    How much weight did people lose before they starting going down in dress sizes?

    I was just wondering how long it took people to lose weight before going into the next size down, I have now lost just over 2.5 stone and am only now fitting in to the next size clothes. i'm going from a size 24 into a 22 now.

    I think it varies greatly from person to person, for me it is anything between 1 and a half stone to 2 stone. I had to think oooh I had I been wearing it tight before and not taken it into account?

    Mine was about after a 1.5 stone loss, that I could get into a size smaller jeans comfortably but as the previous poster said, I was wearing my old jeans but they would dig in and be uncomfy.
    I find in the first stone to two stone your original clothes feel so much better, you don't get marks from where its too tight and that makes you feel so much healthier!

    My hubby lost 2.5 stone and still didn't go down a size. He was told by his doctor that your body loses weight from where it needs to first, so the visceral fat around your organs, and then goes to your other bits, like tummy, legs etc.
    It used to really get him down, but even though we all hate (well i do) the outside fat, there is no denying that the visceral internal fat is the most dangerous and it's good that our bodies get rid of that first...they really are amazing machines!

    But i know some people who have gone down a dress size per stone, maybe they were lucky and didn't have that much internal fat, so their bodies just got on with the external maybe?

    Congrats on your weight loss though, that's fab x

    That's very interesting! Never thought of that before.

    In answer to OP's question, I think it depends on what size you are to begin with too. I'm about 1.5 st between size 20-22 but 0.5st between size 10-12.

    Very confusing! I think it shows just how much it varies from person to person. I'm 5ft 7 and was 12 stone when I started SW and size 14. Once I'd got to 11st I was a size 12, but I needed to lose another 1.5 stone to be a size 10 (9 and a half stone)

    I've lost a stone and noticed any difference in my clothing so I'm hoping when I get to 1.5 or 2 I will have gone down a size

    For me at thirteen stone and 5ft 6. I was a size 14. Took me till about 11 and a half stone to drop to a 12. I'm now ten stone and a size 8 to 10.

    i also think exercise makes a massive difference to how toned you are are and subsequently what size you are, I started dropping down the clothes sizes quicker when I started upping the exercise.

    Yeah I agree, last time I lost the weigh after my 2nd baby I lost 2st without exercise and then started 3x a wk to get another 7lb off but really toned up. Now after my 4th baby I'm starting all over again

    It depends on how tall you are and how much weight you have to loose. For example if you are 5ft 10 and weigh 18stone you will need to loose a lot more to bring in your waste than if you are 5ft and weigh 10 stone if that makes sense?? I'm 5ft 7 and at 14 stone I had to lose 2st to drop a dress size but I know at 12 st and downward I only need to lose 1 st to drop a dress size. So the long and short of it really is it's individual to your weight and your height combined.

    Ah this is a very interesting thread. I look forward to losing enough to go down a dress size. The most I ever lost was 9lb and I stayed the same size 22

    Dress sizes aren't consistant in their increments, so the difference between and 8 and a 10 is much less than the difference between a 22 and a 24, this would therefore mean that you need to loose a lot more to drop from a 24 to 22 than you do to drop from a 10 to an 8. So there really isn't an easy answer to it. I know personally I am a size 10 at 9stone 7 (my target weight) and my top weight of 12 stone I was a 14-16 and I am a 'proper' 12 at about 10 stone 7 so my weight is about a stone per size. I am 5'4, currently 10stone 13 and a 12-14.

    I think you can't really judge as it also depends if you 'squeezed' yourself into a a smaller size at the beginning.

    If you are in a too small top, it will take longer to get past that clothing size. As you have to go through the too tight, fitting perfectly and then too big.

    I also find the gap between 18-16 is close but the gap between 16 to 14 is huge! I am finding the gap between 12 and 10 is small.
