I think you are doing a great job so far. And I don't see why you couldn't lose that 6 pounds in the next 5 weeks. They say not to try for more than 2.5# a week. but the main thing is that you feel healthy and happy. Good luck on your journey. Sparkpeople is a great site for getting healthy and learning to stay that way.

My goal is to make it to old age and die without needing home help in my old age.. Ask any elderly person living in a assisted living complex how invasive it is to have help to everything..

BMI calculators can give you a starting point for your goal weight. It still depends on your body type.

here are some Spark articles that should help

I'm curious because I don't know what kinds of goals to set for myself.
I've been on a diet for about 7 days, using sparkpeople for 5 days, and I've lost 4lbs already.
I weigh 175 right now, hoping to weigh 169 by the end of May. Is this a normal or realistic goal?
What are your goals?
