You have reminded me that unless I have a balanced life, losing weight isn't going to be enough.

I think you look great, but what YOU think is what matters. You might try to pinpoint concretely whatever you are disappointed about. From there: 1)If you can change the thing, work to changing it. 2)If you can't change it, work toward a thankful/appreciate attitude.

You look great! If you're at your goal and still not quite satisfied, try doing more strength training. It will tighten up all your muscles and grow muscle mass. You may end up weighing the same but will get a flatter tummy.

I get it too, I'm 119.5 pounds right now at 26, was 91 pounds at my lowest adult weight when I was 20 (I'm 4'10"), and even though I notice a definite difference in how my clothes fit from then to now, when I looked in the mirror then I still had a belly like I was about 7 months pregnant, just like now. I'd really like to have a flat tummy, but don't know if A. I need to be even smaller than 91 pounds to achieve it (and if so, how low do I need to go?), B. I need to work on my abdominal muscles to achieve it (I'm doing sit-ups now, so hoping they will help), or C. I'm just genetically destined to curve out instead of in and may as well get used to it.

Don't be disappointed. You've done a great job losing the weight and getting healthier! Give yourself a big pat on the back! :)

Sometimes I think we pick these numbers for a goal, but it isn't until we begin to approach them that we know whether the goal is going to satisfy us (eg - too much, too little). The "recommended" weight tables out there should be taken as a loose guideline in my opinion.
Your body looks great, but if you are not satisfied, set a new goal! Maybe see how 2 more pounds looks and feels. On our petite bodies, tiny amounts of weight can make a huge difference. And watch out for the naysayers -- there are a number of people out there who for some reason cannot tolerate others' weight loss goals. You are in charge!
You really are very beautiful, but go for more if you want it!

I think you look great as well. I understand though I'm going through the same thing. Really close to my goal, and I shift wildly from being very satisfied to feeling like I don't look amy different from when I started.
Keep up all your hard work. I'm trying to journal and figure out what might help me.

Congrats on your progress. Maybe i'm biased because you're pretty much at my goal weight but I think that you look FANTASTIC !! Great job -- don't be discouraged.
