I am probably very short-waisted compared to many on my board here ... seems like I would need to add some grueling, unforgiving core work and more cardio to fit into the size 10 at my goal

hahaha, at least you bought clothes to know. When I dropped the 30 lbs (the first time) I finally went to get something new because I couldn't belt the current stuff any more and I reached for one size down... uh... had to start all over, was at least two to three sizes down. It was a great feeling. Now those clothes stare at me because they want to be worn again.

It's crazy all across the board
5'7' 190 (poo was 188.5) and wear a size 12
I have some 10s that I think I've stretched into 14s..
When I was 160, was an easy size 8, sometimes 6.

hm.. depends on the store. Like jcrew runs big I think- when I was 114-116ish I was wearing 0s and 00s there which I think is silly. With Euro sizing around a 24 or 25 when I was 114-116ish. At about 119-120 wearing 26 and 27s. 5'4"

I'm about 145 lbs and a size 30 waist in Paige jeans. I think I'm right between size 10 and 8 for most others. I'm 5'6" tall.

5/7/10 12:35 P

Current weight is ~140, size 8 in express jeans, probably a 6 at old navy as my 8's from there are too big

At my highest 255 I was a 26. No idea what brands, but it didn't really matter at that point.

I'm a total apple though and if pants were made with REAL rises that go to near the waist, I'd be a larger size (and have super baggy butt, even in the 8's its a bit loose there)

Right now I am in the same size pants as when I started (12)even though I've lost 15 lbs. The good news is that the pants are fitting better and a couple of pairs are even starting to fit a little loose. I currently weigh 152lbs.

I find this topic to be upsetting to me because I feel like I am so disproportionate. At my heaviest, 178 I was a size 16. Even at 153, I am a size 14. I'm 5'2". This aggravates me because my sister is also around 170 and 5'2" and wears a size 11/12. UGH. It's not fair that I lost 25 pounds and only dropped one size.

6'0" Tall 198 LBS mostly a size 13/14 but I do have a few 11/12's that fit. Looking forward to that 10...

5/6/10 9:25 P

I am 39 years old and I am 5'5" tall. I have been these sizes:

Weight: 206 Size: 20
Weight: 191 Size: 16
Weight: 169 Size: 14
Weight: 147 Size: 10
Weight: 135 Size: 6

I seem to have dropped a size every 10-15 pounds.

(I track everything, I am very anal-lytical, so it may seem weird that I know when I was what size...but that's okay, I like being weird.)

5/6/10 9:15 P

I'm almost 5'2"
@ 116 lbs I'm a loose 4/6

1 pound of fat and 1 pound of muscle weigh the same. Its just that 1pound of muscle takes up less space.

Clothing sizes can vary by manufacturer. My size 6s are a tad loose, but my size 4s fit fine.

I'm still in awe, 18 months after hitting my goal weight, that I can fit into size 4s!!

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.
5/6/10 6:59 P

152 current weight
size 8 pants/can get into a size 6, but not "comfy" yet.

I think if I lose another 12-15 lbs, I'll be in a size 4. Now *that* would be something. emoticon

5'7", 176 pounds, depends on the brand, but for the most part comfortable size 16 or tight size 14. I am a pear shape and carry my excess weight in my lower half.

I'm 5'7" and 194 lbs. I can comfortably fit into size 12 pants. Size 14s are a little too lose. I can fit into some size 10s, but they are a little too snug still. Can you say "muffin top"?! I'm hoping to be in a size 10 by the end of the month...

We just talked about this in my neighborhood this week as we are all changing clothes to fit our new waists.

I am 5' 6" and weigh 202 right now and am back into 16's. I had gone up to size 20 when I was at my highest so yeah sparkpeople!

I always wondered what other people weigh at certain sizes. I know its different for everyone, but thought it would be a fun topic for those who like to know where abouts they are on the pants size aspects.

For me at least, seeing what others weigh at a certain size pants smaller than me keeps me motivated!!

I will start!
