Yo, I have an inspirational story for you: Gracie Gold’s Battle to Save Herself (hope it won’t be pay-walled for you). Dunno if you follow figure skating at all, but the women who compete in it are elite athletes with insane training schedules and huge pressure. The story is about one of the best, who fell in a deep pit of depression and – this is buried way down in the article – “her deteriorating relationship with food now involved binge-purge cycles.” And she’s coming back.

whats your goal weight?


#642

@Squizzle tbvh I’ve been thinking about that since I still have a bunch of fat to lose even though I’m close to my goal. Will discuss with my psych to make sure I’m still mentally in the right space, but rn 48kg by the end of Feb & 45kg or 43.5kg by 2019. If I still want to look better, I’ll shift my focus to body recomposition then! :smiley:
What about you?


#643

I don’t quite know, been overweight/obese for as long as I can remember. But 80 is a number I am aiming for, will be easier to determine if thats appropriate when I get close. At 108-109 current so, I’ll leave that to future me!


#644

Why did you choose a certain weight and not fat percentage and or measurements?
