Default Magic number?

I just read Lyn2007's blog and she said that 227 was a magic number for her because she hadn't seen it 10 years and it got me wondering................what's your magical number (besides goal) and why? Mine is 198 because I haven't been below 199 in over 11 years - yikes! I got to 199 on WW in 2003, but ballooned right back up to exactly where I started. It hurts just to say that! So.seeing that number on the scale will be very emotional!

You are so close to your magic number Skinny..Yaye!!!! As for me, like you, mine is 199. I guess the simple fact ov being under the 200 mark will be a great accomplishment for me. I am aiming for October sometime so on my Birthday, I want to be 1?? :-)

Have a great evening xo

It's nothing original, but it will be 199. I think I might even burst into tears of joy. I haven't seen 19-anything since... gosh... probably since I was 12. So, about 13 years now. It will also mean that I will no longer be obese... I'll just be overweight... so even more of a celebration!

It looks like we all have the same number in mind -- 199 for me too

I'll I can remember was I was 190-something when I got married (150 when we met ) but that I would love to be out of the "2's". However, right now I just concentrate on leaving a group of "10's" behind!!

Weight loss is a marathon, not a sprint.

Hey Skinny, our story is VERY similar. I lost 110 on WW in 2003 and got down to 193...just like you, only to balloon right back and YES it is painful to even say that. All that hard work down the drain. So for me...magic number is 192...one pound lighter than last time around.

I guess one of my numbers would be 199 because I haven't seen it in a few years. The other number would 159 because I don't remember stepping on a scale and it being less than 160. I will be VERY excited when I get to both of those numbers! May even have a party... hehehe

I am also kind of excited that I am closer to 200lbs than 300lbs now!!

I have a whole list, but I am really looking forward to getting back down to 160. That's what I weighed in high school, and I haven't seen it in a looooong time.

For me 174 was my magic number. It's what I weighed 10 years ago when I got married. For me to dip below that number ... wow.

My next magic number is my goal number ... 135. It's what I weighed when I graduated from high school.

I actually would like to be even lower than my goal, which is realistic for my height and bone structure, but I"ll decide that when I get to goal. For now I think 135 is reasonable and doable.

Mine is 187.
I haven't been able to get below that in my adult life!

It always seems to be 187 when I lose it

Joining the bandwagon of the 199 club here - which I'm within sight of and have not been there for about 12 years. My next magic number will be 170 when I am no longer obese.

I think 199 but 195 will be much better. My weight fluctuates like a balloon. I have been working out intense at the gym since Jan 1 of this year and I have only lost 6 pounds.....it is time to get things moving again. My DD is getting married in 366 days........I want to be at goal by then.

One for every 5 lbs. lost......

Gosh...199 is a REAL magic number to me. However - being 5 pounds lower than 199 will feel even better. 151 was what I weighed when I got married - I stayed at that weight a long time.

I can't lose 100 pounds....but, just maybe I can lose five pounds twenty times.
