An update from me, I am pretty much a size 6 (my Ann Taylor & Jones 6 pants are a bit loose, but Old Navy 6s barely fit. Some styles won't button! I wish there was more uniform sizing!) I do have 2 size 4 suit coats, one fits really well, the other is a tad snug. I am mostly in a M top now and am firmly in a M bottom!

I am almost at my goal weight. I plan to try to lose 10-15 more pounds (that post-baby belly flab is the worst!), and I think that would put me in a size 4. I would be very happy there, I think. I can't see my hips letting me be a size 2! ;)

I started at a 16 and I'm currently in a 4, but I still have 10-15lbs I'd like to lose, so probably a 0-2? That'd be pretty okay in my book. :)

Wasn't in other thread.

I wore maternity pants for nearly 6 months after having our daughter, until my pants were falling off me, and then my husband said enough already. So I got new pants (Old Navy, which was also the brand of maternity pants I had) and I was down to a size 14, my maternity pants were an Old Navy L... no clue what that equates to.

I'm currently in size 8/10 pants (depending on brand) and I had gotten down to size 6/8, but gained 5 back, and apparently that made a difference!

I would like to be back in at least a 6/8, maybe eventually a 4/6 since I know I've got plenty more to lose in my waist with all the lose skin left over from my pregnancy 2 years ago... yep, 2 years!

highest: size 10-12, L
current: size 0-2, XS

I wouldn't mind being size 0 across the board or maybe 00 and XXS.

I'm currently still wearing maternity pants 5 months after Jack being born... Think I would be about a size 20.. Would love to get down to a 12... Haven't been down that size since I was about 18...Really need to start doing something about it!! Especially since I have got to go back to work in about 4 weeks :(

it will be nice to get out of the plus sizes someday! I'm currently 3X bottoms (24-26), 2X tops. I would love to be out of that.. which is about size 18 bottoms, probably. Ultimately - maybe 12's. Can't even really imagine that yet, though.

I started at a tight 22. My 20's are loose and I'm wearing some of my 18's. I would like to be a 12/14

You all can make the size goal that you want! I was a 12/14 and now I'm a 6/8. If I can do it, all of you can! Keep working at it, talk to others for support, and use those trackers. emoticon

I would love to be a size 10 or 12. That feels realistic for me to reach. Right now I'm aiming to get out of the 20's. Currently a size 24.

I basically just started on this journey and I am currently a size 22. I would love to get down to an 8, but I feel like a more realistic goal would be 14.

I just started SP but I have lost 20 pounds since the beginning of the year and already gone from an 18 to a (getting loose!) 16. My first goal is to lost another 20 pounds and hit 199 - maybe I will be a 14 at that point. I think that if I can hit my final goal of under 160 that maybe I would be a size 10, which wouldn't be too bad for me at this age (32) and my height (5'7", big boned). I'd love to be a 10 again!

Hmm, that is one thing I haven't considered since starting this weight loss journey. Even at my healthiest and best I was no smaller than a size 10/12. I wear a size 13/14. My hips are smaller in proportion to my height and weight, so I get the 13/14 for my waist and the but and hip area hangs loose on me. I think I would be fine in a size 10.

Right now I am a 14, depending on the clothing. Last year I had gotten down to a 12, but my ultimate goal is to be a size 8.

Currently a very tight 12..kinda popping out of my 12's, but really don't want to buy new clothes... usually a 10...have a whole stack waiting for me.... would love to be an 8...this would be worth buying new clothes!!!

Highest was size 18, and that was a sad, sad day! Right now I'm a 14, after losing almost 30 pounds over a year ago. I've only been down to a 12 one time, just before getting pregnant with my first child. I'd think it was a miracle to be in a 12 again, and a 10 would be even better!

Good question...maybe an 8.

I'm currently a 12/14 and considering the fact that I have a very small's pretty heavy.

I've been everything from size 4 to my current. 4 was too small for me. So I'm aiming for a 8 (I'm tallish).

When I began my weight loss journey I wore a size 16 pants and extra large shirts. Now I wear a size 7 pants and medium, sometimes small, shirts.

I'm a small framed person so I'm currently wearing a size 4, however I would like to go back to a size 2. I'm about 10 pounds heavier than I should be and hopefully I can lose that. I really haven't tried to lose weight before, but I just finished up some treatments for Breast Cancer and the steriods & lack of gym time has assisted with some weight gain. Granted I could have put down the cookies, but they kind of seemed appropriate at the time. Anyway, back at the gym and trying to get back in shape.
I saw that Dr Oz once said you should try to be your weight when you were 18 and that was about 115 so I would assume that would be my goal. I'm 5'3 and 35 years old so hopefully I have the metabolism to get there again. Good luck to everyone!

When I started losing weight last summer, I was in a TIGHT 14. Now I'm in a 12, but would like to fit into my 10's. I don't have any desire to weigh 125, which is my "ideal" weight. I know I can maintain 135 easily, as I was 135 for many years, pre-kids...

4 years ago I was a size 5 and crept up to a size 20. I am not a baggy size 18 (16 a little snug) but would like to get to a comfy size 7. I have started and restarted this diet and exercise attempts, but I have so much to gain if I can accomplish my goals that I am going to continue trying. Wish me luck!!! And good luck to all of you!!!

My highest was a size 16 four or five years ago. Then, I lost a ton of weight and got down to a 6/8. Stress and lack of attention have allowed me to creep back to a 12, and now I'm working hard to lose again. I plan to settle at the 8 range, as I think it was just too hard for me to maintain the 6.

At my highest weight of 263, I was in a size 22 bottoms and 18/20 tops.

I am now mostly in size 10 bottoms and size medium tops.

I didn't post in the other thread, but I'll post here. The biggest size I've ever worn was a 16, and that was in one or two outfits. That was probably 4 or 5 years ago. I've consistently been a 12 or 14 for the past few years, getting all the way down to an "almost" 6 (6 too small, 8 feeling roomy), but, when I started here (in earnest) in April, I was wearing a 12 or a 14. I am currently consistently in a 10, but I did wear a pair of size 8 shorts the other day (however, I have some old Gap jeans size 10 that still give me a muffin top....) Today I'm wearing a size 14 skirt suit, and it is pretty baggy, but that's fine for me with skirts because my hips catch it, and it doesn't ride up high around my waist! ;) I'd like to eventually be firmly in a 6. From there, I can see maybe wanting to go down to a 4, but I'd like to hit my first goal (of weighing 130) and seeing what size I'm in and how I look and feel before deciding to (try to) lose more or drop another size or not.

Ok, so a while back I asked what size do you wish you were? Some of us have lost weight and sizes since then. I was a size 22 when I posted the thread and am now a size 16. Have you went down any sizes since you started on this journey? If you dont mind sharing what has been your progress, starting size and current size?
