Haven't weighed in this week yet but I'm at 182 lbs and wear a size 14. I notice my jeans are loose on me, but not so loose they fall off! Can't wait until I can buy a smaller size!

I'm 210 and a size 16. This is why I like Ariya because their size 13/14 curvy fits me better than most 16's. And it's awesome because they are made a little higher in the back so you don't moon people. Curvy women need more room lol.

Btw I'm 5'9"

This blows my mind. So many people here are the exact same height and weight as me but a size or 2 or 3 bigger! I am 5'5 (and a half) and weigh 250 and wear a comfortable size 18. I know I have a bigger bone structure - having to wear men's watches and size 11 rings - so I have NO idea how small I'll be able to be or what weight will be what size. Hoping tog et down to a size 12

I must just be really heavy! I'm at 275lbs now and almost into a 16. My 18's fit right out of the dryer but then are too baggy within an hr or so.

There's a great website that has real women and their sizes. Its has a search option where you can search by weight and height, you can even put in body type as well. It was a real wake up call for me. Actually seeing what different weights on my frame would look like...very cool.

Goal is size 4 :) I am bottom heavy so I guess if I am a size 6 I wouldn't be too upset. Goal weight is 115-125. Not sure since I have never weighed less than 132.

164 pounds and a size 12 if the pants are low cut. Higher waist pants a size 14. However, my Old Navy stretch jeans are a size 10! I have a lot of belly fat, and no butt, so nothing fits well.

This is a great thread. Spark has helped me be more reasonable about my weight expectations. I finished losing 60 pounds in 2006 but until I joined Sparkpeople last summer I was trying to maintain a weight that was too low for me.
I am 5'9" tall and I weigh between 142 and 145.
I wear a variety of sizes. Sizes are so unpredictable any more. I usually wear size 10 dresses, size 8-10 pants and Medium tops and t-shirts.
Hurray to Sparkpeople for giving us all permission to be the best version of ourselves we can be without being compared to anyone else.
AWESOME!!!!!

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

I'm 5'7" and currently weigh 155... I wear a size 8/9 pants--10 are a little loose, but I can still wear those too, usually with a belt...I'm not ready to throw away perfectly good size 10 jeans!! haha I probably will once I reach size 6/7/8 and 10s are way too loose on me.

I am 5'8", 150ish and I wear all the sizes!

Pants sizes 4, 6, 8 and 10.
Shirt sizes M, L and XL.
Workout clothes in M.
Dresses in 10 or 12.

Grrr...why aren't sizes standard? I would love to be able to walk into a store and just take one size to the fitting room! I feel like a jerk taking ALL the sizes but I never know what will fit!

If you want to feel really good about your size, I recommend Ann Taylor for pants. I don't really understand what their goal is but I wear always wear a 4!

I'm 5'7" and weigh 140 I can wear a size 6 (sometimes a bit tight) but feel most comfortable in a loose 8. It's so cool to see how unique everyones bodies are. My sister and I are about the same height and weight, but she wears a pant size larger, but can wear smaller shirts. There is this neat website www.mybodygallery.com It's just photos of real people of all different shapes and sizes. It really shows how no 2 peoples bodies are the same.

I'm 5' and maybe 1/2 an inch ;) and a bit confused.. I wear a 6/8 right now at aprox. 103/ 105 lbs, crazy, right?? my waist is 27", which looks and feels really big for my short height. I use to be a size 2 and probably should be because I am so petite and have an extremely small frame. I find it really crazy how much of a difference 8 - 10 extra lbs are, for someone my size.. anyway that is why I am here. Trying to get back down to a 2 so I can actually wear my clothes again... (started a new topic in nutrition to get more feedback on this topic - for the shorties :))

I am also 5'11" and a large build at 229 pounds. I squeeze into size 18 jeans. For me, I think around 180 or 185 would be something I could maintain. And would love to get back into some size 14 jeans again!!

Trials are like FIRE; it can destroy or strengthen you, depending on your character and outlook in life. REMEMBER! The fire that melts butter, is the same fire that hardens steel.

I'm about 5'5" and right now at 167 I'm right around a size 10 (on average). In the past I've been in 8s around 160-155 and I can't wait to get there!

I am 5'7". At my highest weight I was 222 and wore a size 16W and 1x tops. When I weigh 180, I am a comfortable size 14. From 165 to about 150, I wear a size 12.

What I've noticed is for sizes 12 through 16W, I have to lose at least 15 pounds to drop a size. I've never been below a size 12 as an adult, but I imagine that to drop from a size 12 to a 10, I'd have to go from 150 to 145 or so.

My goal is to weigh 155 and wear a size 12. Anything smaller for me will probably be too hard to maintain.

Interestingly enough, my daughter who is 20, is also 5'7" but weighs 175. She fits comfortably into a size 12. When I am at that weight, I'm still in a 14.

I am busty with an apple-shaped body that does not curve at the waist, so I know that my bust and waist keep me in larger sizes. No matter what I weigh, there are two things I can always count on; 1) I am almost always one size larger on the top; 2) it is difficult to find pants that fit me in the waist but don't bag in the hips.

"Persistence not perfection is what counts."
