Ideal weight by frame size

Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight by frame size


Avatar f tn 117-130 127-141 137-155 You can pretty much determine your frame size by looking at your hands, feet and shoulder width. If those are small for people your height, you'd be small frame, if they are average, medium frame and if larger than most people your size would be large frame.
Avatar f tn your best weight depends on several factors besides your age. How tall are you? What is your body type, i.e., small boned, large boned, average boned, medium boned. The best thing to do is type into your internet, "Ideal weight, or what is my ideal weight"? The internet will help you figure it out. I am 5'11" tall and my ideal weight would be 105 lbs. (if I were younger) to 112 lbs. I have a small frame.

Avatar n tn Hi, the concept of body frame is better understandable when we talk about body mass index. BMI is calculated by dividing the weight in kilograms by height in meter squares. The normal body mass index is between 20 to 24.9. For that, considering your height your body weight ideally should be between 50 to 60 kg. I hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Your weight not only depends on your height, but also your frame size. Some with a large frame (large bones) should weigh more than someone who is very small/fine boned. Here's a portion of a chart that applies to you: Height Small Frame Medium Frame Large Frame 5'5" 117-130 127-141 137-155 At 135, you're really not overweight at all, unless you are very small boned, then just barely.
Avatar m tn Meant to say "waist", not weight :) So, if your height is 70 inches, than your waist (no sucking it in :) ) should be no more than 35 inches. BTW I doubt you lost 4lbs of fat today, probably most of it is water weight. Best to lose weight gradually anyway -- like 1-2 lbs per week. Not sure what your nurse means by "make no diff".
Avatar n tn I am not really sure what you mean by frame size?
Avatar n tn Your ideal weight depends on your age, as well as your height and weight. A child's ideal weight will be different from that of a teenager and a teenager will be different from that of an adult. There are a variety of exercises that will burn fat.
Avatar f tn s a bit I copied from a height/weight chart, that pertains to you. Your actual weight depends on the size of your frame. Small Frame Medium Frame Large Frame 5'2" 108-121 118-132 128-143 Depending on your frame size, you might not even be overweight.
284738 tn?1283106819 I'm 5'9" and have a large frame. I was once much thinner when I was younger, too thin in fact. Everyone is different, but I know that my body type can't get down to tiny sizes. More petite women change sizes faster (with less weight loss) than taller women. Do you carry your weight evenly? I do, I don't put it all on in one place. That also makes it slower to change size.

479244 tn?1271563659 Does anyone know anything about the IDEAL study? This is where I think the info came from regarding my original decision to go with the pegintron.... less relapse rate, less sides, stays in system shorter amt. of time when you come off , etc. My new nurse, said that study had a lot of flaws and she did not put a lot of faith in it and talked me into pegysus... any comments would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn Hello, I am a 29 year old female, 5'4 and 131 pounds. I recently lost over 100 pounds in the course of a year through diet and exercise. (starting weight 244 in September of 2010). I have always been overweight, and now have a lot of excess skin, which is to be expected. My question is about my ideal weight. My goal started at 150 pounds, then 140, then 130, now I'm thinking my ideal would be 120.
Avatar f tn The dosage you state is correct but is not based on your actual weight. It is the general guideline based on lean body mass/ideal body weight (IBW) which is a better indicator of replacement needs. IBW is based on sex, height, and frame size. Not everyone needs full replacement and as Barb135 stated, we are all different and it is better to work upward slowly based on lab results than to risk overdose based solely on a general guideline that may or may not be right for you.
Avatar f tn Also my pre-pregnancy bra size was only a 34B now im almost a D and im only 21 weeks. Did this happen anyone else. What kind of bras did you wear?
Avatar n tn The average size for an American woman is around size 14. That would be about 40lbs over weight for my 5ft 2in medium frame. You really should talk to your doctor, your personal genetics, medical issues, age, etc have a lot to do with it. My doc tells me I should weigh between 115 and 119. I feel best around 117.
Avatar m tn I think you've hit part of the problem by not going to the gym. Weight training builds muscle, which is heavier than fat and fills you out without just eating more and gaining fat. You do have to increase your food intake so you don't burn everything off, but remember, less weight as long as you have the proper nutrients may not be your ideal look but it is healthier. But if you must be heavier, switch off the aerobics with weight training.
4270856 tn?1355798754 Hmm I think about 5 or 6lbs by 19 weeks.
Avatar f tn They make me look bigger than I am. I am a size 30F. How do I loose weight to make me look smaller? or do I need to get a boob job? on paper I sound healthy but I feel horrible and want to change my body.
Avatar n tn It depends on your frame size. If you have larger frame, you're likely to weigh more than if you're smaller framed. As long as you're active, 48 kg is okay for a 15 yr old.
Avatar f tn I don't know if that's an outrageous goal or not; it depends on your body type. That means whether you have a small frame, medium frame or large frame - when I say "frame", I mean your bone structure. If you have a large frame - like if your hands and feet are larger than most girls your age, then 110 lbs is unrealistic, but if you have a small frame it might be okay. I'd probably say that 115-125 might be a better long term goal to start with.
