The BMI chart: Age is only used for pediatric/youg adults, often calculated to age 18 or so. After this point, we only use height and wt to determine healthy vs not-healthy-wt ranges for both men and women. It is a rough estimate and provide you a guide to keep "ideal body wt" for better health. If you have specific concern about your wt/height vs age (we shrink in height with age), consult doc. Good luck.

No such thing: Even for young adults, these are subscience. At any adult age, the best weight is what looks and feels right to the person and enables them to do the things they enjoy -- hopefully including some fitness activities. An older person needs adequate muscle but fat isn't an asset. Don't target a number, target a level of fitness and function.
