Question Appropreate weight for my height and age?

Hi everyone,

I'm starting to log my food and make some goals for myself, but am having a bit of trouble trying to decide what I should realistically aim for. I'm a 5'7" 38 y/o Female.

I'm not working at this time, so am spending most of the day at the computer, but I do try to get at least 15-30 minutes of walking or swimming in each day. Summer in the desert isn't very conducive to outdoor sports, but I try to walk early in the day, or about an hour after sunset.

Any suggestions on what weight I should be aiming for? I'm also interested in opinions for what my calorie deficit should be for a steady & safe loss, and if there's a macro nutrient ratio that works well, or if it is just the overall cal count that matters.

I'm thinking about joining something like Weight Watchers because I think face to face accountability would help me, at least in the beginning. All comments welcome and appreciated.

Thanks
