To calculate your ideal weight with your height, you can use body mass charts that are present online. However, they would give you a range of heights and may not be specific for you. One example of such a chart is one provided by HealthCheck Systems.
Another way to go about this is to use the general rule of weight. For adults, a person should weigh 100 pounds for the first five feet of their height and then add 5 pounds for every inch above it. For example, if I am five feet 3 inches tall, I should weigh 115 pounds (100+5+5+5). People with a medium frame may use the same value. People with a small frame need to subtract 5% from this value and people with a large frame need to add 5%.  
A more accurate way is to use the Body Mass Index (BMI). It uses your height and current weight and tells you where you stand. So that, rather than just knowing how much you should weigh, it also tells you how far you are from your ideal weight.
The general formula used to calculate BMI is:
  BMI (kg/m2) = Weight in pounds x 703
  height in inches2
The following chart shows ideal limits:
BMI   Interpretation
<18.5   Underweight
18.5-24.9   Normal
25-29.9   Overweight
30 and above  Obese

You can also calculate your BMI automatically from the online BMI Calculator.

Several factors determine ideal weight. While it’s natural to gain weight as we age, the most important factors are actually height, body frame and gender.If you wants to calculate your ideal weight according to your height instantly then there are Weight Loss Calculator to calculate your ideal weight. Taller people should weigh more than shorter people should, generally 2 to 4 per inch in height difference. For example, a woman who is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weight 130 lb, will likely be proportionate to a woman who is 5 feet 9 inches tall and 140 lb. People, especially women tend to gain fat over the years, but until you’re around 40 years old, your age doesn’t play a big factor in determining your ideal weight. Knowing your ideal weight can help you to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Being overweight or underweight can have adverse effects on your heart, bones and muscles.

Weigh and measure yourself. Once, you know your exact height and weight, refer to a weigh chart. A woman who is 5 feet 6 inches tall and between 26 and 59 years old should weigh between 136 and 164 lb. The standard weight for a man who stands at 5 feet 9 inches is between 142 and 176 lb.

Waistlines across the globe are increasing. In 2016, more than 1.9 billion adults were found to be overweight, out of which, around 650 million were found to be obese. This happens due to accumulation of excessive fat in the body.

Obesity is different from being overweight, which simply means weighing too much that it starts affecting your health. When the weight of a person is 10-20 % more than the normal weight defined by standard height/weight chart, it is classified as overweight. When the weight is 20% or higher than the normal weight, it is termed as obesity. This extra weight can come from fat, bone, muscle and/or body water.

How to check whether you are overweight? There are several methods by which you can determine whether you are overweight or not. Know about all the methods.
