As I get closer to my goal I'm wishing I'd set my goal HIGHER. Just saying. I now wish I'd set it at 145, my entrance into normal weight according to BMI. I have it in my head that that's my real goal, but my ticker says 135. I'm finding it really, really hard to get these last pounds off. IF I had set it at 145 I could then reevaluate and move at my own pace toward the lower 135. But since 135 is my original goal all my mental games are screaming "You haven't been successful."

So I suppose it depends on your personality. For me, setting the lower goal backfired.
