Puerto Rico

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

So I am pretty sure that I'm going to be in Puerto Rico for the month of June with Elsie and her kids. How cool is that? I'm really excited. It will be great to show off my fit, new shape and also practice my spanish with them.

Looks like my body is loving 155. I have been steady at 155, keeping up with my calories and exercise. I think I could lose a little more weight if I pushed myself.. but I love this size on me. It's wonderful. I just hope that everyone realizes what their goal weight will look like. I feel like I see many women with very low goal weights and I think, hey why dont you adjust that? 120 pounds isn't always the best weight for a woman. Sometimes its 140, 170..200 if you are tall. Just something to think about.

    Wow!!!! I totally agree. About a year before I started SP I was 214 lbs and I told my cousin, I want to be 145lbs she said "no you don't, because you will look sick". emoticon Since joining SP I had got all away down to 143lbs and people were actually concerned about me being sick (suffering from anorexia) emoticon I stopped working out for a week just to gain some weight back. With me being about 5'7 I guess that was not the right weight for my body type. What I did is make mini goals and every time I reached one I would create another.

    Absolutely. I know I've ended up being pretty happy where I am. Wouldn't mind shaving off a few more pounds, but I'm not going to stress over whether it happens or not. I look better and feel better than I have in a LONG time. Of course, on someone a lot shorter than me, 120 might be just fine. heh

    I totally agree with you!
    Not EVERYONE should want to be a 120 either, especially if you are very muscular, or very tall! I did a "Happy Weight" calculation through Chatelaine magazine that said my "Happy Weight" is supposed to be 125! I'd look emaciated at that weight!!! I like the fact that I'm muscular, and I don't want to loose more weight then I think my body should! My goal is to be physically happy and healthy :)

    I see lots of goals that are even lower like 100, 105 or 110. Many women my height want to weight far less than 120. It makes me feel like my goal of 126 currently is huge. I look in the mirror and I'm not huge. Perhaps, these women that want to weigh 110 or less don't have my heavy bones or they don't know how thin 110 is.

    Read the last section of Finding the Perfect Weight. You have to please yourself. No one else!
