My doc says the ideal weight is like 122 - 165 or something like that.
I'm 135 which is petite.
You'd be considered overweight - but it matters more how the weight is disriputed that would dictate sexiness and what not.
If you have bigger breast, hips, thighs, ass - not neccesarily detrimental to your female image - oh and wearing the right clothes that flatter you will def help.
Working out is great - but don't think just riding the eliptical or running the treadmill for 30 min a day is going to do much.
If you have weights available to you - start doing squats, ab stuff, and toning after running / cardio. You'll burn fat but tone as well which will keep everything tighter and sexier - especially the abs which will suck your stomach in.
Keep eating good - it's more about portion control - makes no sense to eat like 3 bowls of salad lol couterproductive - and that's often the hardest part is snacking and fighting against your body which is making you crave cake and bigger portions - because that's what it's use too.
I believe you'll get your weight down since your putting in good effort - Ideal weight for you I'd say - would probably be around 155 - 165 ish. Maybe even a little lighter if you want - but it seems your biology is more " heavier " for lack of a better word - so shooting for 125 may not look so great for your body type, ( like lose a bit of your curviness :/ )
Well, my wife is 5'6", 105lbs. and sexy as can be, but if she was 5'8", 217lbs, she would still be sexy to me because of how she was personality wise. If you want to look healthy, work to the size that makes you happy, not someone else. :)
5' - 98lbs is perfect for carrying around the house.
i'd aim for a BMI (body mass index) of between 20-30 and weight between 130-145 depending on how you carry it. also its healthiest to take your height in inches (in your case 68) and divide it in half so (34 inches) and your waist should be that size or smaller to be considered healthy. measure that at the smallest part near your belly button. I think your main goals should just be being happy with your body yourself and being healthy.
BMI isn't 100% accurate but when a girl hits the 200's it ain't from muscle--it's from fat.
A good weight would be anything from 120(women who are smaller framed)-165lbs
-30 to 60 minutes of cardio a day. You can start out slow with 3 10 minute walks every single day or perhaps sign yourself up for a 5K and begin training (Couch5k is a great program and you can download it into your ipod/itouch) or begin taking aerobic/zumba/whatever fitness classes every other day working up to everyday. Swimming is amazing but I'm just going on the wild assumption that it's not exactly summer where you live
-Don't forget to lift weights. Whether you're trying to tone up or lose weight, why would you wanna be weak ya know? It's really good for you as a woman and it burns more calories
You don't have to come up with some ridiculous goal or whatever, but you should try to be at a healthier weight. I might have been harsh but I'm not going to encourage being at an unhealthy weight.
any size just depends on how you feel about you not what everyone else thinks of u
a good body size makes you feel good about yourself. you are happy to see your body in the mirror and feel confident about yourself. however, if you are overweight (which you are, I'm sorry) I would say it is important to get it down to normal range for health reasons. I would see a doctor-nutritionist and trainer to give you help.
you probably aren't eating right and exercising right.
