What is your ideal weight at 5.3?

Saw a similar thread on here regarding a taller height.

I’m a size 10/8 and 9 stone, I personally look and feel better around 8.5 stone but boy does it take some effort to get rid of the 0.5!

What about you?

i am currently 12st 9lbs and 5ft 2. Having PCOS means that weight is easily put on but harder to get off.
my ideal weoght/ body size is when Im around 10st

I’d say the same as you. I hover around 9 stone 2. If I was below 9st I’d lost some stubborn fat around my bum and thighs (I’m very pear shaped) but it’s very difficult so I don’t bother grin

I'm 9st 3
I like to be 9.
At 8.5, my face looks too gaunt. Smokin' body though 😂

I'm that height 9st/8.13 is right for me.

Unfortunately since lockdown I'm at least a stone heavier.

Currently 9st or just under depending on time of day. Would like to be 8.6 as that's where I feel most comfortable.

Drinkandknowthings Wed 10-Jun-20 10:11:37

Same as most. I’m very happy at 9 stone (am almost 2 stone heavier at the moment).

I think I could aim to get to 8 stone 7 but I’ve never weighed that little so I don’t know.

I'm very overweight currently 12.8 and would like to get down to 10. If I go below 9 and a half, I constantly get asked if I'm poorly! It doesn't look right on me

Flittingabout Wed 10-Jun-20 10:28:39

I'm about a stone heavier.

I look best at 9 but hard to maintain. At 9 7 it is easier and feel happy at that weight.

WinWinnieTheWay Wed 10-Jun-20 10:44:59

I am that height and my ideal weight is 8st7lb. I'm a stone over that at the moment and I don't feel like myself. My face carries weight so there is no hiding it.

KhoPeePee Wed 10-Jun-20 10:47:36

I'm this height and I think 10st or a little over. I was about that a few years ago and felt really slim (and others commented that I was)! About a stone and a half above that now.

Microwaveoven Wed 10-Jun-20 10:53:53

9.6 is about what I can manage to maintain. I don't think I could get under 9 unless I didn't eat.
I have 2 stone to loose now. It's scary.

Hudders3 Wed 10-Jun-20 10:59:31

5'2 here, 10 - 10.7 is fine for me, obviously the lower end of 10 stone is nicer. Anything below 10 stone I just find it so hard to maintain.

GoodUserName Wed 10-Jun-20 11:01:24

I was between 7.5 and 8 stone before 2 babies close together I'm now 8.5 but yet thinner than before and a smaller size just weigh more will never know why but there we go.

This is so interesting, thank you all!

Clearly I’m shooting high. I want to be about 11st at 5ft 4.

Fishfingersandwichplease Wed 10-Jun-20 11:16:56

I am 5"2 was 13 stone 1lbs but have lost some and now am 11 stone 12lbs but want to lose at least another stone. Have been on medication for 5 years that made me put on weight - try not to obsess over what the scales say because l exercise regularly but being at the lower end of a size 12 is where l am comfortable.

iwilltaketwoplease Wed 10-Jun-20 11:16:54

I am 5"2 and a half, I'm a size 8 tops and size 8/10 in jeans (wider hips) and I weigh 8.5stone. I would feel better around 9/9.5 stone because I feel/look rather boney in places.

sausagefingersH Wed 10-Jun-20 11:18:15

Mine is 10 stone but I haven't seen 10 stone for about 9 years blush recently got to 10.5stone and it was so much better but regained in lockdown and now 12 stone and feel fat and awful sad

BrokenBrit Wed 10-Jun-20 11:22:27

I’m currently 10.5 stone, need to lose a stone to be my best but no lower. I do weights and am quite muscular but currently have rather a belly due to lockdown munching.

Lamazey Wed 10-Jun-20 11:25:12

I'm 5' 3.5" and my "natural" weight before children was 9st 7lbs...I was a comfortable size 10. I have a stone and a half to lose sad

TheDogsMother Wed 10-Jun-20 11:36:16

5 ft 3 here and ideally 8st 1lb (very specific I know). Any lower and my face looks gaunt, any higher and my middle looks doughy despite a lot of working out. Size 8 at this weight.

ShinyRuby Wed 10-Jun-20 11:40:48

Would like to be 9.4 ideally but can maintain so much better at around 9.10. If I go over 10st I feel uncomfortable.

Perro Wed 10-Jun-20 11:41:01

I am the same height and 9st4 is my ideal weight, hourglass size 10 top and 8/10 bottom half.
Any less than that and people start to ask me if I’m ok. Over 9st7 I start to feel soft and my stomach gets round.

Lucindainthesky Wed 10-Jun-20 11:42:20

5 ft 3 and currently 10.5 stone.

My ideal weight is 9 stone although I find it difficult to get down to that nowadays and would settle for 9.5. Below 9 stone I look a bit gaunt in the face.
