    ideal weight for what? a model? a healthy average person?
    use bmi
    weight =/= fat

    Type "ideal height to weight ratio" into google and I'm sure you'll find plenty of tables for you to look at. Personally I think generally a person is too skinny when thier bones are sticking out and too fat when they have lots of visible flabs around the waist ect

    5ft4-ish with a BMI of around 18-19 is perfect.

    That's a fairly low BMI. I'm 5ft4 with a BMI of 21, which seems to be just about right. 18-19 would be verging on skinny, although I suppose it depends on what you prefer to be physically. EDIT: I just looked on the chart, and 18 at 5''4 is classed as underweight. Make of that what you will.

    Between 17.5 and 21 are normal BMI's. 18-19 is normal for a 5ftsomething girl.

    You're 21, which is normal. I've got a BMI of 19 and i'm in no way 'skinny'. I'm normal

    I'm 5'7, usually 9 stone, I want to stay that way, I used to be 9 12 and hated it. Think I have some dodgy scales though, as they said I was 7st 6pounds the other day - you can't lose, what 1st 6 in a couple of days can you?

    In that case I'm clearly not underweight I weigh about 9 stone. If i were any bigger i'd look weird, since i'm so short. All depends on height at the end of the day ^^

    Your ideal bodyweight will be 124.378 lbs. There. Happy? And if you lose or gain a pound, I will have you killed. It is important to be ideal.

    Yeah, but it's verging on overweight. I was making a rough estimation to help out the OP, I wasn't trying to be 100% accurate.

    That was unnecessary - in case it was anon, it wasn't me! I don't really care a great deal about this. As long as people are healthy, c'est la vie.

    Stop trying to sound so superior about it!! I've had a look and I've seen quite a few saying anything over 18 is healthy, I think it must be an issue that experts can't seem to agree on.
