Anyone Else Have A Goal Size?



Recommended Posts

Vanity sizing is crazy. In the mid 1980s I got into a size 9/10 weighing about 140-145. My goal this time is 160 so I was thinking a size 12.

Well, I weigh 189 and am wearing size 14 pants (non stretch jeans and slacks) and skirts. I even fit into a pair of size 12s that must have run even bigger. On the top, I am probably more of a 14/16 as I carry alot of weight around the midsection and back.

I want to lose another 30 or so pounds so I am now thinking that is going to put me back in the 10 range!

Women's clothing sizes mean nothing though, when I read sizing charts they are not even consistentent between different brands.

I hope to get down to a 10, but an 8 would be awesome!

As a guy, I would like to wear size 32 pants and medium/large shirts. I am 5'11".

Yeah sizes are crazy! I'm really hippy so I always have the gap in the waist. I can fit a 14 dress but barely zip up a 18 pencil skirt.

And let's talk about frame sizes. According to my wrist size I have a small frame. I find that hard to accept and laughable. I guess I've just always carried a lotta weight on this small frame. I weighed 90 lbs in 2nd grade!

And speaking of shopping, I am soooo happy I can shop on the regular side. My top has always been smaller so I was already in a regular XL. I can wear L now. I have turned into a little online shopping addict. Help me!

All you tall people..geez! I'm 5'1 and even at my lightest weight (116 in the 9th grade) I still had larger, muscular thighs and wore a size 10. I wear a size 20 at 217...hope to get down to at least a 12...I can't see myself any smaller than that long ago size 10, I'd have to be a skeleton I think.

Hmmm...good question. Th smallest size I wore was as a college student,and that was a 14. I was pretty active, and had a perfectly flat stomach due to thousands and thousands of sit-ups and crunches in physical therapy. That was when I was 18-21. I am currently 52 and at the start of this journey, I was wearing a 24 (22 in some skirts).

It is four months later, and I have lost 53lbs, and currently wearing a size 18. I bought a pair of skinny jeans in Old Navy 3 weeks ago (in the regular sizes!) and they are a little saggy in back!

My goal is 140lbs. I'm not sure what size I will be wearing then, as I have been fat since I was married 29 years ago. I'm still shocked over being in skinny jeans off the rack! If I make it to single digit sizes...just wow.

LOL... I'm 4 ft 8 in and while reading through this was thinking the same thing. I have no goal size. It would be awesome to wear a 6...

My goal is a size 4-8 I don't want double digit clothing anymore lol. I currectly wear a 18 at 240. I will probably have to get down to 130ish to fit in a size 4. I'm probably more excited about being able to ditch Lane Bryant clothing in a couple of weeks :)

I'm only 5' so my goal size would be about a 2. Seems I reachable to me right now (pre-sleeve) but for my height, my weight should be around 105 - 115! Such a long way to go..........!!!!!

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
