I am 13 and a half stone and want to know how far off my next target, of being a size 16, I am.

If you can bear to share, t (heaps!) ia!!!

AngiBolen Wed 06-Nov-13 22:39:31

Size 14 (sometimes 12) 10st 6lb (sometimes 4lb)

ZangelbertBingeldac Wed 06-Nov-13 22:40:26

9 st 10, size 10/12

mameulah Wed 06-Nov-13 22:41:04

Wow!!! I am sooooooo impressed. You are my DREAM figure. Do you reckon if I got to twelve and a half stone I would be a size sixteen? I am so, so wanting to be a 16. In my head that is an 'acceptable' size.

washngo Wed 06-Nov-13 22:43:20

Size 12 on top and (usually) 14 on bottom. 10st 6lb (although am a terrible fluctuater and go up to 10st 8lb and down to 10st 3lb sometimes but never more than a size 14 and only very rarely less than a 12).

ZangelbertBingeldac Wed 06-Nov-13 22:43:38

I was a 16 at 12 and a half stone, sometimes a 14.

Mim78 Wed 06-Nov-13 22:44:34

I am 5'6 (not a half I'm afraid). My usual weight when not pregnant is 9 -9 1/2 stone - I know it better in kilos though. I'm a 10- 12.

I like to call it 5'7 but am really 5.6 1/2! I weight between 49-51 kg dress size 6/8 -10 (depending on the shop) but was an overly skinny child (and not in an attractive way at all).

I am a size 12/14 and 12st OP. I do a lot of walking though, and must have bones of lead.... at 10.5st I am a size 10! confused

SinkyMalinks Wed 06-Nov-13 22:45:36

Weight's a bit weird though, I'm 5'7" and a size 10/12 (pre pregnancy) and always sat at 11 stone. I do run, but wouldn't say I am particularly muscular. I think I have heavy bones!

ReluctantCamper Wed 06-Nov-13 22:45:52

When I'm 12.5 stone I'm a size 14/16, so I reckon your next goal sounds very realistic. I'm currently 11 stone and size 14 but can squeeze into some size 12s with big knickers and breathing in.

Good luck!

I'm 5'7 and at 12 stone I was a size 12. No longer that weight. Sob.

Weeantwee Wed 06-Nov-13 22:46:55

Usually fluctuate between 9 and 9 and a half stone. Size 10-12.

ICameOnTheJitney Wed 06-Nov-13 22:47:23

I am exactly the same height as you, a size 14 and weigh just under 12 stone. I have a flatish chest which means when I'm on a thin day I can get into a `12 top but never a 12 bottom!

Highlander Wed 06-Nov-13 22:47:43


Mim78 Wed 06-Nov-13 22:48:44

I've just converted my usual weight of about 57 kilos to stones and it's near enough exactly 9 stone.

CocacolaMum Wed 06-Nov-13 22:49:02

I am 5ft6 and was a 14 at 10st5 and a 16 at 12.5 stone. I am no longer either of those weights. Someone pass the biscuits.. sad

AmberDextrous Wed 06-Nov-13 22:50:27

About 10 stone - size 10/12

mameulah Wed 06-Nov-13 22:50:47

Thanks everyone, in particular Reluctant, Bunty and Jitney.

You give me hope. I can get there. I can. I have to.

Now I have to pluck up the courage to find out how you find scales that you trust. In the gym the scales say I am TWO stone heavier than I am. Which doesn't correlate with the clothes I am wearing. But still......

kerala Wed 06-Nov-13 22:52:14

9 st 8lbs size 10/12. Was 11 stone in January but slashed portion sizes, reduced snacks exercise DVDs 4 times per week done the trick

Am that height, 9 st 5 at the moment and a size 10ish. I've sort of been doing the 5:2 since having DC3 and lost about 3 stone this year

timeforgin Wed 06-Nov-13 22:54:22

9st9 at the mo, tho had a baby 7 weeks ago. Usually 8st10-9st. Keen to get rid of the excess!!

pianodoodle Wed 06-Nov-13 22:55:53

8 to 8 1/2 stone size 8 on top but 10-12 on bottom (wide hips but not much chest) smile

Pregnant again at the minute last time I put on 3 1/2 stone and this time I feel it's going to be more! The chart thing says someone with my starting size shouldn't be expected to put on so much weight, but the chart obviously knows nothing grin

I thought I'd get to keep the nice big boobs as a sort of reward last time but no, apparently it doesn't work that way sad

Caff2 Wed 06-Nov-13 22:55:59

I'm eleven stone and whatever the shop fit into a ten or twelve. Weird.

