Default Goal size??

Do you mind telling me your goal size? I know...I know...don't compare. But we all do it! I'm just curious because goal weights have become fairly meaningless to me. It's messing with my head.

My goal size is a 6. I'm currently an 8 in most stores, although I can squeeze into some 4's.

Sizes are so inconsistent that I try to ignore them. Because if I buy a size 2 and it fits, some part of my brain says it's ok to pig out. In reality that size 2 is often the same size as my size 8s.

I am about your hight and weight and I can wear anythng from a 6-12. My jeans are 8 to 10 depending on how much spandex is in them. I have been on a hunt for all cotton jeans (not a fan of spandex) and have only found 3 brands that have all cotton, Lucky- reily, wrangler and a brand called cruel girl. I wear a 10 in all of them. I wear a M or a L on top but I am a 32DD on top so sometimes I have to do an L to not have it be too tight or too short.

I would like to take off another 15 LBS but for now I am just maintaing as I am on a lot of medication and have been doing fine. I am ok at this weight for now because I can eat, exercise and I feel good in my cloths. I think for me it might mean i am at my goal even though it is higher than it should be on the charts. My health is far more important than any number on the scale or my cloths. I really do think it is about living your life and feeling good.

I am short. So, ideally I will be able to get into about a 4. However, right now I will be happy with a 12 by the time I get married in July. But who knows, currently my size is between four sizes. I hate sizes. LOL

Goal sizes.......sometimes I can't even bother to think about it. As you can see, I am 5'8" tall. I have a pair of Lee Jeans that are size 12....too big. A pair of Levis that are size 12...just perfect. Some dresses that are 10...too big. Some other dresses that are 12...perfect fit. But get this....a 5/6 dress...PERFECT fit!!! Some size 'S' tops....too big!

At this stage I am just want to look good in whatever I wear.

Jeans are just another rant entirely. I like all cotton jeans too. Whoever thought spandex in jeans looked good after an hour's wear was nuts! All cotton holds in some of the jiggle and sag! LOL!

I know sizes are random. I guess weights are just random too.

I would love to be in an 6/8, however, I can fit in an 8 at some stores and a 10 at others. However when I weighed the least I still wore between a 6 or 8. So I guess really I just want to look and feel great in what I wear no matter the size!

I'm tall, so my current size is probably a lot of people's starting size. I'm UK size 14 and happy with that. I think it's 10 in US size. At my official goal I was UK size 16/US 12.

I don't really have a goal size, since sizing is so inconsistent. I have some 10s I'd love to fit into again, and I suspect by the time I get to my current goal weight, i should be able to. I'd love to get down to a large shirt - I'm very large chested, so I suspect that unless I get a reduction, I won't be able to wear anything smaller than that without, uh, advertising what I'm not selling . When I was 115-120 lbs, I wore a 6 or a 4 (in pants), but that was years ago. I don't think I'll ever get that small again, but I suspect at the same weight I'd wear a smaller size now, just due to vanity sizing.

My official goal size was a 10, but I think I'd like to shoot for a 6. I don't know if that's humanly possible with my awesome child-bearing hips, but heck, why not try?

8-9, right now i'm a 12 in most jeans. my hips are naturally big so i'm not going to overestimate my goal size. as long as i can just get to my goal weight, i'll be happy!

Goal size: Be able to fit into Jeans from Express... not that I actually want to buy them... I just want them to fit. They used to only go up to a 12, but now I have heard a rumor they go to size 14 now?

I am a 16 right now... but they are getting nice a loose... SO CLOSE to getting into some 14s. If I got down to 12 and was comfy there, I might stay. I would like to be a 10, though. I used to want to be an 8. But that was before vanity sizes. I couldn't do it then, BUT I MIGHT be able to do it now...

But then again, I like beer too much. I would rather be a 10/12 and drink beer than to give up beer just to be an 8.

I'm not quite sure what to expect because below 200 pounds in unknown territory for me. I haven't been there since (a long long time ago! ) maybe the 10th grade. I don't even remember what size I was at that point, but it's irrelevant anyway because sizing has changed so much.

Right now, at 210, I'm in size 14. I'm guessing size 12 in the 190s, size ten in the 180s/170s, size eight at my 165 goal. Holy crap! Size EIGHT!?! That can't possibly be possible, can it?
