    Hi!
    I was wondering how much i should actually weigh for my height and age?
    at the momment i'm 13 stone which is quite bad,and i'd like to be 8 stone or should i actually be trying to weigh less than that...i tried going into the future and put that as my BMI! and it came up with obese so i tried another and it said that it was underweight? what is a healthy weight for my age?:)

    Hello again :)

    But, I believe it's really important that you focus on making changes to your way of eating and lifestyle, rather than focusing on a number on the scale. Change the other bits and the weight will go down anyway, but don't get fixated on the scales

    It's best not to get too obsessed about a number on a scale because it can lead to an eating disorder, why not try to aim for a specific outfit? A dress, pair of jeans perhaps?
