Same- size four. My frame was meant for it, but years of regularly eating junk food has kept me from feeling my best. Not a very complicated reason or goal, but suits me fine.

Mine is a strictly a scale weight goal for now. My goal is 143 pounds which would place me in the middle of the healthy height to weight chart range.

I have no idea at all what size clothing that weight will bring because it has been Fifty (50) years since I last weighed 143 pounds

I am curious as what size pants and shirt I will fit when I reach that.

My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four. Unless there are three other people. ~Orson Welles

I have had a lot of goals and tweaked them a lot. I've gotten to the point where I feel very confident and happy with how I look and feel. I want to continue to get stronger but I am pretty happy. I wear a size 12 and weigh about 170. Just shy of losing 100 pounds. I should probebly go ahead and lose 100 pounds. That's a nice round number.

I'd like to get to 146, half of my highest known weight, and in the middle of the healthy range for my height. Ideally, I'd like to be about a size 6, but I'm less concerned with the numerical size as opposed to getting fit and firm.

(restart 3/10/11, 262.8lbs)
250lbs by 4/18/11 (met 4/6/11)
220lbs by7/17/11 (met 6/5/11)
199lbs by 9/15/11 (met 7/18/11) (no longer obese at 202lbs; met 7/12/11)
175lbs by 12/5/11 (met 9/13/11)
169lbs- normal BMI (met 10/7/11)
162lbs by 1/23/12 (100lb loss since restart) met 11/4/11
150lbs by 3/01/12
met 12/15/11

For now? Roughly to eventually get out of the 200's. Maybe see a size 16.

More importantly, whatever I do end up losing, NEVER GAIN IT BACK AGAIN.

Even if I can "only" lose x number of pounds, I'd rather maintain x number of pounds lost while eating better and exercising than to be at 331 pounds not moving, not going out, and eating like crap.

Getting to a healthy BMI (so <155lbs) is definitely my most important goal. I'd also like to get to a 28 inch waist or under and hopefully end up in a size 8 or lower.

An exercise goal of mine is to eventually be able to deadlift my body weight that would be pretty cool!

I also have the family motivation too. I'm finally wearing a size smaller than my MIL, which made me really happy! I'd like to not stick out when it comes to my extended family/friends many of whom are already at a healthy weight.

Oh, and I'm hoping to get pregnant again once I reach my goal and I want to not be fat when I'm pregnant again (I gave birth at 240lbs last time).

ETA: Big agreement with being able to maintain this weight. Obviously I'll gave through another pregnancy but I really want to work on losing it again ASAP after the pregnant and not put it off for years like I did this time.

Starting Measurements (B/W/H): about 51/40/46, 240 lbs Goal Reached Pre-Pregnancy: 39/29.5/38, 156lbs Current: about 43/34/42
Started at 240
Onederland 199 (Jan 6, 2010, exactly 2 years after my previous due date!)
Overweight BMI 185 (Aug 3, 2011, one year after joining 3FC!)
Pre-pregnancy weight 175 (Oct 18, 2011)
Called Goal 156

I've changed my goal several times in the last few months as I continue to lose weight. I want to be 128 lbs/size 4.
I Choose:
To live by choice, not by chance;
to make changes, not excuses;
to be motivated, not manipulated;
to be useful, not used;
to excel, not compete.
I choose self-esteem, not self pity.
I choose to listen to my inner voice, not the random opinions of others.
Highest Weight: 180, Goal Range: 125-130, Trying to break the yo-yo pattern once and for all!

To finally be able to say I lost 100 lbs. I am only 7 lbs away but these last few are the hardest. Also I am determined to be able to do one arm pushups in the very near future.

To weigh 125 lbs.
To wear something smaller than size 10/XL clothing.
To be able to fit into the types of clothes I want to wear - and look good in them.
To be small enough to do all the things I want to do with comfort and confidence (kayaking, traveling, backpacking, etc.).
To be small enough to be attractive to guys who aren't creeps or knuckledraggers.

Mine's firstly to get a healthy BMI. I've always been overweight/bigger than all of my friends, so I am curious (or more like dying) to see if I sam actually the big frame that I've always thought I am. Once I get to that magic 70kg (154 pounds), I'm going to work how much more I can lose. I think that that'll make me a size 10 Australian, seeing as I am currently 10kgs heavier and am am size 12/ small size 14.
I have a secret desire to be 65kg (143 pounds) or lighter by July next year when I go to a cousins wedding in Seattle.
I don't want to scary skinny, just nice healthy skinny

the biggest one is to be healthier and to be able to keep up with my active 7 year old.

In terms of weight/size, I'd like to be completely out of plus sized clothing, on the top and bottom, Right now, it's 1-2X tops and 16 misses bottoms. I'd like to be a 12-14 top and whatever size bottoms go along with that, since I wear such different sizes right now it's hard to know what that will be.
Restart 1/6/13 - GOAL (for now) back to prior low
