Size 8 jeans today! (size 15 to size 8)
 


hope this provides some inspiration!
What do you guys think? Do you think I can get down to a size 4? I still have quite the gut on me because I'm apple-shaped and store fat in my midsection. I never have hips or butt, even when fat.
What do you think my perfect size might be? Ugh, I wish I knew so I could focus on that as my goal!


Those are my Size 15 jeans from September 2013. I'll definitely continue to keep a pair for comparison pictures and to remind myself how fat I was.
I can zip a Size 6 closed currently, but they are skin-tight. Size 8 is comfortable.

I've never worn a size 8. I remember wearing a size 10 in middle school, size 12 in high school, and then size 15 in college. The last time I was perfectly thin was in 4th grade. Starting in middle school, my weight slowly increased each year until I ended up in size 15 at 216lbs.

measurements:
39" hips
37" waist, widest part at the belly button
31.5" waist, narrowest part at the bend in your torso

According to numerous websites, despite my healthy BMI, a waist size greater than 35 inches is considered high risk and unhealthy.

Great job! I think you look awesome but if you wanted to go down a bit further I'm sure you could. Regarding the waist size, women measure at the smallest point, so your waist size IS healthy :)

Even if you use the smallest point, it's still high risk when you look at waist to hip ratio. Waist to height ratio is ok.
http://www.buzzle.com/articles/waist...ent-chart.html
You have a Waist to Hip Ratio of 0.82
You have a Waist to Height Ratio of 0.46

I know it's hard to see because of the jeans, but here's pictures of my fat. These pictures were taken only 5lbs ago and I've only lost about 1/2 inch on the midsection and 1 inch on my hips/thighs of course because they still want to shrink instead of my stomach. You can still grab a hefty handful of stomach blubber.
