Changing goal weight to goal size

Thursday, March 08, 2012

So lately I've been thinking a lot about how I can't get myself past this spot on the scale. I've been going up and down from as low as 151, up to about 156 for months now, still in a size 10 pant. My goal weight is 145, but now I'm thinking I should forget about that. I'm changing my goal to get into a size 8 pant instead of hitting 145, which honestly I'm not sure what weight a size 8 would fit... it might still be 145-ish. But if I want to fit a size 8, I need to lose a couple inches I think to fit into them comfortably. I just need to get past this rut somehow, because the scale has been so discouraging lately since I keep bouncing up and down. The only reason I can come up with is that my body is in a healthy spot now and doesn't want to go any lower. I've just started working more on my lower body to help, even though I know you can't spot reduce, but I'm hoping it'll at least help some. When I was losing weight, my body was using most of the fat on my stomach and only a little bit from my hips/butt. Lets hope working on my lower body more will help get me into the size I want to be in!

Any suggestions would be awesome!

    Hi, I think that in an effort to jump start your weight loss again, you need to shock your system... in other words, change your eating habits...example: try eating lunch for breakfast, & breakfast for lunch. Or if you like cheeseburgers, eat a cheeseburger & FRIES!!!

    In the end, if you still wish to change your goal weight, do so, but know that whatever you set your mind to do, YOU CAN!!
