Anyone Else Have A Goal Size?



Recommended Posts

So I have been big all my life and don't ever remember weighing under 200 lbs. I'm a big girl I'm 5'11". So I know I want to be able to fit a regular size 14 in jeans and slacks. I already bought some goal size 14 dresses and they fit, just not comfortably. I originally set my goal weight at 190 but I don't know what size that is for me. So my goal is size 14. Anyone else?

I would like to get close to a size 10. I started at 241 and a size 22 and Im now at 190 and a size 16. My surgeons goal weight for me is 175 and my personal goal is 150. Im 5'7" so I don't know how Ill look when I hit 150.

I hope to be a size 12. I am also tall 5'10 and at 160lbs in the past I was a size 12. We will see it what happens, I am already down from a size 24 jean to a size 16 and I am sure my body will be different at 160 lbs since has been almost 20 years since I was that weight. I am just trying to enjoy the journey down and excited already for the progress, energy and health I have gained.

Well right now I weigh 221 pounds, wear a size 14 and am 5'10". So I know that sizes have increased over the years and the last time I was under 200 pounds was a long, long time ago. So my goal weight is 180 pounds and I hope to be in a size 10, maybe................ a size 8!!

We will see.

Mine is size 12. Years ago i dieted down to size 12/14 and I looked good. I have a long skinny face and I think that I'd look too gaunt any smaller. The thought of being a 6 or 8 like some people on here just blows my mind! I'm in awe of those people!

My surgeons weight goal for me is 140, my height is 5'5". That's 20 pounds more than I was in high school. Right now I'm 206, and even THINKING being 140 is too crazy!! I'm taking the little successes and enjoying those as they come. That's all my brain can handle right now.

Size 8/10 is what I would like I'm 5"6 228 ATM I'm down from a 22/20 to a big 16/18 :). I was a size 12/14 at 175 17 years ago lmao. So I'm shooting for 150/154.

I don't know what size because the last time I wore a 14 it was in high school. My main goal is to be under 200 pounds...since I can hardly even picture that, I'll decide on a clothing size then. Mainly I just never ever want to shop at plus sized stores after hitting goal. I want to walk into any store and buy off the racks!

I'm 5'5" and started at 223 and size 16/18. I want to be back into a size 6. I just had to go out and buy some 12's so I'm on my way!

I would love to be a solid 10 and a women's Medium. I'm 5'5". Start- Aug. '12-278 size 22-24; 2 weeks post op today- Oct. 28-240 size 20. When I last wore a size 10, I weighed 135-145. My lowest weight as an adult having had 2 children was 178, size 13. My surgeon said I'll weigh 150, but my goal is 138 (1/2 of start weight if 278!) I can't wait to buy clothes in department stores once again!

My original goal was a size 8. Shockingly, I fit into a size 6 last weekend (jeans even!).

I have NEVER been below a 14 prior to surgery. My largest was 18W. I am 5'7 and medium bone frame (who knew that until i lost weight? always thought i was 'big boned'!). My original weight goal was 150 but after looking at bone frames, I'm pushing myself now for 140. Just cuz. I am ok if sustainable for me is "ballooning" back up to 150-160. (that is a LOL comment you know... ballooning up to that, jeesh that's normal/ok weight for me!)

The weirdest thing for me to "get" ... is being able to shop anywhere. I just haven't fully grasped that yet.

And a sidenote to those of you that think this is never going to happen for me, it's taking so long, etc etc.... You all can do this. Stay dedicated and be patient. It WILL happen if you work the program! We just have to work the program (Water, Protein, working out, logging, planning food, etc etc).

Best of luck to y'all..... always! xx

Thank you for this, as my date gets closer I keep thinking that I'm going to be the one person it doesn't work for!

My goal is to weigh 175 only because I don't ever remember weighing that and a size 12 jeans because I don't remember ever wearing those;)

My I'm going to drop dead if it ever happens weight is 150, now I can't even conceive of what I'd look like at this size, but how cool would that be;)

I'd be happy with a 14, thrilled with a 12. At my lowest weight of 270 I fit into a comfortable 18, tight 16 so I have no idea what weight I would be to fit into a 14. Maybe like 230lbs, but my goal weight is around 190. I'll revise it if and when I get there lol.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
