    5’1″ 130lbs, the only reason I would loose 5lbs is to fit more comfortably in my jeans, I truely dislike paying for new jeans when I have some really awesome pairs that are just a tad bid snug around the waist.

    5’0″ 110lbs, would like to “tone it up”. I want a tighter butt, and I wanna see a few abs…. otherwise, I’m completely comfortable.

    I could stand to lose a few pounds, but I’m somewhat okay as long as I don’t gain anymore weight.

    Does anyone ever feel like they’re losing weight and feel good until they check on the scale?  Definitely has happened to me in the past and I’m feeling that way again.  Thank god I don’t have a scale here to check.  I’m scared.  Hah

    I’m 5’4″ and 146 lbs. I put on a bunch of weight after I had to take Prednisone two years ago, and my crap thyroid makes it tough to lose weight. I’d like to get down to 135 and am tracking my food religiously (and, of course, exercising) to get there. 

    When I was younger, I was always very, very slim. I think my heaviest weight before the Prednisone experience was 120, and to be honest, I looked kind of skeletal even though I’m small-framed. You could see my ribs clearly through my skin, and my hipbones and collarbones were prominent. Not a good look for me. I have hips and a butt, so I’ll never be a size 2, 4, whatever…and I’m cool with that! I just want to lose a little bit of weight so I can be healthier overall (and more comfortable with the number on the scale). 

    ETA: Even though I technically fall into the “overweight” category, I’ve found that more men check me out now. No one really gave me a second glance when I was super-thin and fit the “ideal” body type…it’s kind of interesting to see the difference in people’s reactions, especially since I expected the opposite (I expected disgust from other people now that I’m heavier).

    I am 5’3″, 125lbs. I just recently lost weight, and I don’t want to lose any more. I do, however, want to gain a significant amount of muscle and lose around 4% bodyfat, which will end up me weighing about the same or more even. 🙂

    That said, If I stayed exactly the way I am now, I’d be pretty happy.

    5’7, 160lbs give or take a bit. I would like to lose 10lbs, I would be totally happy with that, but I am just happy to not be gaining any more.

    Overall I am happy but I have a range that I like to stay within.  On my wedding day in April I was within my range.  Today I am at the top of my range.  I am admittedly very concerned that I might go beyond my range.  I’m 45 years old and a size 8.  But being at the top of my range, some of those 8s are feeling uncomfortably tight.  Six years ago I was a size 14/16.  I prefer my size now.  I’d like to lose 5 lbs. to be comfortably within my range.

    I’ve noticed people relate to me and treat me differently at different weights too.  Unfortunately, the most difference is in how supportive other women are of me.  I’m good with where I am now, but would like to tone up (not lose).

    I’ll preface this with I am clinically underweight, have been ever since I was born, but I am healthy, there is nothing wrong with me.

    I’m 5’0″ on a good day and 98lbs (roughly).

    I’m extremely happy with my weight. Beyond liking to be in better shape (I couldn’t run a mile if I tried) I wouldn’t change a thing.

    I’m 5’9 or so and about 150.

    I’m OK with it – I have “thunder thighs” that are becoming more toned as I run more, but all my weight goes into my hips and thighs and butt instead of my waist, which my husband loves. So I’m totally ok with it cause he thinks it’s hot 😉 I was most thin at 130 but I’m not sure my body will ever be at that point again, I was working out 2-3 hours after school in a sports program and I just don’t have the time for that now.

     

    ETA: I’m also in the best shape of my life since HS as far as cardio and strength – I may have larger thighs but I can also run miles at a time and my stamina is so much better than it was a year or two ago, so rather than focus on losing weight I’m focusing on staying in shape!

    Right now my weight is the lowest it’s been in 3 years. I gained about 30 pounds in 2 years of dating Darling Husband and he gain as well. 

    We both lost weight for the wedding, so I’m down to 182, and I feel better at this weight, but not comfortable at all. I still have a hard time finding and feeling comfortable in a lot of clothing. But I’m working on it, we took a week break but we are heading back into the gym tonight. I will not regain the weight I lost, I refuse.

    I’m 5’8″, 115 pounds. I’m comfortable with that, I’ve weighed about the since high school.

    I wouldn’t mind gaining some muscle. Right now I’m “skinny fat”, I would like to be “skinny fit”, but I need to get motivated to work out!

    This is what I mean by “skinny fat” and “skinny fit” – http://pinterest.com/pin/206180489160134963/

    I want my tummy to be more tone. and my butt. I miss my 20 year old butt. and i seriously gotta tone my arms. I dont really weigh myself, I am guessing i am maybe 120ish and i am 5’2. i am at my heavier side i can tell though cause my booty is 37 1/2 inches and it is usually 36! I look good in clothes but i dance Brazilian Samba ( in a thong bikini) so i have higher standards:p

    @abbyful: so sad, after seeing that picture, I am totally skinny fat.

    ETA: I used to be a rock climber and had the skinny fit body, but now, after moving in with Darling Husband 3 years ago, there are no rock climbing places close to us, and I have no one to climb with, so I have kinda stopped (which makes me sad!) but I seriously want to get back into it just for that butt!
