Hi bmkess, welcome to FitDay.
I'm not sure what you mean by weird or unhealthy numbers, but I can tell you that my husband's the same height as you. At his heaviest, he was about 235; usually he's been about 210. When he got to 200, he was surprised to learn that he was still considered "overweight," but as he's gotten into the low 190s recently, he can see how he still has a little way to go. So maybe numbers that seem unreasonable to you now might not as they get closer; I remember him saying the same thing.
Good luck! Glad you found the forums. Don't be a stranger!
And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
