I'm 5'5 and currently 133 lbs. My initial goal weight was 135, which I chose initially partly because I thought it was the highest of the weights that I might be happy about. Had I had more confidence in my ability to lose weight, I probably would have picked 125 as my ultimate goal weight. I was 135 before I became pregnant with my first child, almost 10 years ago, but had been 125-130 for the few years before that, and I was pretty happy with how I looked then, so I figured if I could get back to that weight, I'd be happy.
I weigh less than I have in almost 10 years. I actually think I look pretty good. Not perfect, of course. I've still got some fat on my belly and lots of saggy and stretch-marked skin on my belly from my pregnancies. I would never wear a bikini, but that's okay with me. I feel better about how I look in clothes than I have in 10 years, and I'm more muscular now than I was then, because I'm also lifting now and I lifted weights only minimally back then
So I'm trying to decide whether I should keep going with losing, and try to get to 125, or start thinking about switching over to maintenance. I'm also scared that I'll gain some when I start maintenance, so I'm wondering whether I should lose a little more first for that reason too.
I feel like I get losing now, and it's not so hard, once I figured it out. But I'm a little scared of maintenance, because it's an unknown, and I'm afraid it's harder. Sounds crazy, right?
