You're right, Lynx. I should add from my experience as someone in the height range of 5'4-5'6 (which is what I was told by the COD). Further, Gold is the plan that most people are on (what I heard from my COD- and it will probably be the one that you are the longest on-depending on your goal). Also, from my understanding green (if you goal is pretty close to the range for healthy weight) is the one where you might end at. For instance, when I was the most successful at LAWL - I started on Gold after about 189 (although this all is subject to change and subject to what Dan calls inconsistency
). Then I was told I would move down after about 138-135 and continue there until I reached my goal. Also, this does not include a suggestion of exercise- if you evercise more than 5 hours a week- that would change things also. Again, in these two posts I'm not proclaiming to know all, just trying to give you some suggestions. My goal for the new year is to learn to have fun "experimenting" with WL. Trying new things until I find out what works.
Good luck to you.
