Default BMI and weight isn't everything

Set a goal weight. If you reach it and you feel "right" with your body maintain that, otherwise tweek the goal and work to that.

It's not just about the pounds, how do you feel in clothes (and out of them?)

The BMI is defective for athletes who weight train and build muscle as the muscle weighs more than fat. Something to consider if you're at 10% body fat but the BMI says you're 25.

It's all about you and how YOU feel...don't get hung up on the numbers.
