Slimming down the aisle
I'm trying to decide what I'm going to set as my goal and was wondering how you all did it? My BMI says that 12 stone (I'm 5ft 9) is the maximum that I can be without being 'overweight' but to be honest, I don't put huge amounts of emphasis on BMI. I don't think it's all that accurate. I did the Dukan diet calculator thing and that suggested that 13st 5lbs would be my ideal maintainable weight. So I was thinking of setting my goal as 13st 5lbs and then seeing how I feel when I get there. Any goal that I set is going to be completely flexible, I'm not the kind of person who once I have a number in my head, I stick to it. I need that number for a goal post in sight, but it can move. So I don't really care if I get to 14st and go you know what, this feels comfortable for me and I stop. Or if I get to 13st 5lbs and feel I need to lose a bit more. I just think that whilst I really do need a goal post, the way that I feel in myself and in my body needs to come before that. I've always been fat since I was a kid, so I don't have anything to go by as what's normal for me. Anyway I'm rambling again, sorry!
