I agree that for your height the goal weight seems pretty low. I am 5'4" and my goal weight is 145, but I am aiming for the higher end of the normal range for my height, and that number may change. I'll worry about that when I get there. I wonder where your doctor got the goal weight. But at this point I wouldn't worry about it too much, it's just a number to shoot for, and when you start getting closer to it your body will let you know where it is comfortable. As long as you are not going to be devastated if you end up at, say, 140 instead of 115. If you are like me, anything with a 1 in front of it looks pretty good.
