Common Questions and Answers about Height weight chart women


Avatar f tn Healthy weight range depends on your frame size. Here's a portion of the height/weight chart for women: Height Small Frame Medium Frame Large Frame 5'6" 120-133 130-144 140-159 If you don't know how to tell your frame size, look at your hands/feet; are they considerably smaller/larger than others your height? Are you shoulders narrower/wider? Your weight also depends on muscle mass.
1530342 tn?1405020090 Overweight...REALLY?! I'm 5'5 and I weigh158lbs. That's over weight for my height. I'm 2lbs overweight according to the womens weight chart. I guess trying for a baby isn't gonna make that go down.
1149046 tn?1264365186 For your height, you are just about perfect weight. Losing 20 pounds would put almost in the "underweight" category. I would not advise doing that. Here's part of a height/weight chart that applies to YOU. Height Small Frame Medium Frame Large Frame 5'6" 120-133 130-144 140-159 I would suggest that you eat a well balanced diet and continue with your exercise.
1642895 tn?1314668012 You should gain that during the span of the entire pregnancy. Based on your weight (which depending on your height) you would be classified as overweight. (I know I'm personally 5'2 and pre-pregnancy I was 147 and was overweight) If you were a normal healthy weight before pregnancy, you would gain 25-35 pounds. Overweight you would gain 15-20 pounds. Underweight would be 35-40 pounds. You should NOT however skip meals.
478429 tn?1265247987 Then i am going to have to say girl...LOL. Usually with boys women tend to fill out all around and they just look fat for awhile...LOL!!!!! I guess we will have to wait now, so my official guess is girl then!!
10389360 tn?1410827568 BMI is probably the worst way to measure how fit you are. It's just weight and height. So if you're short and muscular you may have a high bmi indicating you are "fatter" than you actually are. I wouldn't worry so much about it. There are lots of other more accurate measurements like the fat skin fold tests and bone size tests. If you are big boned (which is a real thing!) Your bmi will also be higher.
299260 tn?1304219705 ) Staying very hopeful for you!! Ok, i'm tired now! :) Going to bed, I've had a long day! See y'all in the morning!
299260 tn?1304219705 she is here and now that I cked my chart, she even show herself too early for me, this cycle was only 27 days long, a very strange thing for me....I guess the stress does make a huge impact on our cycles! leighanne: I think we can all help updating the list atleast once or twice per week. Mommyin10: Happy 3 month B-day to Ricky and Ava!!
6918915 tn?1395936471 I don't think it is allot Ady all I have lost 9 lbs and I am 16 weeks they aren't worried maybe they just want to make sure you eat healthy and keep it in check I know alot of doctors that belive thIs factor in fact we have one in the hospital i work at they just want healthy I know alot of ppl that easy unhealthy and have complications not everyone us the same but I would take it to keep myself in check not negative necessarily I won't buy maternity pants cause o want to make sure I don't gain
Avatar f tn I know there are several people here who can't seem to put weight on. I stay sick to my stomach a lot, also. I would think that would make me lose weight. I don't know. I am starting to get very concerned about it. That is probably one of the last things for me to be "worried" about, but I have a fear of being overweight like my mother and sister. I want to be as healthy as I can at the time. Thanks y'all for your support.
Avatar f tn Her weight is between the 5-10th percentile and her height is below the 5th percentile for her age. She is still on the growth chart for weight which is good, and she maybe just small in stature. Does the family have a history of small women? That is good you are using milkshakes and Pediasure. Suggest giving her milkshakes in place of milk at every meal. Make sure she is eating a protein food each meal (meat, fish, cheese, or yogurt) too.
Avatar f tn I've put in a bit of a height/weight chart that would apply to you. Height Small Frame Medium Frame Large Frame 5'5" 117-130 127-141 137-155 That said - yes, hormonal changes can cause weight gain, but I don't believe it's true that when a woman hits 30, she automatically gains weight.
Avatar f tn Small Frame Medium Frame Large Frame 117-130 127-141 137-155 I'd advise you to keep up with your healthy diet, as I, also, know that Zoloft (as well as other antidepressants) can deplete the body of some nutrients.
Avatar n tn We are all average height and weight. I gained 50. Now is not the time to worry. Like everyone has said, eat healthy, continue to exercise like before (with doc approval) and dont obsess over weight gain.
Avatar n tn I've been taking 500 mg/day of metformin. Just wondering if any of you have taken this, and if so, have you experienced any weight loss?
