What size pants do you wear?

When I started MFP in March of 2011, I weighed 183 lbs and was wearing a size 14 in pants . My goal was to be 135 lbs and wear a 7/8 . Yesterday I went shopping and bought all 5/6 pants and they fit so comfortable!! Not tight at all. I weighed in this morning at 141. I am 5'2". I am just floored that I am not even to goal and am wearing a smaller pant size than I was even shooting for. :noway: Anyone else wearing a smaller size than you ever dreamed you would?

    32 atm. Last year I wore 34 but when I started lifting in Sept/Oct of last year my measurement around the navel was 39".

    Now I'm 33". Feelsgoodman.jpg

    I never thought I would see size 8 again. I was aiming for size 10 (I was size 14, 180 lbs 5'10"). Now I am 142 lbs and my size 8 jeans are loose! I might be able to fit into a size 6. I really can't believe it. I can't wait to go shopping!

    A 7 is a junior's size and not cut for a woman per se (I find they don't allow room for hips and booty).

    I wear a size 8 women's (typically low rise style) or medium in workout pants/skirts.

    That's my goal size weight so I'm trying to maintain. I'm 5'6" 136 lbs, age 34.

    When I started with MFP my goal was to weigh 135; I was wearing size 6 pants at that time
    I re-set my goal to 127, then re-set it to 125. I currently weigh 124.5 and wear size 2/4 pants (US size) :ohwell:
    I never in my wildest dreams every thought I'd be able to reach my 125 goal. I'm 5'5" and 56 years old to boot :happy:

    I am also 5'2" and currently wearing a 12 -- when I started I was a size 20!! Can you imagine, 5'2" size 20!!!

    My goal is also a size 8, but my goal weight is 136. I feel like at 136 I'll be much smaller than an 8!

    Not me yet. I have extra belly fat/skin due to being short torsoed and having no room for my babies to go when pregnant than out (I was over 54" around when pregnant with my second).

    I weigh 178 and my size 16s are mostly too big with a couple fitting pretty good in the tummy but big everywhere else. 14s are still too tight in my tummy.

    I'm 5'4"

    Proof that the scale is not the ultimate goal!!! :D

    I started at a STUFFED into an 18 and now I'm at a 10/12. I'm more interested in losing inches than pounds now, though another 10lbs or so would be nice!

    P.S. Pants in the US for women have no standard sizing. That's why one to the next from the same rack will fit differently. Find a brand you like that fits you well and stick with it. What I stated above, a 5 is a junior's size, as is a 5/6 so you will find a women's 6 fits differently.

    6/8, I was this low after my 2nd pregnancy, but prior to that I never thought I'd get below a 10.

    I have similar stats as you. I'm 5'2..started at 200 lbs and a size 14....now I'm 154 6-8 (eights are getting lose) and my original goal weight was 135....(which actually isn't possible given how much lean mass I have)

    And the crazy thing about it, I'm only 6 lbs lighter than last year, but have drop 2-3 dress sizes.

    Congratulations! That's a great NSV. I started in January weighing 207 and wearing a 16W (16 in the plus size stores). Now I weigh about 160 and wear a regular 12 and a lot of those are loose but I can't fit the 10 yet. The size 12 is a huge accomplishment for me. I don't think I'll get smaller than an 8 or so but we'll see. Keep up the great work :)

    I can't believe I'm about to post this....But I'm incredibly excited about my current size....Sooooo...

    Six months ago, I was wearing 32w jeans. Today, I'm wearing 20w jeans. I think the last time I wore a size 20, I was a junior in high school. It's an incredible feeling.

    I started between a 16 an 18, I'm in a 12 now. When I started I wanted to be in a 10, but I know I'll be in a smaller size than that when I'm done :)