Bettercallsaul1 Wed 06-Nov-13 23:00:02

I am about that height and weigh far too much. Diet starts after Christmas. (Christmas 2020)

Gryffindor Wed 06-Nov-13 23:01:11

I'm 5"7. 12 stone. 14/16 on hips/bum, 12 on top.

viperslast Wed 06-Nov-13 23:01:32

Doesn't this thread show how difficult weight is! I am a 10/12 at 10.5st a straight 10 at 10st so a full st heavier than some others on this thread at the same height and weight.

dontcallmehon Wed 06-Nov-13 23:02:17

9 stone, size 8~10

Noregrets78 Wed 06-Nov-13 23:02:30

oo snap I'm 5'6" and 13.5 stone too. I'm a 16 at this weight although god knows how much is in my boobs ;-)

Ah well, what the hell. I am 5ft, 6 and a half inches tall and weight about 15 stone wink. I lost a stone in September and promptly put it back on in October. I give up - I was obviously born to be fat. (Forget the biscuits, those profiteroles were lush!)

IamtheZombie Wed 06-Nov-13 23:03:38

Body shape / bone structure must have a lot to do with it because Zombie is only 8 stone and finds many 10s too small while 12s are loose.

GinAndIt Wed 06-Nov-13 23:03:44

I'm that height and a smidge under 11 stone, size 12-14. Would like to be 10 stone, ideally.

AthelstaneTheUnreadyFucker Wed 06-Nov-13 23:05:49

It's dodgy ground, going by weight. My SIL and I are both 5'6", we look about the same size, but I'm a size 8 at 8.5 stone, and she's a size 8 and 10.5 stone! She is firm all over I suppose, whilst I'm skinnier around the joints, but you'd have to look hard to tell the difference. We fit into the same clothes.

stopgap Wed 06-Nov-13 23:07:05

I'm 5'7 and was 8 stone 9 before this pregnancy. I'm now 28 weeks and a stone heavier. Was back to normal weight within six weeks of having DS1.

I'm a slight build, always have been, and judging by family members, probably always will be.

wigglybeezer Wed 06-Nov-13 23:07:21

I am the same height exactly and weigh 9 stone 10 ish.

CocacolaMum Wed 06-Nov-13 23:07:42

well since we are playing top trumps Justforlaughs.. My name is Coca and I am just shy of 18 stone.. I am not jolly.

DoTheStrand Wed 06-Nov-13 23:09:38

I am exactly 5 foot 6 and a half inches though naturally I claim to be 5 foot 7 smile

I weigh 9 stone 3 usually and I'm a size 8-10. At my heaviest I was 11 and a half stone and I think I was a 14 starting to need a size 16 at that point. This was about 14 years ago though so sizes may have changed.

Good luck OP, I'm sure you can do it!

I'm just under 5' 7" - size 10 bottom and 12 top. I usually weigh just under 11 stone (about 10.12 most days)

ShellingPeas Wed 06-Nov-13 23:10:12

9 stone. Size 10/12 on top, size 8/10 on bottom depending on shop. But I was a swimmer and have big shoulders and am big busted.

mameulah Wed 06-Nov-13 23:11:00

Noregrets I am inspired. If I am not being too nosey......what shop do you get a size 16? I am particularly interested as I am most definitely not flat chested.

cece Wed 06-Nov-13 23:11:04

5 foot 7 and 13 stone here. I wear size 14/16 clothes depending on store and whether it is on the top or lower half of my body.

PansOnFire Wed 06-Nov-13 23:12:54

I'm exactly the same height as you; 12st7 and size 16. I used to be 10st3lbs and was a 10/12. My boobs are massive ATM, they haven't gone down after pregnancy and my DS is 1. At 13st7lbs I was a size 16-18. Interesting thread!

LaVitaBellissima Wed 06-Nov-13 23:15:49

5ft 6 10st 8lbs I am a 10 on top and a 10/12 on the bottom.

Crazy all the different weights on here, my slimmest I've been is about 9 stone where I am a 6 on top and an 8 on the bottom confused

tinmug Wed 06-Nov-13 23:17:09

Most branches of Boots have electronic scales which are usually pretty accurate. It costs 50p to get your height and weight, or 70p to get your height, weight & body fat composition (I'm not sure how accurate the bod fat measurement is - probably not very).

Tilly333 Wed 06-Nov-13 23:17:21

I am a 'solid' 5ft 7 weigh 14.5 stone and can sometimes get into a 16! but mostly 18 ... I would love to get into a permanent 14/16 and am trying! Very interesting thread!

