    For me it's been over 2 st before I saw any difference in my clothes then it was an over night thing, everything just seemed massive on me!

    It depends on your body where you start to lose fat first. I started on my belly and now its starting to go everywhere else! :p

    I think it depends where you lose it from, but I rememember when I did WW many years ago the leader saying something about 10 lbs for a dress size.

    in my experience, the larger you are, the more weight difference there is between dress sizes.

    I'd always heard the '10lbs a dress size' before, but it most definitely did not apply to me, as I would now need to be down 5 dress sizes and that is not the case. I started at a size 22 and 50+lbs later I'm wearing some 18s comfortably whilst other 18s are too big, and some 16s comfortably whilst not being able to button other 16s. I think the sizes probably go down more rapidly as we approach goal. I'm certain that I was down nearly 30lbs before suddenly my body shape 'caught up' with the pound loss :)
