Veg*n's have the stereotype of being skinny and underweight. I know this not to be true for all veg*ns or even most of us. But I'd like to know what catagory the VBers here fall into. Be honest! And if anyone has a link to a study done about this, I'd appreciate it if you'd post it, TIA! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:">

Technically, I fall toward the low-end of what's considered "normal" for my height, so I chose "just right" in the poll.<br><br><br><br>
But I'm small framed, and I tend to think I'm just a teeny tiny bit overweight.

If you use the bmi, then I'm just on the border between 'just right' and 'overweight'. I'm certainly not skinny anyway! I'm not sure about what frame I have, by one website I was small-framed, but I don't really believe that. I don't really know what other ways there are to judge weight except for the bmi, but that's not meant to be the be all and end all is it?

Don't take BMI's too seriously - your bone structure plays a part too. According to my BMI I am borderline overweight but am only barely back up to a weight where my doctor doesn't have a fit when she sees me (I want to only see your collarbones! Not every pair of ribs, too! Your arms look like sticks, girl - I want you to buy cake on the way home!")<br><br><br><br>
So I ticked just right.<br><br><br><br>

I'm about right. I weigh 11st. i have no idea what that is in pounds, but it's 70 kilos-ish I think that's 144lb by my (crap) estimates. I'm about 5'72 or so I'm told. i used one of those BMI index thingies taken from the health section of the daily express not so long ago to work that out.

I am slightly underweight according to most older weight tables, my BMI is in the normal range however.<br><br><br><br>
I voted "I am just right, thanks" though, because this is the weight I feel best at. I have been at many weight levels throughout my life, so I know what I am talking about from experience, and nobody can convince me that I "should" be at a different weight. Especially not books that also preach that meat and dairy are health foods.<br><br><br><br>
ETA: I'm about 155-160 lbs @ 6'1".

I'm right in the middle of my proper weight bracket. I'm totally okay with my weight, though I'd like to trim down a little bit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I'm bordering on the lower side of normal (BMI of 20), but I would love to be in better physical shape <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I'm in the middle of a healthy weight range (120 lbs) for my height (5'3") on most charts I've seen. I also have a healthy BMI (21, I think?). I am trying to get in shape and tone up, which may result in the loss of a few pounds. I may have lost a bit 2 years ago when I went veg, but it evened out as my body adjusted to the change.

I'm of a normal weight. I've always been this weight. Nothing seems to change it.

I am obese but still continuing to work off the weight, vegetarian habits help tremendously. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sunny.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sunny:">

My weight is "just right," but that's a bit misleading. That says nothing about muscle, and in that area I could definitely use some work. I sit on my computer all day, and really don't exercise (much).

165 @ 5 foot 9. before cutting out the "bad" carbs like white rice, white pasta & white breads, I was 195.<br><br><br><br>
I'm a tad bit overwieght I guess. It seems that 155 is a normal weight for my height.

1 stone = 14 lbs. 11 stone calculates to 154 lbs. For someone over 5ft, seems like this should fall into "just right" or "slightly underweight."
