About Recommended Weight Ranges
If you are a woman and are 5' 8" in height your healthy weight can be as little as 126 pounds or as much as 167 pounds. That's quite a range of variance - but what applies to each of us can differ significantly when it comes to body weight.
For example, a woman who has a small body frame size might appear quite heavy if they weighed 167 pounds. On the opposite end, a 5' 8" woman might appear gaunt and frail if they have a large body frame size and only weigh 126 pounds.
The body's frame size is a central factor in the amounts that we can weigh and still be within our healthy range of pounds. Muscle mass percentile in comparison to body fat is also a central effecting factor for weight.
For example, if a woman that is 5' 8" tall is a weight lifter and she has a medium sized body frame - and if she weighs 175 pounds, she may still be within a healthy range because muscle mass weighs heavier than fat mass.
When the situation involves pounds - it should always be amendable to suit personal needs, age and condition of current health.
