Honestly, I hate those dang charts. There are several places to calculate yours based on your height and weight.
According to that scale, I'm still slightly overweight. Do I feel unhealthy or fat now? Nope. Considering where I was when I first started, I feel fabulous!
As I have basked in the glorious feelings of reaching my goal weight this entire week, I've started thinking about where to go from here. I've never been this small in my entire adult life. I kid you not.
I have been asked how I set my goal weight. I picked the time I was smallest as an adult. I looked at those pictures several times over the past six years. I dreamed of being there again. So that's what I went for.
I never really believed I could make it this far. It was just some distant hope that I could get close. Now that it has become reality for me, I realized I'm just not ready to maintain my current weight.
We have a beach trip coming up and I want to see how much I can lose by then. I'm kinda skeptical to set an actual number at this point. I've never been this small and I really don't know what is realistic for my body now. I honestly celebrate any loss.
Secretly I think I'd like to have an overall loss of 100 pounds. I'm not sure that's even a possibility for my body, but who knows at this point. I don't want to stress over it, but I'm seriously considering it. I would actually have 27.3 pounds to go from here. According to the BMI charts I would be right in the middle of the normal weight range at that point.
I've got a husband who loves my curves and is protesting my continuation. I would be absolutely content if I stayed exactly where I am, but I am curious enough to try for something greater.
So how do you decide on a goal weight? How far off are you now?
