Ummm… what?

I just had a moment to look at a printout I was given at my 3-month checkup this morning. It’s a weight chart with my goals and percentages and all that jazz, showing all of my weigh-ins at their office.

Do you know what their goal is for me?

131.2.

One hundred and thirty one point two pounds. Do you know when I last weighed that much? When I was fifteen, playing sports, anorexic, and a SIZE ZERO. Seriously. On me, 130 pounds is a size zero.

I don’t know why this goal cracks me up so much. I mean, my personal goal has always been 140. But 131.2? That just seems crazy for an adult!

But who knows. Maybe it wouldn’t sound so crazy if it weren’t so far away.

  1. You know – my goal is 140, but I think it all just depends. Seriously, if I were 150 and looked and felt great… I’d be thrilled with it.

    My doctor gives me nothing like that – so at least you know they’re really tracking it. I sometimes don’t get that feeling with my surgeon.

    My PCP tracks it and will talk about it with me, but the surgeon – I swear – I wait for 1 hour minimum, and am in the office for 5 minutes – he looks at my scars, and that’s it. It’s really anticlimatic!!

    Really though – I think that you’re the only one that can choose where you want your body to be… so keep an open mind, and shoot for the 140 – and see how you feel when you get there.

  2. Wow. I was never really given a goal, I was just sort of told that it was likely that RNY patients get to a certain point and rebound.

    130 is my “personal” goal. I’d probably be a size 4/6.

    I’ve been looking at it for four years now. STARING BLANKLY AT IT. I know it really doesn’t matter, I will still feel fat at 130 because of the excess skin, BUT… I look much better IN my clothes 15-30 lbs lighter than I am now.

  3. I think your body will let you know where it wants to be when the time comes, tho I would not be able to imagine that number for myself either. I’d be really happy at 150.

  4. you guys crack me up, cause I’ll be dancing the aisles when I hit 200. For reals.
