It’s day 140 of the weight loss challenge and since I’ve started, I’ve met every single goal I’ve set for myself. First it was 30 lbs, then 40. I’m now looking to get down 50 lbs next. That’ll put me at 170 lbs. So, the question is, where/when do I stop trying to lose weight?
From what I’ve seen, based on my height, age, and gender, my ideal weight is between 131-164 lbs. That’s just ideal. So that’s about 16 more pounds from where I’m at. Now, I’m not a scrawny person, and I understand that BMI and ideal weight is very much relative to your muscle mass etc. So the question stands, where do I stop? My next goal is 170. I’ve never been below 175 in my adult life so being at 170 would be pretty incredible.
At this point, I’m interested to see what my body might look and feel like in the 160’s. I doubt I’d maintain a weight there, but, it might be quite interesting to see myself at my ideal weight.
Have any of you ever been at your “ideal” weight for you height, age, and gender? Was it something you were able to maintain? How did you feel when you were at that weight?
