Right, I know someone like that. They just don't know how blessed they are :)

I work with a girl who fluctuates between 94 and 97 pounds.

Yea lemme say that again. 94 and 97 pounds.

She's SUPER thin. The worst part is, she'll down two cheeseburgers like its nothing, and wont ever put on an ounce. She's continually tried putting on pounds and can never manage to do so.

Don't we all wish we had that problem?

I absolutley agree with FitKayti. It depends on your body type. I wouldn't aim for the lowest end of your weight range either. Go for a mid range, it's more healthy and your body is more apt to be comfortable there than at the low end.

That does seem low, but that's the LOWEST healthy weight for your height. Even one pound would make you underweight. BMI is just a guideline and is not entirely accurate for everyone. There are a lot of factors involved. How tall are you? Are you muscular? How much body fat percentage would you have? You have to figure out your "happy weight": a healthy number that you can maintain with little fluctuation and that works with your lifestyle.

You don't know what's right for your body until you get there. For me, I was happiest about 5 pounds above the midpoint of my healthy range (still within it, though.) You just have to find what's right for you. Just shoot for a healthy BMI and work from there.

P.S. Congrats on your progress so far!

I looked at my BMI and my healthy range starts at 107 pounds. Right now in my 279 mind I think this is too small. I don't want to be a size zero (yeah that exists). What do you guys think?
