    If you have been told your weight is too low, get rid of the diet pills and exercise to lose the last 10 pounds. You will be doing your body a great benefit. Eat healthy. A body that is undernourished will not let go of whatever resources it has and you won't lose weight.

    I am the same height as you with a medium-sized frame (my wrist measures 7").  I have weighed close to 200 pounds (NOT pregnant) and as little as 129 during my adult years (20-current). 

    I am terrified of letting myself get back to the larger person I was.
    At age 33 and 135 pounds, I looked great and was in good physical condition from exercise.
    At age 51 and 135 pounds, I looked emaciated, even though I was in good physical condition from exercise.    Age DOES make a difference, and too thin is attractive to very few.

    At 60, I know I am about 15 pounds overweight for my frame and age, and also know that getting to that weight and keeping it will be a struggle.  My body settles in comfortably just above where I want it to be. 

    I know all too well that to lose that weight, I need to eat healthy and exercise smart.
    SO DO YOU.

    Opinions differ. Doctors categorise women into large, small and medium frames, then approximate on the charts given and match the "symptoms" that go with the ailment. Obese is a category which applies to anyone who is suffering from heart ailments and are just cuddly. The following will help you monitor your exact body weight as you age. So keep them handy :).

    By the way, take heart (not literally) Rubens admired large ladies, and they were called "Voluptuous" not fat. Be comfortable with yourself and you are doing a great job :).
