Buffyfan84 saidIs their really an accurate height/weight chart available? It gets confusing when they [charts] refer to small, medium, and large frames.
I'm around 5'8", and close to 210 lbs. I would like to get to around 145 lbs. Although, I'm told that is way to skinny. Any takers?
I have no idea what sized frame you have, but would think 145 lbs will be pretty light. I guess it is okay if you like the lean look, and have small bones. If your bones are anywhere bigger, you will look emancipated. Also, considering you are starting from being heavy, it might not be that easy to achieve that aim. Perhaps you can post a pic of your body frame, so that we have a better idea.
Personally, I am about your height, but weigh in at about 165 lbs. While I am not lean-built anymore, my bones are very small. I started at 117 lbs at 18, and only got to 145 lbs. in my mid-twenties.
