Goal weight.

Some have asked what my goal weight is.

Truthfully, I don't know.

I know what my healthy range is...
I know what I looked like when I was in high school... (11 years ago!)

But I don't know what I want my final goal weight to be.

I guess it's more of how I feel.  I don't feel like I want to shoot for a number.  I don't want to be disappointed in a number.  I want to keep loosing until I feel good in my skin.

Up above I set my "ticker" to show 160 as my goal weight.  That is the weight when I am officially no longer "over-weight" or "obese" or "morbidly obese."  (You know I started at the "morbidly obese.")  At 160 I will officially be a healthy weight.

Is 160 my destination?

No, definitely not.  I know I have more than 11 pounds still to loose.  But 160 will be an accomplishment. 160, I will have dropped my BMI into my healthy range for my height.  So that is the reason I have 160 as my ticker weight.  No, not because it's my final destination.  Most definitely not.


  1. Like you, 160 will get me to a healthy range but probably won't be my final weight. However, as I near 40 it might be the best I can do and I'll be fine with that when I get there.
