    Another thing which I'm wondering about...
    How much did everybody have to lose before you dropped a dress size? I know we're all different, but there must be an average amount of weight. I've read somewhere that its roughly 15 pounds per dress size. Whereas my friend told me that it's half a stone per dress size. Now that just sounds too easy!
    My point is, in order to motivate myself, I'm trying to roughly work out what dress size I can possibly be in by August. I am an 18/20/22 depending on the shop at the moment! And would love to be a size 14. Has anybody got there who can advise me? I've got from now til the end of August to get there!
    Thanks in advance! :confused:

    It's about a stone per dress size for me (maybe a tad over). At 11st 8lb I'm a 16, at 10st 7lb I'm a 14, and if I remember rightly (just let me cast my mind back a few hundred years......) at 9st 6lb I was just about in a size 12 (in some shops, lol) so yeah, about a stone for me.
