Default Board length after weight loss

In November last year I weighed 185 pounds and bought a Gnu Carbon Credit 159 as I was bang in the middle of its weight range.

Since then I've got really into running and I've lost 36 pounds as a result, with probably another 5-10 pounds to lose.

Is my board too long for me now? I tried a friends Bataleon Whatever in a 156 and it did feel easier to chuck around. Would I be better off on something shorter?

I like ride a bit of everything, mostly groomers, some trees and a bit of park.

I'm heading out to Whistler for four months this season so want to be sure I'm on an appropriate board!
