If you're fat, lose weight. If you're not then dont.
Can we all use this formula next time someone decides to make a 'am i fat' thread & not show any pics. How are we supposed to know if you should lose weight off these incredibly vague details? It'll suit some people & not others so stating your height & weight is just pointless.

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

I think that's fine
Rihanna is 5'8" and I remember reading in some magazine that she weights 10 stone (I remembered because I'm 5'8" too, not because I a Rihanna stalker or anything)

in boxing terms, you'd be in the light welterweight/welterwight division and most people are between 5'6-5'9.

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

Look, 10 stone sounds a bit too heavy, for your height 8.5 - 9.5 would make you look and feel better.

im 5'8" and 9 and half stone - ive just come from the hospital (had an operation) and was told this is the average healthy weight for the height
however i would prefer to be 7 and a half stone again the weight i was before my son when i was an inch shorter
ill also add it depends on other factors
i was 7 and a half as i had virtually no body fat prior to pregnancy due to being a vegetarian all my life so i was very slim but healthy
if your athletic you will be heavier, i have a friend who is tiny but i wouldnt be suprised if she weighs the same as me because she has abs to die for due to being a fitness instructor
my other best friend is an inch taller than me an at her smallest was only half a stone heavier than me but looked much bigger due to carrying her weight in her upper body instead of lower body (shes a lollypop shape im a pear shape)Last edited by rattusratus; 08-12-2012 at 23:59.

I'm 5"11 and 12 1/2 stone. I'd kill to be you're weight! It's perfect for your height. You should be between 91/2-11 for that height
