I have decided to see if I can get down to 140 pounds, which may get rid of some of my remaining back and belly flab. I'm not expecting miracles and I haven't seen that number on the scales for years but thought it was worth a try. I'm 5 foot 7 inches, so 140 pounds is not unreasonable, is it? What do you think?
Give it a try @stowgateresident. You'll soon know whether it will just be too hard (nature's way of saying No) to maintain at 140, and whether you will like the way you look and feel at that weight. It wouldn't be an unhealthy BMI, for whatever such a crude measure is worth.
