    My first goal has always been to get to my weight at BMI 25 and then go from there. It's so hard to tell, especially if you have never really been that size so don't know what to expect. If I get to BMI 25 and feel fine I'll stop but if I feel like I want to keep going I will.

    I know exactly what you mean Rade, and I think thats why I find CD hard to stick to at times. Im wearing mostly 14's and think I look "OK" now yet im still obese according to my BMI. Ive set myself the target of BMI 28, which for me is about 12stone10 (im 5ft 7) I think its important to have some sort of goal to aim for rather than just waking up one morning and deciding you are done.

    Dont forget you may still lose a bit more during the steps to maintenance. Good luck and hope you make the right decision for you. xx

    I was going to go for a size 12/14, but actually, cos I've got a large frame and big mahoosive boobies, I'd look ridiculous that slim, so I'm going for a size 16/18 now

    I am going to adjust mine when I get there.

    I have a large skeletal frame so would be aiming for the top of the weight range rather than the bottom.

    We have to go to a weight that feels/looks right for us.

    yeah i think your right.. it can be hard when you look at yourself though.. it would be great to see the old you in the mirror then a second later the NEW you..! the gradual change makes it hard to appreciate how far you've cme! lol

    I'm aiming to be a comfortable size 12 - I'm currently in 14s and have just over 2 stone to go to my target of 10 stone - ideally I'd love to be 9 stone something but don't want to be too skinny! OMG that sounds so odd - worrying about being skinny lol
