Healthy Weight Calculator for Women...

Is your weight healthy? Use the calculator below to find out.

Height in feet: inches:

(Note: You must enter a number in the inches box. If you are exactly 5 ft. or 6 ft., enter "0.")

Healthy Weight in pounds:

If your actual body weight falls within 10% (above or below) the weight calculated, you are within a healthy weight range!

Again, this is only an estimate and is meant to give people an idea of what they should aim for.  If you do not match this weight exactly, don't be alarmed.  Please note that this guideline does not account for increased muscle mass, pregnancy, illness, etc.

Try comparing this number with your BMI (if you don't know your BMI, check out the BMI Calculator) to see where you fall.  If you are above your recommended healthy weight and BMI, you may want to consider changing your lifestyle to incorporate healthier eating habits and increased physical activity.  Remember, always consult your physician first.

Note: Please be advised that this calculator is not intended for those under the age of 18, under 5 ft. tall and 7 ft. tall and over. This is due to the fact that those under the age of 18 are most likely still growing and weight fluctuations are to be expected. If you are under the age of 18, less than 5 ft. tall and 7 ft. and over, please do not use the calculator. You will receive an inaccurate weight. Thank you for your understanding.
