The average American woman is 5'4'' and 140 pounds. 

Is that close to your assumption? Are you around the average?

Not exactly, I perceive the world through patients, who seem a little fluffier than that. So much tasty food in America for sure!

Luckily I am 5'9" so I get some extra calories for height!! I am a healthy weight, yay! Now to keep it there with pregnancy 3!!!!!!! I can do it!!!

I'm 5'3 and currently sitting at 157 (too much for sure).  January was great for me for losing weight and getting on track and then February came and I gained half of that back.  I am currently aiming for at least 140....but hoping to get to 135.

I am 5'8 and used to be 140.  I am now 160.

I'm about 5'9 and a lot heavier. I'm working on the weight though. I've already lost 10 lbs

I'm 5'5" and add about 20 pounds.  I do not see too many average women in Philly.

I'm way below average.  My students comment on it all the time, sometimes positively and sometimes negatively.  I'm 4'11 and about 95 pounds.  My mom is the same way, but she weighs just a little more now that she's older.
