Hi ladies I just joined and I too think this is a great idea/goal. I am currently at 176. My goal weight is 140, which is 36 lbs. in 22 wks. That is a little over 1.5 lbs/wk. I think I am up for the challenge. This would be the weight I was at about 5.5 yrs ago right after I had my first child. Hopefully I will be comfortably into a sz 10. I am currently at a loose 16/muffin top 14.

Can't wait to feel great about myself again!

Thanks to YOU T! You started a team we can all be excited about!!!

I LOVE that you said "once I'm healthy" because that's what it's all about - being healthy... the fact that we are smokin' hot in a little black dress is just a convenient little side effect!

I totally hear you about being "uneven" - my legs are tree trunks! (I was a catcher for softball for nearly 10 years... so they are REALLY muscular) Which yes, makes pants really difficult to fit. I'm a bit skirt/dress girl for that reason :)

Yea, I definitely have a medium to large frame..but it's hard because it's kinda a mix. My arms get really skinny, but my legs are like JUMBO huge large frame (if not bigger)..haha. and my boobs are always like 2-3 dress sizes bigger than the rest of my body. I've been just waiting for them to shrink because they definitely weren't this big the last time I weighed this amount. It is so difficult to shop for clothes when certain body parts don't match the rest of the body. My butt is actually pretty flat...and since my legs are so thick, my butt never fits into jeans right. haha. So I just stopped wearing jeans since they were so unflattering on me! I like dresses though :)

I'm 5'5" with a very broad frame and big bones. I'll be very happy @ 149 - The lowest # I've ever seen on the scale was 148 (7 years ago) - and I was a size 8 - but not toned like I am now (still had a little pudge) so I'm hoping that with all the exercise I'm doing now, 149ish will be tight and toned. Right now (In the low 190s) I'm fitting in clothes that used to fit me when I was in the 170s so I know I'm carrying about 15-20 pounds of more muscle. WOOHOO for getting FIT!

That's awesome that your goal is to get out of the division! You are totally going to do it, you're always so motivated on here! How tall are you?

I woke up and weighed in at 159.6 today! Woohoo! TOM water weight must be gone!!! Feels great!!! :) Too bad I'm going on vacation this Thursday and will probably gain some! hehe..but it's OK..I have my whole life to lose weight!!

Everyone's doing great-keep it up!

In some of the races that I've run in - they have divisions for weight. "Athena" division is for women who weigh 150 or more (in some races it's 160 or more)

They have a division for men above 200 called "clydesdale" (like the horse)

I guess it's supposed to empower women who weigh more (especially if for your height your healthy weight is above 150) - but for me, when my healthy weight tops off at 149 - it just reminds me that I'm fat :(

I started running when I weighed about 245 so I'm SO excited to be this close to NOT being in the Athena division anymore!!!

:) Thanks for asking!

Hi ALL!
I'm @ 191.5 pounds right now, and comfortable in a 14, and can squeeze into 12 with a GIANT muffin top.. so yeah, I'm in a size 14 :) WHICH is fantastic - 2 years ago I was 284.5 and size 22/24.

I WILL be at my goal weight by then, so my cute little black dress for New Year's eve will be a size 8, or maybe even a 6. WOW - I can barely wrap my brain around that!

Good luck everyone! I can't wait to see pictures! The next 6 months are going to go by fast and I'm here to support you all!

:) Laura

I would like my Little Black Dress to be a size 4 or 6 :)...I have a hard time fitting into some fitted dresses though because my boobs don't match the rest of my body :/...I'm sure some of you ladies share my pain.

wheni was 220 i was in a 14 so i think that every 20 lbs i lose is a size for me! thats why i try ro focus on inches lol. Also at 160 i was like a ten or a tight 8 haha! If iwas able to get into a 8 confortably id probably faint and cry all at once. I want to be a 12 by the end of the year im gonna try really hard for that!

I too am a tight 16, loose 18 right now for pants, and CAN'T WAIT to be able to fit into 14s comfortably!!!

I'm 5'2" and a half-ish. For me, this is when I changed pants sizes:

240lbs: 22/24
220lbs: 18/20
200lbs: 16/18

So I think, maybe my progression will look like this?

180lbs: 14/16
160lbs: 10/12
140lbs: 8/10
120lbs: 6/8

I have no idea though.... How much weight does it usually take ya'll to see a difference in clothing sizing?

I dont want to get to excited but my goal size in 6 months would be at least a 14 because I am hovering between 16-18 right now. If I could slide into a 12 comfortably Id be exstatic! I need to get fired up again, Im going to finally make a photo collage and post it up so I can see my goal.

Salutations ya'll!

My goal for 12/31/2010 is to be: 125 lbs (since I have never weighed this since I was, oh, I don't know, 12 years old?) I have NO clue what my clothing size is going to be. Even if I am heavier than 125lbs on my goal date, I will still be elated if my little black dress is a size 6!

The only deterrent from reaching my size 6 and/or 125lb goal(s) is that FH and I are trying to conceive...and of course if we do, than my goals will have to change! (Not bad changes though)

I am so excited to see where the final 6 months of 2010 land us!

i still have the dress i wore to prom hanging in my closet--its a dress that was on the 50% off rack, and one of the few i've ever liked. its one i could really wear anywhere that needed me looking nice if i wanted to, hence the reason i got it.

one little dream i had was needing to wear that dress, only to put it on and go to my mom's house so she could help me take it in. its a nice dress that i could really wear for most any nice thing (not too dressy, though). i was about 175 pounds when i wore it last.

so this team's a good idea. i keep not buying myself more clothes because i'm trying to lose weight and won't til i do (though admittedly i went crazy and bought skirts and stuff that're a couple sizes too small so i'd have something for work when i finally dropped pounds)

i love this idea, its a tangible measure, which i keep forgetting about. sorry to spout on, i'm just very excited!

I'm in! I don't know what size I want to get to because I've never been at my goal weight (125lbs) in my adult life... So we'll see!

Amazing idea once again :) Can't wait to exchange ideas and thoughts.

At my worst times I had to wear a 54 (german size, which would probably be 28 in GB) and then dropped to 52(26 GB).

So I want to drop to a 48(22 GB) which would be the first time in 8 years that I do not have a 5 in front :) Of course, to be quite honest, I would love to achieve a 46 as well, but I know that this will be tough.

Thanks for creating this team, Lee!
