  • Sounds like a healthy enough weight for your height. Did it seem like a healthy weight pre-preg? If so then I don't see why it wouldn't still be.

  • I am starting to keep my weight I never did before I could eat what I wanted and yes 105 was a healthy weight for me I was never told I was underweight. I know I am nearing the end my my BMI healthiness so this is why I asked.

  • I don't give BMI a lot of "weight" lol. It doesn't take into account how much or how little muscle someone has or even bone density which can weigh more or less depending on race. My husband's BMI says he's obese lol and he's at like 10% bodyfat! He just has A LOT of muscle which weighs more than fat. All that said, the BMI calculator I just tried said your BMI at 105 for your height would be 19.8 and that women usually "look their best at 20 to 22" so I would think that 19.8 would be just fine and healthy.

  • Funny... I just put my height and weight in and got 19.8! (well my pre-preg weight, right now it says 22.1 but I'm pregnant)
