Losing Weight and Dress Sizes

#1
Hi All

I have just been thinking as to roughly how much others have lost before going down a dress size. I know everyone is different, but would just like to know how much you had lost before you went down to the next size. I will be happy once I start LT and the pounds fall off but my main aim is to get down in dress sizes.

Like I said I know everyone is different but would just like to know.

I am currently a 20/22/24 (depending on where I shop) but would ideally like to be a comfortable 14 (dont think I could be any smaller) do you think this is achievable?

Anyway I have rambled enough!!

Does depend where you carry your weight - I have read that the general rule of thumb is 1 stone = 1 size,but as you have said everyone is different. Of course a size 14 is achievable - depending on your height, it seems to be around the 11 stone mark. Go for it, is you have been reading the threads you will see plenty of sexy folk who have done really well x

It all depends on the individual, Sarah!

I started as 22/24 now an 18!

But got a size 16 Primark dress last week and it fits all over but looks like I've had a major boob lift......scary!:D

I was 14 stone in 2001 and a size 14, so it does vary and I think gravity and age has a hand in it too!

Thanks for the suck quick replies. I am not going to base what people have said on myslef I was just wandering!! I am 5"2, I just wanna be able to walk into "most" shops and know they are going to sell my size, I hate being shoved upstairs or at the back of the shop where the "fat" peoples section is with a lot less choice in clothes! Sorry can you tell I have a issue with that, I know I need to loose weight and all but its like "big" people are not allowed to be trendy!!

I have been on the site browing more at the moment as I have not started I dont have a lot of knowledge to pass on but I have seen a lot of the before and after pics and they all look amazing, such an achievement and I cant wait to be one of them. So much effort has gone into achiving their goals, I just hope I have the willpower to do the same.

Sarah,

You won't be browsing at the 'fat' sections very soon.....seriously if you put the effort in, the rewards will reap in for you!

I never would have believed eight weeks ago I would be able to fit into standard sizes in such a short time...but it is possible!

I even used a communal changing area last week and I wasn't even bovvvered!:D

CONGRATULATIONS on all your weight and dress size losses!! It is amazing! I would not have belived that so much could be achieved on LT if I had not seen the posts of you ladies to prove it. Just wish I had found it sooner.​
