I've just changed my goal weight from 118 to 123.
I'm pretty sure that I'm thinking about this topic prematurely. I'm also pretty sure that my exact goal weight number is not even knowable until I reach the top of healthy BMI range, but, oh well. It's fun.
My reason for posting a higher number for goal is that I not only want to be thin but also muscular. I am coming to accept the fact that a muscular me is going to weigh more than a simply thin me. In my head, I have glorified being under 120 pounds for so long because I associate it with the "thin me" that I was ten years ago. However, not only am I ten years older now (and thus some things will be different), but I am also desiring a much more muscular physique than I've had previously.
I'd like to come up with some mental technique to help me break out of my emotional response to weighing under 120.
A work in progress am I. A work in progress.
