When it comes to calculating your weight and working out whether or not you are medically classed as overweight or underweight, your age does not play a relevant role, so forget about the fact that you are 46 years old.
You are a female and you stand at a height of five feet and three inches, therefore your "normal" weight should be 54.43-58.06 Kilograms or 120-128 pounds or 8 stone and 7.99 pounds. These weights along with your height when used in a BMI calculation put you in the healthy range with a Body Mass Index of 21.11. BMI calculators can be found on the Internet just by conducting a simple Google search for BMI calculator. Once you have found one, enter your height and weight and click calculate and the results will tell you what your BMI is and what category you are in. A BMI of under 18.5 is considered underweight and a BMI of 30 to 40 is considered to be obese. An ideal BMI number should be between 18.5 and 25.
However you should not just use the BMI calculation to determine if you are overweight because the BMI system has some great limitations. First of all, it does not take into account how much muscle you have (which as you probably know weighs more than fat). BMI is particularly inaccurate for younger people who are quite fit or athletic because they have a higher muscle mass which tends to make them overweight by BMI standards. Secondly, BMI does not take into account your frame size for example, you might be a perfectly healthy person with a large body frame but the BMI scale will class you as overweight. And finally, BMI does not account for any loss of height through aging which will cause the weight to increase without any consideration of height loss when getting older.
A healthy weight range is 115 to 145 lbs.
Sorry everyone but women in the 30-60 age bracket, 5'3'' or there abouts, should weigh no more than 135 pounds max. This is the healthiest bracket for you. A 10 year old child weighing 130 lbs. Is criminal, cut the junk and fast food immediately in that child or they'll have you to thank when they develop serious heart problems. Join a gym and get your body moving or just walk, walk, walk.
Ummmmmm. Well then dearies, for an average TEN YEAR OLD the maximum is 130 pounds. So for a woman FOUR TIMEs their age I would say about 170 MAX.
This is a question that only the lady can answer. At one time my weight was 396 . I am now 225 and feel great but doc says get to 165. I have not been at 165 since I was 12 so that is doubtful. At my current size which is from 58in waist to 38 in I no longer take insulin for diabetes and my blood pressure is coming into line. So get to where you feel good and comfy and to heck with all the hype
If you are 46 years old then your age will not help you to calculate weight because age is not used to calculate weight after 18 years of age. If you are woman with a height of five feet and three inches then your normal weight should be 120-128 pounds or 54.43-58.06 Kg.
I am 46 years old I weigh 156 pounds am I to fat
Probably about 140 would be safe and easy to maintain, but no more.
I think a woman this age should weigh 150lbs max
How much should a 46 year old man that s 5 foot 2 inches weigh?
Your age of 46 years has no role in the calculation of weight because after 18 years of age, only height and weight are taken in to consideration due to stoppage of growth. If you are female having a height of five feet and three inches then your average weight should be 54.43-58.06 Kg or 120-128 pounds.
Being overweight at this age can have serious impacts on health. To get normal weight, you should avoid fats, bakery foods, fast foods etc. Eat according to your daily routine activities because getting more than required calories at this age will increase you weight. Go for daily brisk walk to keep yourself fit.
