Most of my size 6 are lose now, so I think this is a good decision. It was hard when I started to decide what a good weight would be. In the past I have gotten to 145 and then just stopped because I was tired of it, not because it was were I felt I should be. What is hard is 138 is still pretty heavy of a weight in my mind, and I need to get past that.
Do you know what your % of body fat & muscle is? At this point in your journey, that's probably more important. I bought the same Omron HBF-514C Full Body Composition Sensing Monitor and Scale from Amazon ($74.99) that they use at my clinic. It's really helpful to look at something besides the scale. I think the viseral fat, muscle & fat % and BMI are more important as you get close to your goal weight. Also, if you're a small or medium frame, I would think another 10 lbs would be the max you'd want to lose.
