Nope. They figured it out with two readings. A MedGem metabolic test and a hydrostatic weight (under Water scale).

I would "like" to lose 80 lbs. but i'd be thrilled with 50-60. When I get there, I think it will depend on how healthy I am and how I feel as to how accepting I am at the weight I get down to. I'm not stressed about it, but when discussing it with friends, family and co workers, the "number" always comes up. So that's what I say to people.

For my BMI to be "normal", I would need to get down to 174. My goal is 199 though. I want to see a 1 at the beginning of my weight. I haven't seen that since I was a young teen. If I lose more, then that's great!
