    Ok so - have just looked and seen that when i reach 12st my bmi will be 30 - which is on the edge between overweight and obese.

    I really dont know what to do now!
    My original goal is to be as close to 12st as poss by the end of june as a i have a holiday and then refeed but now i am thinking if my bmi is 30 shouldnt i still carry on with LT?

    Thing is - i am only 5'2 and my ideal boy weight is between 8.7 and 9.7 stone (i think) but i really wouldnt look right. The lowest i have been is 10.7. My mum is roughly same heigh - maybe an inch smaller - and she is 9st and i think she looks awful. she looks ill and too small so i dont want to look like this.

    Now i have a dilemma - do i try to get my bmi down once i reach 12st or be happy with 12st and take it from there?

    **Just looked again and to be smack bang in the middle of the healthy bmi section i would need to be 8.7stone! no way! they can run and jump!!

    You'll never know, it might not be too bad. Depends on the person. But if you get to 12st and you are happy with yourself, nothign else should matter :)

    Very true girls - it is what i feel comfy at.
    Hopefully once i get to 12st i will feel ok but if not i think i might stay on LT for longer after a holiday break - which totally goes agains what i believe in for this diet :(

    just go with your instinct. I think if you feel good thats a major thing.. One thing I strongly recommend tho is going to the doctor after it. He will decide if you are a healthy weight and not in danger of anything etc. Its not fully about how you look, its about your health too

    I do follow the BMI chart to some degree. I want to get down to 9 stone, but if I look in the mirror and see myself and am happy with my body and it's the way I want it, then sod 9 stone :D

    I'd agree with others, go with how you feel.

    I set my target weight yesterday (went for the highest weight in the healthy part of a chart, lol) but have no real idea of what it will feel like so maybe I'll carry on (yikes) and maybe I'll feel 'right' before I reach goal.

    I think everyone's different it's hard to say what 9 stone might look on you, even compared to your mum.

    Summergurl,

    I'm the same height as you. The lightest I have ever been was 9 stone and I was told to stop losing weight.

    My aim this time is to between 10 and 10.5 stone which I think I look more in proportion as. Unfortunately when I was at my lightest, I still had big boobs as well so looked as though I was about to topple over !

    But it's about how you feel. Again at my lightest - I felt really boney and uncomfortable to sit.

    hth

    I'd stick with when you feel comfortable, and don't pay too much attention to either BMI or weight particularly. My Pharmacist also says the BMI table thingie is rubbish and not to take much notice of it. I'm now comfortably in a size 14, but apparently obese!!! If I lose a further 3 stone, to be in the 'normal' range, I will look ill so I'm bu**ered if I'm going there! (and I don't mean buttered!)

    Years ago I did Slimming World, and there were 2 girls, same height, exactly the same size, yet one was a stone heavier. Was one overweight? No, they were both a trim size 12, and if the heavier one lost a further stone she would have looked ill.

    Do what's right for YOU, not the textbook. I'm sure you will look lovely and be healthy.
