S/C/G: 256/200/180

Height: 5'6


If memory serves correct (sizes correct in the 90's early 00's unsure)

129 lb size 11 (1993)
135 lb size 13 (1997)
155 lb size 15 (1999) (plus size junior)
165 lb size 14 (2000) (that's right! smaller size)
190 lb size 16 (2002)
235 lb size 20 (2003)
256 lb size 22/24 (2005-2007)

now I'm 213 lb size 18/20. I'm 5'6 and this height since 1993. I've never been a single digit size. Now that's possible because in the 90's I would have had to weigh between 105-115 tops to be one. Gotta love vanity sizes.

Let me try to remember...

I'm 5'3"
At 130 I wore a size 7-9 (small in most shirts)
At 150 I wore a size 11 (medium in most shirts)
And now, at 168, I wear a size 13. (medium to large in shirts)

My HW was 163 and my LW was 139. My size rarely fluctuates. I'm about an 8/10 at those weights though some brands I can fit a 12 or a 6. I'm 5'9".

I'm 5'1" and at my current weight (223) I'm wearing a size 18 for the most part - sometimes a 20 or a 16 depending on the clothes.

At my lowest weight, 134 in 2001, I could wear an 8 in somethings, but was mostly in 10's.

i'm 5'8 and at 204 pounds I'm still wearing a size 18! = P ...i've never been lower than size 16/18 since I was 15 years old so I have no recollection of what sizes I wore. I'm pushing hard now to get past that (I haven't been consistently under 199 since I was 14 years old) so I am trying to finally get past it. I just can't imagine myself smaller but I'm taking it one step at a time.

This is an interesting post, because just the other day I remember when I weighed 140 and was a size 12 (and thought I was fat!). That was about 17 years ago.

Oh Lord, what I wouldn't give to weigh 140 and be that "fat" again!

Today I'm 199.5 and wear size 1x and up. I notice my sizes vary greatly, since clothes are cut so differently from each other, so I don't even know what size I TRULY am.

I'm 5-4 and a pinch. The last I remember, I was 180 and size 14/16 (i'm larger on the top than the bottom). I now wear an 18/20. I was thin in high school and still wore a 10/12, if I recall right, because I'm pretty curvy without the weight.

Is everyone just one size? I'm currently around 160 lbs at 5' 7", and I've got pants (that fit) everywhere from size 10 to size 14. Tops are more similar: large/extra large. I don't wears skirts/dresses much, but I was a bridesmaid in July: dress size 16. I wasn't happy about that .

All through my adult life, from 126 lbs to 184 lbs, there's been a variety of different sizes in my closet that fit.

I have never, ever, not even one time regretted not eating something. Never. Not once. Turns out telling yourself no feels marvelous. No deprivation passing up on *those foods.* The deprivation is EATING them and remaining overweight. You've got to raise your standards; requiring more from yourself. Challenge yourself. Push yourself. Work past the discomfort. Every time you do it, it gets easier and easier - Rockinrobin

I definitely wear several sizes, but usually one size seems to predominate.

Well, I'm 5'2" and hourglass shaped, so currently I wear a 16 that is really baggy. I'm hoping that losing about 5-10 pounds will put me in a 14.

160 size 12
140 size 10
130 size 8
115 size 6

I was a size 3 in high school (really skinny - those were the days), and I weighed about 95 pounds.

I've noticed it really depends on where you are shopping. Express does "vanity sizing" to make their shoppers feel good about themselves. I wear a size 4 at Express but everywhere else I range from a 6-10 in pants. (I am 5'3'')

Wow what an interesting topic guys.

Currently 180 lbs. and I'm a size 13/14 generally, although I barely fit into Juniors XLs and I fit Misses or Womens L. Seems like the Juniors sizes are smaller. Here's my breakdown (as well as I can remember).

Height: 5' 8.5"

180 lbs. - 13/14
165 lbs. - 11/12
155 lbs. - 9/10
145 lbs. - 7/8

I haven't been 145 since High School, but I remember my senior prom dress was a size 6...and I remember being shocked it fit! I have a large bone structure too so even if I weighed less I probably wouldn't go any lower than a size 6. My hips aren't going to shrink!

Height: 5.7 and 1/2


When I started I was a size 18 I was 215. When I got down to 200, I was a 16 and seemed to stay there forever. 180 I think put me into a 14. I hit a size 12 at 170.

The more you lose, the quicker the sizes go down for certain. I am in a very comfortable size 4 now.
