  • HA! I'll never be that thin, I'd look like a scarecrow. My shoulders and hips are too big to be 115lbs. My ideal weight is 130-135lbs, so I've got about 90lbs to lose (though I'll lose some when I have this baby. I'm 38 weeks 1 day!)

  • Well, I am 5'7" and aparently obese. I weigh around 180 when not pregnant, and wear a size 11 in juniors. My BMI is obese, but I think I am very healthy. I have a flat stomach and huge boobs and huge hips. I like the way I look, and look funky when I loose to much weight. I am healthy. But according to my BMI, I need to loose about 50 pounds to be "healthy".

  • I'm 5'0 tall, so I SHOULD weigh around 115-125, but when I weight 135 I looked anorexic, so I'm not going there.

  • I'm 5' 7" and before I had my son I weighed 145. and I am pregnant again (8m) and weigh 220 so I have alot to lose because I want to get back to that. So after I have her I would guess between 60-75lbs. But I have 2 other kids that I have to chase all day so I bet it wont be that hard or I hope not.

  • I am 5'1" and I weigh 115-120 (my scale is in storage! lol) I am not overweight at all but I would like to get down to about 110. I am flabby and need to tone up. Unfortunately, all my weight goes to my belly! But starting Monday, me and my fiance are going to work out together so we are in (better) shape for our wedding!
