Depends on scale: If you match expected weight for the height on cdc charts, a weight of 195 lb/87 kg is expected.If you use the bmi scale that is less specific, you come up with a projected best weight at 141 lb/65 kg. You can download a weight/height chart and follow along measurements for age and gender. Seek : www.Cdc.Gov/growthcharts.

Unanswerable: Unfortunately first you did not include your height. But, this would be better answered if you described your weight and then get specific questions about what you are worried about. The ideal weight is nearly meaningless in real life.
