I feel slightly guilty for not wanting to train down more than 4 inches due to budgets and practicality. I know no one’s judging me for my goals and the community will still accept me for staying at such a slight reduction, but I feel like I’m supposed to want to train down to my body’s limit like so many others.
Don’t feel guilty! Not everyone here wants to reduce a lot. I’m not dead set on a goal measurement myself. I’m mostly after good posture and a nice shape is just a pleasant bonus! I don’t think I’m going to go past 22” (my natural waist is 27”). Who knows, I might change my mind once I get there. The point is, if someone judges me for not being curvy enough or not reducing enough, that’s their problem, not mine. :)