Kayakinggirl86 Wed 06-Nov-13 23:19:58

Ok this never makes sence to me. My height is 5.6 and a half. I currently weigh 13st and 7.5 pounds (just lost 20 pounds) my size 16 clothing is all far to big, size 14 trousers fit me nicely with the odd 12. Tops are all a 10 or 12!

How can you be the same weight/ height as me but so different size wise!

catgirl1976fucker Wed 06-Nov-13 23:21:40

11 stone 10

Size 14

cece Wed 06-Nov-13 23:24:44


BlackeyedSusan Wed 06-Nov-13 23:24:44

five foot 6 inches. size 16, some 14's. 69kg/10st 12-13lb

I have big wide hips. when I was 8 stone I still wore 12-14 jeans. (imagine a snake that has swallowed an egg)

LongTailedTit Wed 06-Nov-13 23:24:54

5'6-and-a-half" smile

I however do not own trustworthy scales.

I believed I weighed 10st (naked) for ages, then weighed myself at my mothers (clothed) and hers said 11st! I do not believe my jeans and tshirt weigh a stone... sad

I'm probably 10st 7-10lb. Size 12-14, bottom half a 14.
Small boned, so my sis who's a tall skinny big-boned size 10 weighs about the same as me, if not more.

However am now 14wks pregnant, so am already in size 16 (H&M) maternity jeans due to the beating my stomach muscles took with DS. Ah well.

cece Wed 06-Nov-13 23:25:20


FourArms Wed 06-Nov-13 23:25:26

I am 5ft 4.5 (maybe a bit more?) and weigh 13s 12.5lb (doing SW so know the figures well!). I'm just squishing into unforgiving sz 16s now. Fine in stretchier fabrics.

My lightest was 10.5 stone and I was a 10/12.

Highly recommend Sports Direct scales. £5 and extremely accurate!

stillenacht Wed 06-Nov-13 23:27:06

I am 5'6" and around 16 stone. Size 18.

Littlebigcat Wed 06-Nov-13 23:30:07

I am 5 ft 6 and about the same weight as you. I an usually a 16 in dresses and an 18 in jeans or skirts. I have a massive chest (H cup) but my shoulders are quite narrow. Occasionally a 14 dress or top which isn't overly tight can work for me and oddly make me look slightly slimmer as long as it skims over my hips and tummy in the right way. The last time I was a reliable 14 everywhere was when I was about 11 stone 12 I think. I've been going kickboxing for 3 months now, noticing shape changes but nothing changing on the scales.

LongTailedTit Wed 06-Nov-13 23:30:59

For extra intrigue we could add our bra sizes, that'd really confuse it! Even as a size 14, I'm currently in a 30FF. Could wear 32E too.
I'm wide of nork, so don't look any bigger than a C cup, but the MN bra interventionists were spot on!

MissSingerbrains Wed 06-Nov-13 23:32:29

I'm 5'7'' or just under smile

11st 2lb and currently a 10/12. Though just got some trousers in an 8 but am willing to accept this is due to vanity sizing...

It's amazing how much size variation there is for the same height and weight - this thread had blown my mind!

KingJoffrey Wed 06-Nov-13 23:32:31

I'm 8 stone 12 (size 8/10)

At my heaviest (11 stone 7) I was a size 12/14

SugarHut Wed 06-Nov-13 23:32:37

OP you can't go on weight. I'm about the same height as most of my friends (inch or so shorter than you) I weigh the most, and take the smallest clothes size. I'm more muscley (or made of dark matter) than they weighs more than fat. You could exercise a lot for the next month, lose barely any weight as you replace fat cells with heavier muscle cells, and yet go down a dress size.

cheerfulweatherforthewedding Wed 06-Nov-13 23:32:55

Between 8 stone 6 and 8 stone 9. Never weighed 9 or more.

cheerfulweatherforthewedding Wed 06-Nov-13 23:33:14

Size 8/10

Dominodonkey Wed 06-Nov-13 23:33:37

I am just under 5ft 7, weigh 13 st ish and wear a size 16. But I was also a size 16 at 12 stone 4. I have to be 11 st 10 ish to be in a 14 and 10st 7 or less before I am a 12. Good luck with your quest- I am sure you will do it.

KingJoffrey Wed 06-Nov-13 23:34:12

I am 5 foot 6 also

cheerfulweatherforthewedding Wed 06-Nov-13 23:34:12

I'm actually more 5'7 in height.

Writerwannabe83 Wed 06-Nov-13 23:38:47

Prior to pregnancy I was 8st 9lbs.

Currently 20 weeks pregnant and I haven't dared weigh myself grin

Nessalina Wed 06-Nov-13 23:39:38

This is very topical for me, weighed myself for first time in ages today! I'm 5ft 5in and weigh 12st 5lb. I'm a size 14/16 on top, 16 bottoms.
I'd like to get back into my size 12/14s again, so aiming to get back to 11st. Reckon it'll be an uphill struggle though!

