Question Clothing Size/Weight Match Game

What weights did you find yourself at these sizes or do you think you'll be at these sizes, or were you when you were AT these sizes, whatever variation.

For me it was....

24- 250
22- 235
20- 225
18- I'm hoping 210?
16- I'm hoping 190
14- ???
12- ???
10- ???

What do you think?

Height: 5'9''

298 - Busting out of a 28 (literally)
275- 26
255- 24

Which averages out to be about 25 pounds per size. AGH!

My highest weight was 249. I could still wear my size 18 slacks, but couldn't fit into size 18 jeans.

My lowest adult weight was 132 (about 15 years ago). I mostly wore an 8, but had a few pairs of 6's.

It takes me a LOOOONNNNGGG time to go down a size.

I kept a little notebook of sizes, measurements, weights, etc.
This is just approximate and all the sizes are women's sizes, not juniors.

190 lbs = Size 16
180 lbs = Size 14
170 lbs = Size 12
160 lbs = Size 10
150 lbs = Size 8
140 lbs = Size 6
130 lbs = Size 4

250 lbs = 26/28 (busting out, too)
230 lbs = 22/24
220 lbs = 20/22
215 + lbs = 18/20

I have the typical apple body shape. So, my legs are really not "plused sized" and get very muscular and toned very quickly. I am noticing my arms are becoming the same way. Now, my mid section...let's not talk about that.... Guess I better start those crunches!!!!

Height: 5'7

330#--I wore a 3X sweatpants, never wore jeans

315-310 --about a 26 in jeans

310-300 --24

300-285/280 --22

280 -- 20 jeans. They are tight & my gut hangs over (gross!) but I'm working on that.

I've found that for me it depends on the manufacturer, but 10-20 pounds per size is about right.

OK, I'm talking UK sizes - have no idea how these sit with US sizes - but scanning your weight/size stats at least gives me a bit of an idea of what you guys are talking about! So here's my Brit-chart:

233 - size 28
214 - size 22/24

Artist...I think a British size 10 is about an American size 6. (I wrote an essay that explored the topic once.)

ah ha. **light bulb pops on** Thanks Jennelle. When I've been reading on this board that people have got down to a 4 or a 6 I've had this mental picture of emaciation!!! It just sounds so low to me.....
