    I have my UGW as 90-100 lbs but i also have like a weight for when I'll get treatment? Not actively pursuing but if I get as low as 83 lbs I'll get help. Does anyone else get this?

    Do you know a good weight loss calculator only ? The kind where you right your UGW and they tell you how much you need to eat to achieve it. Don't know if it is accurate but If you know one that was efficient for you I'm interested. tks

    My ugw keeps changing, I don't know what a realistic goal without dropping my BMI below 16 is. Currently I'm 5'5,124 lbs. Any help/opinions appreciated~ And I'm curious, how many of you have reached your ugw before? I've reached goal weights before but I need a ugw to really feel some...

    I was thinking today about how there is a small part of me that is actively afraid of hitting my ultimate goal weight. Not so much because of any physical damage it might do to me, but because of two things. One is how getting there would mean having nothing else to focus on - no longer being...

    I just finished the novel "More Than a Number". It was better than I thought it would be, and it actually spooked me a little bit, which doesn't often happen when I read eating disorder fiction. The main character got to eighty-eight pounds - which is my ultimate goal weight - before something...

    Yeah. I'm very short. But what would you guys (kind of addressing the whole website here? idk) say is a good ugw for someone who's 5'1 and wants to look slightly underweight? Thanks in advance for the feedback! (also sorry if I seem awkward I literally made this account yesterday rip in peace)

    I'm curious as to how people chose their UGWs (and yes, I realise for many this will never be enough, so for some it may be just some random number). Some people choose round numbers or round BMIs, but others seem to have odd numbers, like 76lbs or 36.5kg or a BMI of 14.2. So I'm curious as to...

    I'm 5'2 and this morning I reached my goal weight of 90lbs. And now I just don't know what to do with myself. Do I carry on losing weight? Do I recover? Or do I try and maintain (which will be hard!!)? Physically, I feel drained and I'm in a lot of pain, can't focus properly, low mood etc. My...
  11. Starting at a higher BMI
    I have so many goals, just because I've created shorter goals to get me where I ultimately want to be. For example, I'm currently 5'1" and 165 lbs so my current goal is 150, but once I get there I'll have a new goal. It's pretty obvious 150 is just a stepping stone goal because thats still...

    MY UGW; It's temporary, then I'll slowly go back to my toning/running/high restriction once I'm at my UGW to level at my GW. Why do you have both a gw and ugw? Do you want to stay at your ugw or is it something you'd like to see if you can do? Would you be okay with never reaching UGW but a...
