If you're 5ft 5 or 5ft 6ins?

I'm 5ft 5.5 (the half is important to me!!) and have been losing weight since the birth of DC2 seven months ago, in a bid to get back to normal. Thing is, I can't decide where to stop.

I hit my goal weight recently but I don't feel like I'm "done." I still have excess fat on my tummy and legs, but don't know if I'm normal, a bit chubby or over critical.

So, what is your ideal weight if you're the same height as me? Where do you feel happiest?

FWIW, I'm average build, size 7 feet, big boobs, and pretty active.

For me it was 11.5 stone - although it's still overweight, I felt great ah that weight - curvy hips etc but with flat stomach and my clothes looked good on me. Sadly I have a lot to lose to reach that now!

My ideal weight is sadly underweight... it's so easy to never be happy...

5ft 6.5. Current weight 8 stone 6. Ideal weight 8 stone 2.

I'm small boned though.

I'm happiest at 9st 2, but I look best at 9st 7 I think.

Don't feel too bad at 10st, but you asked for ideal smile

TheZeppo Sun 25-Sep-16 19:35:10

I have medium sized boobs and size 6 feet. Tiny waist (yay) but large bum blush

I'm currently 10 st 5 (5ft 6) and would love to be 9st 7. I haven't been that slim since I got married sad.
I do feel chubby but ultimately fairly happy as I pretty much eat and drink what I want whilst running around after my toddler.

I'm 5 ft 7, ideal /usual weight for me is about 8 st12. Currently nearer 10 st as pregnant. My poor boobs weigh a bloody ton right now, cannot wait to be small boobed again and back to normal sized with a pelvis that works

NuggetofPurestGreen Sun 25-Sep-16 19:38:29

I'm 5 ft 5.5 and my ideal weight is 8 and a half. Tiny frame though.

Pineapplemilkshake Sun 25-Sep-16 19:39:31

Ok I feel like a heifer now after reading these grin

NuggetofPurestGreen Sun 25-Sep-16 19:40:18

Well between 8.5 and 9 is fine for me. Am nowhere near that now!

XiCi Sun 25-Sep-16 19:40:43

I'm 5 ft 5 (and a half) as well, but small build, size 4 feet (although 32ff's to contend with) Ideal weight was always 8st 10 and that's what I look and feel best at. Post kids and now I'm well into my 40s it's really hard to get back to that weight. 9st 4 seems to be the best weight for me now

BennyTheBall Sun 25-Sep-16 19:40:44

I am 5' 7.5, so a smidge taller. I look great at 9 st 3 or thereabouts. I was 8.5 stone when I got married, but that seems unattainable to me now, sadly.

Mrstumbletap Sun 25-Sep-16 19:42:33

5ft 6 and 9st 5. Ideal is 9stone though.

AyeAmarok Sun 25-Sep-16 19:43:27

5ft 5 and 8 stone 2 is my ideal. At that weight I'm slim and toned (and fit from my running) but not "skinny".

I'm 7 months pregnant at the moment and 9 stone, no idea what state I'll be in after this and if I'll ever get back to my 'normal' weight, or if I'll need to find a new normal/ideal.

TopKittyKat Sun 25-Sep-16 19:44:18

9st7 for me. I'm generally around 10st. I have to work hard to lose that extra half.
I'm small boobed with size 6 feet.

Mrsemcgregor Sun 25-Sep-16 19:44:53

I am 5'7" and last summer weighed 9st 10lb and looked really unhealthy and had no energy. Now I weigh 10st 12lb and feel much better. I look good in my face, arms, thighs, bum but would love my tummy to be flatter. I think 10st 5lb is probably ideal for me. I am medium build with size 7 feet

ZaZathecat Sun 25-Sep-16 19:46:16

Same height as you, size 8 feet (clown feet). Ideally I'd be 9st 5lb, but am quite happy where I am at 10st 2lb as it requires no effort to maintain it.

MrsLovemore Sun 25-Sep-16 19:47:30

5' 2''- Now 9 stone- wanting to go down to 8 stone desperately. sad

SlipperyLizard Sun 25-Sep-16 19:49:09

I'm 5'6" and currently 9st 9lb, down from 11st 4lb. Think I'll need to get down to 9 to not have wobbly tummy and thighs, but I look pretty good in clothes at anything under 10st.

whatishistory Sun 25-Sep-16 19:52:25

I'm 5ft 6 and weigh 9 stone 10. I'm curvy with 30G boobs, and well-toned arms/legs/tummy. I would ideally be 9 & 1/2 stone.

dementedma Sun 25-Sep-16 19:55:00

5,7". Would love to get down to 10 and a half stone rather than the 12 I am now.

Mouthfulofquiz Sun 25-Sep-16 19:56:50

I'm 5 foot 6 - currently approx 11 stone; am working towards 10 stone. I've been 9 and a half before, when either really stressed or ill. I look like a baby bird that has fallen out of his nest at that weight!

Crunchymum Sun 25-Sep-16 19:57:06

Blimey. I'm inches shorter and at 8st I'd look ill.

Eastpoint Sun 25-Sep-16 19:57:08

9st 9. 5'6", 30G, size 5 ½ feet & long limbed. Ideal 9'2" but happy to have been under 10 since the start of March. Was 8st 10 in my 20s but approaching 50 now.