5 ft 7 and 9 stone 9 usually. In a 10 or 12 depending on the shop!
I'd like to be 9 stone again.. !

DorisHerod Wed 06-Nov-13 23:46:59

5 foot 7 inches. 11st 3lbs and wear 12/14 depending on style.

Used to be 13st plus and a size 16.

Have also been 8st and a size 10 but not for about 20 years!

Go running regularly but not muscly. Flabby baby stomach and big hips and norks. Small waist and thinnish legs so dress to emphasise the better bits!

Sadly bingo wings are becoming a feature despite trying to do some weights every day.

ViviPru Wed 06-Nov-13 23:59:13

Hello. I'm 5'6". When I got engaged in March 2012 I was 12st 7 and sz14 was getting tight. On my wedding day 14 months later, I was 9st 7 and a sz 8-10. Today I am 10st 3 ish and sz 10-12. I'm aiming to get back under 10 st and stay there.

60sname Thu 07-Nov-13 00:03:34

Exactly that height, am about 8st 12. Size 10-12 (wide hips, flat chest)

cherry219 Thu 07-Nov-13 00:11:29

At 5'7", I've just come all the way down from 15st7lb (I did have a baby though, which helped!), and am 11st4lb now and have just swapped from size 16 to 14 at long last. I think I went down to a 16 when I got below 13st, although they were pretty tight (this is on bottoms only, I'm bfeeding so tops fluctuate wildly!). My aim is 10st, I was a 10/12 at that weight before my first baby was born, there's a lot more saggy bits to shove into the waistbands now though!

YukonHo Thu 07-Nov-13 00:16:18

I reckon it's all about bone density and muscle tone. Am 10st 10 at the mo barely ever exercise and am a size 12 . I was 10st 4 and much fitter in summer and a 10/12. Really would like to get back down to about 9st 9 and a comfortable size 10. Have just cut out carbs for a body cleanse and to try and stop eating so much crap and am training for a half marathon next year so who knows!

Absolutelylost Thu 07-Nov-13 00:26:12

I'm 5"6' and recently lost around 4 stone. Am now 12.12 and 16 top and 14-16 bottoms. Actually I'm not sure I want to go much less, I'm quite a sturdy woman with large hands and size 9 feet. My double chin has disappeared but I only lost one cup size! Now I need a tummy tuck - 4 children over 15 years and 3 of them by section!

I'm 13st 12lb and a size 14-16. I've always been heavy for my size though!

ToysRLuv Thu 07-Nov-13 01:38:27

Approx 11.9 stone. I am a size 16.

ToysRLuv Thu 07-Nov-13 01:40:00

And am just under 5" 7'

SuiGeneris Thu 07-Nov-13 01:45:19

54 kgs, so probably around 8 and a half stone? Usually size 8, sometimes 10. A bit top-heavy due to breastfeeding at the moment.

Used to be 52 kg pre-pregnancy one and 49 kgs before getting married.

BearsBeetsBattlestarGalactica Thu 07-Nov-13 02:10:11

I'm 5'7" and currently weigh about 9 1/2 stone. Wear 10-12.

I was a 14 going into 16 when I was about 15.4 stone. That was my heaviest nearly 2 years ago.

Athrawes Thu 07-Nov-13 02:20:27

Your height and 11 stone, size 12/14. I'd like to be 10 stone and have been but it's bloody hard work and quite dull getting there, so I hope to stabilise at 10.5 (so a stable, reliable size 12) (5-2 diet slowly working, I have tried many and this is the least OCD calorie counting obsessive)

SabrinaMulFUCKERJjones Thu 07-Nov-13 02:49:16

I'm 5'6" and just over 10 stone. Size 10-12 depending on the shop. Quite big boobs - so usually a 12 on top. But still look rubbish in skinny jeans

I was 8 1/2 stone at university and tiny <sigh> Weirdly I was a size 10 then (20 odd yrs ago) so it shows how the sizes have changed over the years.

I was 11 and a half stone and a 14/16. Size 34-36 waist jeans.
Now 9 stone 4lb and an 8-10, size 28 waist jeans.
Am 5'6 and a half.

BritInTDot Thu 07-Nov-13 03:11:40

What sugarhut said. I am 9 st 6 but fit into an 8-10 as I work out a lot. I used to weigh less, but fit into the same size as I wasn't as toned and had less muscle but more fat. I say to anyone wanting to lose a dress size or two to add strength training. Muscles burn more calories, even during rest, and, although you won't see as much as a shift on the scales, you will fit into smaller clothes. And you'll look fab! far better than being slim but a bit saggy!

goldopals Thu 07-Nov-13 03:51:57

I am 5 7 and weight about 8 stone 7. I wear size 8-10 pants, 6 dresses and XS tops.

