I said my weight loss goal is between 140/150 (closer to 140). She said at 5'1 height and 54 yrs old, my goal should be 115/120. What do y'all think?

I have never been one to go by the Barbie chart….I’m 5ft 4 and my goal is 150 because I dont look like what i weigh…I have a lot of muscle and i was most comfortable at 150…but I will,still be overweight….

I’m 5’5” and Gw according to the chart is 135. When I hit that goal I was living off coffee and little food I looked like I had jaundice. It was a sickly look. I’m ecstatic at a curvy 150 and comfy at 165.

My SW was 206. My doctor told me I could expect to lose 85 lbs. This frightened me because on my wedding day in 2000 at 34 years old I was the fittest ever at 138 lbs and a size 2. I still have the 501 Levis I wore at that time, after two kids, waist 28. And I weighed 138! My theory is to not put so much emphasis on weight, because we all carry it differently. It’s more about inches and how you feel. Best to everyone!

My surgeon originally told me to have a goal of 200 lbs. I’m 5’9″. I was less than that 2 months post op. My lowest was 145 and I looked sickly. I maintained a scrawny 155-165 for 10 years, now am pleased at a muscular 170-175. Doctors make suggestions, but BMI charts don’t account for muscle, general health, and many other factors which, to me, are much more important than my height:weight ratio. Unfortunately, doctors know what they’re taught, so many still think BMI is an accurate indicator of health. Your weight will fluctuate. Don’t get hung up on numbers. Find a happy spot where you feel strong, confident, and healthy.
