There is no absolute answer for everyone.  The variety in our body shapes adds beauty and interest to our world.  HOWEVER, there are some standard guidelines in this standard height weight chart to determine if you are at a weight which puts you at high health risk.
Use this standard weight chart for a general idea of where you should be with your weight.
I can't tell you how many times, during the years I was overweight, that I had people tell me, "You're not fat, you're big boned."  So I tried to believe them, but I know my body didn't feel good the way it was.

An amazing thing happened when I made my major body change several years ago.  Nobody tells me I have big bones anymore.  In fact, now I hear things like, "You have small bones," "Your shoulders are so narrow," "Your rib cage is so small."  Did my bones change that much?  No, not at all.  I just got rid of all the layers of fat surrounding my bone structure using the amazing Oxycise! exercises to lose weight.

My point in sharing that experience is to encourage you to be realistic when you look at this weight chart and are trying to determine if you should be at the lower or higher end of the weight range for your height.  You'll notice there is quite a spread in weight charts for any given height.  Physicians use a caliper to measure the bones on the side of your elbow to determine your frame size, however, you can get a decent measurement by using your fingers as "calipers."

When all things are considered, you know if you feel good at your weight.

WEIGHT CHART
Metropolitan Life Insurance

This weight chart can help in estimating normal weight for average people.  These tables were developed by the insurance industry to predict optimal weight for longevity and have come to be considered as the ideal weight chart.

These weight charts are meant to be used only as a guide.  You must take into account your particular skeletal structure and muscle mass.  If you are a muscular athlete and have an average amount of body fat, you will weigh more than the average given on the height weight chart for your sex, height, and frame size.  Or if your bones are small and you are not particularly muscular, your ideal weight might be on the low end of the range.

To approximate your frame size bend your forearm at a 90 degree angle.  Place the thumb and index finger of your other hand on the two prominent bones on either side of the elbow.  Measure the space between your fingers on a ruler and compare with the height weight chart below listing elbow measurements for medium-framed men and women.  Lower measurements indicate a small frame and higher measurements indicate a large frame.

This weight chart does not account for key individual factors such as the amount of body fat and its location on the body.  These factors, more than weight alone, influence health.

The following weight chart reflects weights at ages 25 to 59 years based on lowest mortality. All measurements are without clothing or shoes.
