How much should I weigh in kg? Find your healthy weight for your height

Knowing your healthy weight range can be a good starting point for reaching your weight loss goals. It can help you create a realistic plan that's tailored to your body type and lifestyle.

To determine your healthy weight range, a number of tools are available, including online calculators, charts, or advice from a healthcare professional. It's important to remember that your weight range can vary based on factors such as age, sex, and body composition. As a result, the range should be viewed as a guide rather than a strict rule.

WeightWatchers® can help you reach your weight loss goals by providing you with resources and support. Our programs are designed to help you adopt a healthy lifestyle that's easy to maintain.

Our programs include learning about portion sizes, beginner exercises, and understanding the mindset of weight loss and emotional eating. These are all important factors that can contribute to your success in reaching a healthy weight range and maintaining it.

How much should I weigh?

There are several factors that influence our weight, for example age, sex, muscle mass, genetics, ethnicity and physical activity levels - just to name a few. Whilst many of us are looking for that magic number on the scale, the truth is that there's no one “ideal” weight that we should be aiming for.

Yes, maintaining a healthy weight is important for our health and wellbeing and lowers our risk of disease, however it's important to know that it's not the only measure of success. Paying attention to non-scale victories (NSV’s) or other health outcomes such as waist circumference measurements, or improvements in our fitness levels is just as important as they help to reinforce healthy habits. When it comes to your weight and health, what's most important is being the healthiest version you can be.

WeightWatchers' Healthy Weight Ranges are general recommendations for men and women. If you have specific health issues or fall outside our height ranges, we recommend that you discuss a suitable weight range with your GP.

BMI exception: As everyone is built differently, and some people may have a heavier muscle mass than others, a BMI reading may not always be the best indicator of weight status. Use the BMI as a guide and if you are concerned, ask your doctor for help.
