Ideal weight?

Anyone know any good websites that tell you a good weight range for your height? I want to find out what a normal weight would be for my height - Obviously I know what I'm comfortable with but you hear lots of different stuff so I just wondered if anyone knew any good trustworthy sites???

Thanks :)

You'll hear a lot of people saying that BMI isn't a perfect way to judge your weight- it doesn't take into account higher than average muscle mass, etc. That being said, it's a great way to get a solid guide for where your weight should be.

I've checked my ideal weight range on a dozen different sites and it really doesn't vary by more than about 2 lbs. I really don't think it matters which one you use.

6:20 - wow! an actual way to "measure" your frame type! I don't know how accurate it is, but still, it's a start. The only problem now is that I can't pretend I'm "big boned" - I'm actually smalled boned and just fat. Oh well, I'm on the path to change that!
