    I'm a 5'10 girl, 20 years old and I weigh about 12 stone (78kg+). I used to be really skinny and underweight about 2 years ago (I was 55kg - 125lbs). I look slimmer without clothes on. What's the ideal weight for a girl of my height?

    That weight looks pretty ideal to me. It's best that any advice you get wrt your weight doesn't cause behaviours related to anorexia or bulimia. So your diet can stay the same, and if you are a gym member, work towards fitness goals rather than aesthetic goals.

    There are loads of weight charts on sites like NHS that will tell you a good weight based on BMI and even some where you type in your details and it tells you where you fall. On the whole BMI is a good indicator as long as you don't have loads of muscle (then you'll usually come out as closer to overweight than you should cos of the weight of the muscle).

    Thats a link to the nhs bmi indicator.
    Using the details you gave here you would be the higher end of a healthy weight (24.1). So if you wanted you could work on toning yourself out or loosing that little bit of belly or something, but you don't need to worry about your weight.
    You could go down to a weight of just over 9st or up to just under 13 and still be a healthy weight for your height.

    Hope that helps. Within that range of a health weight what matters most is that you are happy, active and eating a well balanced diet with all the nutrition you need. Remember you can be a healthy weight but still an unhealthy person so weight isn't all that matters
