    What do you think i should do about setting a final target.
    i originally wanted to get to 10 stone but it doesnt give me much to play with, as i could go to 10.3 or down to 9.11.

    what about if i set it at 10.7 then if i wanted to change it would that be allowed?

    i am 5'7" and of medium build (even though it's covered in a couple of layers of blubber at the moment).

    Hey Hun, I set my goal weight at 2st as I wanted to get down to my weight before my kids. I also looked at the BMI scale and decided that I wanted to be in the middle of the healthy range so that i put on a few pounds or lost a few then I would still be considered "healthy". Its such a personal thing that only you can decide. I don't attend class but I am sure they would allow you to change target if you wanted. Hope that this helps x
    P.s do you know how to get bmi information to show on a profile? as I can't get mine up and I like to keep and eye one it. x

    You can change your target weight as long as it is 7lbs different from the original. I have set mine at 10.7 but when I get there if I lose more I will move it to 10 stone:)

    Just looked up "healthy BMI" mine should be from 18.5 to 25. So should i aim for 10.7 which would give me 23 or 10st which would give me 21.5

    I would say don't worry too much about your ultimate target for now, you don't need to choose just yet, and you may find that a higher or lower weight thank you expect suits you. For the moment, I'd pick an intermediate goal such as Club 10 (where you've lost 10% of start weight) or even "the first half stone" and when you've got to that have a little celebration and pick a new target.

    same here - I'm nearly at 10 stone but I'm already starting to think that I'd like to be a couple of pounds under 10 stone now!!
