As a nurse I can tell you that most of our height/weight/BMI charts have been skewed by the large number of obese people that go into it. That being said, you need to be practical. That 132 - 172 is a range. If you are small boned, you should be closer to the lower figure. If you are large boned, then you should be closer to the higher figure. Also don't forget you are used to seeing your fat self and so may look emaciated to yourself now. The important thing is that you feel healthy and comfortable with the way you look. The charts are just a guideline. If you feel good, look good and your MD says you are healthy then just start maintaining. I am so impressed with you. It has taken me far longer to lose my 120 pounds with many setbacks. I think I might try your 'less than 20 carbs' and see if I can stick to that for awhile so that I can lose more than 1/2 - 1 pound a week. All I can say again is CONGRATULATIONS!!! You are my hero Smile
