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!!!

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

9 st 10, size 10/12

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.

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.

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!

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......

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

SauceForTheGander Wed 06-Nov-13 22:53:48

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)
