    Not really my subject but depends on your height. Google for a body mass indicator.

    Depends on your height, and build. BMI's a better measure than weight...

    And how you look/your general fitness is a better indicator than BMI.

    BF % is the best indicator.

    There are a lot of fairly accurate ones. You measure certain places and it spits out the answer.

    Well I'm 5'5 and I read a while back for that height you should be around 9- 9.5 stone, but obviously it depends on muscle/ body shape etc.

    I'm 5'5 and I wouldn't like to weigh that much. It might suit people who are the same height but have a different body shape but I would feel fat at that weight.

    I think your weight should also depend on your body shape as some people are naturally slimmer than others.

    I'm a bit under 9 and a half but only a size 10- and I'd be smaller if it wasn't for my chest :p: I do a lot of gymnastics and stuff too though, so a bit of that's muscle weight too.
