New version of weight/height/size thread

Anyone interested in changing things up a little in the weight/height/size topic? I'd be curious not only what people's w/h/s is now but also what they're aiming for!

I'll get it started.
143 lbs (down from my high, six years ago, of 172)
size 8

135-138 lbs
size 6

Wow, congratulations on the progress everyone has made. It's interesting to see how everyone's body type is different.

Started at 160 3 years ago. My height is still the same, lol.

Current: 120-125
Height: 5'5"
Size 4 usually

Goal - maintain. This is hard for me... I know it seems weird, but loosing weight was actually easier for me than this.

I'm totally in the same boat -- losing weight was easier for me than maintenance. (I'm the person who started this whole shebang.) I think it's b/c while I was losing weight, i was totally psyched and motivated. But now it's just daily life!

My sister had a lot more weight than I did to lose. She lost the first 45 pounds pretty easily and has now stalled out. So she's not had the same experience -- losing has been tough.

I guess you have to get to know your own body! I'm trying to trick my body into dropping another 5 lbs or so below the weight I've maintained the for the past 5 years. We'll see if I can teach it again!

Began at:
172 lbs
size 14

A year later, I am:
145(ish) lbs (haven't weighed on an accurate scale recently)
size 8 (usually, sometimes a 10)

My goal is:
Under 140 and toned
size 6

I'm hoping the crossover to a size 6 will coincide nicely with the changing seasons! Losing weight means soo much money spent on clothes, so at least needing warmer clothes will be a good excuse! :)

highest 2 years ago:
5'7.5" tall
350 lbs
size 34W

5'6.5" tall (degenerative arthritis of the spine made me lose an inch!)
288 lbs
size 26W (very loose so maybe just 5 more lbs and I'll be able to wear 24W comfortably -- right now they are too snug and I'm afraid if I sit down the 24W pants will split)

5'6.5" tall (don't lose any more height!)
155-170 lbs
I have no idea what size to aim for (when I weighed 155 in 1982 I wore sizes 14 & 16, depending on manufacturer -- I think they changed things because I'm reading about people of my height in my goal weight range wearing anything from 6 to 12)

More importantly, my goal is to be height/weight proportionate, with normal bmi. It's been 26 years since that was a reality for me (before pregnancy).

Weight: 235
Height: 5'10.5"...or 5'11"... Hahaha.
Size: 14-16, XL (Pants depending on style...and snug fit wit XL shirts.)

Weight: 188.5
Height: still the same....
Size: 10 or 11 bottoms, M or L shirts

Weight: 165-170
Height: I'm betting still the same...I have been the same height since i was 12...not going to change now...
Size: 8 in bottoms and M in tops. (I am hoping for that 8...*fingers crossed*)

If i ever fit into a size 8, my plan is to purchase and expensive pair of Victoria Beckham or Rock and Republic jeans. It will be a treat to myself and kind of an encouragement to keep up my healthy lifestyle. Who would spend 300-400 on jeans and then gain weight and not fit into them?!?!? If i spend that much I better keep it off!!!

106 (high is about 121)
Because of vanity sizing, I can fit into some 0s and 00p at Ann Taylor's. In other brands, though, I'd be a 2/3. If we went with the way sizing used to be, I'd probably be a 6.

Short term is 100.:
Long term is 93-97.

Please don't be alarmed... in addition to being short, I have a very small bone structure, very short torso, very narrow hips, etc. plus my fat centers around the middle (same as my other family members). I'm the sort of person who looks about 10-20 lbs heavier than she is. My long term goal is still in the healthy weight range. I've got absolutely no desire to be a stick.
size 6

PP here. Sorry about the typos at the end. I don't know what happened. I don't really have a goal size, since sizes vary at every brand.

my weight

I've been confused by how much I weigh....

and currently wear a size 8

I don't wear my clothes tight and I'm not very well muscled. I dont' know why I weigh as much as I do.

I do have a large chest (32 H)....perhaps that's where the extra several lbs are?
