I really didn't know what my goal was or my ideal weight. According to Protein Power my ideal weight was somewhere in the range of 128-139lbs. So by that measure, I have achieved the goal and I didn't find the last 15lbs of that to be any more difficult or slower. But according to the Fast 5 book, my ideal weight is really 115lbs. Woops, now I've got about 18lbs to go to get there. I can foresee that being incredibly difficult to do, especially anything under 125lbs. So I don't know what my goal is and haven't decided if I'm willing to do what it would take to get to 115lbs.
