I used a weight range in which I felt well decades ago. It's turned out to be the same now--140-145. It took some trial and error to realize that, and also to figure out a WOE to maintain it.

I work in a health profession and BMI, right or wrong, is what's used as one variable to classify patients as to surgical and especially anesthesia risks. Mostly it's a question of which broad category someone falls into, i.e. morbidly obese vs. overweight, etc. It's a quick way to alert a provider about an extra risk factor that may be missed by using weight alone, as is often the case.
