Here is my scenario I used to weight around 200 to 205 lbs but when I moved to Brasil I jumped up to 220 to 225. I kinda let myself go but recetly I tried to lose some weight and I got down to 210 to 215 it took a few months. My concern since I lost that weight I fell skinner and kinda look skinner, but my question is if its normal to lose some body mass if you lose weight?

What should be my ideal goal weight?? Im 6'3!

I also forgot to mention its been over 6 months that I dont work out. I just walk around the city a lot! I wanted to get back to the gym what work out should i start doing?

mass IS weight. if you lose weight you lose mass.

I think what he means is it feels like muscle has been lost. Chances are, if you tried to loose weight, and you do not lift, some of the weight lost was muscle mass. That means your chest, arms, shoulders will feel a little smaller than they did before.

If you haven't been lifting weights, yes.

Depends on your goals.
