I’m going to have to reverse it:
5’4”
Goal size: 243 (100 lbs gained)
Current size: 263

That’s the problem with goals like that. When I finally hit my goal, I thought: “NOW what?” I didn’t have a plan, other than to keep eating and gaining because that habit has become so ingrained. Now I’ve outgrown almost all my clothes and I’m starting to feel uncomfortable—yet that’s also a major turn-on, and a part of me wants to go for 300.
I guess I’m conflicted.

I'm 6'4, and around 375. Would like to get down to about 300, and go back lifting weights

The great white north, eh?
Have you heard discussion of the 'K-shaped economic recovery'? (where some parts of the economy are doing great while others are really struggling, like the two right lines of the K, going up and down). I have K-shaped goals. The more rational part of me would like to get back to around 220 (in some ways lower, but I don't think I could hold my weight lower than that). But the more emotional part of me would like to keep gaining up to at least 270. It seems likely I'll muddle along somewhere between those two, but only time will tell.
