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.

That's why our latest program offers a holistic approach that considers food, activity, mindset and sleep, so you can focus on all aspects of your health for your weight loss and wellness journey.

WW 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.
