19.1 currently.   I am less than 2 months out of  another round of treatment.  They get me up to 21.5-22.    Goal is 18-18.5.   Decided it probably isn't great for me to keep diving low.   I lose it all, and end up in treatment for months on end regaining everything I have lost.    I will settle for 18-18.5.

I'm currently at 16.7 but I am aiming for 14.5 and I guess see how I feel and look then. Apparently I look "plenty healthy" atm. Will I survive it? I keep wondering that myself!

18.5 currently ugh ... 16 would be ideal I've been there before but not in a long time. It's so much harder now that we're older isn't it. Plus 16bmi at 45 doesn't look like it did at 18 does it 😔

Anything less than this, which is very overweight since I went into recovery. Then I got injured and sick and it got worse.  I've been trying to lose since the beginning of the year.  I will for awhile, but then I'll binge and the weight will return :(  

 

idk how I was able to restrict so easily when I was younger, and now it's the opposite.

I don't have a BMI goal, it's not something I've ever set, I always check my bmi but a low weight is definitely my priority.

I've lost 17 lbs since I made this post, but BMI is not a huge concern for me since I have a lot of muscle.  Most bodybuilders are considered obese when they have low body fat.

I am currently at 22. I want to be 18. I have never in my life been able to say, "I am underweight." Even if it is only for a day. I want that moment. 

 

Update: 11/6/19 - BMI now at 19.1, 5 pounds to go and I will be underweight for the first time ever. But do not think I will have the energy to celebrate. lol. My blood pressure this morning was 81/44, I am thinking that is not good. I am not even sure what day it is right now.

I’m 21 which looks and feels horrible on me. Def have a lot of fat. My desire is 18.5. I’ve been lower but people start to look at me in the street out of concern which I don’t like.

every time I lose I lower the goal. Currently 15.2 and want to be sub 15. If that happens, I know the ED will make me push lower :(

Current is 21. Plan is for 18.5-19 - still within healthy range, but just barely. Last time I posted here I was 23, so I'm moving in the right direction... but so sloooowly!

Currently 22 (why does it feel so much higher???)

Ideally need to be between 17.4 and 18.5

I do well there. Any lower and it ages my face terribly. I'm 52. 5.4"

Someone said menopause is s bitch.
I agree!
