    Age: 30

    Height: 5’9″

    Highest: 142

    Lowest: 118

    Average: 130

    Current: 135 – all though I’m much smaller now then I was at 118 pounds.  Crossfit and running have gotten me in to shape and muscle weighs more then fat 🙂  Would like to be down to 130 though…still have some fat in the belly area, always the hardest to get rid of, ugh!

    lowesr weight depends on when you define “adult”. I was 110 through high school, when I was dieting most of the time. I gained a good deal of weight during college, and graduated college 135. I haven’t been much below 135 since, let’s say 133.

    Highest weight was 2 1/2 years ago after an ankle injury and stress eating. I was 157 then. I’ve  gotten down to 135 since, but have gained some of it back. I’m at 148 today.

    lowest weight: 98 pounds. I was very, very ill with Crohn’s disease and days away from being hospitalized. I also dropped down to about 105 when I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer but not from my treatments, I was just super depressed and not eating and living on Starbucks lattes. My lowest non-sick weight was about 110.

    highest weight:135Lbs

    Average weight: 120 pounds so long as I’m flare free from Crohn’s. If I have a bad flare, I drop weight very quickly. My healthy weight range is anywhere from 117-127.

    Age: 28 

    Height: 5’11”

    Highest: 250 (struggling with medication side effect issues, and also I’ve fallen off the fitness wagon and am trying desperately to get back on!)

    Lowest: 155 (in highschool, when I had mono and lost a lot of weight. I am tall and have a larger frame so I actually looked kind of sickly)

    I wouldn’t really say that I have an average as my weight has been all over the place the last few years. I will lose some and then gain some back, etc. 

    I am seriously trying to get the issues under control and get back in to excercising as Darling Husband and I are planning to TTC next year and I want to be at a lower, healthier weight. I’d be happy at around 180-190, which on me is about a size 14

    depends on when you say adult, at 16 I weighed 140 lbs but at 18 weighed 165 lbs
    Tough to say, I was 180-190 for awhile then got up to 230 and been around there for the last few years (±10 lbs)
    Current: 227, trying to lose some weight

    I’m usually around 143 lbs

    ETA: I’m actually not sure if that’s correct – I’m starting to wonder if my kg to lbs converter is converting accurately.  I’ve been reading the rest of the thread, and most some of the highest weights of other bees my height are lower than my lowest weight, and at my lowest weight I looked like a bit of a lollipop (large head, skinny body).  I suppose weight distribution can make quite a significant difference between individuals, but I am still suspicious about my mathematics.

    : 173lbs This was when I was a sophomore in high school and struggling with pressure from school and work and stress ate a lot. Started some unhealthy disordered eating after this for several years.
     139lbs I was this weight when I started college as a freshman. I actually don’t really remember what I looked like; I was more obsessed with the number. I know it’s bad to think that way, but wearing size 3 pants felt like a pretty big deal. 
     About 160? I think. This is about where I’m at now and I’m really working to get down to 145-150, which is about where my gyno wants me to be.
