My scale says I'm 4 tenths of a pound away from my goal of 130 pounds. It's quite possible I'll reach that milestone this week.
At 5' 6.75" my BMI is currently 20.5. it was more than 25 when I was 29 pounds heavier in November.
My focus will turn to building more strength and muscle. My yearly checkup is next month and I'll ask some pointed questions regarding how my shoulder injury should modify any exercises I do for Chest, upper back, arms and shoulders. I tweaked it during the January Jumpstart Fitness challenge. (4th week of the same exercises that hadn't hurt me before!) It's getting better, but flares up easily.
Does anyone know whether adding muscle at this point will make me weigh less or more? I'm less concerned about the final number on the scale than I am with the final shape and maintaining it. The clothes I wear now, fit me when I was more muscular and 10 pounds heavier. I guess I'll have to play with this some before I know what my maintenance weight range should be.
Thanks for your help and support through this journey. It would have been much harder without you!
