20-30lbs? What is your current weight? You don't look like you need to lose that at all.

Going by BMI, that would put you at underweight. 120-130 for your height still falls within a normal weight range.

Why do you want to weigh 94 pounds?

You look very slim and like you're at a healthy weight right now. Unless the picture is extremely misleading, it would be hard to imagine that a 20 pound loss would make you look anything other than skeletal and sickly.

I think you look great right now. I definitely don't think you need to, or should lose any more weight.

Yeah.... I'm backing out of this one.


You look great at the weight you are at! -20 or -30 would make you a skeleton. You know it and anyone with common sense know it.



Sorry to sound like a meanie.

I would say 0 pounds is what you need to lose. You really may want to talk to someone about your weight issues, it sounds like it could turn in to something dangerous.

I think you need to seek help from a professional. No one should try to weigh 94 pounds at 5'4".

I second this. A professional counselor will help you deal with whatever is causing you to see someone else in your mirror and crave reassurance to cope with it. There's a lot of hope and help for you if you're willing to look for it.

I wish you the best of luck.

I third this. I really do hope you came here to seek advice and not just to fish for "you look awesome" compliments. But either way, I think you need to take a good hard look at what's going on. Starting from the inside out.

How much weight have you lost so far? I ask, because you clearly don't "need" to lose anymore weight and as other posters have mentioned you would be underweight at 94 lbs.

But I'm curious if you've only lost a few lbs or several. Regardless, wanting to lose more weight at this point really requires attention and/or professional assistance. However, if you've already lost a tremendous amount of weight and are suffering from saggy skin or something, and hoping losing more weight might "fix" that, then your issues are quite different than if you've lost a little bit of weight and looking to lose more.

Whatever the reason you want to lose more weight, you should really take a step back and look at that photo, do you really think you should lose more weight? And secondly why do you want to get down to an unhealthy weight/BMI? Being too thin has just as many health consequences as being overweight.

Good luck to you.
