5' 7" - 5' 8" What is you CW & GW ?
Hey, I saw an interesting post for 5"3 - 5' 4" to list there CW and/or GW... I thought it would be interesting to get the same perspective of my own height range... Smile

Remember... we all have a different physical makeup, so don't feel bad about yours... rather embrace it! I'm trying to be realistic with my weight... I hear of so many women who are like 110 lbs and I wish I could be too, but I weight train and even if I loose the fat I gain muscle... so I have kinda a love/hate relationship with the scale Laughing

CW = 175
GW = 160

You know, everyone looses incentive at some point. Often when we find ourselves taking a step forward we end up taking two... or even ten steps backwards... but the key is having a dream - why are you trying to loose weight?

If it is for someone else, that will never be enough - it doesn't matter what someone else thinks when they see you... in this world of supermodels on every magazine and fitness programs on every billboard each person/society has their own idea as to what "healthy" or "attractive" is... and that opinion changes every other day without fail! The fashion industry is built on ever changing styles... (if they weren't there wouldn't be new releases, seasonal wear, or trend setting designs for every new year) When you finally become someone's ideal - their tastes and desires will have already moved on to the next body type.

If it is for how you view yourself understand that no one is perfect - we all have flaws, we all desire to be something we are not and quite often we are not content until we have what someone else has (ever experience that feeling of... I wish my eyes were blue instead of brown ((or vise-versa))...) Really, even when we become our "ideal weight" most of us still aren't happy... we have to learn how to find things about ourselves that we like, appreciate, and even love. Maybe you have a great smile, maybe you're really good with computers, maybe you're super personable... or so many other attributes! Find something and focus on that.

If you are working hard for either of those reasons then there is no point to loose weight because you are just trying to fit into a status quo and you'll never really be content or feel good about yourself...

But if you are trying to loose weight to be healthy and happier and overall more able to live life fully and freely then that is the best incentive you could ever have- because no matter what happens in the course of your weight loss journey you can always pause and remember the reason you started. "I want to be healthy" or "I want to be able to enjoy every part of my life and live without limitation" Those incentives are the most life changing because you are moving forward to a more energized version of you! Then when you take those steps backward it isn't that you're letting anyone down or feeling like a failure, 'cause let me tell you something - A FAILURE IS ONLY SOMEONE WHO REFUSES TO TRY. No one else is a failure, they are just on the way to success Wink

Don't quit - have a focus, have a dream, and a reason to keep moving forward... and if it's for the right reasons you'll never look back.
