    I'm really looking forward to breaking the being sub 400 pounds. Maybe by my birthday May 24 weekend... Maybe not, but it's happening!

    That's my birthday weekend too! (May 23rd) My mini goal is to hit 205 by then. May be a bit ambitious but I'm giving it my best!

    I'm a 5'9" Female and did get down to 131 last year but I ended up binging for weeks so I figure maybe I can stay at 140 a bit easier. Increase my walking speed/length.

    Goodness: I'm 5'11", also female and I am aiming to maintain at around 165 lbs, which is a healthy weight for me. These are your goals, and I wish you luck whatever goal you set for yourself,, but I am wondering why you feel the need to take your weight so low?

    This may not be particularly low once you account for frame size. I am a healthy BMI per charts at 149.9 (I'm 5'5" female) and am currently 152 (down from 190). I wear a size 4 ring on my ring finger - a 5 will fit over my thumb, and I can get a 6" bracelet over my hand without unclasping it (and lose them frequently) - an 8" one fits comfortably with room around my ANKLE. I don't have hips or a butt, but do have big breasts. My actual ideal is likely 120-125, (in the absence of building more muscle). Will I ever see that, much less maintain it? Don't know, currently do not care at all, but it's where I should probably be for optimal health/not having an actually too high body fat percentage - there's just not a lot of bone to account for extra 'lean' mass/weight.

    By which I mean the upper end of BMI on me is still absolutely overweight for me. I mean I'm gonna stop and maintain at about 145 because I am tired, but the lower end of the BMI chart is there for a reason; it's where some people fit and is still healthy.

    I've struggled with my weight most of my adult life. I'm a lifetime Weight Watcher member, but that isn't enough by itself to keep the weight off. I recently read a book called "The Willpower Instinct." In it, the author talks about taking a "negative" and finding a way to turn it into a "positive." You know that feeling in the pit of your stomach that "tells" you you're hungry? In the past, whenever I had that feeling, I would HAVE to eat, and usually I would choose something unhealthy. Now, I imagine an army of "PacMan" ghosts, eating all my fat, and that "feeling" of hunger is the signal they are fast at work. I welcome them now, and wait until my scheduled time to eat. I lost over 35 pounds using that imaginary tool. Now, I've gained some of it back during Covid, so I turned to MyFitnessPal. Now, when I am accountable to write everything down, in an EASY way, the weight is melting off again. THANK YOU FITNESSPAL for creating such a wonderful program. It has truly made a difference.

    I love this, packman eating the fat. When I get hungry at night I say Burn Baby Burn and I know I am losing weight, reminded me of that!

    My mini goal is to be at my goal weight by the end of May, to coincide with my anniversary May 30. I'm at 129 now, so that's 9 pounds.
