I apologize for sending in this second request, but it has more complete information than my first inquiry.

My wife is 66 years old, 5' 2" tall, weighs 129 lbs., and exercises 4-5
hours each week using a set of DVDs by one of Hollywoods top
personal trainers.

In the last four weeks she has gained 4 lbs. from 125 to 129. She eats very healthily and is very consistent in her dietary consumption. Her stress level has remained low and constant. No changes in sleep habits, medicine, etc. The thyroid is closely monitored.

1. She wants to know what she should weigh for her height and age.

2. Exactly what is the affect of aging on weight gain?

Sincerely,
DMusic
