5'8" - what's a healthy weight, really?
Tuesday, March 02, 2010
So here I am, on my journey to my goal of 150lbs and I am currently over halfway to my goal from where I started. I am feeling good and looking much better and when I tell people that I still have 44 lbs to lose, I always hear the same thing.... "GASP"! They can't believe I still have that much to lose. They say "you'll be anorexic"!
Really now, that's what the powers that be who make the charts say I should be and that's the MIDWAY mark. I have a medium frame and I'm tall. I realize most of me at this point is probably muscle (I guess?). I'm 194 right now and I'm in a 14. at 150 I'll be in a 10?
I really want to be that weight (my high school weight) but at the same time, I don't want to look sickly and it kind of bothers me when I see the notes that are dubbed by health professionals that state if I weigh more I'm considered "overweight".. Hmmmm..
Odd it is..
