• Am I a good weight for my height?

    I'm male, 24 years old, and I'm 5'10". I used to be crazy overweight, and over the last two years I've brought my weight down from 274 to 188, which is where I am now.

    I'm male, 24 years old, and I'm 5'10". I used to be crazy overweight, and over the last two years I've brought my weight down from 274 to 188, which is where I am now. I've found that, though I try to lose a bit more, I'm pretty much stuck in the upper 180s. I certainly look and feel a lot healthier now than I did two years ago, but I keep seeing online recommendations that a healthy weight for my height is in the high 150s to high 160s. That seems CRAZY. I'm fairly big-boned, and I think at that weight I'd just look emaciated. Anyway, I guess I just want to know what others think. 188 pounds on a big-boned 5'10" frame? Try and lose more or hold steady -- at least in the short term?
