    For the purposes of discussion, you say: what next?

    Is this a "goals" discussion, or a "mechanics" discussion?

    If you are interested in new goals, or re-composition, then see the links above!

    If you're worried about the mechanics, you may want to consider and/or discuss the following:
    --what was the time-frame of your 140lb loss? i.e. how fast did you lose?
    --approximately where on the BMI scale are you currently? i.e. how lean are you?
    --how fast were you losing during the last two months or so? i.e. did you feather into maintenance?
    --are you using a weight trend app? i.e. are you used to looking at trends or do you respond to scale weight?
    --how much were you eating during the last two months or so? i.e. are significant intake changes likely?
    --how accurately have you been logging? i.e. are you likely to be consistent/continue to be consistent?
    --have you been eating, exercising, and logging as you intend to continue, or were you doing things differently?
    --what changes, if any, are you planning?
    --have you defined an acceptable weight change range for yourself, and a plan on what to do in case you exceed it?
    --have you dialed in your maintenance calories yet?

    10 stone is 140LBS (had to look it up honestly)
