How to determine Target Weight

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

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 :)

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
