I almost forgot about this weeks question! I can’t believe it. I normally look forward to it but I’ve been so distracted by new new MAC! ;~P
A-n-y-w-a-y (I’m feeling a bit goofy tonight, please forgive the over the top voice inflections that are going through my head.)
Chatting with my friend Anne today, we came up with this question. It’s actually something I’ve wanted to ask for awhile as I know many people are curious. I mean, really how do you pick a goal weight? Is it something you weighed before and want to get back to? Or a weight you heard is a good number for your height? Maybe it’s goal your doctor recommended?
For me, it was a number I’ve never seen, at least not in this adult body. I remember clearly the day I found out I weighed 150 pounds I was 13 years old. I’m not going to go into all the hairy details, I talk about it a bit in My Story but let’s just say that was the start of my 15 year yo you dieting fiasco.
So when I had to pick a goal weight for Weight Watchers I thought about that 150 and how I would LOVE to be that “chubby” girl once again. Then I thought, “heeey, w-a-i-t a min-ute (see… crazy voice inflections – think Mater in Cars) wouldn’t it be cool to see a 4 on the scale. I’ve never seen a 4 on the scale!” And so my goal weight was born!
Not as scientific or magical as you thought? Hey, I’m still shocked I not only saw a 4 on the scale, but for some times I was in the 3’s!
How about you? How’d you pick THE number?
