For those of you that have reached or about to reach you goal... what is or will be that magic number on the scale? Can you post a pic?

I am trying to figure out if I should set my goal at 150 or 160 and would like to see what other look like.

    The first photo of me (I'm on the left) is at 190 lbs (my highest was 220, but I don't have any pics from then).The second was a few weeks ago at 140 lbs (I'm on the right). I would still like to lose another 15 lbs.

    Wow! I thought that would be a little too small (140) but it looks good! I was planning on going to 155. But 140 looks good!!

    I am aiming for 150-155 because the last time I weighed in at that range, I think I looked pretty good and i certainly felt pretty good. If, when I reach 150, I feel I could lose more, then I will go for it.

    I am strength training as well, and I have noticed that, at my current weight, I am smaller than I was 2 years ago (at the same weight).

    I'm 5'7" nowhere near goal but the 'normal' range for our height is somewhere around 120-160, it all depends on your body frame. I am larger/medium framed so I am aiming for 155 and once I get there I will see how I feel and reset my goal if i need to.

    this is my before and after from 180ish to 147... I'm right between 5'7 and 5'8 and I've never been this slim in my adult life so I'm not sure how much farther I want to continue to lose. I originally set my goal at 25lbs to lose for medical reasons but I adjusted to 35lbs when the weight came off in just over 8 weeks and now I'm considering going down to 135 for a total weight loss of 45lbs because my body is definitely slowing down in the rate of weight loss as I get smaller but it's certainly not plateauing.

    I am 5'7 (barely) and weigh 123. I have had 3 kids in the past 8 years though so I still have some toning to do.

    I'm 5'6.5'' and probably 120 in this pic. I tend to hover around that weight but am sometimes a couple pounds heavier. I haven't weighed myself lately.

    I am 5ft 7 and the lowest weight I have been in my adult life was 159 - at this time I was quite toned and a size 10 (UK)

    It is my aim to get back to that or even surpass it.

    I am just shy of 5'8 and currently weigh 170lbs. I would love to weigh as little as 130lbs but have set my goal at 150 because Mr Man prefers me with what he calls "curves".

    I don't have any pic's uploaded but I'm aiming for 150...i was sitting around 155last summer and felt pretty good but I think a few more would do it! When I was in my late teens early 20's I was around 140-145 and everyone kept telling me I looked too skinny. It all depends on your body type, no matter the height everyone is built differently!
