My goal is to get under 200. That will still make me technically overweight on the BMI scale but it will also make me a very happy person, not to mention the clothes I will be able to buy!
Yeah, I call myself fat too. Technically obese. But you have the right idea, get it down to a weight you are comfortable with even if it's not quite the medical ideal.
And once you've reached your goal you can celebrate with a big shopping spree. I'll repeat my advice of hitting SYMS, FB, etc. to get that "portly" size if it works right now. Have it tailored. The great thing about well fitting clothes is that they can hide those flaws. I somehow look much thinner when I put on properly fitting trousers, shirts, jackets, etc. It amazes even me.
best of luck,
