    How Many of You Are at Your Ideal Body Weight?

    I'm curious to know how many of you are healthy and slim. Sorry the chart is so confusing small frames are on the right and large on the left. I'm a little over 5'6" with a small frame and my weight is 127, so I guess I'm alright but could be in a little bit better shape.

    Just spotted this.

    I've been about the same weight for the past 30 years - between 175 and 180 pounds (height 6' 0") and I'm currently 178 pounds.

    I can't say I agree with the chart though because at best I'm only "medium" build but this puts me well into the "large" category, which I definitely am not.

    These charts aren't that good, someone can build muscles and easily pass beyond "large frame", or have heavy bones. A mix of heavy bones + muscles will most definitely have you pass "large frame" by a marginal, without being overweight or unhealthy.

    Edit: Have I understood this right, are you supposed to decide yourself what frame you are? I thought your height + weight was to decide the frame. Hmm...

    I don't much like these charts or stats. Right now I have a little extra weight, but by mid spring it will be gone.

    The other thing to consider is muscle mass. At 5'8" I weigh 205 lbs. with no extra fat. My chest is 50" and my waist is 34". If I were at the weight the chart says I would not have enough muscle to work and I would have to change what I do for a living.

    Yah you're supposed to decide what type of frame you are I guess I just didn't think carefully when I posted this. I think you could simply estimate your frame based on what size you wear or you could do some sort of measurements. Yah, I agree these charts aren't the best but its hard to create a chart for everyone since young people have more muscle mass and such so I wouldn't take it too seriously body fat % is the best way to determine your fitness.

    6'1" 193 Lbs. Is that normal?
    When I was a kid I prayed that I would be 7 foot tall.
    Maybe I should have grown up in The Netherlands.

    Good to see that you included frame, not just any conjured-up weight according to BMI. According to BMI, I'd need a weight of 77 kg/170 lbs to be my "ideal weight". At my army aptitude test (compulsory year of national service is still in place in Austria) they noted down "adipositas" for a then BMI of approx. 30,2 (at 103kg/227lbs); when I actually googled that term it rendered people about thrice my size.

    I dare everyone to check my pictures in the picture thread, at the time of being taken they're almost all between 94kg/209lbs (the 2006/2007 ones) and 103kg/227lbs (the 2009 ones), and then tell me where you'd deduct 17kg/39lbs resp. 26kg/57lbs --- if I weighted 77kg/170lbs I'd be like anorexic.

    With the "large frame" possibility included, the cut-off line for "ideal weight" at 6' 1 1/2" (186cm) appears to be at approx. 195lbs, which translates to about 88kg; a figure I am bound to believe more, because when I last had that weight I must admit I was temporarily in almost overly good shape; a plan is already in order to get into reasonably good shape again by the summer, target is actually my yearlong "battle-weight" of 94kg/209lbs., I felt most comfortable and well-rounded when I had that.

    At any rate, even now when we're closer to 240lbs (let myself go too much last summer ) I don't come across as "fat", simply as "well-built". For some reason, my body understands how to translate over-weightness into "being a presence , I've never complained at that, it helps to shut up obnoxious types".

    (Though of course it's not "all fat" but a fair deal of "chub/muscle mixed" anyway, which is obviously heavier than just fat mass on its own, though of course J Baughman already mentioned this. I tend to say "some fresh muscle and some relaxed muscle due to advanced age" )

    The women haven't complained either, I suppose I'm just usually the safer option over some über-skinny bone-rack when they examine whether a potential partner is going to survive the winter.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    My height is 184 centimetres. My weigth is about 79 kilogrammes. I am trying to gain weigth, as I have been told that a grown man should not weigh less then one kilogramme pr. centimetre of height above one meter. Hence, I should weigh at least 84 kilogrammes.
    I do strength training and try to eat healthy and plentifully, in an attempt to gain weigth.
