What is your height? 5'8"
What was your highest weight and jean/shirt size? Around 323, and I wore size 26 pants and 2 & 3x tops.
What was your starting weight and jean/shirt size? Same as above. D:
What is your current weight and jean/shirt size? I weighed in this morning at 274.4, and I'm a 22 in pants and a 2x in tops (some 1x), I also fit into size 20 dresses & skirts.
What is your goal weight and jean/shirt size? 145 is my goal, but I could even see myself going into the 130s if it meant fitting into a 6! lol. I'm assuming I'll probably be an 8 and wear M shirts at 145.
Total weight lost? 49 pounds!
After or while losing weight, are you still the same height? Haha yes, have been 5'8" for about seven years now.
After or while losing weight, are you still the same shoe size? When I'm heavier I'm a 10. As I slim down, however, I'm a 9.
Do you have any loose skin or sagging? Not yet...although my arms are starting to look a little saggy.
At what amount of loss did it start showing? I think when I was in the 280s, so like, 40 pounds in?
What was your bra size, and what is it now? Oh jeez. I don't think I've been properly fitted ever. I think I was a 44D at my highest and now I'm a 42 or 40D now. I remember being a 36C at 200 pounds.
Are you happy with your weight loss? Yes! It's been almost a year now since I started and I wish I had lost a little bit more by now, but I'm still VERY happy and proud of myself for these 50 pounds.
If there is anything you could change about how you lost the weight, what would it be? (more exercise, healthier diet?) More exercise definitely, more vegetables, and more water--three things I'm working on right now. :]

What is your height?
5'4"
What was your highest weight and jean/shirt size?
205+ lbs; 16; XL
What was your starting weight and jean/shirt size?
200 lbs; 14/16; L/XL

182.6; 12/14; L
What is your goal weight and jean/shirt size?

Total weight lost?
Had lost nearly 30, but gained a bunch back. Currently, 17 lbs.
After or while losing weight, are you still the same height?
So far as I know.
After or while losing weight, are you still the same shoe size?
Yes.
Do you have any loose skin or sagging?
Well, the breasts are a bit heavy, being so big and all...
At what amount of loss did it start showing?
My husband says he noticed after about 10 lbs. I can't say I saw much of anything until around 30, and even then, not so much.
What was your bra size, and what is it now?
38DD and no indication that's going to change.
Are you happy with your weight loss?
Losing 4 lbs in as many days has been nice, but I'm betting it's water weight, so I guess the overall answer is: not really.
If there is anything you could change about how you lost the weight, what would it be? (more exercise, healthier diet?)
Does being more successful count?

S/C/G: 197/ticker/130

Height: 5'3

Default

What is your height?
5'3.

What was your highest weight and jean/shirt size?

197, 16 pants.

What was your starting weight and jean/shirt size?
See above.

What is your current weight and jean/shirt size?
I'm 134, a size small shirt, a size 8 pants, and a size 6 dress. Sometimes I can wear a size small dress if it's got stretch or loose over the hips, since that's where I carry excess weight.

What is your goal weight and jean/shirt size?

I'm not sure yet. At 134, my waist is 27 inches and pretty flat/fit-looking, which makes me look smaller than I am. However, I carry excess weight in my legs, and I'd like them to firm up. I'm guessing I won't achieve my desired body until about 120, and that'll have to be with lots of exercise. I'd like to be a size 4 pants.

Total weight lost?
Almost 65 pounds.

After or while losing weight, are you still the same height?

Yup.

After or while losing weight, are you still the same shoe size?
I went down about a half size (from an 8 to a 7 1/2), but I can still wear my 8's.

Do you have any loose skin or sagging?

Fortunately, I didn't. I think it's because of my age? I do have mad stretch marks on my thighs, though.

At what amount of loss did it start showing?
I noticed the biggest change around 160. After that, I noticed EVERY 5-10 pounds lost. Most people just started remarking on the difference now. I have strangers at work come up and tell me how much progress I've made.

What was your bra size, and what is it now?
I was wearing a 38DD back then, but the bras were too small. I never cared about bras because I was too ashamed to care about my appearance. Now I'm a 32DD/34D (I usually have to wear the latter because 32DD's are hard to find, although 34D's are too small).

Are you happy with your weight loss?

Very! My life has changed in so many ways. I feel like I need to make up for lost time and want to do everything.

If there is anything you could change about how you lost the weight, what would it be? (more exercise, healthier diet?)
I would have been more active the entire time and I would have not cheated so much. I have never cheated enough to gain more than a pound or two back, but I'd have made quicker progress if I had stuck to 100% healthy all of the time instead of about 75% healthy.

If you have any pictures to show your different sizes, feel free to post them It's amazing how height and body shape makes a difference in sizes. I think this would be a good way to show each other that although you may have lost 50 lbs and gotten to 200 lbs you can be anywhere from a size 14-20. Seriously, you'd be surprised what size jeans some girls where. We are all different on the outside and in and we shouldn't get discouraged if we aren't exactly the same as the next girl.
I love this. It took me a very, very long time to stop comparing myself to other girls. I've finally realized we're all different and even if we're the same weight, height, and even measurements, we still won't look the same.
