    Hi all :wave_cry:

    My lipotrim lady said this morning at weigh in that every 10 lbs lost equates to a dress size. Anyone know if this is true or is it just an old wives tale? :confused:

    I would love to think i have dropped a dress size and am only 4 lbs away from a second but I somehow dont feel that I am:sigh:

    ive lost nearly 2 stone and gone down 1 size, but they are tight and not comfy, so prob need another half stone for a comfy fit so thats going to be 2.5 stone lost and 1 dress size for me! i think the smaller you are the quicker you are to go down a size, so for instance a size 8 or 10 will prob drop a size after loosing 10lbs yes, but the bigger you are im guessing the more you have to lose to drop down a size... thats just my theory on it anyway lol, i guess also its alot to do with peoples body shape etc and where the weight comes off x

    Last time on LT, I went down 4-5 dress sizes with just over 7 stones! If only that were true!

    I think it depends on personal size. I've lost 16lbs and haven't dropped a size yet. But then I'm much bigger to start with. Someone who starts smaller may find 16lbs a massive loss and go down a dress size. Like most things on this diet - it's 100% personal! x

    I think it is also how the current size fit you, if you're squeezing into a 16 then it might take more than 10lb to get to a 14, but if a 16 fits you great if a little loose then 10lb might get you to a 14.

    My mate lost 9st on a VLCD and went from a 24 to a 12, so 6 sizes in 9 stone, but when I did it last and lost 2 stone I was 18 to a 16.

    And don't forget stores are horrid about being a 16 in one shop and a 14 in another or an 18 in another - standard sizes isn't really true IMO :confused:


    and well done on your 10lb's :)


    and I'm using 16 as the first figure that came into my head, obviously not sure what yours is

    Hi hun,
    I've lost 19lbs and have gone down 2 dress sizes! But alongside the diet I have been exercising and toning a lot which I think probably had a big part to play.

    I lost 3 stone and went down 2/3 dress sizes but the 14 was from New Look and I find they come up bigger in their jeans so....Yeah I don't know about that. But like everyone else has said its purely personal.

    Good Luck xx
