I wonder if you need to bump that up a bit, especially if you're physically active. My target was 1200 at that point. Not saying yours should be, but you might getting to the point that is too low to keep you satiated... which is a recipe for binging.

I also think your goal weight might be too low. You and I are the same height. I'm currently 148 and can't imagine being any smaller than this. I already look a bit gaunt. 145-150 seems like it might be a better goal for you?

Yeah, I've got an email into my nutritionist. I see my surgeon in July for my ~6 month post-op appointment. Thank you for your input, it's very helpful. My family says I'm thin enough now, and if I can make it to 150 I'd be satisfied. I workout at least 5 days a week for at least 30 minutes. Definitely need the counseling sessions, there's a lot that I need to work through eating/body positivity-wise.

Oh, yeah. If you're exercising that much you're definitely not eating enough.

I got that "you're thin enough now" from family/friends around where you are now. I'm glad I didn't listen. I definitely look (and feel) better at this weight than I did then. 145-150(ish) feels really good. And it gives me a cushion for regain, which is common.

Keep pushing for the next 3+ months. You've got more weight loss in you. But maybe you can give yourself a bit more breathing room. Great job!

I think your suggestions are great, although, the goal weights for the same height are probably the difference between male and females... So her goal weight is right on for her height!

Not necessarily; men typically have a higher percentage of muscle mass than a woman who is the same height and weight. While everyone is different, in general a man will be able to consume a greater number of calories in a day.

This is exactly what I was saying, just worded differently, but I should have left off "same weight" and stated that's the difference in weight goals tho...I knew better.

She and I are the same height, so BMI targets are the same. The BMI formula is the same for women and men.

We all know BMI is a less than ideal measure, but it's a reasonable approximation of what a "healthy" weight is. 130 is really scraping the bottom of the "healthy" BMI range.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
