An acceptable goal weight for 5'5 height? Right now I'm at 199. I haven't set a goal yet as I wanted to see the changes in my body to where is comfortable. But I wondered what a woman my height is suppose to weigh

That I don't know, but I looked up my correct weight/height on-line (140 at 5'7"), and I hover within 2-4 pounds of that. Depends on your age, too. Depends on your bone structure (measure your wrist at the thinnest part) and look that up on-line. Also depends on how fit you are (muscle weighs more than fat -- which makes a lot of BMI's wrong... Body Mass Index). Fitness may depend more on how you feel and the results of blood tests including thyroid, heart exam, lung exam).

A quick search for BMI (body mass index) showed 150 as a 'healthy' weight for your height and age. Depending on your heritage, you may be prone to be more heavy than you will see on a generic scale, there is nothing wrong with that. If you feel healthy, you are at a fine weight. Regardless of what some generic scale says.<br />

If you want to loose weight for yourself, set a goal you are happy with that you can actually attain. You don't have to be at any particular weight as long as you are happy with yourself.

I have never fit this, when I was younger it was funny to watch the nurse get on the scale after I got off, even when I was 225 on a 5'11' body.

120 is acceptable. 130 would be the limit. Anything above is overweight.<br />

Good luck!
