    Hi people,
    I thought I would be nosey and find out about people, their heights, their dress sizes and how much weight they lost before their dress sizes were going down.

    I am 5'7" and started at 17 stone, at this time I was a size 20 top and bottom.
    AFter I lost the first stone my 20s got a bit loose but it was when i reached a 2 stone loss I finally got rid of al the 20s and the 18s were feeling a bit loose.
    Another stone on and all my 18s have gone - I am now a 16 in most things apart from the skinny shops where everything is smaller than they say.
    So I just wondered how everyone else has been getting on with dress sizes.

    I was a 16 to 18 when I started at 13s 12lbs, I have lost a stone now and my size 16's are quite bit and my size 14's are quite tight. Have a look on the forum though as there is a discussion about how different clothes sizes are from shop to shop etc

    Hi there

    I am 5ft 1 and weighed 14st exactly when I started. I have lost two stones as of this morning and my 18's are now loose, think I will be into a 16 in about another half stone.

    Im the same height as you Peachy, 5ft 7 and am currently 14st 2. I am wearing some 14's and some 16's depending on where they are from. I started at 18st 1 and was busting out of nearly all my size 20s.

    Cheers everyone - interesting to see that sometimes you lose a lot and it doesn't make much difference - but then a couple of lbs can knock you down that next dress size

    A dress size is every 2 to 3 inch loss apparently.
    I started at 17st 8.5lb, 5' 8" and a size 22 bottom, 18 top.
    17 weeks and over 4st later I weigh 13st 3.5lb, a size 16 bottom and 12 top. Im a 14 bottom in NEXT!!!
    Amazing when you think about it, smaller clothes are more fun!

    Ive found that for me (so far) its been roughly one dress size per stone. Mind you I expect that to change pretty soon :)

    After i had my baby in March 2005 i put on more weight and was nearly 14 stone. At the point i was in size 18s mostly (one pair of size 20 trousers from dorothy perkins - i remember them well!)

    I then dropped a stone and a half and went into size 16s. I started CD at 12 stone 5lbs in size 16s, some large 14s.

    I am now 9st 12 and fit easily into 12s, some of my 12s are too big but i am not quite into a 10. I think I am probably an "11"!

    Hopefully by the time i finish i will be around 9st 5 and a proper size 10.

    interesting thread - thankyou

    I am 5' 2" and at my heaviest (22st) I was a size 32.

    At 12st 7lb I was still a size 18 ... but mainly because my problem area (tummy) meant I couldn't get into anything smaller. Size 18 clothes were, however, loose around my shoulders, bust and hips. If it hadn't been for my tummy I'd probably have been in a 16.

    Wow - this is really interesting!

    I am just 5 foot (similar to Katie Oxo and Porgeous) - yet we are all different sizes at similar weights! So it really is unique to each person!

    I stared at 14stone 1 and was tight in my size 18's. I have only lost 11lbs so far, but already I am back in my size 16's. I keep wearing my 18's but I have problems keeping them up - which can be a bit embarrassing at work!! He he!
