    There's no such thing as an ideal weight really, just a range within which it's considered to be healthy for you to be for your height. How tall are you?

    Well looking at the BMI chart, your healthy weight range is roughly between 7.5 stone and 10 stone, so 8st 12lbs would be about in the middle. But that doesn't necessary mean that's your "ideal" weight. If you're quite muscly, for instance, you'd naturally be heavier than someone the same height who has little muscle. It's really a matter of where you feel most comfortable, and if that's higher up the healthy band, that's absolutely fine - there's no cut and dried answer. xx

    My ideal weight is at least 11 stone. I've been it before and I felt happy at that weight. Another stone off that and I don't look well as my shoulders are quite broad etc..

    Ok thank you Tracy I think 9 stone would be good for me. I have about a stone to lose to get there. The hard work starts now. Just have to decide what plan to do. Low carb has worked very well for me in the past

    Depends on your height, doesn't it. Always felt I would feel best at 8 stone, or even 7 and a half because I'm so tiny!

    Nothing to do with over-reaching, I LIKE good curves and don't want to be a stick... But the weight is really uncomfortable when you're short.

    I think BMI is a load of bull according to that I'd need to lose another 8st and I'd look underweight

    I liked my 8 stone body at 5 foot 6. I'll get there again, just might take a year or two.

    I think it depends. I'm working toward a goal weight of 63kg (I'm 170cm tall), which gives me a BMI of 21.7. There is no point that I ever remember being that small (9st, 12lb). My mum lost weight and got to that weight and was teeny tiny! Size 6, and she's about 5-10cm shorter than me. For me, it's just a goal. I will see how I feel when I get there. If I feel I need to lose some more, I will (although my trainer who is a good 15cm shorter than me weighs 59kg and has an absolutely perfect physique. If I continue with the current level of training, which I plan to, I will look emaciated at even 63kg, never mind less).

    So yes, it's what a BMI calculator tells me is my ideal weight but it may not feel that way when I get there. It's just an arbitrary number at the moment so I have something to work towards. :-)

    My ideal weight according to my BMI is lower than the weight I have set myself as a target weight. I don't personally think it matters as long as you feel good and are healthy and happy. x

    My lowest weight was 11.8 and a lot of people thought I looked drawn. I'm currently 14.10 and want to get to 12.0. I'm 53 yrs old. I think that as you get older that you don't need to get to your BMI to look and feel better. My top healthy BMI is 10.7. I would look ill at that.

    My ideal weight for a healthy BMI is between 7st 13lb and 10st 11lb. Personally I don't think I could ever get down as low as 8 stone and I'm not sure I'd want to either.. don't think it would suit me. But my target weight is only 3lbs over the 'normal weight' category so I'm happy with that

    It definitely depends on how you feel about it, my aunt is a size 22, and that is her ideal - she's totally 100% happy and wont diet. For me, my ideal is 8st7lbs, because that's where I can see myself happiest, it might change when I get lower, I might decide 9 or 10 is better for me as I'm more toned this tine around, or want to go lower, it's you that matters, not BMI, not dress size or what other people think you should be.
