Just wanted to share that I had a 3.2lb loss this week! I am really excited because I lost the 2.6 I gained last week plus and I am not back into the 150's (159.0, but that is still in the 150s)

Now I have to start thinking about a goal weight.. any suggestions?
New Siggy coming soon!

Yay! Good for you! You would probably be the best person to determine your goal weight. What were you before you had kids? Is there anything like that you could aim for?

Before I had kids.. I honestly have NO idea.. before WW I had not stepped on a scale in over 5 years. I never even went near a scale through either of my pregnancies. I had the most wonderful midwives who said as long as I was not concerned and they did not see any reason to be concerned that there was no point in stressing over weight. I do know however that I am in a smaller size than I was in highschool now
New Siggy coming soon!

3.2!!!! WOW! That's wonderful, I never did so well on WW as you! I bet you'll be leading meetings in no time!

As for establishing a goal weight... It's kind of hard. I figured mine out by just combining a few different factors:

- my BMI: I want to have my BMI fall around 20. It's in the middle of the healthy range for my height.
- size of clothes: I want to wear my favorite jeans in a 5/6. I don't want to buy XL or L anymore. I want to wear Ms and Ss -- and hey, I'll even take an XS, lol!
- waist to hip ratio: I can't remember the healthy range for this but abdominal fat is dangerous for your heart, so I try to stay in the healthy range.
- body type: I'm a curvy girl, with an hourglass shape. I will never have a teeny tiny boyish figure. My measurements are 36-27.5-36. The ratio won't change, but I can try to bring all the numbers down at the same rate.

For me a healthy weight is somewhere between 125 and 130. I am 5'5".

Good luck - I know you'll be delicious!!
