    There is an old thread on here somewhere discussing this, it was a while ago but had heaps of replies so might be worth searching for. The long and the short of it was everybody is very different!!

    I have lost just over 3 stone and have gone from a 16-18 to a 10-12, and very roughly it's been about a stone to a dress size :)

    I've lost roughly 2 stone - going from 24 getting tight, to just getting 22s to fit (don't think i could wear them in public lol)

    I hold all of my weight in my middle (no boobs and comparitively small legs)

    Aint that the truth. In the Ballymena branch of New Look you have to walk to the back to get to the fatties dept... I always end up feeling sad because I see a lot of nice clothes I'd love to wear, then you get to the back, and its all frumpy gown tops.. :(

    I started at 15st 7lb, a size 20 (I'm very much hips and boobs!) when I got to my lowest at 12st 4.5lb, I could get into size 14 trousers (very, VERY tightly!!) - I have very strong thighs due to a childhood as a gymnast and trampolinist - and now at 12st 11lb I'm 14 in normal jersey-top t-shirts (not button shirts!) and 16 is coming up just a little big in trousers. However dresses and such I am a 14!

    Changes so much from person to person, even when I tell people I was a 20 they are shocked, as I looked more like a 16.

    I started at 17 stone 5.5 a size 18 to 20 and now 12 stone 13 a size 12 to 14 it very much depends on your height and build I think but would agree and say roughly a stone to a dress size :)

    I'm 5'2.5" and started at 14 st 2.5 lbs wearing a size 20, reached goal the first time at 8st 11 wearing a size 8 then gone back up to 13 st 2.5 and was squeezing into a size 14 as I was too proud to go and buy a 16, but I was needing a 16 really. Now I weight 8st 2 to 8st 5 depending on the time of the month and wear a size 6/8 depending on the shops and on the models. I think it very much depends on your body build and on how you wear stuff ;)