RichManPoorManBeggarmanThief Thu 07-Nov-13 04:06:02

I must be really dense. I am that height, weigh 10st and am a size 10, occasionally an 8 (GAP), 26/27'' jeans.

weirdly though, I go through the sizes quickly, so I've been a 14 at 11 stone 5lbs.

Chottie Thu 07-Nov-13 04:07:41

55 kilos which is approx 8st 9lb

I don't really look at sizes as they vary so much i.e. size 8 in M&S and a large in Zara confused I just concentrate on buying something which fits me

Doyouthinktheysaurus Thu 07-Nov-13 06:55:42

5'6" and I weigh 11 stone.

I'm a size 14, clothes are a bit less snug than they were, having Already lost a few pounds.

Ideal weight is nearer 10 stone, can't seem to get under 10!

I stopped running for a few months and the weight piled on! I'm starting to lose it again now I've got my mileage up.

Good luck with the diet op, it's not easy! I tend to find I need to lose at least 10lb to go down a dress size comfortably.

applecharlotte Thu 07-Nov-13 07:04:59

I'm also exactly your height. Currently 10st and size 12.
I only got down to a size 10 when I weighed 9st 2ish (this was for about a week when I had the most awful tummy bug!). It's amazing how the same height and weight can be such different dress sizes!

Shonajoy Thu 07-Nov-13 07:18:48

I'm 5 7 and my normal weight is 134lbs, so nine stone 4. Unfortunately due to spinal surgery and lovely metabolism drugs I'm nowhere near that now! Good luck. Oh and I'm a size ten at ideal weight.

BackInTheGameAtLast Thu 07-Nov-13 07:26:53

I'm 5 foot 6 and a half. Yesterday I weighed 12 stone 5 lbs according to the scales in my local Boots and I am at the larger end of a size 14-16. To be honest though a lot of that is because I am very flabby and need to concentrate more on exercise now my diet is starting to show results (I was 14 stone 3 months ago.)

I tend to carry a lot of fat on my stomach and at this weight I have a 37.5 inch waist and 40 inch hips. My bra size is currently 32F although that is starting to look a little "empty" in the cups now.

Nottalotta Thu 07-Nov-13 07:30:58

I'm exactly that height abd currently 12st 5 and a size 14. I am very active and rather muscly. Small boobs and bones of lead by the sound of it! Highly recommend exercise along with diet.

I am managing the exercise not so much!

littlewhitebag Thu 07-Nov-13 07:32:11

I am 5'6" and 12 stone. My clothes size is 14/16. I hate being between sizes and am trying to get back to 11st so i will be a size 14 again.

Nottalotta Thu 07-Nov-13 07:33:21

What a wide variery of weihts and sizes. Don't forget frame comes into it too. I am medium framed and muscly and look bizarre at less than 10 .5 stone. Not likely to see that weight again.

I am 5'6" (no half!) and weigh 9st. I am a size 8-10.

18 months ago I was 15st and a size 20. I seemed to lose roughly a dress size every stone.

Thatdidnotgowell Thu 07-Nov-13 09:57:19

I think I must weigh a lot heavier than I look...I'm that height and around 9st12 to 10st3 (fluctuate quite a bit), usually hovering around the 10st mark, and I'm an 8-10, very occasionally a 12 in jeans.

Retroformica Thu 07-Nov-13 10:00:56

Mostly size 10.

9 stone 6

issey6cats Thu 07-Nov-13 10:07:58

5ft 6 and 8 stone size 8 but have been a skinny all my life

Workberk Thu 07-Nov-13 10:08:37

My advice is get rid of your scales and only weigh yourself on those machines you get in your local Boots, maybe once a fortnight max. Wear the same outfit every time.

I'm just shy of 5'6 but was a 14-16 at 11 stone 2. I'm now an 8-10 at 8 stone 9ish. By that reckoning, 3 dress sizes = 2.5 stone. But everyone is different.

OHforDUCKScake Thu 07-Nov-13 10:11:10

10-10.4 (keep gaining and losing the same 4lb) and Im size 12.

When Im not bf Im 9.5 stone and size 10-12.

KeepingUpWithTheJonses Thu 07-Nov-13 10:13:36

I'm 12.5 stone and a size 14.

My ideal weight is 10 stone, which makes me a size 8/10. Weight and size confuse me, my friend is the same weight and height as me but nearly two dress sizes bigger. At 8/9 stone i'd look ill. The lowest I've been as an adult is 9.5 stone and that was too slim on me.

