    140 is about as low as I can go without looking ill.
    Right now, I'm 145, and I'm pretty thin, IMO. I've also gone from 26-21% bf too, so that makes a difference.

    I'm scared to get in the scale as went on a crazy food binge, but my goal is 135. I think that is realistic to maintain in middle -age. Need strength
  • 5"8 just hit goal of 133. I look too skinny. Skin is too loose need to build some muscle which I am working on it.
  • I'm 5'7" and my first goal is to be in the normal BMI range which would be 159... Then I'll see from there where I decide to get to :)

    I'm 5'9" and have been maintaining at 125.
  • I'm 5"7 and at 175 I am fine as wine in my book! That's my goal! Whatever size get me out of the plus size department and in a size 12 pants!
  • Im a bit over 5'8. And after my last child almost 6 months ago I was at 227 when I delivered. I just want to get back in my clothes!! I did the same made goals of 12 to 15 lbs, then changed as I lost it. Im doing the Vi-Shape powder shake diet. It's working great! ALso staying under 1200-1300 calories. You Can do it! So far I have lost 20lbs since July. Im close to the 180 mark now and am THRILLED! Even if dont loose anymore, Im happy loosing what I did! Best of luck to you! Lynn

    145 is the first goal I'm trying to get to. Then 140 and depending on how I look there, I may shoot 135.

    I'm 5'7" with a small-medium frame and my goal is 130. The number on the scale doesn't bother me much - it's the jiggle I'm trying to firm up!

    I am 5'7 and currently 182. My goal is 150
  • I have a large frame, and even larger breasts, so I'm shooting for around 170. But if/when I get there, I'll see if I can maintain that while also maintaining my love of food and maybe I'll shoot for lower.
