 I'm about 5'7" and my ideal weight should be around 122-149.  I haven't weighed anywhere near 149 since I was in high school.  I am 33 and currently weigh 196.  I have been on a diet for 5 weeks now and have lost about 22 pounds.  I really want to try to weigh about 160.  I still have a long way to go!

This is where I figured my weight range. And it says 142-156. Ugh. That means that according to this I should lose about 55 lbs! U G H!!!! I WILL NOT. Focus on such a big number. 10 lbs at a time. So, I weigh 211 right now. Yup. Yup. Yup. Kinda sad now.

I am always in the recommended weight group. I am 5'7" and have been both at the low end of that spectrum and the high end, but in more recent years have been pretty much around 130-135. I am pregnant right now (28 wks) so I'm a bit off of it right now! LOL

I'm 5ft 7 too.

I am currently at 160 (after going to visit hubby in Utah for a few days...ugh) but that will drop quickly. Last week, I was 154 at my lowest.

I started at 239, and I have decided I want to go for mid 140's I think

105-140 per my BMI. I have 30lbs to go to enter that realm. 45 to get to my big goal.

I'm also 5'7", but have a long way to go. I'm focusing on small goals, though
