So, I've never been in the habit of weighing myself (until now) so don't really know where my goal weight is other than within the healthy range in terms of BMI. When I got married I got down to a size 16 but I have no idea what I weighed. Currently a size 20 and hoping to get back to a 16, can't even imagine being any smaller as I haven't been a size 14 probably since I was 14 years old! My consultant (a man), suggested it's roughly a stone to a dress size, but that can't be right as people vary so much in their build/height? I know everyone is different but what's your experience in terms of dropping dress sizes? Is it realistic to hope to get to a 16 by July for a family wedding? 2 sizes in 4 months? As I said, I can't imagine being less than a 16, I'm 5'8" with big feet and hands for a lady so don't think I was ever meant to be thin!!
