Well, I'd be happy losing 30.  Ideally I should probably lose 60, but I've always been a big person and pretty muscular.  Even when I was in my prime, I was a lot heavier than most other people my size.

I want to lose about 20 lbs. This would put me back at 120 which is a great healthy weight for me

Good question, I'd like to lose between 10 - 20 lbs.  I have gained due to inactivity with my knee problems and it is really frustrating trying to lose weight when you can not do much for physical activity.  We are thinking about getting a recumbant bike - maybe that would help out some.

Good luck to everyone with their weight loss.

Hugs,  ;)

I'm with Danielle on this one -- I've got a massive bone structure...even when I was a size 4 I weighed about 130 and I'm only 5'2".  My legs have ALWAYS been bigger than the rest of me -- because I'm fairly muscular too...the side effect of 14 years of ballet, I suppose.

I just wish I could get into my "skinny" clothes...they're SO cute!  Hey...maybe hobbling about on crutches will burn some calories, eh?

Peace,
Jen

I can't actually remember what I put down now lol.

But my weight changes so much anyway. In a week i've been known to gain/lose 8/9 pounds. It's ridiculous lol.

Only bit's of me that seem to have fat are front torso and a bit on inside thighs. If you look and feel my calves though they are like lumps of concrete lol. I would be much happier if the fat I do have was distributed evenly. Then I would be happy with how I look. But that isn't going to happen lol.

At the moment I am definately losing weight though. (Despite what the scales say), everyone can see it and have commented on it. Since jan it seems to gradually sped up how fast im losing it. SInce I took that picture in my avatar I have changed a lot (Will change it because I honestly look nothing like that now)
