My goal is 52kg, 144lbs at 5'7 

 

But there's something magical about getting 49kg, 108lbs so.... no, goblin brain, stop, 52 is fine.

My ultimate goal is 100 at 5'8", but I recognize that's going to be very difficult. I think if I can get into the 120's I'll feel a little better.

I'm around 173cm / 5'8", and my current goal is 59kg or 130lbs, but muscular af.

 

We'll see whether I'm capable of actually being satisfied with that, though. I might go full ED Brain. It's been known to happen.

My height is 1.72.5 cm  ( 5' 8'' ) and my ideal weight is around BMI 20 - BMI 21 <3

 

Also, its a BMI that keeps the face pretty,

 

in older ages from age 25+ the collagen in the female skin starts to deteriorate thats why the first wrinkles / thin lines start to appear at ages 25, and the thinner you get the thinner your skin becomes as well from malnutrition and as a result the face doesnt look as pretty when you are in very low weights, there is a word in English I believe is gaunt? When the face doesnt look fresh and nice.

 

Other than the face issue, I like BMI 20 because I want to have a bit of meat on me, not too much and not too little, so I think BMI 20 - BMI 21 is a good mixture of looking relatively thin (when you are 5' 8 '') without looking skeletal, as Im not after the skeletal aesthetic.

 

And yes, EDs are EDs, but at the same time I think its good for the person if they are an adult, to have a perspective about how they want to look or not.

Im 5'7.5"
I was 121lbs. Then I had kids. I hate my body. I went all the way up to 195lbs... and now Im stuck at 149lbs.
I dream of going back down to 130lbs, but I promise if I get there my only thoughts will be "just 10 more". But I wont go past 119lbs, thats a promise.

5'7 with goal weight of 115
When I was like 13 I read that under 120 would be considered underweight for someone of my height and it's been an obsession ever since

I'm 5'8”. My goal is 138-147lbs (for some reason I've had 144 in my head forever). I know this still "high" for a GW (at least for MPA), but I'm very large framed and naturally carry a lot of muscle, and when I reached mid 150s a few years ago I had a thigh gap and visible chest bones. Also my ED past is known so I can't get much lower without people starting to pull me up over it.
