How can you calculate your ideal weight?

I have lost a couple of pounds, but I still have a while to go. I'm not trying to get skinny, just healthy.

You should consult a weight chart, easily found on the internet.. A weight chart will list a ideal range of weights for people based on gender, and height, as well as the size of your frame. A large framed woman's ideal weight will be higher than a smaller framed woman of the same height.

For women, one way to approximate ideal weight is to start with 100 pounds and add 5 pounds for every inch of height over 5 feet tall. Another way to calculate ideal weight is to find your BMI and to set your goal for a BMI in the healthy range.

You will want to use your BMI ( body mass index) which can easily be found online. This will give you a range of weight you should be in with your height and age.
