How far can you go?...
What do the height/weight charts reckon?
I knew before I finished reaching goal (I still reached it out of stubborness) that my maintenance sitting weight should be 3 kilos heavier. I read a book a while back where a woman didn't know when to stop. Her husband, family, friends and doctor had to tap her on the shoulder before she got the message. It is hard to call it sometimes. Many people wanted me to stop far to earlier. My doctor was happy when I had just lost 30 kilos...I still had another 57 kilos to go! In the end I stuck to the charts...in the range of healthy weigh for my height I picked two thirds up from the lowest weight.

According to the weight watchers gurus (which is what I usually follow) weight range is 63-79kgs, heart foundation is 59-79 my bmi is 23 so I'm in the healthy weight range. I'd like to personally see if I can achieve 73kg just to give me a few KGS extra but it depends on how I look I don't want to look sickly/poor. I'm 178cms tall. I'm just going to take each week as it comes see where I end up I don't want to turn into one of those people that can't stop. II'm over the moon with what I have achieved.

Glad that you thought it through and got it all well in hand. I think it would be tragic if someone came out of the fat end of the spectrum only to be trapped in the thin end! Both conditions are extreme and yet have much common ground.

Part two of this journey will come for you soon. Maintenance. The key word on that subject is "vigilance"!

though I better log in and let you all know that I am still here. I do go on here and read entries just don't post on my own one. I am still happily sitting in the 75 range, i must admit i have slackened off on the exercise front probably only exercising 3 days out of the 7 and some days eating more than what i should but i seem to balance it out, if i eat too much one day i really knuckle down and watch what i eat for the next few. i know when i have eaten way too much, the sluggishness, tiredness & bloating sets in and you feel YUKKK!! Plus there is no way on hell that i am going back to where i was thanks very much. I have made a pledge to myself that i am to walk 6 days this week, so far i am 2 for 2 i must walk briskly for an hour. I do a lot of incidental exercise throughout the day (i am a cleaner) so that helps. Have gotten out the weight watcher recipe books and gone back to meal planning. my biggest downfall is snacks and dessert :roll:

Good work Buttless! 8)

Maintenance is a whole new ball game but with much the same skills involved.
There is no longer the glory of breaking down to new low numbers - only the movement in a small range. Draw a line in the sand and make that your red zone marker. That will keep you from drifting too far from where you need to stay.

Now you will find that you can have a few more "treats" in your life but always strive to keep them as treats and not to let all your good work slip away. You will soon find your feet and the rhythm of your new healthy lifestyle...but always remember your future success dependent on a watch word - "VIGILANCE"! Those that do not - do so to their own peril!

Best wishes on your better future! 8)

Good work! If you can maintain the weight on your own food planning and not weight watchers you must be doing the right thing!

Snacks are my downfall too, mid to late afternoon is a killer!

Only one good remedy for this...plan to be too busy mid to late afternoon to snack. Make it a special exercise time (maybe a walk so you are not near your kitchen cupboards and fridge) instead of dead waiting time before dinner finally arrives.

Another idea is to have your snack planned for the afternoon set up in the morning. Set a small healthy snack ready and get your head into the idea that anything added to it is unacceptable behaviour.

have your snacks on the bench for the day,know what you are aloud too eat,
eg two fruit,yogurt and a treat.....
then don't eat any more once they are gone they are gone....
also if you find you really arnt having enough,make a no sugar jelly,i think they are weight watchers,
stick a yogurt and banana in them and that is lovely for the afternoon and only 2 points....
it makes a lot with nothing at all wrong with it and will get you through the afternoon..

and drink water....drink water like theres no tomorrow..

What I was trying to say (I sooooooooooo hate not being able to "edit" posts!!!! :evil: ) if you're drinking the amber stuff and not enough of the clear stuff (to counteract) it would not be helping your weight loss efforts. :oops:
