    It depends on your build, age, bmr and body fat percentage.

    Have a read of this link (that I picked up elsewhere on the site).

    http://www.bmi-calculator.net/body-fat-calculator/body-fat-chart.php

    It gives you a slightly more scientific way to calculate a healthy goal weight based on all of the above. If you have a play about with their calculators putting your own stats in you should be able to see whether the goal you want is actually realistic for you.

    Incidentally are you sure about those sizes? :confused: I am 5" shorter than you, weigh 10 stone 3 as of today (which is your CDC's goal for you) and am a size 10 bottom size 14 top (cos I have big boobs......:eek:)

    At the end of the day your goal should be when you feel comfortable with yourself, and never mind what the scales say. Even BMI is acknowledged to not be a particulary accurate way of judging health, it's just that so far nobody has invented a better one! :)
