Help me, flist.

What's a likely weight, in pounds, for a skinny 5'7 guy (skinny because he tends to forget to eat and is underweight, though not unhealthily so)? One of the sites I found on the character says he weighs 110 pounds, and I would go with this if it wasn't for a girl four inches shorter than him and not overweight being listed as 24 pounds heavier than that. I have a suggestion of 154 pounds - does that sound right? I suck at judging weights.

Similarly, I need a likely weight for a healthy, athletic guy of 5'10.

...Sorry, I do not do pounds. Or even weight in general, very well. I only even know mine in vague terms of 'to the nearest stone.'

If you can tell me likely weights in stones, I can find a convertor?

Hmmn. Can try!

Let's see, I vary between nine and ten, and am five nine, so say eleven for the bigger guy?

Possibly eight for the smaller, shading to nine depending how heavy a stone is? *facepalm* I really suck.

I'm 5'10 and quite curvy and run between 150-160, so 154 may be a bit high?

Hmm, possibly. But 110 is way too low. *glares at canon site claiming this*

Canon is always low. I mean, Lorna is canon 115 at 5'7"!

Add 30 lbs to canon and you're usually closer. Muscles weighs more than fat though so keep that in mind.

I'm 6'1", and I used to weigh around 130-135. Other than forgetting to eat on occasion, I was healthy.

I'd say about 115-120, but 110 isn't too far off.

Sidenote: at that time, I was also doing competitive swimming, and doing well.

Much like that guy says -- I have a character who's 6'1" and forgets to eat on occasion, and is damn skinny, although just barely not unhealthily so. He's about 138, I think I decided.

Body Mass Index is your friend.

So a guy several inches shorter -- maybe 125? Something like that. Depends on if he's skinny or just has no fat, really, because Ezra does not so much have a lot of muscle mass, either.

I would suspect the healthy taller guy to have the 150-160 weight.
