Hi! I'm also 5'5 and am aiming to hit 115. I have a body fat scale, so I can roughly figure out how much fat is on my body. An "athletic" range is 15-18%, so I calculated what my total weight would be assuming the non-fat portion doesn't change.

Here's how it figures.... I'm about 24% body fat at 128 lb. This means I have 30.7 lbs of fat, 97.3 lb of lean body mass. If I multiply 97.3 by 1.18 (18% more), I'm right at 115.

Hope this helps!

hi everyone!

i am at my goal weight of 120lbs...i've lost the first 10 lbs...i was tipping at 130 last march....i'm 5'5" and have a small bone structure...

i;ve lost weight in a very slow and controlled, healthy calorie range (around 2300 a day to support my 5 days of exercise M&W&F running 5 miles + 20 minute yoga and T&THR TJam sculpt & abs)...

i'm 38 and in my lifetime i have been down at 115lbs, but i know back then (20's) i did it not the right way--i just restricted my calorie range and hoped that running everyother day would make me lose weight...it did in my 20's...but made me feel quite sickly....

now that i feel like i've mastered a clean diet and maintain a maintainable amount of exercise (i've always lost to extreme 'anything'), i wonder how low i can go with my weight without being unhealthy...i'm thinking 115, but i don't know...is this possible?
