    8 pounds away from goal. I did it through cutting calories and exercising for at least 30 minutes a day 5-6 days a week. Started with all cardio, then slowly mixed in some weights with cardio. Currently, I do 3 days of cardio and 2 days of strength training.

    Hi I am 5 foot 8 but I am thinking 168lbs. Seems a long way off from the 213lbs I am now but not as far away as my 254 lbs starting weight

    I am looking to get down to 155, at 220 right now. It'll take a long time to get to 155, but just like you I am going for my 1st goal of getting under 200!

    Good luck :)

    I'm a little shy of 5'10 and am currently 250. My first goal is to hit the 'healthy' range, around 175. My dream weight would be 155, although don't know whether I'd look healthy or not as I carry my weight different to most girls. I can dream though! :)))

    Currently 180, goal is 155ish. I figure I'll re-evaluate when I get closer and go from there.

    I'm 5'9. My heaviest was just over 200 lbs. I would like to get around 149. So those weekends when I splurge and gain a few won't bug me terribly.

    Here is my most recent before/after pic.

    I am 5'9 and I am looking to be 145...I am 148 close...I may not make it all the way. I am okay with that, I just want to physically smaller and I am lifting heavy so maybe i won't lose another pound, but I would be thrilled loosing a dress size:-)

    I am not as concerned with the number on the scale...I am more concerned with my measurements.
  • acg1305acg1305 Member Posts: 224 Member Member Posts: 224 Member

    I'm trying to get to 150. Hovering around 155. Those last 5 lbs are taking forever.

    185!!! I am 5'8 and I would be happy at that weight!!
  • kknudsonkknudson Member, Premium Posts: 60 Member Member, Premium Posts: 60 Member
    I am aiming for 160, because that's what I was in high school when I was very fit.

    But to be honest, my goal weight is super flexible. If I feel fit at a higher number, I won't object to it.

    I'm 5'9" and want to be about 160. I think I would be thrilled with that! I have 36lbs to lose and I have not been pushing myself so it feels very far off !

    I have a very small build (under all this fat lol), so I'm most comfortable at the lower end of my healthy BMI range where I was for most of my adult life prior to having a kid.

    My GW is 155 and my current weight is 160/161ish... I haven't weighed myself since last week.

    I'm 5'9" and my goal is 160 for now, but ideally 150. When I graduated high school (12 years ago), I weighed about 200 lbs., then by my junior year in college, I was down to about 135. I lost the first 20 lbs. in a very healthy manner, but then after that it was all lost unhealthily. I thought I looked great at the time, but now looking at pictures, I looked terrible. I do have a bigger framer with broad shoulders, so I look weird if I get too skinny. I had my daughter at the end of college, and have been fluctuating between 155-195 since then. Last spring, I lost 15 lbs. in six weeks, but I got burnt out on the diet, so I just slid back into old habits, and gained almost all of the weight back. I maxed out at 191 this past winter, and am now 182. I'm not being super strict about my diet like I have in the past, but everything's still in moderation. If I want a piece of pizza, I will have ONE piece of pizza, and just eat clean for the rest of the day. I am being dilligent about exercising, though. The weight's obviously coming off a lot slower, but it doesn't feel like such a chore this time around.