Avatar n tn I have digenerative disc disease and my neirologist just prescribed topamax, he said it would help with the pain and tingling but could result in weight loss. I am wondering if prescribing topamax for ddd is common among neurologists? I can't seem to find any other information related to topamax as a pain med, only information I have is that it's a powerful drug with lots of side effects, most not so good. The weight loss aspect is the only plus...
Avatar n tn For children growth and weight are measured against a growth chart by percentiles. Her weight is very above the 95th percentile and her height is on the 95th percentile for her age. She may be bigger in general due to genetics. Are there tall women in the family? It is recommend increasing children's physical activities (play, dance, sports) to lose weight, and not lower calorie intake due to the need of calories for growth. For her age she needs approximately 1800 calories a day to grow.
Avatar n tn My Daughter was in the 75th percentile weight wise for a while, but when I compared her lenght it was in the 75th percentile too. is his height relative to his weight? If your baby is short too...you don't want to put any more weight on him..he will be just fine..that is just his build! :D Good luck!
Avatar f tn The March of Dimes' website used to have (probably still does) a good chart of average weight gain during pregnancy. It might ease your mind.
Avatar n tn These are not all that difficult to diagnose, but may not be on the mind of an internist who may just think women gain weight from emotional stuff (ie, eating to calm feelings a la Oprah). Another thing to check is medication side effects. I'm not certain about weight gain, but a pregnant looking belly can be from uterine fibroids. A big belly from fluid trapped like in one post is often from liver problem and can be very serious.
964096 tn?1299510936 Please calculate your BMI and it relates with your height, weight and age. Go to a dietician to chalk out a good balanced diet chart for yourself. When the input and output of energy balances you do not lose weight. But before that you should remember that if your are in normal range of BMI do not worry that much and continue the good work you are doing. Do not stress your body and if you, other problems will arise. Take care!
Avatar n tn I was looking back on my weight loss chart and saw that within 3 weeks of starting lexapro each time, I had a significant weight gain. I went from 175 to 185 the first time and then continued to gain despite following the program and exercising. When I went off the med, the weight began to drop and I made it down below 200. I started it again in February this year and within 3 weeks, here came another 10 pounds and it's been steadilly going up ever since.
Avatar n tn It's the March of Dimes chart on how much weight gain is desirable during pregnancy. I don't see where the doctor got the snide remark, myself. I'm at 30 weeks and have gained 21 lbs. and that hasn't bothered my doctor at all.
Avatar f tn Everytime I go to the doctor I hope I have gained something. It's the weirdest thing. The women in my family don't really gain a lot of weight during pregnancy so maybe that's why. My mom lost a pound during her pregnancy with my brother and my cousin lost a total of 17 throughout the course of her pregnancy. Both babies born healthy and over 8 pounds. I guess I'll have to wait and see.
Avatar n tn I feel like all the ideal measure on weight and height out there are scewed for people that lift and have large muscle mass. Im concerned Im overweight but not sure if its healthy weight or not? I made an appt for this week to get blood work done to figure out if it is a thyroid or some type of hormonal problem. It was commforting to hear Im not the only one with this type of problem! Thanks for all the info!
Avatar f tn RMR = 655 + (4.35 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) - (4.7 x age in years) Per this equation, if your RMR dropped 200 calories per day lower than normal, due to low metabolism due to low TISSUE T3 EFFECT, with no change in diet/exercise, you would slowly gain approx. 46 pounds before the effect of the added weight on your RMR would equalize out the lower metabolism.
Avatar n tn For women: 661 + (4.38 x weight in pounds) + (4.38 x height in inches) - (4.7 x age)= Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) Then add your BMR to the calories you burn during activities: look this number up on the internet - type in something like "calories burned running" (or more generally: BMR x activity level. Sedentary: BMR x 1.15, for light activity-normal everyday stuff: BMR x 1.3, moderately active-exercise 3-4 times a week BMR x 1.4, Very active-more than 4 times a week: BMR x 1.

Avatar n tn I went today for my first week weight check and my second shot.....my weight loss for my first week is 9.5 pounds!!!! Anyone else using Phentermine and B12? I would love to hear how other people have done on these meds. Good Luck to everyone trying...I want to hear your story!
284738 tn?1283110419 You might find that once you reach a size 12 or even 14, considering your height you may realize that you don't have to lose anymore. I found a healthy weight chart and according to the chart this is what it says for females your height. It can still vary from person to person, but you can use this as a general guide. For female's 5'11 with a small frame a healthy weight would be between 135-148. For a medium frame 145-159 and a large frame 155-176.
