Choosing your goal weight
 
I was wondering how people went about choosing their goal weight. I picked the middle of the "healthy BMI" range for my height. I was also thinking that maybe it should be based more on body fat percentage, but it hard to choose a weight based on that. What are your thoughts? How did you choose?

There is a bit of a discussion happening about that right now here:

I picked 140 at first, based on the BMI chart. But after looking at a lot of progress photos, I changed it to 150. For my height, I think that will be a good weight. But as I get closer to that goal, it may need to be adjusted up or down, and I'll just figure that out as I get closer. Right now it's really just an arbitrary number anyway.

My goal weight, 150, is in the middle of the range of normal for my height and bone structure (large). I could probably live with being around 160, but I want to get back into running and I think 150 would be easier on my joints. I guess I will see where I am in 4-6 weeks and tweak my goal if necessary.
