    What dress size are you at current, and what are you aiming for when you reach your target weight??


    Me, I'm a Uk 16 top / 18 bottom and hoping to get down to a 10 :eek: :D

    I read that you need to lose around 12lbs to drop a dress size, is this true?

    not entirely sure, english heart. i lost over a stone and i just about went down from an 18 to a 16. i think the bigger you are the harder it is to go down...as in, the more weight you have the more you have to lose to go down a dress size. :)

    Not sure if your sizes are the same as ours. 7 years ago when I was in the UK your sizes were one size smaller?

    So aiming for a size 10/12 jean and 12/14 top, my top half is always bigger.

    I'm not really good with weight conversion, I'm 5 ft 10 so I think size 12 will be my limit, I never wanted to be any smaller. Not sure what that is in Australia but i'll trust your thoughts since you lived here aswell! I'd love to come to Australia one day - i've never been before :)

    I'm going for a 10 but I wouldn't be unhappy with a size 12, at that size my BMI would be normal and I wouldn't consider myself overweight anymore. Then again, I'm 5ft 3" :eek:. (Reasonable) curves are best!! :D

    Edit: Apparently, the ideal weight for my height is around 112-119lbs. That's 8 1/2 stones :(

    dont worry english heart you'll get there!! :) this sounds a bit ridiculous but i do sometimes wish it was physically possible for me to get to 8 stone, the most my weight can be to be inside my bmi, with me being 5ft 10, is around 12 stone 5lbs, and it's kind of depressing because I see that as a man's ideal weight! This is what the media have done lol. grrrrr

    LT, now cc-ing to lose Christmas blubber!
    When I started this I was a 18-20 on top and a 16 on bottom (damn Boobs! LOL!)- BUT I was still a 18-20 all over when I was 17 1/2 stone a few years back- so I don't know if I trust them!?
    I'd like to get to a 12 on top and a 12-14 on bottom? I'm currently 16 top and 14 bottom. I'm 5ft 2" and trying to get to 10st 7lbs, my 'healthy' weight is under 9 1/2 stone- but I've NEVER been that- EVER, so if I get to goal and my BMI is still overweight- then so be it!
