Today in the Weekly Link Roundup: What's Hot? What's New? by Stepfanie Romine there was a link to The Happy Weight Calculator from Self.
"We all have an "ideal" weight in our mind, but what must you sacrifice to get there. This fun calculator helps you determine a goal weight that will allow you to be happy and healthy! "
I thought it would be fun to see where I am in my happy weight so I followed the link and looked around. One link of particular interest to me showed me that indeed I do have a large frame as I was told when I was about 15 years old! Simple test, tape measure your wrist and check the chart for your height. I did both wrists and was surprised they are the same! BTW, you can put in half inches for height, ie: 5' 1.5" is what I entered.
My "happy weight" would be 129.1 which made me chuckle since I am 131.1 today and have been stuck in the 131's for about 3 weeks now. So near and yet so far. But not one to be complacent, I also followed the link for Ideal Weight Range and that was 100-134 so the median weight would still be in the 120's.
I just wanted to share the info with anyone that misses the Daily Spark Blog. It made me happy to learn I am this close to my "happy weight" finally! Never dreamed it was even possible and here I am just a few pounds away!
