That's not a question I think can be answered, truthfully. It depends on too many variables. Where do you tend to carry weight? Where does weight tend to come off you first? Are you putting on muscle as you lose fat? All those things will affect how much "scale weight" you need to lose before you're fitting into smaller clothes.
Then there's the problem with American clothing sizes, particularly women's sizes. They aren't standardized. In my wardrobe right now I have everything from sixes to fourteens....and they all fit me about the same. So I frankly have no idea what "Size" I supposedly am...or when I will have "dropped a size."

It really, really depends. For me it took forever because I lost so little from my lower body at first. Now that I'm closer to goal I'm finally starting to see the jeans sizes go down like crazy. I've lost 84 pounds and am just now able to get in to a size 12-14 (depending on how they're cut) when I started at size 20. I think I was able to get back in to 18's after about 30 or 40 pounds? But I stayed there for several months and then stayed at size 16 for several as well.
