    Well i chose mine because suposedly my calculated ideal weight is between116 and 145 for my height.

    my weight has fluxuated alot, i used to weigh 135 about 3 years ago, but was at 185 (size 16) about 5 years before that, i lost 60 lbs before but my body just didnt like it and i gained ablut 10lbs and leveled off at 135 (size 6/8 depending) . i was never happy at 135 though, i have body dysmorphic dissorder and i will probably always think im fat, but I think if I aim for 125 which will hopefully get me into a size 4, I will be at a healthy weight and can hopefully start learning how to like myself. I have alot of emotional weight issues and I know many people my height would look great and be happy at 145, but i need to at least try to aim for my emotional goal.

    i will always remember the kid in 8th grad who made backing up beep sound at me whenever i stood up and pushed my chair back in class to leave the room. I hate him, and i hope he is fat now too. Its funny how one little thing has messed up my self esteme forever.



    I think i lost my mind struggling to loose my extra weight.

    well, my goal weight is 150 and i'm 5'4" so i really could stand to lose even more than that. the great thing is....you can always change your goal weight! when i started at 202 i just wanted to make a realistic goal.....52 lbs. seemed quite huge to me! also, i looked good at 150.....although i don't think i will now cus my body is so different. i'm sure when i get to 150 i will lower my goal, but i didn't want to feel like i was NEVER going to reach the goal when i first started.

    My goal weight is what I weighed when I got married and I looked pretty hot. I think its a reasonable weight for me to obtain and hold at too. I haven't weighed that in 15 years.

    My dream weight would be 150, when I start dropping below that I kinda look sickly and my man likes meat on a womans bones. I'm tall, which is in my favor and I can carry weight pretty well.

    If I can just get down to 180 and fit though I will be happy and prepared to do my hyst/tummy tuck next year. They will be cutting out about 5lbs of fat and loose skin anyway. LOL

    Then my plan is to get new boobs. 11 years of breastfeeding and losing weight should make them nice and deflated.

    I based my goal weight on what a healthy bmi would me for me. I also considered my age. After having children & being close to 40 there is no way I can look like I did when I was 20, nor do I want to.

    I wasnt really sure how to pick my weight. So I just picked 180 and figure I would see how I feel when I get there. I know I was 170 before my first kid, and I was basically healthy and happy with myself. So I figure once I reach 180, I will see and adjust from there.

    Hello,
    I just changed my goal weight to undecided for that very reason. I am in a weight loss challenge and they did a body scan. Based on my bone density etc. etc. the scan said a good weight for me is 211. I also think back to when I felt my weight was right and it is about 210-215.




    Highest Non-Pregnancy related weight 03/08: 279
    1st Weigh-in 6/18: 262
    2nd Weigh-in 7/15: 249
    7/25: 244
    Regained all weight plus some
    01/05 265
    01/10 255

    1st Mini goal: 2/05 235
    2nd mini goal: 03/05 225
    Ultimate goal : 210-215 by 05/15 Grad School Graduation!!!!

    Goals subject to change based on how I look and feel as I lose weight.

    I have no idea what my ideal goal weight is. I have so far to go to be at a healthy weight. But I'll be super happy when I reach 200 and then I can re-evaulate and see how much farther I wanna go. To no longer be overweight according to the bmi charts, I need to be 160 at 5'8. I am positive that I'd be happy at 180ish.

    I was taking out my info a few weeks ago, when I went to put my goal weight back in - I thought I really don't even know what weight looks good on me. I haven't been in the 140,50, 60, or even 70's for so long, I don't remember.

    And my reality is, I may really like 180 for a long long time before I decide to get back to losing again.

    My original weight was a loose amount I want to weigh. I base mine off of my height and what the idea weight is. At 5'6 125 didn't seem too thin. Of course if I get to 135 and feel and look healthy, I'll be happy with it. I've never been below a size 16 and 190 pounds. So now I'm a size 14 and 199 pounds and close to reaching one of my lowest weights ever (no I lied I think I yo yo'ed one time and got to like 160-170 but didn't stay there too long). My goal is to get to my goal weight and stay healthy.

May 1 or 2 a week I will write down what I eat/do points etc. I have been pretty good a judging for myself on a daily basis. I made lifetime in 2001 before I got married, then along came baby in 2003 and I haven't been back. I sooooo want to be there again Vanna you are looking great btw

    I just took a stab at a weight that I thought was achievable for me and from there we shall see. I am the same height as Libby and I know that 130lbs will give me the healthy BMI but I think I will also be happy with about 160ish which is still considered overweight by the BMI charts but at least its no longer Obese (). I have never been "thin" so its hard for me to visualize it.
    BTW congrats on achieving lifetime status with Weight Watchers are you still following the plan?

    I picked 130 because I've been there and I look fantastic!!! 128 is actually suppose to be my highest weight cuz i am only 5 feet tall.
    I use to weight 115, sheesh I was a tiny little thing(but because I have weight issuses i ALWAYS thought i was fat, i should have slapped myself back then!) Anyways it was HARD WORK AND DEDICATION to get to 115 that was my lowest weight ever, i had had a baby and was at 165 when i dropped to 115, but because I know how much EFFORT i put to get there I sooooo dont think I have that kind of will power to get there again! LOL, soooo I will shoot for 130!!!!
