My Goal Weight

I just realized that I am now below my original goal weight! Which was 145 pounds. I picked that because I knew I could do it and I'd been that weight after my last big dieting effort and been happy with it and maintained it for about a year.

Later on I realized WLS is different and I could get lower so I lowered my goal to 140. Then to 135. Now it's 132 because that's the first weight where I cross the line from overweight to normal on the BMI scale. I decided I wasn't going to go through all of this and not have a normal BMI.

But I expect to get lower than that.

I'm not sure how much though. I'd like to have 18% body fat which would put me around 116. Which is where my surgeon thinks I can go. But I think I might have too much excess skin to get that low so I'm aiming for more like 120.

I also wanted to get to 130-ish by 6 months and I've got 5 more weeks to go until that point. I'll have to lose an average of 2.5 lb. a week to make it, but I think I can do it.
