That all being said, I am an online member, so it isn't as big of a deal what goal weight I pick. There's no lifetime for me!
This helps. I've been doing a little research too- I think the "perfect" number is the one you feel comfortable at in the healthy weight range for sure. My husband thinks I'm done but I'm 1 lb away from the top of the range.
That being said- I saw online that WW used to calculate it as:

Take your height-- (I'm 5'9") and take the amount of inches (9) over the 5 foot mark and multiply it either by 5 if you have a small frame, 6 if you have a medium frame, or 7 if you have a large frame. (I'm either a medium or a large?) Mine would equal either 54 or 63.

Take that number and add 100 to it and that is more in line with what the end result could be. So mine would be 154-163. I think it's not far off for me, but when I was talking with a friend who is also on WW but a lot shorter- she said she HOPES it's not right for her

I was thinking of revising it to somewhere between 158 & 162. I guess I'll see as I go along. Either way -- you and I are almost there, lady!! And it's going to be SWEET when we get there!

I lost 70 lbs on WW 4 1/2 years ago and I've gained it back plus a few extras. I started WW online last week and lost 2.5 lbs! I'm confident I can be successful again. I'm a little older so I know it will be a little harder but I'm so tired of living the heavy life. I just want to be done with it. __________________ 1976: Fort Wilderness Campground 1992: Honeymoon - Big Red Boat & Contemporary 1999: Off-Site 2002: All-Star Movies 2003: Hard Rock Hotel & US/IOA & Sea World 2003: DCL Wonder & Caribbean Beach 2005: DCL Magic 2006: Nick Hotel & US/IOA 2007: DCL Wonder & POR 2010: Polynesian (!!) and DCL Wonder Double Dip (!!) 2012: Aulani Hawaii 2013: POFQ (Vocal Motion) 2014: Poly (Vocal Motion)

Amazing! Congrats! Those gains usually work themselves out if you are staying on track!

I traveled on Fri-Sun and ate out a lot. We went to Olive Garden and I asked for my salad to have the low fat dressing and I ordered one of their lighter meals with shrimp. My NSV was that I only ate ONE breadstick . We also ate at Golden Corral and I filled up on salad first. I *did* eat a couple of things that were not ideal but I didn't go completely overboard since I wasn't hungry after eating my big plate of salad. Unfortunately, my exercise came to a complete halt! I was OK early in the week but the weekend away did me in. Then, I tripped over my own feet and bruised my left knee badly. I was able to walk at a slow 3mph today for about 20 minutes. I was supposed to Zumba but there is no way my knee would handle the lateral movements. Maybe tomorrow. __________________ DVC Member since 1997 Walt Disney World 2013 * Disneyland Paris 2012 * Disneyland 2011 * Hong Kong Disneyland 2007 * Tokyo Disneyland 2007

Non scale victory....like fitting into jeans you couldn't wear before, or getting onto a Disney ride with no trouble.

I got out my fanny packs (yes, I dare to wear them -- comfort is more important to me than looks). They were tight around my waist in 2010 -- one even had an extender. Well, they are tight no more! And I won't be needing the extender either!

Wearing my size 10 red pants today. Wore them this summer to C6 and they were a bit tight. Now I need a belt!!! Down again this week. If only I were 5'8'' instead of 4'11'', lol, I'd probably be in a 6 instead of a 10.

Way to go! Do you have Mickey fanny packs? I use to have black leather/pleather ones with Mickey heads on them. The one had little Mickey heads the other a big one in the center. If I still have them, I have no idea where. I carry a bagellini messenger bag or hook a back pack on ds's w/c.

 02-15-2013, 09:01 AM #1738 pwdebbie DIS Veteran     Join Date: Jun 2007 Location: between Chambersburg and Gettysburg, PA Posts: 3,108 Nope, no Mickey fanny packs. One blue with a water bottle holder and one a bit bigger in black. I should go buy some lime green contact paper and cut out a few Mickey heads and stick to my fanny packs. I might not be stylin' but at least I'd be theme'n!
