I'm aiming for 20, I'm 23.8 right now and I started at 40.3 so not too far to go now smile

When I was 36 BMI, my goal was 24. Now I've reached that, my goal is 22.

My BMI is 21-22 usually. I would love it to stay at 20, but my body has other ideas!

I am aiming for 23. Just because this is really where I feel happy and good about myself.

I was down to 21, and looked gaunt. I carry all my weight on boobs and belly, so get very skinny arms and legs and face.

Currently at 26 (hate myself, 2 stone gain through a course of steroids 5 months ago that is proving tricky to shift - but before that I had maintained a 6 stone weight loss without difficulty for 18 months,)

So I think 23 is where I would like to be.

I'm heading for the following...

My current aim is - Weight 56kg/123lb/8st 11lbs BMI 24
My Dr said I should be - 53kg/116.6lb/8 4lb BMI 23
I used to be - 52kg/114.4lb/8 2lb BMI 22

Currently - a whole load more than that, so will be happy with anything approaching 'normal' smile

My BMI is 21....happy enough with that but would prefer to get it to the low end say at 20.

I'm at 22.3, but I would like it be 21 for vanity reasons! I've reached the weight where I plateau though. I find it almost impossible to drop below it. It was easy in my 20s. So, I suspect that trying to diet down to a BMI of 21 is a futile exercise.

I'm aiming for 22.5. I am currently 23, started at 34. To begin with I aimed for 25, but then realised I needed to lose a bit more.

It's not non-sensical for a huge majority of the population. If you are seriously in training and very muscly, then it becomes less reliable. But, let's face it, most of us aren't elite athletes or weightlifters.

I look my best at around 26, and my worst at around 27, even though there's two dress sizes between those two numbers on me.

I don't believe in BMI - you can build muscle, tone up, drop dress sizes and still have the same number. Seems nonsensical to me.

I'd be happy with anything within healthy. But the weight range I aim for works out between 22 and 24.

Unfortunately, it's currently about 26.

I look best around 21 as long as I'm toned - I'm tall with minimal curves.

I look best at 24 anything less and I look quite gaunt- I'm tall and broad iyswim

What BMI are you all aiming for? I ask because I am unsure of where to set my target and wonder what sort of BMI people think is 'perfect.' I know there is a range but are you happy to aim for the top of the 'healthy' bmi range or do you really want to be near the bottom?
