    I wouldnt of thought so.

    Im 5'10 and im hoping to get down to 10 stone, which will give me a bmi of 20. The chemist said i could do that target but not any lower.
    I think if your target is at a good healthy bmi range then what ever your target is should be accepted

    I think your goal weight should be exactly that...yours. Theres not point doing this diet if at the end of it your not happy. So how as its not too low i cant see the harm in a little less if thats what you want and i doubt they'll stop you when you get to 11st, they might advise you to stop but at the end of the day its your choice. So long as your happy and healthy at the end.

    As long as your BMI isnt below 20 the LT guidelines say thats acceptable!
    For 5ft 7 and 11 stone your bmi would be 24.12 which personally i think it a little too close to 25 ..i would not be happy there! Discuss it with the head pharamcist, explain to the you dont want to be un healthy but would prefer a lower healthy bmi even at 10s 5 your bmi would be 22.5 you could go as low as 10st and still be very healthy at a 21 bmi?!?!? once disscussed make sure they write your target on your weight sheet they hold! if not i would switch chemists... you just need to take your weigh in card..explain to them where you would like your target weight to be from the out then there is no complications in the future xxx Good luck

    I'm 5'5" and my target is 9 stone 12lb which will give me a BMI of about 23.1. I've told my chemist and she is fine with it but if I change my mind nearer the time I shall tell her. I haven't been that weight since I was at Uni so have no idea whether it will suit me or not.

    Keep going until you are happy with your body and as long as it is in the 19-25 healthy bmi range then they will have to lump it!

    Good luck.

    See this is where my pharmacy show how useless they are...

    At my initial consultation she asked me how low I wanted to go and as I was a bit unsure of how she'd take it if I said 'as low as I can' I just mumbled a bit and she said 'well it's up to you, you can go as low as you want.' WTF? I know it's probably not what she meant but she made it sound like I can continue on LT 'til I had a BMI of 10!! lol

    Haven't discussed my target with them as I know I'll get shouted at but I'll go as low as they'll let me and then do the rest one way or another... Not coming off TFR until I'm at my ultimate goal!!
