When I originally picked my goal weight, I chose it based on a few factors, but told myself I'd see how I felt when I got there and would readjust it if need be.
I've been mulling it over for about a week. Now that I'm here, I feel great, my confidence is up, and I'm doing things like buying dresses without trying them on. At my previous weight, that would have been a crazy idea! Anyways, what I'm saying is that I'm happy where I am, but I think that I can still reach a little more. I've made some fitness goals unrelated to weight this year and I think losing a few extra pounds would help me achieve those too. And honestly, at this point it is for vanity purposes. It has never been purely vanity inspired in the past, so I consider this one of my rewards for the previous work I put in. :)
I've rarely been at this current weight in my adult life so I'm not sure exactly what I should set my goal at, so for now I'm going to set it at 138 lbs. That would give me a 50 lb total weight loss. And who doesn't like nice even numbers like that? That is a weight I've NEVER been at in my adult life so I'll be interested to see how I feel then. Like before, I'll readjust up or down once I get there.
