Hi there, I thought I'd pop in. I recognise a few faces here from the slimming world community, but it would be nice to meet other slimmers too. I've been slimming for 8 months now anyway and I've lost just over 3 stone in that time. I'm pretty pleased with my progress, and I hope you're all doing well too, whatever way you're trying to lose weight.

Can I just ask where the healthy weight chart on the profile page for this community is from? It's just that I'm 5'6" tall, and it reckons I should be between about 7.5 and 9.75 stones or thereabouts, which looks like it corresponds to about 17-22 BMI. The healthy weight range for me by 20-25 BMI, which is what I usually see recommended, would be between 8 stone 12 and 11 stone. It just seems like a huge difference and I'm wondering where that recommendation comes from.
