Yes honestly. I dont care about my apperance. I was no happier with my apperance or less happy with it. But i had the number ive wanted my whole life. No desire to lose any more. I did lose more by accident while trying to maintain though.

No I was so miserable and my.life was in tatters and I felt so guilty and physically shit as well. I was constantly afraid of dropping dead on the street or being sectioned, and the sadness that I felt for my friends watching me deteriorate was the worst of it all. The guilt. But, now I'm in recovery and I romanticize it and wish I was restricting again and following all my rules, but like girl wtf shut up I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. It's weird how your brain can trick you into wanting something so badly, but also knowing that you don't

Sometimes I think yes I’m happy with it but those are very few and fleeting. most other times I want to lose more

Momentarily, yes. But I've surpassed like 3 UGWs by this point and I'm creeping towards a new one, at which I'm not going to be satisfied either. The moment I see a certain number on the scale, anything above that is no longer acceptable. And I have the mentality of "Ok, I want to be xkg or I've reached xkg in the morning now, so I should lose just a bit more so that I'll be that weight during the day." Or "I'll just lose a bit more so if I accidentally gain it won't be bad." But the thing is, any weight I achieve I always think the same. Nothing is ever low enough when fluctuation is taken into consideration, nothing is ever worth gaining a single pound from, so I end up lower.

I have not hit my ugw, I don’t actually have one. I’m still pretty big, but have lost 100 lbs. My eyes are set on getting to at least 20 BMI. I’m at 23 right now and need to lose 20 lbs.

I wanted to add to the thread because my brain keeps going back and forth. People say I’m skinny/tiny, my husband doesn’t want me to lose weight, my loose skin will just be more noticeable...but each time I take a progress pic, I’m shocked by how big I looked, and to think I thought I was skinny in that pic! How embarrassing. When I lose 20 lbs and take a progress pic, the body I have now will be embarrassing.

So I’m not even sure I’ll have an ugw.
