    What is your ideal weight for you? How does that compare to what a BMI ideal suggests? Do you agree with the BMI ideal?

    I'm about 5"8 and my ideal weight tends to be about 9 and half stone, I fluctuate between 9 and 10 stone usually but with stress eating I'm currently about 10. I'd like to tone up a bit but I know I'm still within the ideal of BMI.I think the ideal according to BMI os higher than mine.

    I'm 177 cms and weigh 70 kilos (5'9" and about 11 stone?)

    I think my ideal weight would be about 74 kilos, if that extra 4 kilos were chiefly muscle, this based on footballers my height.

    I'm five four and my ideal weight is seven and a half stone. I think that's classed as slightly underweight but I eat at least 2000 calories a day. I find I lose weight really easily.

    I don't know how much I need to lose because I don't like to get involved with the numbers, but I know it's a lot. It's just so difficult to lose a large amount. A lot of people just don't seem to understand how difficult it can be, especially when things like health and medication play a part

    I'm 5 foot 3 and I weigh about 9 stone 10 pounds, last time I checked and I'm anywhere from a size 10 to 14 depending on the brand. I lost nearly two stone last year due to my health and gained most of it back. Part of me is happy to be healthier again but I'm looking to get down to 8 and a half stone by July for my wedding but I doubt I will tbh. I'm motivated but not that motivated :laugh:

    My partner is doing well with his weight loss though. He's lost 2 stone in around six months :yep: He's doing that for his health though, not for the wedding.

    I've put on a pound since I last commented my weight on here. :teehee:
    My BMI is 23.6, and apparently the 'optimum' BMI is 22, so, I'd have to be like 55 kg, meh, too much work. :P

    I'm like 159 cm, and 59 kg, for the record.

    I'm 5'5.5, and I weigh 60kg, with a BMI of 21.6. I would like to lose a little more weight, but I am focusing on toning up right now. Which is working, as I actually have strength in my arms now :laugh:

    That's some weird micromanagement you're doing there A pound is like half a kilo, basically nothing.

    Yeah, it can be really difficult. I actually put on 4 stone since April due to medication and a thyroid problem. I still haven't got things sorted so am still gaining despite doing a fair amount of exercise. Makes me feel so crap about myself especially when you then come online and see people assuming that you're overweight because you're lazy and can't control yourself. :sad:

    A fast metaboliam is both a gift and a curse. You'll never get very fat though so that's good.

    I'm 88kg, probably should be 85kg. I'm the reason BMI isn't a full picture
    I'm 5'10 or so

    I'd be very surprised if you're actually eating 2000 calories consistently and being underweight at the same time tbh

    I do. Part of ehlers danlos, which I have, is that people tend to be thin.
