About 145 pounds: About 100 pounds for the first 5 feet and then add about 5 pounds for each inch over 5 feet. Those numbers are just a rough estimate, not a goal.
Dr. Steven Margolis

Weight: For women, the rule of thumb is 100 pounds for the first five feet then five pounds for each inch after, so 145.
