I've wondered how to set a goal weight, other than getting there and seeing what you can reasonably maintain. The charts and acceptable BMI give ranges but I wonder how much is individual body metabolism.
I got to 124 with diet drugs when I was a lot younger and 132 with a McDougall-type plan (Mirkin's diet, which allowed some fish and skim dairy) but couldn't break through 132. Maybe following MWL would have helped. In the end, I just got sloppy and put the weight back on. Eternal vigilance!
I need to set smaller, obtainable goals for myself so I don't get discouraged and give up. I feel great, so I don't want to stop. My goal weight was set by my dr, but I know I can benefit more if I get below that. I have a long way to go before I'm too thin.
