    5'3"
    a little under 130 pounds
    BMI- 23.1

    I wear a size 6-8 in pants, usually a 4 in dresses and a small-medium top :) I think a lot of it is just based on build/muscle. Thats why someone whos 5'1" and weights more than me could be a smaller size.

    I'm around the same size and BMI and I think I have 20-22% body fat but I wear a sz 2-4 and xs and s in tops .. its all based on body type where you carry your weight and body composition

    I started my weight loss at 165lbs and size 12. I lost weight 25lbs and was at a size 6, I gained back some, but due to exercise stayed at size 6 clothes. I lost the weight I lost - plus some for a total of 35 lbs .... but at the same time, started weight training - my BMI is still in the middle range, but my body fat % is about 12% and I'm a size 0, however weight wise, I'm not that "thin" on the scale.

    IMO, it's not the scale that matters but moreso your fitness and body build.

    I'm short 5"4" - weigh 125-130 (depending on day) and wear size 0 consistently in tops and bottoms. I weighted the same in October and was still size 6 before I started really weight training.

    5'10"
    177 lbs.
    BMI 25.5
    BF: 26.11%
    Size: 10 and sometimes 12 pants, Small or occasionally Exra Small in shirts (unless it has buttons, then I'm probably a Medium)

    I was 280 pounds, BMI 40.2, BF 55% when I started. I wore a 24W in pants and XXL shirts.

    That being said, I personally think it's more important to focus on how healthy you are rather than what size you are in.

    I'm 5'7" Once upon a time, I weighed 155 lbs and wore a size 12. People told me that I was sexy. My mom thought I looked too skinny. So I know that I'm not going to ever wear a size smaller than a 10 or 12.

    Right now, I'm at 244 and my size 20 clothes fit.
