Please be honest. I'm just curious!

First ask yourself, do you think you're at a healthy body weight?

Then, use any or all of the following websites to calculate your ideal body weight. The neighbours vary slightly but are generally all in the same range.

Me: 16/5'8"/140 lbs. My ideal body weight is about 130-160 pounds.

30 years old, 188cm, 80kg. I'd like to lose a little, but it's more about being in better condition and not overall weight.

I'm a meagre 21, 178cm and I weigh 86kg. When I'm training at my hardest (summer), I get up to about 93kg. I want to someday be 100kg so I can tell my friends I weigh 0.1 tonnes. :cool:

I'm in my 20s, roughly 6-foot, 147 pounds.

Close to what I am, 19 yrs old, 6'2", 148 lbs. I am under wieght. Fo sho. Alot of times I don't eat, not cuz I'm anorexic, just cuz I'm too lazy to eat or I just forget. I'm trying to eat alot more and got some 20 lb dumbells to work with. I'm gettin there. But it takes time.... :cool:

Abstract
Jul 21, 2006, 04:57 AM
I'm 26, 176 cm (5'10"), and 72 kg. The Dietician site says since i have a smaller frame, i should weigh in the lower half of my healthy weight range, or between 65-72 kg.

Since I weigh 72 kg, I should be happy, but I was much happier when i weighed 76 kg. I think I looked better, and I didn't feel more fat, so it seemed ok.

29, 6' 3" and 220 pounds.

According to that first site, I'm overweight on the ideal body weight scale (176-216) and "overfat" on the BMI.

Considering that I run/walk with my dogs about 10 miles per week, lift weights, play ultimate frisbee about 1-2 times per week and golf occasionally on the weekends... :rolleyes:

Scales like these often don't take enough factors in, the first site even stated that the IBW scale didn't take in to account whether you were an athlete or not... I think some people get a little too pre-occupied with "numbers" that sometimes don't mean all that much in the grand scheme of things.

Ditto except for "40" instead of "late 20's", and I'm not planning on losing height.

I'll also plan on reverting to my early 20s, which I'll accomplish by using the orbital period of something other than the Earth as my reference for "year".

Well I'm 19, short (around 172cm) and pretty stocky at 76kg. Up until about 2 years ago I was overweight at around 85-90kgs. Then I went on a health kick - ate a lot better and actually did lots of exercise. Got down to about 68kg which I was happy with. Then over the last few moths I've stopped going to the gym which explains the increase. :o I'm definitely going to get back into the whole exercise thing soon, it just makes you feel so much better!

30 and feeling it, 6'2 or 188cm depending on what you prefer, and a shapely 161lbs, weighed this very morning in fact.

I did one of the 'ideal weight' links and was shocked to see I was massively overweight. Then I realised I'd put myself in as 2'2" and felt heartily relieved. as it stands, I'm a little underweight but I'm happy.

Health is also about more than just weight (over or under). All those annoying things like what you eat and what you do. Such a PITA. (I cycle a lot, but have a crappy lunch, and should lift weights more than I currently do)

I never seem to put on or lose weight, even when I try. I'm just always the same mass, have been for a very long time.

im 20yrs old, 6'2" , and 270lbs.

now, i know that sounds really bad, but you have to take into account that i go to the gym 4 times a week, and a lot of that is muscle, im no body builder, and im not ripped or anything, but since i started going to the gym i lost a lot of weight, then gained it back in muscle-mass. my trainer says that if i was my "ideal" weight of 185, that it would just be super unhealthy for me. however, i wouldn't mind if i could get down to say 220-240. I just have a ridiculously slow metabolism i guess which makes it exceedingly difficult.

Hey,

I'm 30.5 yrs(edit:typo) old, 6'4 and 210lbs, here's the kicker-I have 9% Body fat:D I play rugby, Football (Canadian/American football), race Downhill MountainBiking, ride Motorcross, Snowmobile, Sailing and Freestyle skiing! So needless to say I'm really in shape right now and my legs are like horses. I can do 58 reps of 450lbs on the Leg Press--I go to the YMCA(gym) 3x a week and every other week I get tested by a trainer.

Everyone should go outside and embrace nature! The graphics are life-like hahaha! But seriously, I find biking to be so relaxing and it's great for people who don't like to run as it doesn't hurt your knees. I also get in shape by lifting my Powermac each morning haha j/k.

30, 5'8" (173cm) 55kg (122pounds) which makes me probably the smallest adult male here.

All the charts say I'm underweight, but doctors always say I'm fine. For some reason I look bigger than my actual weight. I get almost no exercise at the moment apart from looking after my baby daughter.

Don't own a car, walk to the tube most days. Used to ride a lot till it almost destroyed my knees. (Don't believe the other posters above when they say bicycles are easy on the knees.)

Most of the online stuff is pretty far off because they ignore things like body frame size (I have a large frame) and tell people like me that I'm overweight (when I'm not).

Back when I was in my early 20s working out 5-8 hours a day I was at 190 lb. and at just under 10% body fat... which was about the same size as most of the people I was racing at the time (I was a 110 meter hurdler and was the same size as most sprinters). Most the people I knew were between 8% and 13% body fat.

Wow. A lot of tall, skinny, underweight people on MR.

It's all part of the well groomed, snotty, creative/intellectual mac user image :D

OK, I know I'm way underweight, but I'm healthy, and don't really care about my weight, although I wouldn't mind putting on 5-10 kg.

Height: 189 cm
Weight: 57 kg
Age: 19

Height: 168 cm
Weight: 52 kg
Age: 19

You are only 5 kg heavier but way way taller. I'm a girl but now I feel so fat! ;)

22, 5' 10", 164lbs.

I drastically changed my diet as of late. Vegetables, Fruits, Tofu, and other soy products(in moderation of course because it can raise estrogen levels) and I cook it all.

I also commute by bike about 6-10 miles per day. My current bike is very slow though it is a mountain bike, so I will be getting a road bike pretty soon so I can move faster.

Anyhow, I am in the appropiate range.

Wow, most "Body weight" quiz thingies tell me that I should weight about 20 pounds less. If I weighed 20lb less I'd probably look anorexic. I'm 22, male, 6'4" and weigh 200lb.

I think I am at a very healthy body weight.

5'10"..160lbs, 21 years old.

I've seen some indexes that show me overweight (some even conclude that a person of Tom Cruises height and weight is overweight).

Nearly any height:weight ratio can be healthy, it just depends on body fat %.

I can gain 50 pounds and still be healthy if it is mostly muscle.

6'4" and at 177 pound of a combo of fat and muscle. Trying to lose the fat though by exercising.
By the way I am 17.

When I was 250 (at 6'4") I was mostly muscle. I can't imagine what it would have taken to get me down to 177

I'm 21, 6 foot and around eleven stone!

I'm toned, but don't really work out other than my normal work walk - I really should go to the gym more but they're all miles away. :(

i have been nearly 20 pounds over my ideal body weight for years

male, 5'7" and 170-ish pounds and i wish us americans would switch over to metric already because i have a hard time imagining people in centimeters :)

i hope it does not have bad consequences down the line, and i am like some of those who can be slightly "obese" and still live into their 80s as dr. dean edell has mentioned...though being closer to an ideal body weight increases most peoples' chances for longevity

It's been a while since I measured myself. I know I'm very lightweight, but I'm short (very) and I have well toned muscle so I'm not that bad off...
