I find it so interesting to see how people are so different than one another. Like I'm 5'4" and weigh 138 and am a size 8 (snug) and some women can be my exact height and weight and be a comfortable 6 or 12 depending on how they carry their weight. And everyone's weightloss goals are different depending on that exact thing. So my question is, what is your current weight, size, and what is your goal weight and size???
My current weight 138 size 8/10
goal = 125 size 6/8

can't wait to see everyone's response!!

Hi Spryng!

My stats are:

Height- 5"8
Current weight 154 lbs
Starting weight 185 lbs
Goal weight 145 lbs

Current dress size- 10/12 depending on the cut
Starting dress size-14/16 again depending of the cut
Goal dress size- 8/10

My plan is to be healthy fit and toned-I am not dreaming of a size 2:lol:

I think your clothing size varies with the manufacter's cut, meaning the size on the label is not always the exact size of the garment- that is why you can try on several size 10s in different stores and they don't always fit the same way... also weight is distributed differently on each person. For example I can fit into a medium t-shirt but have to take a large in pants and skirts because my weight is in my butt, hips and thighs. Other people may be top heavy and have smaller hips. Also if you are broad-shouldered this will affect your shirt size.

Hi! I am new to this website, but am hoping that it helps me out. I am 5'11" and currently weigh 275 lbs. I am hoping to get my weight down in the 150-160 lb range. I know I have a long way to go, but I'm determined this time. As for clothing size, I hope to be able to wear a 9/10 by the time I get to my goal weight, but I'm going one day at a time.

I'm 5'9" and 204 lbs. I wear size 16 jeans and extra large shirts. (But I like to have my shirts kind of big). I will shoot for a size 12 but pray for a size 10. :D

I've always found the different sizes worn by the same weight and height person as me. Rycherbabe is the perfect example. I'm 5'8" and 210 pounds but wear a size 20 jeans, but have a pair of size 18 jean shorts that are loose on me. Go figger!!

My goal is 150 pounds, 10/12 jeans

Wow! You must carry your weight really well because I was a size 16 when I was 160 lbs. Now at 135 I'm an 8 but a tight 8. So you will look great when you hit your goal weight!! :)

current: 5'8, 208 and 16-18.
last recorded high (although I'm sure I was higher): 231, 20-22
goal: 160, 12

Almost 2 years ago I was 231 and 20-22. I just realized this minute that I've done the actual "move down sizes while the scale hardly budges," because I haven't lost anything much but have more or less come down two sizes in the last few months. Gotta be the exercise!
