Great! My utimate goal has always been 150, so I'm not too far off the mark. When I was 23 (23 years ago) I weighed 157 and looked great. So I'll just keep on working.

Thank you for the info.

Hi there; target weight according to my info for you Karlotta would be 146 lbs. I really err on the side of caution with most of these charts, all generic. They do not for example take into account, ethnicity, age, activity levels, metabobolic rate...all of which are factors. As you're quite tall, and from my own experience I'd be quite happy that you set your target weight at 156 lbs. These are my records only, not Sparks' who may take a different approach. If you google height to weight ratio, you'll find this and many others. Wish you success,
Dave

This is my info from the website. So, how much weight should I lose according to this?

Gender Female
Weight 185 lbs
Height 5 ft 8 in

Measurements:
Waist (at narrowest) 31 in
Hip (at widest) 42 in
Neck (at narrowest) 13 in


----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Body Fat 495 / (1.29579 - .35004 * log10(Waist + Hip - Neck) + .22100 * log10(Height)) - 450
33% = 495 / (1.29579 - .35004 * log10(31in * 2.54cm/in + 42in * 2.54cm/in - 13in * 2.54cm/in) + .22100 * log10(68in * 2.54cm/in)) - 450
Fat Mass Body Fat % * Weight
61 lbs = 33% * 185 lbs
Lean Mass Weight - Fat Mass
124 lbs = 185 lbs - 61 lbs

Lean Body Mass Estimate Calculator Formulas

Gender Female
Weight 130 lbs
Height 5 ft 6 in


----------------------------------------
----------------------------------------

Lean Mass (1.07 * Weightkg) - (148 * Weightkg2 / Heightcm2)
99 lbs = (1.07 * (130lbs / 2.2lbs/kg)) - (148 * (130lbs / 2.2lbs/kg)2 / (66in * 2.54cm/in)2
Lean Mass % Lean Mass / Weight
76% = 99 lbs / 130 lbs
Fat Mass Weight - Lean Mass
31 lbs = 130 lbs - 99 lbs
Fat Mass % 100% - Lean Mass %
24% = 100% - 76%

Is there a math formula to figure it all out? I know a person can go to a gym and have it measured but it seems I've seen a formula, I just can't remember what it is. Thanks!!

Thanks for the information, it is sometimes hard to understand.

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. "
Thomas Jefferson

Thank you for posting this! I hate it when people tell me that I need to weigh a certain amount when I know it's impossible because of my amount of muscle.

Thanks for clarifying! emoticon

GENERAL BODY FAT PERCENTAGE CATEGORIES

CLASSIFICATION WOMEN % FAT MEN % FAT
ESSENTIAL FAT 10-12% 2-4%
ATHLETES 14-20% 6-13%
FITNESS 21-24% 14-17%
ACCEPTABLE 25-31% 18-25%
OBESE 32% PLUS 25% PLUS

When one declares that they want to “lose weight”, what they often mean is that they want to lose fat.
Body fat % explained: First your body fat percentage is simply the % of fat your body contains. If you weigh 150 lbs. and 10% fat, it means that your body consists of 15 lbs. of fat and 135 lbs. lean body mass [bone, muscle, organ tissue, blood and everything else].
A certain amount of fat is essential to bodily functions. Fat regulates body temperature, cushions and insulates organs and tissues, and is the main form of the body’s energy storage.
Knowing your body fat percentage can also help you determine if your weight loss goals are realistic. Remember, weight loss doesn’t always mean fat loss. For example:

Let’s say you’re a 130# woman with 23% body fat, and your goal is to “lose 20 lbs”.

Initial body fat: 130# x 0.23= 30# body fat

Lean body mass: 130# total-30% fat= 100# lean body mass [bones, organs and all else]

Goal: 130#-20#= 110 lbs.
As you can see, the goal of losing 20 lbs. is neither realistic nor healthy. At 110 lbs. this woman still requires 100# of lean body mass [bones, organs, etc] but would only be carrying 10#, or only 9% body fat. As the chart indicates this is a dangerously low percentage.
A better goal might be for this woman to reduce her body fat from 23% to 18%. In this case:
130# x 0.18=23% body fat
100# lean body mass+23# = 123# goal weight
So, for this individual to achieve a lean, but healthy 18% fat, she would need to lose only 7 lbs. of fat, reducing her weight from her current 130-123 lbs. Losing more than 7 lbs means losing lean body mass [usually metabolically-active muscle tissue], which is clearly not desirable.
So, before you decide that you need to “lose weight”, remember to consider that “weight” consists of both lean body mass and body fat. Try to keep your weight-loss goals realistic, and remember, keep the calorie-burning muscle, and lose only the fat.
