Question Start weight ?

Do you guys put your highest weight ever as your start weight? Or do you put the weight that you tend to stay without dieting? Or do you just put your start weight as what your weight was once you started this time around? I know that sounds bad, to say "this time around" but there have been so many starts but its all one long struggle...so what do you all put as your start weight?
I ended up putting my "starting this time around" weight as my start weight, but it have been heavier and i worked hard to get down to my start weight, so it seems like all that work doesnt get accounted for.

That's interesting! I've never thought about that before.

My starting weight - 262 - was also my highest weight ever, so that's straightforward.

Mini-goal 1: Reach 257lbs
Mini-goal 2: Reach 222lbs
Mini-goal 3: Reach 209lbs
Mini-goal 4: Reach 199!
Mini-goal 5: Reach 179 lbs (overweight BMI category!!)
Mini-goal 6: Reach 160lbs
Final goal: Reach 145lbs

Mini exercise goal 1: Begin running September 2012
Mini exercise goal 2: Celebrate graduation with a 5K

I entered my "starting this time" weight. However, my high weight was only 4 pounds higher (if I remember correctly) and that was when I first logged onto this site last summer.

This time I plan on sticking around and making the weight go away forever!

St. Patrick's Day goal - MET! Baseball Opening Day (April 2) goal - MET! Memorial Day goal - to be in the "teens" - MET! 36th Birthday goal - below 200 - MET! Labor Day goal - MET! Wedding anniversary goal - MET! Christmas goal - 175 - didn't make this one. Maintaining for now...no new goals at the moment.

My SW is from the last time I was weighed, 2 months after birth on my way back into the OR for an emergancy appendectomy. However, that was Nov, I didn't start changing to a healthier lifestyle until April, so I'm guessing I had put on 15-20 pounds. I know my highest weight that I can verify, scale wise, I was pregnant, 39 weeks, 3 days and weighed in at 289. I don't think that weight should count :P I should change to my highest weight though, since I have in fact lost that too!

Goal 1: 214 lbs. Met!! Goal 2: 197 lbs. Met!! Goal 3: Keep getting healthy in 2013

My start weight was actually 255. But I lost 50 lbs. awhile back then gained some back. So I guess my start weight is this final time.


Start weight 2002: 255 lbs.

I use the weight in which I said: "This f***ing sucks, I am tired of being fat, so I am going to stop torturing myself- now" My highest weight was about 10 lbs heavier several years ago.

I am not losing weight for I have no intention of going out and finding it again.

My starting weight was the weight I was at this time around. I briefly considered putting my all-time high weight as the start so I'd be able to show an immediate 14 pound loss, but decided against it.

I'm measuring my progress this time, for this program. I've spent enough time living in the past that I decided, for me, revisiting old weights was counter-productive.

Your mileage may vary, of course.

My starting weight this time around also happens to be my heaviest. But if it wasn't, I would definitely put my heaviest. I mean, you worked hard to lose it, you can claim it!
