I said I didn't want to be a goal weight, I wanted to be a goal size. I wanted to be a size 8. Right now I'm at a size 6 though and its feeling pretty good.

A "healthy" weight for my height is supposed to be anywhere between 100 and 135 lbs. So i picked a number in the middle-ish: 120 lbs. However, I haven't been this weight since university (almost 25 years ago) so I may have to update this goal later. I'll play it by ear...

The height/weight charts say I should weigh 118-149 pounds, so I chose 140, at the top end of the range, because 118 sounds bone-rack unrealistically thin for me.

I have said since the beginning 175 or size 15 junior I think I would look G O O D there, but truly 190 and under, probably teetering between overweight and obese, mfft men my age have given up picking up woman except with their silver tongues, they tend to have lost arm and upper body strength in the first place. Lower bodies strength usually still there, main problem is their minds write checks their bodies have an insufficent credit line to utilize. They may still have "will" but the ole body just "won't"
My rotten 50-51 year old PCP keeps chanting Morbid Obesity,in a tone between Boris Karloff and Vincent Price, tried Freddy Kreuger one day but his vocal cords just don't have the chops!

I've been at goal for years. I was happy to get to the overweight BMI range. I just happened to get to a healthy BMI range. You may not have control of when your weight loss stops. Maintain a BMI at whatever weight you feel healthy.

I weigh in the 130's BMI 23 to 22 - I wear a size four jeans and a medium top.

I am not under weight or anorexic. Most people don't know what a healthy BMI looks like. I don't look skeletal. I have built muscle and I feel like a bad @ss grandmother. I have loose skin, I can’t afford surgery and I'm ok with it.

I'm a tall guy from a family of broad shoulders etc I'm currently 318lbs about 7 years ago I got to 200lbs and that was alright but I think my Perfect goal would be 185lbs then tone up maybe add some muscles up to 192 :) that's my long term goal and good to work for! I think any lower than 180s for me would be bad!

We are the same height.

I weigh 190-191 right now. I’m in a size 12 jean and pant and a size large, sometimes even medium top. I have a pear type shape.

I am hoping for 185-180 but if it doesn’t happen I’m ok with that.

I know the statements that a lower BMI Looks "bad” “bone rack thin" "unhealthy” " a twig" Is your perspective of what looks healthy for your body. Just not helping my body issues today. lol

Sorry about that, But yes we both are speaking on our bodies personally. I have been big since middle school. So when i imagine MYSELF at 118 all i can see is massive amounts of skin and little frame. Now this is me and I don't judge anyone else. But i do apologize if i did put some shame out there.

Your suggested healthy weight range 135 - 182Lbs

that's what BMI says which is so wrong I know for a fact I can't go below 180lbs but BMI scale that's right on the edge of the healthy range!!
