Hey y'all... I'm between 5'2 to 5'3 and totally a pear-shape. I currently wear 13-15 jeans and L/XL shirts and dresses in junior sizes. 12/14 jeans, M/L in misses. For dresses, S/M, some L depending on the cut and style. Looking forward to fitting in my size 11 from Target that I bought for motivation- probably 15lbs for me to fit in it because of my saddlebags! I usually shop at Kohl's and Gordman's.

We seem like we're built similarly. I'm 37/26/37. Before having a child, I was consistently 36/24/36 - I wonder if I can get her to take away that inch now!

I've been maintaining for more than two years now, but when I started in June 2011 I was wearing a size 14. I'm not positive what my weight was then because I didn't weigh until I had gotten down to the size I wanted to be, but I'm guessing I was about 180 or so. By Nov. 2011, I was fitting into 6's & 8's. Now I'm mainly 6s, with the occasional size 4 and sometimes [rarely] size 8. I fluctuate between 135 - 138. I'm 5 ft 3.

I just checked out your goal post - WOW! Your maintenance photo is what I'm striving for! Once in my life I got into similar shape (unhealthily) but this time I'm trying to go for it in a healthy and sustainable way. You look fabulous!

5'2" here. At 175 I wear size 16 jeans. At 140 (my pre-pregnancy maintenance weight) I'm an 8 or 10, so I think that works out to about a size every ten pounds or so. No clue what size I am at lower than 140, but I hope to find out...

Nikolette - I know what you mean. I wear much smaller pant sizes, but I have built arms and I'll never fit in a size small shirt. Medium is my goal lol.

Ok - So I'm at 158ish now and I feel like 4-5 more pounds and I'll be a solid 10 pants (no 12s to be had). I usually get a XL jacket, but I ordered a Large one that I love to keep me motivated to lose 5 more lbs to get safely under 155. Can't wait for it to come - hopefully it will fit, with a bit of snugness for motivation.

BTW all - thanks so much for the responses!! It's crazy how much our bodies fluctuate. Love seeing so many people that have lost weight. I've stalled for about 2 years, but I'm trying to drop those last 25/30 lbs.

Thinking 145 is a safe size 8 weight for me. ;-)

I'm 5ft 1 .... At 222lbs I was in a size 22 dress 18 jeans. I'm now down to 158 and in at 10/12 dress and 8 jeans. However a lot of that is excessive belly skin that I will be having removed on 4/22 so I'm anxious to see what size then

I'm 5'2 and I really only know my jean sizes. Tops and dresses aren't very standard, I'm anywhere from an xs to a L depending on the cut and fabric.

These are my approximate jean sizes during my weight journeys (up down and up again):
<117 = 24
117-125 = 25
125-135 = 26
135-145 = 27
145+ = 27/28

I'm 5'4'' and currently a size 14 in jeans at 195lbs. A couple years ago I was getting into some 8/10 pants at 165lbs. I felt really good at that place so that is my goal once again.
