These are some facts that I heard about ideal weight and ideal body parameters. Maybe you will find smth usefull or add something you know Smile Also it would be nice, if you share your current and dream parameters as I will do in the end of the post.

The perfect body parameters is a subjective matter. Everybody heard of 90-60-90. But, primarily, they say, waist to hip ratio is most important for a good figure.
The excellent waist to hip ratio should be from 0,67 up to 0,75. Here is where you can count yours. and this is the correct way to measure you body

About upper leg circumference in its largest part, they say it should be 2/3 of the size of your waist.

One more important parameter is BMI. BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measurement of body fat based on height and weight. A healthy BMI score is between 20 and 25. A score below 20 indicates that you may be underweight; a value above 25 indicates that you may be overweight.
This is nice BMI Calculator which also calculates percentile you are it for your age group.
This is standart BMI classificaion:

Underweight = <18.5
Normal weight = 18.5–24.9
Overweight = 25–29.9
Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

Percent of body fat is usually measured as a percentage of your total body composition. It may be a more important measurement than weight alone, as people can appear thin, yet be too fat. The ideal body fat percentage for women between 30 and 50 years is 15 to 23 percent. Here is the way to count it from your measures

My body parameters.

My body parameters are 90-71-102. And my current waist to hip ratio is 0,69. I want to have 88-60-88 parameters, as I once had. For that I have be about 48 kilos with my 164 height. Smile

My upper legs, in their biggest parts, are about 57 cm. I want them to be about 42-45 cm.

My BMI is 23,4 (for my current weight 62,6 kg). Currently I'm is 40th percentile for my age group. I want about 18 BMI (for weight 48 kg).

My body fat percentage determined by my parameters is about 13%.

That would be nice to fit jeans with 26-27 jean sizes and now I can wear only 30 and higher.

I hope to get my dream parameters until this summer 2013. Hope you will get yours too! Smile
We can do this!
