    Hi everyone
    I typed 'target weight' in the search bar but I didn't see what I wanted so I have started this thread.

    How do I find out what my target weight should be?

    I asked my consultant but he said this wasn't an issue yet...as I have a few stone to lose I got the feeling he was being kind to me...but the question remains.

    I have read stories of people (in the paper, TV etc) losing too much weight. (I wish!!)

    So, how to I find out my ideal weight?

    I look at SW as a new way of eating rather than a diet so I suppose my weight will become steady at some time but I'm just curious.

    I am a guy 5'8" tall.....and pleased to say my weight and waist is going in the right direction. Thanks to SW :D

    Hi
    Rather than typing target weight - type BMI and this will give you calculators to calculate your body mass index and weight target

    i just calculated what my weight should be to get a bmi of 25 (right top end of ideal) and went to the nearest "nice" number below that

    my weight when my bmi is 25 is 12 stone 9, so i picked 12 stone 7, because thats exactly 10 stone less than my start weight :)

    everyone is different- some people dont even make targets- or change them as they go along :)

    If you dont have a target or something to aim for then you can be whatever you want - if you want to change your life - set a target

    Thanks for all the replies. I googled BMI and the top end of my BMI is 24.9 which works out at 11.7 Stones.

    So now i have a target!

    Thanks again.:D
