I've never heard of that '143 perspective.'


Yay for wanting to get to a healthier-for-you-weight -- whatever it happens to be. thumb.gif


I started on a path in June 2010 to lose 100 lbs in a year -- knowing that I was about 125 lbs too heavy for my height and for what I wanted to do with my life (i.e. be more active with my family, and LIVE for a whole lot longer.)


I've lost 100 -- now have my sights set on that extra 25.

i LOVE this.  love it.  i actually have a tattoo of 143, because of the 'i love you' and it coincided with the street number of a communal household we (the residents) loved so much. 

i'm shorter but stocky framed, i have felt healthiest when i weighed in the 140s. 

i'll set that as my goal, too.  i can get pumped about that. 

Is it getting lonely in the echo chamber yet?
