I don't think you're crazy, but I wonder what happens when you're 115 lbs? I'm not trying to sound snarky, but what does 115 mean to you? Why do you have that goal?

I'm 5'6", about 122-125 pounds and I feel pretty good at this weight. I've been 115, still felt good, but I was noticeably thinner and that got a lot of "positive" comments (being called skinny isn't necessarily positive or a compliment). I've noticed that now I don't get a lot of those type of remarks, but I don't really care because what does that mean anyway? Three years ago I was 104 and I felt like I was dying, withering away to nothing, had no energy, felt and looked sick and fragile -- yet people (mostly women I worked with) said they wished they were as skinny as me, wished the scale gave them a number less than 120. Did they also wish to have lupus and a bowel disorder? Did they also want to be in pain and having diarrhea 8 - 10 times a day?

Right now I feel good, alive, and healthy -- and beautiful -- and that means more to me than what the scale says. Anyway, I can understand following numbers on a scale for health reasons -- as a symptom, for example, of lupus activity; but I don't know what else that number really means or even matters.
