I am 5'8" and trying to figure out a reasonable goal for myself... Right now I am shooting for 150-160, at my fittest I was at 140 but I had no boobs or butt! But who knows, this goal can definitely change as I get closer :) What are your ultimate goal weights??

I'm at 160 right now and I actually love the way I look!
October 8, 2012 9:36 AM
I'm about 137 lbs right now but I have very small bones so I'm aiming for about 130 lbs!

I'm almost 5'8" and was 178lbs when I started on MFP. My original goal weight was around 135, but I got down to 141lbs last summer, and realized that I was losing all of my curves. I think I look the best around 148-150lbs. I'm not really concerned with losing weight right now though- I just want to strengthen and tone my figure.

As you start losing weight, and adjusting your diet, you might need to adjust your goals as well.

I've set my goal for 140. I've been there before, but think it might be a bit too skinny now (I'm a few years older). I'd like to get under 150, and I'll revise once I get there.

I agree with everyone on this thread. My original goal was 150, I am sitting at 143 (size 2 or 4) right now and like 150 (size 4 or 6) better. My rear and boobs are gone :( Now I'm working hard at the gym and eating a bit more.

Right now I'm at 153, aiming for 120-125, about 15% BF. More concerned with being toned and healthy, not 'skinny'

I started at 175lbs. I'm 159lbs now. Goal is set for 145lbs. Like a bunch of other people said, this may change as I get closer. I'm leaning more towards 140lbs as of now.

I think it depends on your body type. I am 190 my goal is 150. I am curvy and pretty toned (despite my extra weight). I pretty much stayed in the 140's and 150's after having my first child and I loved the way my body looked then. I no longer want to be stick thin like I was before having my babies (120-130's). I think my curves help balance me out.

I think 145 is where I am super happy but its been a long time since I have been there. I am 50 pounds from that goal so if I find my happy place before I get there, I am willing to reevaluate.

I am going for 145.

My goal weight is 63kg or 138lbs. My starting weight last summer was 75kg or 165lbs.
I am just at arm reach - I am almost at my goal! :D

I was thinking of 61kg or 135lbs but I altered my goal since I dont want risking losing my curves ;)

By the way I am 174cm or 5"8 and a half.

I was at 150 a few months ago and went up to 155 after backing off exercise for a medical reason. I'd love to be 145-150! It's tough being so close to your goal!
October 8, 2012 11:28 AM
I'm going for 160
October 8, 2012 11:29 AM
I'm at 140. I was at 125-130 at my fittest. I think somewhere around 130-135 is good for me since I've got a larger chest that I don't want to lose.

I'm 5'8" and I'm currently at 169 lbs... I've been at this for a while, but find that I keep losing my motivation and coming up with excuses to go off plan or stop exercising.

I have my goal set at 135 right now, but at my lightest, post-babies, weight I was 145 and I was pretty happy there, but like a lot of others I'm afraid to lose my curves so I'll look and see what happends when I get there.

I started at 163 on my own and 153 with MFP. I initially wanted to be around 135, but I am at 141-143 and I am pretty happy right here! Now that I lost the weight I am working on toning.
