Here is a quick sheet setup:

The BMI & MASS Ideal is a estimate calculation and should not be taken as sound medical advice.
The estimates are calculated based on height.
Ideal weight is the estimated healthy mass of a person with that height.
Adjusted weight, is the current weight taken in consideration and a estimation of what the target weight can be taken to.
BMI is as above

So how does this work? How frequently should we post an update here? I assume you are kindly managing the spreadsheet?

Ideal weight lol.
To get to that ideal weight I will need to lose every ounce of fat on my body and then cut off a significant limb.
That is why I say, only a suggested, best is to aim for the Adjusted weight. According to that your target weight should be 88.3kg

Once a week, Think we can do it on Monday's

Hahahaha same - I last weighed that probably when I was 15. I'll need to check my height again - I know from experience that if I'm under 70kg, I look like somebody who has been drip fed a tablespoon of molasses and naught else for a year (a corpse).

Thanks for doing this! Will need to check my height and verify.

Biokineticist with skinfold test and all sorts of fancy stuff put my lean mass at about 73kg.

Nicely done. Yah that BMI ideal kills me every time, I'll be very happy if I get my new goal but to be honest, if I have to settle for where I am, not complaining. I'm certainly not aiming for that ideal.

You might think it... but not really. I'm same stats as you (male, 42, 1.75) and I'm on 70 atm and I STILL have a wobbly bit around my abs. Muscles are fairly defined but obviously could be better

Kudos for doing the table in the Fanie tradition. Looks great.
May I suggest weigh-ins on Friday before the weekend splurge?
