    It really does depend on the person.
    I am 50kgs (height is about 162cm)and for me that is a healthy weight - i have hovered around this size all my adult life. I am thin but i am not a stick figure, i am not starving myself - this is my natural, healthy weight. My body doesn't gain weight (unless i'm pregnant) i always remain around the 50-52kg mark.
    I know on others this weight would be ridiculously underweight though - it is just way too variable.

    I'm 5"8, at the moment I am 77kg which is considered healthy, I'm in a 12-14 in clothes. Pre baby I was 65kg, and I was quite thin, probably to thin and was always told I needed to eat more, even though I did eat. I'd love to get back down to around 67-70kg, that would put me in a size 10-12 and I'd be happy with that. As for other women, I don't know, everyone is different it's hard to say whats healthy and whats not. I have friends in a size 16 and friends in a size 8 and they both look healthy to me.

    Apparently im in a healthy health range but I tend to differ.. I'm a bloke of 28.. Standing at about 180cm.. Weighing in at only 60.4kg.. Any less I might as well be a jockey


    Any1 can be a father.. It takes a special someone to be a dad, and a greater person to be a stepdad.

    I think it depends on the individual, where we hold our fat etc. I'm naturally very thin, tiny skinny arms, can see bones around my shoulder/neck area. I've always hated being so thin so ate myself silly until I finally reached my personal goal weight of 65 kgs. But in the meantime gave myelf high cholesterol. So being a "healthy weight" for me has caused me to become physically unhealthy. I was eating a hell of a lot of cheese etc.

    People would say "wow you look so healthy", but I felt like sh!t!! I've stopped trying to gain weight and am back to eating a normal diet and the kgs are falling off again.

    I believe I'm naturally meant to be around 56 kgs, anything over and I'm literally force-feeding myself very high fat foods.

    I'm 174cm and 71kg. While healthy, I'd prefer to be 68kg or under. I spent all of high school trying to get to 60kg but was usually around 64.

    Was 62kg at my wedding, but that took a lot of work, and wasn't sustainable.

    But, I have taller friends who weigh quite a bit less than me, and that's healthy for them. So I think it really depends on many things, not just height. Think of natural shape (broad or narrow shoulders, hips, big or small boobs etc).

    I'm 5"8 and 48kg despite my best efforts to gain I struggle. I'd like to be around 52kg so my hips didn't poke out so much! I don't currently look deathly thin or overly unwell but a bit boney . My BMI is a paltry 17.

    I'm 169cm and sat at 57kg before falling pregnant. Im a slight build and so think its a very appropriate weight, bmi almost exactly 20. Ive been down to 52kg but think 57 is better, no more though!

    i'm 170/173cm and have been sitting on 54/55kg since i was 12. my metabolism is stupidly fast. i'd love to be 60kg. my joints stick out and my bum is all bony.
    i guess i'm grateful that i find it so easy not to be overweight but i do think i'm a few kilos under. last bmi count (according to one of those scales you see at shopping centres) was 19.

    i can't convert cm into feet and inches but i'd say for someone my height probably 60-65kg cos that's what i would dearly love to be.
