Yeah,..had me a bit concerned too LOL

we'll wait for the update ;)

I'll tell you one thing... I had gone to a thrift store and found a beautiful braided belt for $1.00 only to find out it was COACH!!! It was WAY too small for me (at the time) so I was going to sell it... found it after we recently moved...and I had room to spare...talk about your NSV!!! I love wearing it...it is truly a "symbol" for me even tho no one else sees it LOL :)

I'm thinking, for me, a 27 inch pant size would be a triumph. I have 8.2lbs until goal and am in a loose 29 right now.

As far as dress size, a 6 would be ideal I guess as I am in an 8 right now if it's sleeveless. I think a comfortable 8 would be good too, with sleeves.

If I lost every ounce of fat I would never make it into a 6. My bones and body are just bigger (I'm 5'11). I'm in a 12 now, but might try for 10 more pounds and get into some 10s.

I don't wear dresses any more but if I did, a size 10 for me.

I truly have no idea what my ideal dress size should be but I selected an 8 as it seems more reasonable to me as a goal. I am not hung up on numbers for size or weight as I prefer to focus on being healthy and fit. When I get to my ideal weight, what ever it may be, and my ideal size, who knows what it could be, I'll know it by how I feel. I still have a ways to go as far as weight loss is concerned but I feel so much better and am able to do so much more. I have energy and I feel strong... how can a dress size compete with that??? When I look at a person I don't think to myself is she a size 6 or a size 14, no, I notice if they are fit and comfortable in their own skin, if they are... they are at their ideal size.

I always thought at my height my ideal pant and dress size would be a size 4-6 but apparently my body thinks a 0 is ideal!

Agreed, I am 6" and bigger boned. I chose a size 12. I think I would look sickly if I wore anything smaller. I would like to go as small as I can without looking like I have a problem however.

My goal was always single digits. I know wear a 0/2. I look at myself and don't see a size 2 or XS, but everything else is too big. So strange to come from a size 24.

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
