I started at 272 and only want to go to 195, which for 5’6” that’s on the cusp between overweight and obese. I’m curvy and the person I like likes my curves so I don’t want to lose them lol. I just hate the way I look in clothes and like I don’t look well in the styles I like. At worst I might drop lower than that and reverse diet by working out to build muscle back up to 200lbs at most. I was a size 16 at 200 but would prefer to be a size 14 or 12.

I've always wondered what it would be like to be underweight just once, but I'm not sure I'll ever make it there. I'm already 32 and with PCOS and autoimmune issues it's so hard to lose weight so I think I'll be happy with a normal weight after a lifetime of obesity

my highest weight is 27 and my lowest is in the 14s. i felt hideous at both. i don't think my weight will ever make a difference to how i feel about my body.

 

but i think my brain would have less ammunition if i was in the low end of the normal range.

I'm 164 cm and my current ugw is 120. I'm going to drop it the very second I reach it, though.

I'd give just about anything to FINNALLY be underweight again like when I was a late teenager, but honestly, I'd settle for being in the middle range of "healthy"...

Posted 21 September 2021 - 02:38 AM

Long-term I don’t mind maintaining BMI 18.5 (around 50kg for me) because it suits me and I’d know I’d only have to lose 3-4 kg to have my favorite bone stick out again. But no, I wouldn’t say it’s my “goal”.
And with anything higher than that I could still LIVE you know, but I def wouldn’t be happy. Above 55kg is the cut-off for “fat” for me though, this is the highest weight where I can sometimes have moments of liking my body, and 60kg is a number I never in my life want to see again.

Highest BMI: ~42, “Obese class III”
Lowest BMI: 15.something (stopped weighing), “Severely underweight”
[went from highest to lowest in ~14 months][it fucked me up rlly bad][0/1000 don’t recommend]
Constantly not good enough
Also have ocd, bpd and depression (all dxed)

I haven’t been a normal weight since middle school. So yeah I really want to get back to that. But unfortunately I’m short so at a normal weight for my height, I looked way fatter than I actually was. I don’t think underweight would be sustainable for me since I’d have to be like under 93 pounds. I think 100-105 would be nice

I def feel that want to be a 'normal weight'. My goal right now is about 200, which is that golden size for 5'7. When i go below 200, I dont look much different. when I was 16 and at my lowest weight of 164, I still wore a size 12-14 pant. Same size I wore at size 200. Wide hips suck. Then I lost my ass and chest at 164, which the later was good. Former sucked. Its frustrating. So 200 seems healthy and sustainable for me. Ill never be under 150. I somtimes hate it, but its the hand ove been dealt.

Yesss! I had been doing just fine at 120lbs but then I spent a year eating my feelings away so I am now 150lbs. I am looking to get back down to 120lbs. I am 5'4 1/2 feet tall. So this would be ok. however, even back when i was 120 I still felt too big. so i might go down to 115lbs which is clinically still at a reasonable weight for my height!

yeah im very much kind of in the same idea of “it depends on what i look like at (weight)” because i’m really aiming for the lower end of healthy weight for my height (which is like, 123 or 125, smtg like that) and if i’m not impressed with that i have an idea in my head of a ugw of 108 and past that i don’t think i can go any lower and still keep up what i want to do. lol.

god i’m the same height and that’s what sucks about it. at this height normal/overweight/obese to a certain degree all kind of look the same until you get into the extremes 😭 i haven’t been under 150 in any recent memory and i’m on the same goal of getting to 200 (35lb weight loss from my current) wishing you luck! it’s really nice seeing someone that knows their body so well yknow?

I'm 5'2 and my current goal is 136 just to be at a healthy weight as I have never seen it as an adult. But my overall goal is between 110 and 120 but I'm not really banking on that happening, so I would be more than happy with 130 lol. I'm currently 147ish.
