    I'm very close to 5'0" and currently weigh around 106 lbs. My goal is to go down to 105 - 103 lbs and maintain at that weight. I'm not too active, but I am participating in a physical education class which involves some cardio during the week.

    The BMI chart puts our healthy weight between 105 lbs and 140 lbs. That is quite a range. Obviously both of those are on extreme ends of that. 105 being the lowest end of the healthy weight range and 140 being the highest in that range. Which to me means that venturing into either of those means heading toward an unhealthy weight. My own opinion is that 120 lbs-135 lbs is healthiest. I do not claim to be a medical doctor or any such expert. Of course. To me this seems like a good medium.

    It's a good medium for people with average (medium) frame. The reason there's a range of "healthy" is that not everyone has the same size frame. Some people are healthiest at the low end of the range. Some people are healthiest in the middle. Some people are healthiest at the high end of the range. (And sometimes, those people gain muscle and wind up perfectly healthy in the low end of the "overweight" range. But that's another issue entirely.)

    Do you weigh your food? Do you log your drinks (except water, black tea, black coffee and diet soda)? The most probable solution is that you're consuming more calories than you think.

    Yep. I am aware. That is why I said , " To me this seems like a good medium. " I know I did not leave a 6" deep mass of fine print explaining all of the obvious varieties of body types, frames, muscle mass etc.... But most people seem to understand nonetheless.

    Or you include two tiny little words - instead of "is healthiest", you say "is healthiest for me".

    I am not required to add a mile of fine print for the intent to be understood by most people. Hence the words, "Which to ME means venturing into an unhealthy range." There is a healthy range, and that range may not be perceived the same by everyone. We all came in to give our take on the post. My comment stands. Also, Did you seriously come in here to try and split hairs on the way I worded my post? I suggest you find something else to do. The world does not have to tip-toe around worrying that some exceptional person will take offense because extreme, and tedious care was not exercised in pain painstakingly choosing each and every single word. If you don't like my comment, that's okay. If it does not apply to you that is okay too. I hope you don't let it keep you up at night. Now if you don't mind I am sure the original poster would like to keep her thread relevant. If you need to nit pick, take it outside.

    I'm 5'3. I feel like I look and feel best 135-145. I have a medium frame and I like being soft and curvy. I haven't been in the 120's since before having kids and I was thinner than my liking.

    I'm 5'3 (19yrs) and my goal is 50kg (110). I've already lost about 11kg (I guess that's about 24 pounds?) during last two years by going vegan and the weight loss stopped some time ago since I was eating a lot of junk food... now I just wanna lose last 15 pounds before september and build my body a little since I don't exercise at all

    I'm 5'2" and currently 124 lbs I am working on lowering my body fat percentage. I have been at 115 and loved that weight, but wouldnt mind if my weight was higher due to increased muscle.

    I'm 36, 5'3", and 120lbs. This is my ideal weight. Any lower and I don't think I could properly sustain it as I'd get fewer calories per day to eat. ;)

    I'm 5'3 and 128lb, looking to get down to 126lb. These last couple of pounds are evil though, they just won't leave me! ;) I've been down as low as 110lb when I was about 18, but have no desire to get back there really as I'd rather be able to maintain on a higher number of calories

    I'm 5ft 2.5 and currently 113lbs, which tbh still doesn't look great on my frame. Looked my best at 105 so aiming for that. Just started 5:2 diet as I'm finding the small deficits so easy to undo with a couple of bad days at the weekend! (I enjoy my craft beer sadly!).
