Default Tall ladies - What's your goal weight/size?

I am 6'0 and I have tried to look up what my goal weight should be, and I get anything from 140-190. I have been overweight all my life, so I do not know where I should be (or feel the best).

My family doctor says he would like to see me in the 180's, while my obgyn says 140. HELP!!!

Some of you tall ladies out there....what is your goal, or what are you now that feels right?

How about clothing sizes. I know I will never be a size 2, but what size can I expect to wear once I am within the goal range? Would love to know from your experience.

Thanks!

Well, I'm about 5'10.5", and I currently have my goal set for 175 pounds. I don't remember ever weighing that little in my life, but it falls into a healthy weight range for my height and I think I could maintain it comfortably - That's always important to consider. Do you thing you could live in a way to maintain 140? That does seem like an awefully low weight for someone as tall as you are!

As far as clothing goes I really have no idea where I'm going to wind up, but I'm setting my sights on 10/12 jeans.

I'm 5'8", and my current 170 lbs puts me in a size S/M top and size 8 jeans. My BMI is technically, barely, overweight for my height, but this is a healthy weight for my body, charts or not.

I'm 5'11" and was 170 - 175 through most of my 20s, but I always felt like I could have lost another 10 lbs. I'd be completely happy to get back to 170 though, which is considered "normal" for my height. I was usually a size 12, sometimes a 10.

It depends on your body. I am 6'1" and was around 170 (size 10 or 12)when I was a little younger. I briefly got down to 160 and loved the way I looked but just couldn't maintain it...it was like my body wanted to be in the 170's. I think 140 would be runway model thin on most people that are 6' +. I played college softball so there was a lot of weightlifting involved so when I get back down to that weight I am sure my body composition will be different.

I'm 5'10 and 153lbs at the moment. I'm trying to get to 140lbs - but I don't know if I will get there! I'm a 12/14 UK sizing...probably 10/12 US sizing? I have big hips and a big butt - bone structure - If I could snap my pelvis to make myself narrower I would lol.

EDIT: I could actually be a 8/10 US sizing...different websites say different things...

Another 5'8" here. I'm a size 10 and my weight fluctuates around 160 lbs.

I think I'd be a size 8 with a few more lbs lost.

5'7 here and my goal is to get to 180 and see how I look and feel. From there it'll be watching how my body looks. I want to be at nice weight, but I don't want to be skin and bones

I really needed this! So i'm 199 now and 5'8, I have no clue where to stop but even now at 199 people are telling me I look skinny so I'm thinking that I maybe just want to lose 30 more pounds rather than the 40 to 50 that the BMI thing says I should lose. The last time I was skinny I was 14 years old so I don't have anything to compare to. all you ladies that got to goal y'all look amazing! can't wait to get to goal! My dream is to wear a size 6 ...errmmm Maybe thats a crazy goal? i've been fat for so long it's hard to imagine myself at goal. Anyway I haven't gone shopping in a long time --- I honestly have always hated shopping it would make me so depressed to never fit the clothes I liked. I'm going to wait until the end of the summer before I shop and will just get by with my baggy clothes for now.

I'm 6'1" and I'd be thrilled to see the 160s. Actually, right now I'd be happy with anything that starts with a 1 and not a 2. I don't know what my goal size would be. I can't remember a time when I wasn't a 14 or higher or L-XL. I guess when I get to a 12 or medium, I'll see where I want to go from there.

Your OB is nuts. 140 for someone that is over 6' might look too skinny, especially if you have a larger frame.

Wow, the variations in weight always amaze me. I'm 5'8 and 128 (size 2-4). I'm very slender but by no means skinny. Wish I could weigh more and look good but every little extra pound shows on me!
