Newbie to the boards, but not to the attempt at weightloss. I have gone up and down and then up and then down again since graduating college. I was in the low 140s in college and beginning of last year I was at 150s I was happy around 150, yea I wanted to loose more but I was happier.
2 weeks ago I was at 167, not my highest but close and I am now down to 163 so I am heading in the right direction again.
I have been reading posts and noticing a wide variety of goals people have set. I want to get down to low 150s. Thats the main goal in my mind but then I start looking at people similar height to me with much lower goals. I know 150 is still techincally overweight for me, but I guess I just havent seen anything lower then that in over 4 years and I have a hard time thinking I can get there. I have an atheltic build and I guess I just dont know if I ever could be 140 or lower. I'm afraid to set myself up for failure.
So I guess my question is how did you determine you goal? And if you met your goal were you happy or did you want to lose more?
