Height: 5'0"


I'm 5' with a small frame. I looked great at 102, decent at 107, and started to get chunky looking around 112. But that was before I had any muscle.

I'm 116 lbs (give or take) right now and a size 4 (give or take). I am shooting for 104 plus same/more muscle than I have now, but that may be a bit too low. I'd probably be happy at 107.

How did you get a growth spurt? I'd kill for one of those.

If you measure your wrist you can find out what frame you are. My wrist is 5.5 exactly, so I am on the border of medium framed, but I'm aiming for 110-112. I'm also pear shaped and although I quite like the upper half of my body as it is, my stomach is relatively flat most of the time, I HATE my lower body and based my goal weight on my legs and especially my thighs. I'm using it as a loose indicator and will probably reassess when I get a little closer to my goal and decide whether I want to be lower or higher.

I am 5'2" and large framed (6in wrist and 2.75in elbow breadth) and my goal weight is 115...130 to 120 was pretty easy, these last 5 are taking forever!

My GW is a little higher than most of you - I'm around 5"2 and I'm aiming for around 130-132lbs because that's what I feel is realistic for me. I've always been chubby, ever since I was a kid, and I just don't know if my body is built to be any smaller. I will have to find my measuring tape and measure my wrist to find out my frame size. Thanks for that tip!

I'm aiming for between 120 and 110 lbs. I can't remember why I chose those numbers exactly. But I don't remember being under 9 stones (126 lbs) as an adult. Though I have a feeling that it's not realistic for me to maintain a weight as low as 110 lbs. Doesn't stop me from giving it a go though.

I picked 110lbs a long time ago, because it seemed like a dream at the time, and heck, you always need a goal. I just weighed myself this morning, and I'm 112. Holy crap.

I've now changed my goal to 105lbs. And still kind of reeling in shock.

Actually my "ideal" weight is supposed to be around 110-115 for my height of 5"3. I have a really small frame, small boobies and not really wide hips. My first goal was 100, I'll see when I'll be there. I currently have a plateau at 105 even though I was down to 102 lately. It's annoying!

I'm 5'0" and have a small frame, so 110-115 lbs is my ideal range in my own mind

I'm 5' with a large frame, and I'd like to get down to 130 lbs (my lowest adult weight). I weighed in the high 120s during high school, but when I dieted and got down to 120, my face looked kind of gaunt and unattractive. 130 is just right for me.

Mainly, i want to be slim looking as well as what the scale says
I'm like you, but I'm just shy of 5'. I am about 130 now and wear 4's or tight 2's, and I'm usually standing around 123 or so in 2's.
When I was in college I got down to 112 by hardly eating and running/lifting for two hours a day. I was wearing 0's.

I think I'd be happy around 115. My lowest post-baby weight was 119, and I looked great.

I'm 4'11".. I'm at 131 right now... My ideal weight is 115. That is what I weighed right after high school and was wearing size 2. Right now I wear size 8's. I have a large butt and thighs.

I'm 5' 2" with a small frame. My goal is 110. I am hour glass to pear shaped. I have a big butt and heavy thighs with large saddlebags. I'm having a really tough time losing the weight in my lower body.

S/C/G: 199/128/125 (new goal of 115)

Height: 5'3


I'm 5'2.5, curvy (DD boobs and I have hips) and small boned and I thought my ideal weight would be 125, well now I'm at 125 and I would now like to be at 115, I think I will be happy with another ten pounds gone.

I'm 4'9.5". My average weight in my late teens, early 20s was between 107-117. At that weight, I wasn't overly thin and still had plenty of curves. Post kids, my weight leveled off at the 135-140 mark. During a 6 month period between Oct 2009 and 2010, I experienced some health issues including very low vitamin D levels and self-medicated with food and very little physical activity and spiked up to 165lbs - yikes! After a year and a half of slow and steady weight loss, I am currently down to 125. I'm feeling pretty good, and just squeezing into a size 8. I know that after 2 kids and with a very curvy build ( i.e. big bust, butt, + hips) I can't aim to be super skinny, but I would love to get to a point where I feel good in a pair of jeans ( which I haven't worn in over 10 years ). My initial goal going forward is 114 ... followed by a revisit to my adult low of 107. I would love to see what I would look and feel like below 100, but I am also reasonable and realize that my body may not be built for that. I have also learned that muscle tone is key to avoid those jiggles, so fitness needs to be a goal as well as that dreaded number on the scale

I'm in between 5 feet/5'1" with a small frame and all throughout highschool I was 105 - 113 lbs and was 108 lbs when I left for college. I'm hoping to get back down to that weight but I've been stuck in the lower 120's for what feels like forever :/
