I think deciding on a goal weight has been pretty hard. But hey I want to be perfectly honest here, the hardest hard part of this whole journey thing has been how I am treated by my female friends. Most all of them were super supportive until I reached right around 230ish. I was still fatter than most of them, but not embarrassing to be seen with...lol Once I entered the threshold of the 200's and below most of my female friends have become very standoffish. I get the "you're becoming anorexic" or "you need to be careful about getting too thin" comments on a regular basis. Only a few of them will go shopping with me anymore. It is sad. Men on the other hand...well, lets just say that men are men.
