Ideal weight for 5'9"?

(29 Posts)

Currently in week two of SW to shift pre and post baby weight. I am 13st5 and I have set myself an interim target of 12st to get things going.

It has been so long since I was at a weight I was happy with that I can't remember what it was.

I am 5'9" - what would you all suggest?

I have looked at the bmi chart and am thinking about 10st7 / 11?

It depends what size you want to be I suppose. I'm a 14 and would rather be a 12 so I'd like to lose about a stone. I can't imagine being an 8-10 at this height, that sounds a more normal dress size for someone a fair but shorter than me.

Ooh! Me too. I am also that height and came out as 13st3 a week or so ago. Frankly I would be happy with size 12 and 11st7.

we are all so different!
have friends who are right at the top of the BMI charts and look great.
i am right at the bottom - lose half a stone or so and I'd be underweight - but look 'well-covered'

Also weight and size seems to differ, there are people on this thread who are the same height and dress size as me but weigh a good stone more!
