    I am 5'4 and my current weight is 135. I'm on the lower end of a medium frame and would like to be about 115-120(and then start to build muscles, so I don't know what my actual end goal weight is). With my body composition I look pretty good at 120 but I would like to start building muscle and know that usually comes with at least a little bit of fat gain.

    I'm 5'4 and weight around 145.

    I personally think 115 is a bit much for someone your height. When I was 128 I was too skinny. You're life, do what you want.

    Definitely depends on build. On a personal note, I was 116 at high school grad and wasn't defined as "skinny" or "bones" to anyone.

    I'm 5'5" and 30 years old (don't tell anyone).

    GW subject to change to 120 if I can figure out what my lean body weight really is. It's either 100 or 110, depending on formula.

    These threads are always kinda sad for me .... The #s. And! It always shows that body composition is so different for everyone. Take 10 random 5'4 women @ "x" amount of pounds & they will look diff. I cannot imagine weighing 115. My body comp is such that I'd have to lose a limb. I have more than 115 lbs of fat free mass.

    I'm just about 5'6"

    SW: 172
    CW: 152
    GW: 145
    GW #2 : 135
    UGW: 125

    After getting sick and on steroids, I have been up to 180, but when I really started this, I was at 172.
    I hovered around 103-115 in high school, and I think that was far too little for my frame. I'd be happy to be down in the 130s though.

    GW: 135...?

    It's so interesting to see how many people's lowest rememberable healthy weights were in high school. Mine was definitely the same. I was maybe 126 when I was 11 and hadn't started puberty quite yet, and I came in at a juniors size 5 I believe. At the 150s playing competitive volleyball, I was a size 9-10 at that was at 14. Now I'm taller, have finished puberty, and have been wearing a size 12 for three years, even as my weight creeps up. I'm curious to see if I am truly larger boned, and whether or not my goal weight looks good for me. I really hope it does!

    You can do it! I went from not being able to jog for a minute (at 245), and could run a 5k after only losing 15 pounds! Your goal may be closer than you think!

    I LOVE seeing the incredible losses from everyone here. I can't even remember when I was anywhere close to my goal weight. I graduated high school around 160 probably; I was always a bigger girl with huge quads from riding. It makes me super excited to think of how fit I'll be when I shed more weight, because I'm definitely at my most fit (in a long time) as I've ever been.

    ETA - that was supposed to be to dbeaut!

    29 y.o. 5' 4.75"

    I have a beautiful 7 month old daughter.

    3 days before I delivered her I weighed 146 lbs, and that was after putting on a good amount of weight with the pregnancy.

    I spent about 1.5 years before trying to conceive lifting weights, eating at a surplus, and putting on weight so I wouldn't start my pregnancy underweight. I put on about 8 lbs in preparation for pregnancy. During pregnancy, I lost muscle (I lifted some, but not enough to maintain what I had) and gained fat, so my body composition is very different from what it was.

    I'm currently sitting at 119 lbs and still slowly losing. I've also picked my lifting back up. I guess my goal is to get to my prepregnancy measurements.

    So the goal is 34" - 24" - 34" With my current LBM that would probably be around 111 lbs, but since I'm back to lifting, I'm guessing I'll hit those measurements around 114 lbs.

    That was probably a little too in depth, but just throwing the weights out there doesn't really tell the whole story with body composition.
