I just used the Ideal Weight Calculator found on the web. It asks for gender, age, height, then gives the weight range. I chose female, age 30, 5'6" for the height so it would be similar to the example in the blog. Here are the results.
Based on the Robinson formula (1983), your ideal weight is 130.5 lbs
Based on the Miller formula (1983), your ideal weight is 135.1 lbs
Based on the Devine formula (1974), your ideal weight is 130.7 lbs
Based on the Hamwi formula (1964), your ideal weight is 129.4 lbs
Based on the healthy BMI recommendation, your recommended weight is 114.6 lbs - 154.9 lbs
So, there are some differences in the "stanard" weights based on whichever "expert" you're following.
