    Default Spin off; would do you consider a healthy weight

    for the average woman?

    *my 38kg model thread made me wonder*

    so i guess an average height of maybe 5'7 -5'8??

    It depends on build. I used to be around 55kg and that was healthy for me. If my MIL dropped to 55kg she would look ridiculous. So it's different for everyone.

    Maybe 60, 65kg?? I'm not a good judge as I'm a lot shorter, but I would expect someone that tall to be a size 10/12 at least.

    It always baffles me how women strive to be the smallest size possible, like why does a really tall woman still want to be a size 8? You never hear a really tall guy saying he wishes he could fit into a small... I think we should be in proportion, you know?

    55kg would be unhealthily thin for me.

    So I don't really know as I am only concerned about my own weight.

    I wonder that too... Like jeans etc, wouldn't they become ankle freezers on a 6ft size 8?? Lol

    I am 5'8 and my healthy weight range according to BMI is 57-75kg. I got down to 71kg and was a size 10/12 (size 11 jeans from jeans west fit perfectly) and I had people telling me I was too thin. Whether that was because I have always been overweight so the change was dramatic etc I don't know but I felt healthy and fit and that I could maintain that weight easily. All the Goal Weight websites said I should be 67kg but if I had of lost another 4kg to get there I would have been a true size 10 and would have struggled to maintain.

    I'd say 60-65, Most ladies that height would be happy at 58 but 55 i think is just a little too small.

    I'm 5'5'' and always aimed to stay under 60kg before I was pg. That worked for me and made me feel good, but I'm sure a bit more or a but less would still be fine for others of te same height. It's all about how you feel about yourself.

    I am 5'11 and have been since I was 12. I was a size 8 until 17 when I grew hips and boobs and bumped up to a 10.

    I did modeling and got sent old sample sizes which had longer legs than standard small sizes.

    But ankle freezers is what store bought pants were on me. They looked ridiculous.

    Depends on height and build really. I'm 177cm tall and I look healthy in the range of about 65kg give or take. In my early 20s I was about 62kg and while my lower half was super trim, my upper body was verging on too skinny, a bit too boney for my liking. I'm currently 71kg (DD is 4 months old, so I'm still shedding a bit of 'baby related' weight gain), but still look pretty healthy and am aiming to get back to about 67kg which was my pre pregnancy weight.

    For a shorter person, I guess their ideal weight would be a bit less than that, but then maybe not....they might feel healthy and fit at a higher weight (skinny doesn't always equal healthy).
