    What is everyone target? Im aiming for eleven stone. Are people aiming for whats technically right for their height, a healthy BMI, or just where they think they'll be happy or comfy at? xxx

    Hmm, tough one.... I'm 5ft10 and big boned (and fat) so I know I'll never be "light", I'm just aiming for a BMI of less than 30 at the moment!! x

    I'm 5"6 and currently weigh 16.5st, i'm aiming for 10 stone. The lowest acceptable weight for my height is 8 12, but there is no way i could go to that as when i'm 11 st, i look thin, so i would look really ill if i went under 10. i remember 10 yrs ago i was 9st 7 and everyone said i looked skinny. Ha those were the days ha ha.

    Ohhhh here you go..

    Underweight = less than 18.5
    Ideal = 18.5 to 25
    Overweight = 25 to 30
    Obese = 30 to 40
    Very Obese = 40+

    Bear in mind that this gives you a rough idea but doesn't take muscle into account, therefore rugby players are almost all classed as obese, though their weight is all muscle and not fat x

    According to the NHS bmi calculator at 5 foot 5 a normal bmi (ie under 25) corresponds with a weight of approx 10st 9lb/10st 10lb or under. Your could go down to about 9 stone and still be in the healthy bmi range of 20-25

    This is the link to the nhs bmi calculator I use:

    Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator - NHS Direct

    Hope that helps Rainbow :)

    Thanks Ruthlet and Lou. Well I'm now in the obese category, rather than the very obese, which is what I was when I started this diet eleven weeks ago. So although Ive still got a way to go at least I've moved category's!!! xxx

    I want to get to 8t 4 as this will be a healthy bmi and I thnk I'll be comfortable with this weight. The lowest I can go is 7 stone 1 but think I would look like a skeleton. I weigh 11 stone 9 at the mo so still loads to go.

    I'm currently weighing in at 14 stones although its weigh in tonight (fingers crossed as have deviated from plan a bit this week!). Am 5ft 5 so am aiming for 10 stones 7 first and seeing how I feel. Would ideally like to get just under 10. Its hilarious though coz if I ever need to get weighed at hospital appointments the nurses always look at me and say 'you don't look like you weigh THAT much'...charming!
