2 lbs from goal weight



Recommended Posts

I am 2 lbs from my goal weight. (150) I will be 1 year out on Jan 21. I don't feel like I should stop loosing weight. I think I can afford to lost another 10lbs but everyone keeps telling me I shouldn't lose anymore. How do I know what is the ideal weight for me.. I am 5ft 7 inches.

Only you will know... And finding the food/activity balance may take some time. Follow your heart, but DO take care of yourself!!!

Careful, you don't switch gears and see yourself smaller then you should be....There is a possibility of us becoming obsessed the other way...

Talk to your care giver or your nut and see what they think.....They may say you could lose another 10 lbs. Or maybe they will want you to try to maintain.....

By the way...........congratulations on your amazing success!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WTG

Only you know if you can afford to lose any more weight. According to the tables, the weight range for med frames at 5'7 is 133-144 but that doesn't take into account age and other factors.

I am 5'2" and hit my target of 140 at the weekend. That puts me at the top end of the large frame weight for my height - but I look pretty small and am wearing a UK 10/12.

People have said to me to stop now but my nut agreed I could lose another 5lbs to be comfortably within the normal BMI range. But he also said to do it 1lb at a time so that I can judge when to stop before I look too thin. However, I also intend to do plastics next year and the surgeon has asked me to give him 4-5lbs to play with. So, the reality is that I intend to now maintain knowing that the other surgery will take care of the last few remaining pounds.

Best advice is to talk to your nut and work with him or her. Congratulations, hope those last couple of,pounds melt away!
