I'm writing this in the final hour of the Yom Kippur fast...so please ignore any massively egregious grammatical issues. I'm hunnnnggggry.
Anyway...I've been on the South Beach Diet since mid-May (so, about 5 months?) and in that time, have gone from 166 pounds to 124.5. (i'm sorta fluctuating between 124 and 126 for a few weeks now..) My original goal weight was 120, so I'm pretty close to that..but the thing is, I still have some pretty flabby areas, especially my legs, and I'm tempted to re-set my goal to somewhere around 115.
My height is 5'4", my BMI is currently about 21.5 (i think...i'm bad at those calculators), and I now wear around a size 4 (though I also own 2s, 6s, 8s, I'm currently about five different sizes, haha.)
I guess my question is, how do you know what the right weight for you is? I know, obviously that I'm much happier and healthier now than I was five months ago. (In fact, I had to hide all my pictures of the old-me, because they upset me so much.) But, it's like, how do you know when you are the best you can be? Or is it a constant process?
I know, obviously, this diet is a way of life, and not a "diet", so it's not a matter of going off it at any point, but I want to get to the place where I feel satisfied with where I am, and don't cringe at the idea of special occassions and occassional treats, etc.
I"m rambling...hope this made sense
