What Do I Do??
Wednesday, August 05, 2009
This is where I'm at...what do I do?? I had my weight goal set at 164, which is at the top of my range for my BMI. I even started this journey with consulting my primary doctor...He told me initially that he would be happy if I made it to 200 lbs. I started this journey at 240.6 lbs, now weighing in at 171. I visited my doctor last week & he told me to get to 170 and stop if I chose to because of my body structure BUT he would prefer if I could get down to 160...He gave me a note for WW so that I may make Lifetime at 170...I have been having a rough time getting fully back on track after a whirlwind of eating the week of July 4th...I've been doing well this week with a few minor slip ups. Basically, I have been maintaining, with a small loss this week. I just don't know what to do...I say that I am happy where I am but deep down inside, I am wondering what if I made it to 164...Is it just a number?? Currently, I am wearing the size that I dreamed and longed to wear (size 10) and I even can fit into some small shirts!! That's another thing, my body is pear shaped, therefore I lose more on the top than on my bottom area. I don't want to be any thinner on my top and I can't tell my body WHERE to lose the weight!! Essentially, I need to make a sound decision...Do I maintain at 170 OR continue to the 160's?? What's a girl to do?? Looking for input from my Spark family...Thanks!!
