Welcome. How you look doesn't totally depend on how much you weigh. Marilyn Monroe was not skin and bones. 60 lbs. is probably an unrealistic goal to start out with. Better to start with a more quickly attainable goal then reassess yourself and make the decision whether or not to lose more. A goal of 10 lbs. is a good start. That doesn't mean you won't end up losing 60 lbs., you'll just do it 10 lbs. at a time and have the option of saying you like the way you look and feel at any point and starting maintenance instead of continuing to lose. If you overwhelm yourself at the beginning you may give up, and giving up is the only thing you can do wrong.

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.--Socrates

Welcome to healthy hearts. By the time you get near your BMI, you will know whether you need to lose that much weight. Just use common sense and best of luck to you. Don't forget to take it one day at a time.

I get to do this!

When I first joined this site, the site decided that it would be enough for me to lose about 36 pounds. That's not so bad. Then I went to another site that would show me what I should look like at my target weight goal. I still looked fat. I think it might be because of all those scrawny models out there. Anyway, whatever the case, I decided that I want to lose even more. Now I have 60 pounds to lose. I hope I did not set an unrealistic goal. I used the BMI chart to help me. Plus I never had a baby so that has to help. Right?
