You can find the average weight for your height by using an average height and weight chart. Knowing the average weight for your height is a useful tool for setting your fitness goals.

Measure your height if you don't already know how tall you are. Ask a friend to help. Be sure to measure your height without wearing shoes for an accurate height measurement. Record your height.

Weigh yourself. Record your weight.

Decide whether you have a small, medium or large frame. If you can encircle your wrist at the bones easily with your thumb and middle finger, your frame is small. If your thumb and middle finger don't meet, your frame is large. If your thumb and middle finger meet, but snugly, your frame is medium.

Locate your height on an average height and weight chart. Read across the average height and weight chart to find your ideal average weight. Find your current weight on the average height and weight chart to determine if you need to lose weight or gain weight to in the average weight range for your height.

Note whether you are underweight, overweight, or near the average weight for your height.
