How tall are you, if I may ask?
I'm 1.92m with a wide frame. A lot of my current weight is in my thighs due to all my walking and cycling. My current weight goal is only so that I have something palpable to aim for. My real goal is getting rid of my belly and moobs and if that means I end up above 100kg that's fine too. Since I've shed 15kg off my body I don't feel hindered by weight anymore.