Ilanthe Thu 07-Nov-13 10:14:29

I am 5'6" and a half and weigh 9st 3oz. I'm a size 10.

I was over 10st and a size 12 after I had my DS, I've just lost the last of my baby weight.

Bingdweller Thu 07-Nov-13 10:16:31

5"6'. I've been going to SW for a year and here are my stats over the year...

15st 1lb - size 20
14st 7lb - size 18
13st 7lb - size 16/18
13st 0lb - size 16
12st 7lb - size 14/16
12st 0lb - size 14

I'm currently 12st and a size 14 in most shops. Aiming for 10st 4lb as my final target and hopefully the elusive size 10-12 :-)

Good luck OP

16st 7lb...

Size 18/20, 36HH

How can I weight twice as much as some other people who are the same height as me? That is just... redoubles dieting efforts

I'm currently 12 stone 5 and 5foot 6. I'm still blaming 7mo DS for my weight, but in actual fact it's the maternity leave biscuit binge I've been having.
I'm usually a size 12/14 but I haven't been able to get my size 14 jeans back on. Saying tgat though, I hold the weight on my bum and legs, so the jeans may fit my waist if I could get them up past my chunky legs!

Before I got pregnant I managed to get my weight down to 10 stone 7 (150llbs) which is the lightest I've been for years. My size 14 jeans were still tight round my arse and legs though! hmm

ToysRLuv Thu 07-Nov-13 10:26:43

Weird how different sizes people can be! A 14 would be tigh on me.. That said dome brands have enormous sizes (fat face) and some have tiny (h&m, topshop).

Branleuse Thu 07-Nov-13 10:27:43

68kg, and about a uk 12-14

redexpat Thu 07-Nov-13 10:36:33

Before I got pregnant I was 59k. I'm thinner now, but don't have scales, so no idea. Am somewhere between a 10 and 12.

jammypuddingmonkey Thu 07-Nov-13 10:41:03

I'm 11st 5 and a size 12 on the bottom, 14/16 on top.

I've lost 2st since June and am measuring myself to work out what size I am for new clothes.

A few years ago I was 10st 11 and a size 14- and exercised far more than I do now. I'm still bfing though, I blame that for my weight fluctuating over the day by a lot.

15 years ago, when I was 18, I was 7st 10 at one point and still a size 12. I remember buying a size 16 at 9 1/2 stone back then too. This somehow taints how I feel about fitting into a size 12 now!

HelloDoris Thu 07-Nov-13 10:46:58

5ft 6 and a bit

Weigh 12stone 4, wear mainly 14 occasional (big) 12 and still have 16s that fit perfectly.

I want to be 11st 6 so I'm bordering 12/14, although I desperately need to work on my tummy. Two massive babies ruined my stomach muscles, that's where the majority of my extra weight is. With a flat tum I reckon I could easily be in 12/14 bottoms. My boobs however have a mind of their own, breast feeding has left them HUGE!

I am exactly that height. (167cm). My measurements are 36 bust, 29 waist, 40 hips. I weigh just under 11 stone and wear a size 12 on top, 12 or 14 on the bottom.

Mylovelyboy Thu 07-Nov-13 10:58:22

Im a size 10 and weigh 9.10

JackieBrambles Thu 07-Nov-13 11:02:49

I'm 5ft6 and weigh 9 stone 6lbs. Wear a size 10.

At my heaviest (a few years ago) I was 11 stone and wore a 14 or large 12s I think.

lollylaughs Thu 07-Nov-13 11:04:14

Im 1.67m and 53kg

Mr Google says that 8.3 stone and 5ft5.

Size 8-10 clothes.

BlingBang Thu 07-Nov-13 11:05:11

About 10 and a half stone - size 12 pushing towards a 14. Need to an intend to lose a about a stone.

NumptyNameChange Thu 07-Nov-13 11:06:25

the exact height and am currently a bit bulgy at about 10st9 or 10 but wearing a 12. at 10st i'm in size 10 bottoms but usually a 12 top. at 9st7 maybe size 8 bottoms and 10 top. at 12st i'd be in 14's. think i was nearly 13 and a half stone after i had ds and wore 16's for a while.

i was 10st at the beginning of summer but have put a bit back on after surgery and bits and bobs getting in the way of getting back on the case with the 5:2'ing. must get back to it but after christmas i think.

