How much do you weigh?

I know its relative, but I'm on a journey to get back to size 10. Right now I'm aiming for a healthy BMI and I've gone from 186lbs to 168lbs so far (healthy BMI would put me at 159lbs)

I'm a mostly comfortably size 12 but only just. A big meal would make Jean's uncomfortable. I'm just looking for a guide for the next goal.

In case anyone is interested, I'm on 1220 kcal a day, doing Chloe Ting's summer shred challenge, running twice a week and cycling at least 20km every day.

What’s that in kg ?

Katinthedoghouse Tue 28-Jul-20 13:27:10


That puts me in the comfortable bmi tabge and I’m a 10/12

Gone from 86kg to 76kg. First goal is 70kg give or take a couple of grams

8st 6 (53.5kg). I think that's around 120lb?

I'm a small 10 (used to be a true 10 but, vanity sizing).

I'm 5'6" and weigh 165lbs at the moment, and am size 12 with some clothes a little too tight after a big meal. When I was a size 10 I was more around the 140-145lb mark.

Good for you for losing 20lbs!! That's what I'm aiming for myself!

I'm actually 5ft 6 and a half but I'm 8st 4lbs.

I'm a 10 in most places. But that shrinks to an 8 or even 6 in M&S and Next.

I am a size 10, 5 ft 6.5 and weigh 138lbs .

SallyWD Tue 28-Jul-20 13:33:59

I'm 5ft7 about 143lbs (10 stone 3lbs). I'm a pear shape with a big bottom and thighs so as 12 on the bottom and 10 on the top.

Bobbiepin Tue 28-Jul-20 13:34:46

@StuntCroissant may I be really rude and ask how you carry the weight? At 5'7 when I dropped below 10st I looked really unwell. 8st would look awful on me!

145lbs sounds a long way off but I think that would be reasonable! Thank you, it's not been easy but definitely worth it.

I'm around 150lbs and a comfortable 10 on bottom and 8-10 on top. I'm quite muscular and pear shaped and I think that has a bearing. IME pear shaped people tend to weight more but fat around the middle is unhealthier than that around the hips and thighs. People don't believe me when I say how much I weigh. I'm a stone and a half heavier than my same height apple shaped friend who has skinny arms and legs and a big tummy. I'd imagine I'm healthier than her though.

I’m a definite 12 at 147lbs. I reckon I’ll need to lose another stone to get down to a 10.

StuntCroissant Tue 28-Jul-20 17:45:51

@Bobbiepin I'm probably an athletic pear (😂) if that's makes sense - so I if I put on weight it all tends to go on my thighs, calves and bum. I have quite a long torso so have maintained a flat stomach without having to do very much.

WhatILoved Tue 28-Jul-20 18:53:06

I am 5ft 8 and 137 lbs. today's 10 all over. I need to get size small if a medium is classed as 10-12. In other European countries I sit firmly in medium.

clockoclock Tue 28-Jul-20 19:04:41

I'm just under 5'8 and weigh about 9 and a half stone (61kg). Size 10 in most shops. and apple shape. Size 8 or even getting towards a size 6 in places such as Next, Joules or M&S (defo vanity sizing in those shops).

TheMumblesofMumbledom Tue 28-Jul-20 19:14:55

Size 10 for me at a smidge shorter would be about 144llbs. I'm aiming to get back there but have 4 flipping stone to lose shock

Whatthebloodyell Tue 28-Jul-20 19:20:33

I’m 146 pounds and a small size 12, sometimes size 10 on top. When I was 9 and a half stone I was a comfortable 10 and that is what I would like to get back to, but it is difficult!

BrassicaBabe Tue 28-Jul-20 20:04:03

5'7, size 10. Happy between 135-139lb. Bounce to about 145 when some size 10 gets a bit tight.

paddingtonbearsmarmalade Tue 28-Jul-20 20:21:44

I’m 5’7 and rather overweight 😬 but I’m aiming for 145lbs which will put me in the middle of the “healthy” BMI range.

MinnieMousse Tue 28-Jul-20 20:29:25

Not good at lbs or kg but I'm 5'7 and fit in my size 10s at anything between 9 and 9 1/2 stone. At 9 stone things are quite loose and at 9 1/2 trousers are a bit snug around the middle. I carry all my weight around my stomach though. Even at 9 1/2 stone the legs of some trousers etc can be a bit baggy but feel tight around the waist.

lmfaoo Tue 28-Jul-20 20:35:39

I'm 5"7 and have recently gone from 156lbs (size 14) to 140lbs (small 12) i reckon I'll need to lose another 7lbs to be a comfortable 10. I'm an hourglass shape though with a small waist and wide hips/ bust.

Atla Wed 29-Jul-20 14:12:15

I'm overweight at the moment but I'm 5ft 7.5 and was a size 10/12 at about 140lb, I'd have to be below that to be a true size 10 9/9.7lb? Its been so long I cant remember wink

hamstersarse Wed 29-Jul-20 14:16:40

I’m 5’7 and weigh 9 stone, sometimes a few pounds under

I wear mostly 8s (vanity sizing) some size 10s

newdocket Wed 29-Jul-20 14:19:30

Am 5.7 and a bit, weigh 130lbs and am a 10, can be an 8 in some shops, or a 12 in others.

MrsR87 Wed 29-Jul-20 14:24:55

I'm almost 5 foot 8 and a size 8-10. Pre-pregnancy I weighed 150 lbs.
