Sooooooo Close! Or am I?

This week I lost 1.6 and so I am only 1.4 pounds away from my goal weight!!! If it doesn't happen next week, I'll still be happy.

Honestly, now that I'm close to my goal weight, I feel that I would be more comfortable in the 125-130 range. For the past few weeks I've been tempted not to share that with my loved ones and friends because I've been getting a lot of comments on how I'm getting so thin, maybe too thin. I don't see it and I also don't believe body image distortion is to blame. I posted on a Weight Watchers message board about this and the general concensus was that people who are overweight or have many overweight friends or family tend to be the first ones who will judge someone in a HEALTHY weight range as too thin. Ultimately, this is my choice.

I will get to 135 as my goal for Weight Watchers, but then it is my personal goal to become more fit and active through exercise as I have been inconsistent about including extra activity in my day. I will continue to follow the maintenance program of WW, but will also monitor my hunger levels and avoid overeating. If while living an active lifestyle, my weight continues to drop to the 125-130 range, then it will be because that is what I am meant to weigh at my healthiest. I don't think I should be chastised by my loved ones for wanting to be as healthy as I can be.

I don't think they are chastising you, I just think you need to look at where the advice is coming from. Who that is talking to you is trying to sell you something, and who is simply concerned for your well being. Your loved ones just want you to be healthy and happy. We are the ones that will stick by you either way, and don't charge for our love or attention. hehe

It is important that you are comfortable with your self image and healthy, and in the end you are the only one that has any say in that.

All the same, go you on being so close to goal. Go Lil Bear!

I think as long as you're eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly, your body will stop loosing weight at a healthy weight for you. Just keep up your good eating and exercising and just see what happens.
