    i have recently decided to lose some weight. i have decided i want to be between 50-55kg. two friends of mine think this is too low as i am about 160cm (about 5ft 4) tall. is this too low? :umm:

    I wouldn't say that is too low. I weigh in the 40s and I'm around 160cm.

    Before I had kids I was 57kg's at 5ft 8.

    It depends on your build, but 50 to 55 sounds fine.

    Good luck in loosing the weight, I'm a a medication now which one of the side effects seems to be holding on the weight. I walk most days for 45 mins to an hour up steep hills etc and haven't lost anything [​IMG]

    I know I'm getting fitter, and my hips are slimmer and they say muscle way's more then fat so I keep telling it's ok.

    If you're curious, then your body mass index (BMI) gives an indication whether you're at a healthy weight for your height.

    There are calculators on the internet (just search for bmi+calculator).
    To do it manually, for metric it's your weight in kg divided by your height in metres squared. It's a different calculation for imperial but I couldn't find it.

    If the number you get is:
    Below 18.5, Underweight.
    18.5 – 24.9, Normal.
    25.0 – 29.9, Overweight.
    30.0 and Above, Obese

    A table for imperial can be found here

    Yay, I weighted myself the other day and have lost 4 kilos. All the walking has paid off, I hope I can continue to lose more now. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    yeah it is easy to get carried away when you are dieting [​IMG]

    The better you eat whilst dieting the easier it is to keep it off afterwards because you should be eating the same when you reach your goal weight
    I have lost over 3 and half stone wanna go another half tho yet by september it getting harder now im getting near goal weight [​IMG]
