I'm interested to compare really. I'm not huge at 9.5st but would be happier at 9st.

Anyone else around that weight trying to lose half a stone?

10.13 ... aiming for 10.4 though

Hopelass Sat 14-May-16 14:25:38

I'm 5'6" and before I got pregnant was 9st7lbs and would have preferred to be 9st.
Nothing I can do about it at the mo but once baby is born I'd like to aim for 9st again.
Anything over 9st4lbs feels too big for me. At 9st I'm comfortably in a size 10.

Around 10st, want to be 9 though

8 stone 9 pound, happy with the way I am. Tbh if I was over 9 stone at this height I would feel over weight.

I'm in between 5"6 and 5"7.

I'm about 132lbs, prefer 122.

I'm around 10.5stone at the moment, so BMI wise that's fine. I prefer closer to 10 bit if I dip under that I look too thin

I'm 11.7 St. Have to, I think, severely reduce portions and calories to be 10.7. The weight would my ideal but wonder how unrealistic would my eating habits be

EsmeraldaEllaBella Sat 14-May-16 21:51:21

9st 13...

I'd like to be 9st 7, to give me a bit of leeway away from 10st (again!)

Randomposter Sat 14-May-16 21:53:23

9.8 - but was 11.5 two years ago 😱

tigerdog Sat 14-May-16 21:55:51

Just under 10st but that's up from my usual 9st 7lb and I'm working on getting that back down! I'm happy at 9st 7lb. In my 20s I was between 8st7lb and 9st and thought I was fat!

Doilooklikeatourist Sat 14-May-16 21:59:05

11st 9 lbs
Would rather be less
But heigh ho
Would rather have a glass of wine and a mars bar when I fancy one

GingerAndTheBiscuits Sat 14-May-16 22:08:21

12.5. But I have been 16st, so quite happy in comparison grin would be comfortable for my frame at about 11.5 if I can ever be arsed to start actively dieting again

eurochick Sat 14-May-16 22:36:28

10st4. I'm still carrying a few pregnancy pounds that just won't shift. Pre preg I had been between 9 and 10st throughout my adult life. 9st7 is where I look best but anything under 10 is ok.

10st 11lb. I'm fairly broad framed but still feel miles better between 9st7lb and 10st.

Chasingsquirrels Sat 14-May-16 22:41:33

I'm just slightly taller & around 9stone 6lb.
A year ago I was nearly 12 stone.
I think my current weight is ideal, actually 9st 9lb 6 weeks ago was ideal, I've lost a bit more through stress and resultant not eating in the last month. I'm monitoring atm as I don't want to lose more.
I'm mostly an 8 or 10 - I'd probably be a 9 if they made them.

Scoopmuckdizzy Sat 14-May-16 22:42:38

I've been 10 stone and 7 stone 10. I feel most comfortable at around 8.5 stone.

YorkieDorkie Sat 14-May-16 22:48:37

14st sad but dropping. Ideal weight for me is about 10st (I'm quite muscular and have long legs).

calzone Sat 14-May-16 22:51:37

I was 14 stone 3lbs but after 12 months at SW am now 10 stone 12lbs. Would love to be 10 stone.

FurbysMakeSexNoises Sat 14-May-16 22:51:37

9st2 but feel better at 9 or ideally 8st10 but then my tiny boobs are even tinier. And I really love booze and sweet stuff. If I diet I just obsess over food all the time. Don't know how to drop the 3-4lbs!

MozzchopsThirty Sat 14-May-16 22:52:54

9st 6
But really want to be back to 8.13 that's my target!
I feel big at 9.6

BackforGood Sat 14-May-16 22:52:58

In my 20s, 8 stone 3
In my 30s, 8stone 11
In my 40s , 9 stone 13
In my 50s, 10 stone 10

Karoleann Sat 14-May-16 22:54:42

it depends. i'm an active 5'4 i look skeletal at less than 8st6. i am quite muscly.
my normal weight is about 9st which for me is a sx10.
it does vary

PantsOfGold Sat 14-May-16 22:54:49

I'm 10 stone, naturally fairly slim and muscly. Usually a side 10 on top half and 10/12 on bottom. Have put on about 7lbs since Christmas and I'm really not happy with it. I have become quite thick around the middle, mainly due to my comfort eating and drinking.

BearGryllsHasaBigRope Sat 14-May-16 22:56:36

I'm happiest at about 8 - 8 stone 2. I don't carry weight well at all though.
