. Don't ask randoms on the internet.

    i dont understand how some people are the same height/weight but bigger than others apparently the same height/weight. surely build wont make that much difference?
    im 5ft 11 and weigh about 9st 7, which is size 8/10, so i cant work out what size you would be?

    this majorly confuses me for example, im taller than you by about 3 inches, and weigh about a stone less, and i dont think i look 'skinny', yes im slim but not skinny, so how can you sometimes look skinny when you are shorter and weigh more than me?
    im not criticizing at all or doubting how slim you are, just majorly confused hehe

    Nothing too wrong with having some extra flab. You're not obese, if that's what you're worried about.
