And what size does that make you?

I’m currently 10 st 10, I feel good at 10 stone but my goal is 9 st 10. I’m currently a 10/12, 10 stone will make me a solid size 10.

I agree. 10 stone. I’m currently 39 weeks pregnant and have put on 2 stone so it will be dieting for me soon. Not looking forward to it but I can’t afford to buy new clothes! I

I'm happiest with my weight at around 9 stone/size 8

I’m 5”7 and 11 stone at the mo having lost 10 pounds in the last 3 weeks. I’m aiming to get to 10 stone. I’m not sure if that’s my ideal since I’ve not been 10 stone for as long as I can remember, it just seemed like a good round number smile I’m going back to work from maternity leave in 4 weeks so would like to buy some new clothes in a smaller size and feel a bit happier with myself.

10 stone here too. Leaves me a size 10. I was quite muscular at 10 stone so that will have an impact. I don't think I will fit in size 10 jeans after having a baby. I've lost a stone since having DD but still need to drop another 1.5

I'm 5ft 7, 10 stone 12 and a size 14..... weird how everyone carries weight differently! I'd like to be a size 12 - not sure what weight I'd need to be for that? 10 stone?

Judashascomeintosomemoney Wed 23-May-18 20:49:26

Trying it is weird isn’t it? If I am 9st 10lbs I am below a size 8 and I look ill tbh, to the extent my friends/family have commented. I need to be 11st to be a healthy looking size 10.

Bobbiepin Wed 23-May-18 20:51:09

judas I also looked ill when I was that weight but was still a size 10. A couple of extra pounds seemed to go to my face and made me look less heroin chic.

5'8" here. 12 stone when I got married and mostly in size 10/12. It felt easily maintained. My healthy BMI is 11st4lbs, got down to that and honestly looked gaunt.

Age is a factor. Too little fat and the lost collagen really shows..
At 17 I was 9st 3 and looked slim and healthy. Cheekbones! A 1980s 10-12.
At 27 I was 9 10 and looked great. A 12
At 47 11st 12, size 16, a bit lumpy and shapeless.
Now my ideal is 10st 7 and a modern 12 (1980s 14-16) Any less, over 50, my face collapses.

9 stone is right for me.

wendz86 Wed 23-May-18 21:28:45

I'm 5 ft 6 and i'm aiming for 9 stone 10 also. I would like to be a little less but find it hard to maintain.

00100001 Wed 23-May-18 21:30:15

5'7", 10st 7lb, size 10 bottom, 8 top.

Feel okish

wendz86 Wed 23-May-18 21:30:22

I still can't get into a size 10 jeans even when I get down to 9 1/2 stone, my weight always clings to my thighs.

PleaseDontHate Wed 23-May-18 22:11:44

Currently 8st 8lb, but I'd loooove to lose a bit and maybe get done to 8st 6lb or so.

One can only dream....

Petitepamplemousse Wed 23-May-18 22:16:01

My ideal weight is 9st 2 and muscular. That’s an 8-10. Right now I’m 9 st 7 and muscular and a size 10. If I was 10 stone I’d be about a small 12.
I don’t have kids yet, I’m sure my ideal weight may change.

SleepFreeZone Wed 23-May-18 22:17:52

Yep. 10’stone something is good for me. I’m currently 11 stone something and I feel horrible.

C0untDucku1a Wed 23-May-18 22:19:37

Im 8 and a half stone and a size 8/10. I feel too big at 9 stone. 8 stone 3 and im a definite 8. But im too addicted to crisps for that.

Cheeseislife Wed 23-May-18 22:20:34

According to this about 3 stone less than I am 😐

Childrenofthesun Wed 23-May-18 22:23:38

I'm 5'7 and 9 and a half stones. I look slim but my size 10 trousers are a bit snug around the waist as that's where I carry my weight. I have a nice slim waist at around 9 stone but then my face, neck and arms look too thin!

Bringonspring Wed 23-May-18 22:23:51

I’m 10 stone and aiming to get to 9 stone 10 where I feel happiest. Sodding scales seem stuck at friggin 10 stone though

Joinourclub Wed 23-May-18 22:24:36

I'm currently hovering around 10 stone. Wanting to get down to 9.5 stone.

Lifeaback Wed 23-May-18 22:25:04

I’m 5 ft 6 (and a bit), currently 10st 6 after having DD4 3 months ago. I would say my ideal is probably 9st 5 as this is what I was hovering around before getting pregnant and I was very toned and happy with my body. Anything lower than 9stone and I lose my bum and my face looks ill, it suited me in my twenties but looks awful now I’ve aged

Frosty66612 Wed 23-May-18 22:26:57

I’m 12 stone and a size 14. I’d like to get to 10 and a half which would make me a 10 on top and a 12 on bottom

Moneyissue2 Wed 23-May-18 22:31:00

Currently 11stone size 12/14
Want to get back to 10 stone or just under to be 8/10
I always have skinny legs but fat tum and shoulders/arms
