I dare you to be honest!

What number on the scale or size on the clothing tag could you simply not handle? Is there a magic number or size that you refuse to allow yourself to get to? And what is your ideal size/weight?

I can be honest. My whole life I've struggled with my weight. I would weigh 150 and be like, okay, not gonna go past that. Then I would weigh 160 and be like okay, not gonna go past that. Then I weighed 185 and said okay not gonna go past 200. And so on and so on. Now I'm 280 and not only am I NOT gonna go past 300, I'm gonna LOSE weight.

Well I'm not at a happy number now but I guess I would say anything over 180 or a size 14.

My ideal weight would be between 140-150. For me that's a 6-8 which is manageable. Anything smaller and I'm working too hard to maintain.

I want to get back to 11/12 right now I'm in a 15 :( I want to lose weight but I have no motivation. Lol I say I will do it and never do. I need a workout buddy. Someone to push me out the door.

I only really gain weight when preggo and then I have a heck of a time getting the weight off afterwards. After my 3rd I have been a size 12 no matter what I have tried and I have been struggling with feeling depressed from it. I am short and petite so it is not a healthy weight for me. It's finally starting to go a little bit thanks to yoga and I am hoping to get back to my ideal weight which is 110 and size 4. That is when I am my healthiest and feel my best. :-)

My true breaking point was when I was able to fit into a size 26 comfortably. At that point I weighed 274lbs. I was 5'4" tall. I'm now 143lbs and roughly a size 12 due to pregnancy.

I have been the size I am now since I was about 18, I like it and am happy with it (I'm a UK 10-12) I would be fine with a 14 but a 16 probably not

Well I'm trying not to get to 140 so maybe a size 7. My ideal weight would be 115ish so size 2 or 3

I'm pregnant right now. But hope to not gain much more.

After this baby I'm aiming to loose 50 pounds.

I'm 160 right now and wear a 5/6 jeans(well not now that I'm pregnant) and a large/xlarge in shirts

I want to be a size 2 jeans and I could settle for medium tops becuase I have big boobs.
