When Doctors and WW disagree

My doctor thinks I should probably be 118-120 lbs. Weight Watchers Online thinks I should be no less than 124 lbs. (I have a light build, and not much muscle mass.)

The thing is, I'm training to run two or three lengths of a mega-race this summer, and frankly I'd prefer to be carrying as little weight as possible if I'm going to be running 13-26 km up and down the mountains. (I've gone 0-6K since September; now to get another 20K in before July!)

So I guess this is me, re-committing to losing that last 25-30 lbs at long last. I've been staying around a plateau for a few years, because technically it's a healthy weight and I've been able to live comfortably, but I'd like to lose the last bit before the race, and especially before I turn 40.

So here are my stats:

Height: 5'6"
HW: 215 lbs
SW: 206 lbs
CW: 147 lbs
WWGW: 124 lbs
DRGW: 118 lbs

Wish me luck! (both at the weight loss and the race; I haven't run a race of any sort since high school.)