TeaJunky Thu 07-Nov-13 11:06:38

I'm exactly that height and I weigh 9 stones.
After dd2 I went up to 11 stones but went back to my original weight.

frenchfancy Thu 07-Nov-13 11:08:33

Same height as you OP. I'm now 10st3 and (mostly) size 10. At 12st8 I was a 16. (hint 5:2 is the BEST)

I am amazed at the differences as well. Frame size and boob size must make a big difference. I'm 32F, and a large frame.

eurochick Thu 07-Nov-13 11:12:46

I'm 5'6 and a bit and currently weigh 10'2. I'm a 10-12.

My usual weight is 9'7ish and I'm a comfortable size 10 in most shops then.

sassytheFIRST Thu 07-Nov-13 11:14:34

11st5, size 14/16 on top (ENORMOUS tits), size 12-14 bottom. I'd like to be 10st4, that would make me size 12-14 on top, 10-12 on bottom.

sassytheFIRST Thu 07-Nov-13 11:15:41

Oh, and i call myself 5'7 but really same as the op.

PFBoftheDay Thu 07-Nov-13 11:17:31

I'm about 10.5 stone. 12 on top, 10-12 on bottom, though more like an 11, because a 10 is usually tight and a 12 falls down my arse.

I am rectangular shaped.

TwoPeasOnePod Thu 07-Nov-13 11:20:09

5ft 7", weighing in at 9 st 11 lb, size 10 no hips no boobs no arse, like a teenage boy wink

TwoPeasOnePod Thu 07-Nov-13 11:20:50

PFB I am also a rectangle

CooEeeEldridge Thu 07-Nov-13 11:24:39

I'm 'just under' 5'7 (make of that what you will) and am 9st 6lb and size 10. I can see exactly where the sweet stuff goes but can't knock it on the head! V active though. Your size 16 target sounds realistic.

Rockchick1984 Thu 07-Nov-13 11:27:10

OP I tend to lose a dress size when I lose a stone (roughly). Where do you usually weigh yourself, 2stone seems a huge difference between 2 sets of scales!

Rockchick1984 Thu 07-Nov-13 11:28:06

Oh, and pre DS I was 9st 7, size 10. Pregnant again, and pre-this-DC I was 10st 5, size 12.

I'm 5' 7" and I was a size 16 at 13.5 stone.

I was a size 12/14 at 9st 9lbs though.

I don't think us telling you what we might weight for any given dress size really tells you anything. We all have different builds don't we?

SupSlick Thu 07-Nov-13 12:44:07

11 stone before pregnancy & was usually a size 12.
9 stone 3 during pregnancy (Hyperemesis Gravidarum meant I couldn't keep anything down & spent most of pregnancy in hospital)
12 stone now (FU Hyperemesis) and getting bigger by the day (cakes) so am a size 14/16. Can squeeze into a size 12 if I don't breathe/didn't have boobs etc.
I'm exactly 5 ft 6.5!

Nacster Thu 07-Nov-13 12:56:15

12 stone, size 12 bum and 16 top (34jj bazonkas)

At my lightest, 10 stone 3, I was an 8 bum and 12-14 top, wearing 32J bras.

Aiming for 11 stone as that is where I look and feel the best!

cantthinkofagoodone Thu 07-Nov-13 12:59:02

I'm 10st 6 and a size 12 in normal shops. GAP I take a size 10 in jeans though!

WhereIsMyHat Thu 07-Nov-13 13:00:43

Always around 10 stone and I wear a size 10 or 12.

topknob Thu 07-Nov-13 13:04:47

5 ft 6 and weight 7 st 9....not good and am trying so hard to put weight back on.

Mermi Thu 07-Nov-13 13:08:48

Shows how little weight means when it comes to clothes sizes!

I'm 5'6 and a half.

Weigh 11 stone 3lbs after putting on a stone at the beginning of the year (trying to lose it). Still fit into my size 10 clothes and my waist is about 3 inches bigger than from when I was 8.5 stone a few years ago.

Think I'm just quite dense

Exact same height gone from 12st9 to 11st10 and now I've got to hold my hand up and say I'm a 14 and stop picking up the 16's

duckyfuzz Thu 07-Nov-13 13:14:46

Mermi I'm dense too! 5'7, 11st 5 and size 12

MadeOfStarDust Thu 07-Nov-13 13:18:09

5'7" and 15st 6 - size 20.... was an OLD size 16 when 12st7lb - that weight would make me a 14 nowadays... with size inflation....

LilyRose88 Thu 07-Nov-13 13:19:42

I am 9 stone 11 and a size 10 on the bottom and a size 12 on the top.

SpookyRestingFace Thu 07-Nov-13 13:39:09

I am 5'6", 9st and size 10-12.

