To ask if you're 5ft 5 and size 10-12 how much you weigh?

I'm on a diet. I'm 5ft 5 and a 14 currently. I weigh 10st 6, down from 11st 1.

I used to be size 8 but I'm over 40 now so think 10 is more realistic.

If you're my height and a 10-12 what do you weigh? Is my goal of 8st 10 about right or too low?

I am 5 foot 4, 44 years old and weigh between 8 stone 9 and 8 stone 12 depending on what day of the week it is.

Or I did before I spent a week on a sun lounger drinking wine hmm

Iamblossom Fri 23-Aug-19 11:37:26

And yes I am a size 10

That sounds quite low to me — I'm a size 10 and weigh about nine and a half. I suppose it depends on your shape though.

Sorry, meant to add that I'm more on the 8-10 size than the 10-12, but I think it's because I'm an hourglass so it's all evenly distributed!

I'm 5"5 and currently 10 stone and a size 12 just about.

I've been 9 stone before and was still a size 12 but could be a 10 in some things.

For me I think to be comfortably in a size 10 I'd need to below 9 stone.

I am 5’5” and currently weight about 9stone 4lbs (58kilos) and am a size 10-could do with dropping the 4lbs but it’s not happening as am on holiday eating and drinking my way through France!

I am 9st 11 and 5’ 5”, wear a 10 -12 but small of boob. At you target weight I wore 8 - 10 but then I had a waist ( more straight up and down now) smile

I’m 5’4” and 9.5. I’d say I was a ten based on the traditional sizing charts but it depends on the shop as some shops eg M and S come up big and some come up small. There is no standard sizing any more.
8.10 is fine but no one knows without seeing you what your frame is like. I’d prob get a bit skeletal under 9st but my 5’7” friend who is very fine boned and willowy wouldn’t.

62 kg. I have a fair amount of muscle though. Currently thinking about trying to drop a couple of kilos to see how that affects my training.

Thanks. Sounds like it's about right then. Just feels so hard to get there! I've never had to diet before but middle age has hit me hard. Joining a gym when School goes back too.

I'm just under 5'4" and a size 10-12 and I weight 11 stone 5pounds

I weight quite heavy , but still fit in to size 10 or 12, depending on the shop

Paraballa Fri 23-Aug-19 11:45:43

Oh and I am one of those "heavier than I look" people. Friends are surprised how much I weigh but I used to have muscle. I don't at the moment. I'm just fat.

I'm 5ft 3inches a size 10 and weigh 11 stone. My stomach is completely flat and I work out 3 times a week.

My sister on the other hand is the same height, same size but weighs 9 stone. She doesn't work out and has a really small frame so doesn't carry weight well as I do. I look 'skinnier' than her even though i'm not.

5"5, I'm a size 10 and I weigh 10st 9

beakyboo10 Fri 23-Aug-19 11:50:17

I am 5ft5 and weigh 56kg which is about 8 stone 12. I wear size 12 trousers/ jeans and generally size 10 tops and dresses. I gave birth 10 months ago so I feel like I need to tone up my stomach which would get me back in a size 10 jeans.

Mammyloveswine Fri 23-Aug-19 11:55:41

I'm around 11stone atm and a size 10 (they're are starting to feel snug) at 5 foot 5.. my "slim" weight is 9 stone 12 and I'm a size 8 at that weight.

I have big boobs and a small waist though and wear a lot of dresses/skirts. I wear skinny jeans or jeans with stretch.

It's so varied. If I was 8 stone 10 I'd look ill. I am planning to get back down to 9 stone 12 though and have taken up running and will be doing the fast800 once the kids are back at school and I know what day it is lol!

"I'm 5ft 3inches a size 10 and weigh 11 stone. My stomach is completely flat and I work out 3 times a week"

My BMI is 25 which says i'm overweight, my GP told me not to worry too much about that as the extra weight is on my boobs (34F) and not round my waist.

Why are there so many of these threads at the moment?

katesalwayslate Fri 23-Aug-19 12:07:07

This really confuses me because i'm 5'6 and size 10, but I weigh (and always seem to weigh!) around 11 stone. I'm not really sure why? My weight is evenly distributed and no like major problem areas/don't seem overweight/eat really healthily and walk/cycle constantly. I have been the same weight for years and it doesn't seem to change much even when I go on more of a health kick and look lighter, or even right after pregnancy when I looked much heavier.

I am 5’5 and 8 stone 10. I would buy a size 10 mainly but some 8s from shops like Next and M&S

MrsD28 Fri 23-Aug-19 12:09:22

5'5" and usually weigh about 9 and a half stone at: size 8-10 on top and size 12 on the bottom (big bum!). Currently (very) pregnant so significantly more than that right now...

Basketofkittens Fri 23-Aug-19 12:11:03

5’7 and weigh 8 stone and a size 10. I ideally want to get under 8 stone and be a size 8 #lifegoals #sofat

BettyCrockaShit Fri 23-Aug-19 12:11:41

Anywhere between 10st 3lb and 10st 11lb, depending on water-retention/whether I've been on the KitKats or not. It doesn't tend to make too much of a difference to how my clothes fit, and I can usually lose any excess relatively quickly (although it's definitely getting harder with age).

Floopily Fri 23-Aug-19 12:12:38

5ft 4 and just over 10st, size 12. Large of boob though so often a 14 on the top. I'd love to be around 9st or a bit less, reckon that would be perfect. I'm lazy and I like cake though.
