16-17.5, I think I’m prettiest in that range. I don’t like going lower, otherwise I feel gross. I don’t like going higher, for obvious reasons.

There was an old person of Dean,

Who dined on one pea, and one bean; 
For he said, 'More than that,
Would make me too fat,'
That cautious old person of Dean.

I don't have an ideal BMI. People look different at the same BMI. What looks good on me would look like death on others, so I don't have an ideal.

I think my goal is in the 12s so I can get lower than I once was, but anything 16-17 I can get away with living a normal life while being considered “skinny” by others

16 is where I like to be, but I can't stay there, I get bingey and have too many unpleasant side effects. Right now I'm maintaining in low 17s and feel alot better.
