Answer: To figure out what your healthy weight is, calculate your BMI. Your Body Mass Index will tell you if you are at a healthy height-to-weight ratio. You can look up many BMI calculators that will calculate it for you, but the formula is: Weight in pounds (lbs) divided by height in inches (in) squared and multiplied by a conversion factor of 703 (weight (lbs) / [height (in)2] x 703).
Compare your number with the ones below:
Underweight- BMI less than 18.5 Normal- BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 Overweight- BMI of 25 to 29.9 Obese- BMI of 30 and above
Answer: For girls, the weight of 119 pounds at 11-12 years is above the average range. For boys, the weight is close to the upper range limit. But a simple weight calculation is insufficient and depends upon the body mass composition. If this weight is mostly muscle or bone, an above-average figure is meaningless and of no concern. A weight which is mostly fat tissue (or water weight) would be considered unhealthy at levels even lower than the upper normal range.Weight and weight-loss concerns should always be discussed with a physician or health-care specialist, who can investigate possible causes and recommend safe guidelines for addressing these concerns.
Answer: I am 5 feet 8 inches tall and 51 years old. I weigh 138 lbs. and feel like that is my best weight. The amount of fat or muscle on your body can affect that number. Muscle weighs more than fat, so a more muscular woman will weigh more but still be at her ideal weight.
