We have such a huge variety of people here at 3fcs, but if you're anything like me you're searching for the ones that are enough like you to reveal some hints about your future! It's a bit embarrassing, but I find myself filing through the Goal/Minigoal photo albums looking for other women who are 5'3"- 5'6".

But in reality, there's much more to body type than simply height and weight (as you know). So feel free to write your measurements as well! It might be more fun if you'd like to put a before/current comparison!

Start: 260lbs, 5'4.5"

(inches):
Bust: 47
Natural Waist 38.5
Hips: 53.5
Thigh 34.5
Upper Arm 16

I can't find the notebook with last time's measurements, but here are mine for this time. I carry a lot of weight in my arms/legs compared to other women.

I don't remember my starting measurements, but her are my current ones:

Height: 5'3"
Current weight: 165lbs

Bust: 40"
Waist:31"
Hips:39"

I know all have gone down 5-6 inches (except my bust, which went down 3).

I don't really track measurements, but every once in a while I pull the tape measure out. I'm glad you posted this thread, because I know my hips have never been under 40 inches until today!

Height: 5'4"
Weight: 137 lbs

Bust: 36.75"
Rib Cage: 31.5"
Waist: 27.5"
Hips: 39.5"

5'6'' around 176
Bust: 37
Waist: 31
Hips: 43 (holy pear)
Thigh: 27.5

5'6'' around 165
Bust: 37

I measure everything--as in 14 different parts. I have been losing in odd places, like my neck, wrist, and ankle. My goal is in 1 yr to lose 100 inches (and incidently, 100 lbs). I started June 1st. In June, I lost 12.5" and July 4.5 overall, all over.

June 1/July 1/August 1/loss:
Weight: 259/248/242 (-17lbs)
Bust: 48/47/47 (-1.0)
Waist: 44.75/41.25/41.0 (-3.75)
Hips: 54/52/51.75 (-2.25)
Upper Arm: 15.75/15.25/15.0 (-.75)
Thigh: 30.5/29.5/29.0 (-1.5)

I can't really remember my starting measurements, sorry.

Current measurements are:

Bust: 33 (B cup) - reduced from a C cup.
Waist: 25.5
Hips: 32
Neck: 12
Wrist: 5
Forearm: 7
Thigh: 19.5

That's all I really ever measure.

Height: 5'6"
Current weight: 117 lbs. Starting weight: 135-140 lbs.
Starting dress size: 8
Current dress size: 2

BTW, on paper it might seem that I'm a bit um, light for my height but I'm small-boned and always have been.

I keep my measurements in my ticker but I started at roughly (I don't remember exactly at what weight they correspond to but probably around the 220's-210's).

Bust 48
Waist 40
Hips 46

My current measurements (they tend to vary a bit so there's a range here ;) ):

Bust: 40"
Ribcage: 32.5-33"
Waist: 33-34"
Largest part of waist: 39-40"
Hips: 42-43"
Thighs: 25.5"
Upper Arms: 14.5"
Neck: 13"

Right now I'm wearing a size 10-12 (depending on brand) and either M-L shirt. My bra size is about 34G? Maybe even a 34H... however, I've found cutting off some inches from the back of my old bras works better than buying new bras in larger cup sizes/smaller band sizes so I'm not 100% sure of my cup size.

ETA: I had to change my thigh/arm measurements. Turns out I've lost half an inch off of both! :D

Lol...

I'm 5'6". My waist is 54 inches at the largest point right now, and I'm proud of it. I'm 7 months pregnant... haha... need a couple more months off before I start up all this measuring again. Just trying to stay healthy and maintain weight right now.

My starting measurements from a little over a month ago were
38-31-35.5

now they are
37-29-35

not much difference but it hasn't been that long. I'm just a bit disappointed that so far there is almost no difference to my hip size. I'd much rather the loss came from my hips that from my bust. But then nobody can chose where they lose the fat from.

Thank you! And yes, except your waist is much smaller than mine! I totally identified with your post though when you said that you carried a lot of your weight in your legs - I do too, and I'm still wondering when my thighs are going to start shrinking more noticeably, lol.

I was still angry with my thighs last time- when I reached 160- but not nearly as angry as I am now :p

LOL. They were the first place I gained weight when I began putting it on way back in high school, and so I'm sure it will be the last place it comes off. I'm guessing I'll hate them forever. :cry:

Thanks for starting this post. I was just wondering yesterday how many inches people have lost in their journey.

Ok here is mine from the start of making a serious commitment to living healthy but not from my heaviest (260 sometime before Dec 2010).

I didn't measure until I had lost about 15 pounds, but here's what my record says:

Approx. 225 lbs
Bust: 46
Waist: 40
Hip: 52
Thigh: 32

Last August - Approx. 200 lbs.
Bust: 41.5
Waist: 33.5
Hip: 46
Thigh: 29.5

Now - 159ish lbs.
Bust: 37
Waist: 27.5
Hip: 40
Thigh: 25.5

I feel like my top half is quite compact now, but my hips are still pretty big and my thighs are ENORMOUS!

I am rather new to the measuring myself thing. I have no feeling for what's small and what isn't.

Starting weight 156.5
Current weight: 142.2

My current measurements are:

Thigh: 26 inch
Hips: 38.5 inch
Belly above navel: 32 inch
Belly below navel: 34 inch
Ribcage: 31,5 inch
Calf: 16 inch

I've lost 14lbs, but almost all of it has gone from my upper body. I really start noticing it there slowly but surely.

On the 1st and 15th of each month I measure and record my measurements in the back of my food log. I measure places like my neck, thighs, calves, biceps etc. It's been a better way for me to keep track of my progress and maintain than to rely on the scale.

On May 1st I measured:

Bust: 37" (DD)
Waist: 29"
Hips: 39"

Those measurements may sound huge, but I'm tall, fit and strong! I got smaller at one point and I looked sickly.

I wear mainly a size 10 but can get into 8's as well. I love my curves! :)

5'3" (just barely)
169 pounds this morning

Bust: 44 in
Underbust: 34 in
Waist: 36 in
Hips: 42 in

I'm still fighting post-baby belly flop, though as of today I officially have the all-clear to begin exercising again (finally!) and tighten those muscles back up (consequently cinching that waist back down).