MulberryHag Thu 07-Nov-13 14:11:27

I'm that height and 8 stone, obviously more when pregnant. Lost my baby weight using the Dukan Diet which was amazing if I'm honest!! Size 8 on top (and dresses) and size 10 on the bottom.
Red velvet cupcakes in the oven as I type... blush

SoullessButSunny Thu 07-Nov-13 14:20:06

5ft 2

7st on the nose.

I'm a size 8 in most things.

LaQueenOfTheDamned Thu 07-Nov-13 14:48:52

I'm just a fraction over 5ft 6.5" - just verging on 5ft 7".

My weight is pretty stable at around 11.4lbs, and today I am wearing size 12, Next, slim-fit jeans and a size 12 jumper. Can easily fit into a size 12 in most places (except teenage shops).

But, I carry all my weight around my boobs, and middle. Have a very neat bottom, and quite thin arms and legs.

Ikabod Thu 07-Nov-13 14:56:14

I'm 5'7 and currently weigh 11 stone. I'm a 12-14. I used to weigh 10 stone and was much happier at that weight. I'm a healthy eater but really need to do more exercise!

SarahFx Thu 07-Nov-13 15:26:33

I'm exactly that height and weigh 10st 9. I'm a size 12. I was verging on a 16 so more of a size 15 ha ha when I was 12st 8.

HootyMcOwlface Thu 07-Nov-13 16:20:42

I'm 5ft 6.5 inches and I'm 11.5 stone. Oh god. I was about 10.5 stone pre-pregnancy sad

HootyMcOwlface Thu 07-Nov-13 16:22:16

Forgot to add, I'm a size 14 now.

PatoBanton Thu 07-Nov-13 16:23:35

I'm about 5ft 6 3/4 and I weigh 9 stone.

I was 8 and a half before last pregnancy but am still BF so think somewhere in that is half a stone of milk grin

PatoBanton Thu 07-Nov-13 16:24:25

and am roughly a 10. sometimes 8, sometimes 12 depending on shop.

kobacat Thu 07-Nov-13 16:42:46

10.5 stone and I've dropped to a 10 bottom half, 12 top half -- I suspect because I'm horseriding a lot and that's building muscle. Not that you'd know it to look at my midsection -- that never seems to bloody change.

kobacat Thu 07-Nov-13 16:44:45

For context, when I was 11 stone (which I don't think is overweight, but it was hormonal weight gain from my old implant and I carried it badly) I was a 14. My shape's totally changed in a way that doesn't reflect my actual weight loss, which just goes to show how silly BMI is.

Guiltismymaster Thu 07-Nov-13 16:45:17

I am exactly that tall and my normal, natural weight fluctuates around 9st - size 8- 10 (depending on where you shop!). I'm lucky, but I do exercise too.
Post baby I was in size 12 jeans for a while, don't know how heavy.

Unfortunately I'm now (unintentionally!) underweight at around 8st sad - make sure you keep well above that level! I don't look good.

Rosencrantz Thu 07-Nov-13 16:47:57

Thats my exact height, and I weigh bang on 9 stone. I'm an 8, though a bit chunky on the thighs. Could do with toning up!

PatoBanton Thu 07-Nov-13 16:48:20

I was about 6st when I was very anorexic, it can't have been easy to look at me at all. At the time it didn't seem that bad.

lifesgreatquestions Thu 07-Nov-13 16:51:27

I'm 5'7" and 12.5 stone. I'm a size 14 on the bottom, 12 on the top.

Cleorapter Thu 07-Nov-13 17:22:14

9 stone 10 and a size 12.

mameulah Thu 07-Nov-13 21:18:22

OMG!!! What a lot of information. Totally appreciate your feedback everyone. Am more determined than ever now!

Am 5'7 or 5'8 (never been sure!) and about 9st 3. That's a size 8 or 10 usually.

zenoushka Thu 07-Nov-13 21:42:03

I'm 5 ft and 6 and a half inches. Am exactly 8 stone, size 8. I've always been way too skinny though. Definitely need to put some weight on.

ThisWayForCrazy Thu 07-Nov-13 21:46:53

I'm a "perfect" size 16. I'm 5,6 and weigh 12 stone 9.

LittleMissGreen Thu 07-Nov-13 21:51:38

5foot 6
Pre-kids 8stone 2
Post 3 kids and a desk job 11stone
Now back down to 9stone 10 on route to 9stone goal. Currently about a size 10bottom, 12 top.

boatclub Thu 07-Nov-13 22:23:53

I'm the same height and currently weigh 13 stone 6 and am a size 16. Depressingly' at 10 stone I was still a size 14.

LeaderofthePlebs Thu 07-Nov-13 22:38:15

Same height, weigh 12st 5ish and size 16 mostly, occasionally a 14.
