    Might be a cheeky thread, but trying to see the correlation between weight loss and clothes sizes!

    I started at 20st 7 and was a size 26/28

    Today I am 18st 5 and my top half is a 20/22, but 22/24 bottoms, although evans knickers in size 18/20 fit me - strange but true.

    So, what size and weight did you start at and what are you now?

    Im thinking of ordering myself a pair of trousers in 20, 18, 16 so i can hang them up as an incentive to see how close I can get into them! Once i can get into the 16s, ill order smaller!

    it took me 7.5 months, from 1st May till 21st December 2008. i finished in December because i wanted to enjoy Christmas, but I still wanted to lose a bit more (i wanted to be 9st 5). i just don't have the heart for it anymore:| so i'm hoping that when summer comes i will have more sports and swimming, and will hopefully lose weight then.

    hi there,m this is sort of related so thought would ask you :)

    how much do you generally have to lose to lose a dress size?...on average?

    was going to put a separate thread but it's quite related to this i suppose :)

    thanks! xx

    I am 5'9 I started at 17. 6 and was an 18/20. 18's were a bi snug and 20's a bit too loose. I am now comfortable in an 18 and TBH is possibly a little loose in some styles.

    I started at 14 stone and was in a size 18. I went down 1 stone and 1 dress size every month. I had the same Dorothy Perkins trousers in 18,16,14 and 12's.
    I gained 1 1/2 stone and have been back in the 16's, but they are almost too big and the 14's just a little bit tight. About another 2 weeks and I'll be in them comfortably.
    I have to say that with conventional diets I have never worn size 12 trousers when I weighed 11 stone. At 11 stone I was a size 14 and at 10 stone I was a size 12. But then I think LL and probably other VLCD make you lose muscle as well as fat, which is why you kind of 'plump up' a bit once you start eating again.
    Its funny seeing this thread, as I was only talking about this with a friend this morning!
