How did you pick your goal weight? Maybe the number is a bit low?

The first goal weight I selected, mostly from looking at other people on this site, was impossible to attain, for me. I will probably never get to the SECOND goal weight I selected. My body has wanted to weigh (and I comfortable maintain at) 136 lbs. since I was a teenager. The difference now is body composition. I have a lot more muscle and am really fit now. So I weight 136-137 lbs. and can comfortably maintain that without having to calorie count, weigh food, and all that stuff that was very tedious for me. I do keep track of what I eat and try to err on the side of fresh food prepared by me. My brain DOES know the calorie counts of most of what I eat so that helps too.

So why don't I change my ticker? Pride, I guess. And embarrassment at settling for what looks like a pretty high number, based on what I see on this site.

We all have to find our own answers.


Living life simply and slowly is my goal now
