What is your height and target weight?

I am 5'7 and I wish I weighed 132 pounds, but according to some websites my healthy weight is 150. I am 165 now and I would not be happy with 150. I had two babies in 3 years and went from 145 to 210 in the last month, with both of them. I was fat at 145 - size 8.

  • I'm 5'8" and would be thrilled to be back down to 135, that's about a size 4-6 for me....Let's be honest, I'd be thrilled at 140. I'm about 155 right now and my 'baby' just turned 3. Sigh.
