I love this site for picking a goal weight. It helps me imagine better what I might look like at a certain weight...

My maintenance weight picked me and it was lower than I thought it would be. I've been holding steady for two months and it hasn't been a struggle to stay this weight so that's how I know it's good for me. Some people might think on paper that I'm too light but I'm an ectomorph - lean but not very muscular. This weight works for me, everyone's different. I don't normally "announce" my weight offline in my real life b/c I feel it's like a license to invite people to comment on it. It's no one's business but my own IMO. As long as I'm healthy and feel good, that's was always my goal.

I picked a goal, but eventually my maintenance chose for me. I wanted to be around 124 pounds, but after I started weight training and increasing my diet food plan, I went to around 136 pounds. Standing at 5'5", I'm pretty happy about it and have no reason to complain.

I still wouldn't mind being at 124 lbs, but I love myself at 136 lbs too.

When I got dead serious about losing weight I was over 204 pounds, and I thought I would try and get down to 150 somebody said "you will still be obese" so I lowered my goal to the top of a healthy weight for my height, I didn't have any confidence that I could go lower but when I got there I decided to try to go a little lower and was successful. I did this a time or two more, dropping my goal another 5 pounds at a time until I am where I am now , a few pounds below my goal weight. It has been almost five years. Not a perfect five years but still maintaining.
