    Height: 5’5″ (For perspective I have a weird body, I’m an extreme pear shape, almost no fat above my belly button, IBTC membership, and almost comically voluptuous from navel to knees)

    I’m not sure… it used to be 120 but now I’m right on it… I have long standing body image issues/disordered thinking about it, so now that I hit that goal, I feel nothing. I don’t feel pride, or completion. I just feel like I have to move the goal posts further down. I’ve cognitively gone “I really don’t need to lose any more weight” but I still get excited on mornings when I’m a pound less or something.

    I have no idea what my goal is anymore. I know if I lose more weight I’ll start looking kind of funny (I can see it starting around my chest already) but when I’m not losing weight those disordered, inaccurate “I’m fat and unworthy” thoughts start creeping in again. Like actively losing weight makes me a better person or something, which is stupid.

    I’m trying to work on accepting the body I have, so I chose 110-120, since that’s where I am now.

    I am 5’10 and would like to get back to the 155-170lb range. I’m hovering right near 195 now.

    🙁 I’m trying! I’ve lost over 30lbs already since last year and would love to cut off a few more before the wedding!

    I’m 5’5″ and in the 160 range and compared to the 220 I used to be I feel like a supermodel now. After I started working out my thinnest weight was 156 and everyone told me I looked sick at that weight including my mother who spent my whole life saying stuff like I’d be so much more pretty if I just lost weight. I even remember feeling very weak and spindly and hating the way my hip bones and collar bones jutted out, it was a very uncomfortable weight for me so I think I really belong at a slightly higher weight.

    I am 5’8″, and ideally I like to weigh in around 165.  Any smaller than that, and I look deathly ill.  Hopefully I’ll be back to that come wedding time!  LOL

    I’m 5’6 and I currently weigh 142. I would really like to be 130, but I would settle for 135. I recently lost about 18 lbs, I was 160 about 8 months ago. Still working on it!

    I’m 5’7 and 167 pounds, but I have a fair bit of muscle tone and I feel super healthy so… I’m not too fazed.

    I’m 5’3″ and currently 160lbs (ughhh). I’m a size 6/8 and want to get to the 2/4 that I was before my sophmore year of college…when everything went downhill lol

    My ideal/goal weight is to be between 110-120lbs. 110 would be the smallest I would ever want to be and 120 is the biggest I want to be so I like to make it a range as opposed to an exact number.
