I guess bmi 20 or 21.  You look healthy but slim.  I don't understand why people have to criticize this thread. If they don't like it then stay out?

 Everyone has got the right to post ! Thats why these forums are here for ! You ask - you get answers.Everyone has got opinion . When you post questions you should be prepared to get positive AND negative replies . Maybe people should think about that before posting if they cant deal with negative replies .

I don't think she has said she can't deal with it.  And I realize you have the right to post.. it doesn't mean its pleasant.  I suppose everyone has the right to judge and criticize others but I choose not to.  Meh.. just my opinion.  I don't really care though. 

125 MAX!!

Okay!  No bashing of the skinnies.  Apparently no opposing opinions at all!  What about overweight people?  Can we bash them?

Wow, thanks everyone for all the feedback :), whether positive or negative.I realize that you can't let others determine for you what is a good and healthy weight and body type for yourself. But sometimes it's still nice to hear what others think, since it's not always easy to be objective when looking at your own body.

You're kidding right?
There are numerous threads that trash anyone with a healthy BMI on this site, and those threads are looked at as completely acceptable. If it was the other way around and they were bashing overweight people, they probably would have been deleted.

 Maybe you're just being over-sensitive : )

Lots of posts get bashed, whether they are by/about skinny folk or fat folk. If you can't weed out the answer you want, and recognize the view of those who disagree, the forums will not be as useful (in my opinion).

ashattack: You look fine. There have been a several of these posts recently ('guess my weight' 'Am I fat?' 'Should I keep losing'), and they're almost always by those you are at a healthy weight, or underweight.
I completely understand wanting a different, more objective opinion, just thought this might clarify why many of us prefer not to participate in the guessing games.

 Thank you for this useful explanation. I'm new to this site and these forums and I didn't realize this.  I apologize if I offended anyone and I understand I bit more why this thread got the replies it did.

 I call them " ATTENTION SEEKERS" ha ha Laughing

You know no one is going to give you a straight answer, right? I've seen this happen over and over, people guess way under to avoid hurting the person's feelings. Whatever you weigh, that is what you weigh. If you need a reality check, take measurements. They don't lie.

and if you're going to "weed out the answer you want," why bother asking the question?

.....ahhhh  are you going to fill us in on who guessed right?  i think i came most close!!!

will you tell us your weight?

ETA:  I hope my guesstimate was helpful.  I have no clue if you workout ect or what, you just seem slim so 117-119 was my best guess for 5'6" a BMI of around 19.   

it looks like about 125-128 to me...a nice thin, but healthy weight.

After causing all this drama and snarkiness (some of it quite justified, in my humble opinion), you are a total tease if you don't tell us who guessed right.

 

I'm not kidding. Stunts like that drive me up a friggin' wall. So please don't leave us hanging.

Ya you're right, a stupid thing to do, to  bother asking a question when looking for a particular answer that I would want to hear. The answer is 123. Thanks for posting everyone; regardless of what's been said i appreciate it.
