I'm 5'6'' (barely haha) and I started MFP last month at 192..now 188 shooting for 155-145. Right now I wear a 12 (sometimes 14) and would eventually want to wear an 8.

5'7" - started at 165 and am currently at 153. My goal is 140 however when I had a BMR done, I was told my ideal weight should be 149. It's taken 6 months to get here, I'll see how I feel once I hit 149! I've definitely gone down in size - from a 10/12 to a 6/8.

I am currently 5'8.75" and 155ish. I wear a size 10. My goal is 145 and a size 8. I've been there and it's pretty thin for me.

At 180 I was a size 14.

I am 5'6" and currently 258lbs. My big goal is to get down to a size 8/10 or around 160lbs. I have a long way to go...

I am 5'6" and 165 pounds. I wear a pant size 10-12. My goal weight is to be 135-140.

I am 5'7, 169 pounds, 29.5 waist, 43 hips, will probably forever be a size 13 since my butt and thighs don't seem to shrink.. EVER. Though, I somehow managed to shimmy into a size 6 dress recently (very tightly fitted.) I'm sure that was just a fluke.

My goal is 145 pounds, size 7/8.. :D Here's to hoping.

I am 5'7" and my goal is between 160 and 180 pounds. I have a large frame, so I don't think I will ever be smaller than a size 10. How tall are you, how much do you weigh and what size are you?


I am 5'7". I currently weigh 162...but was at about 170 in the picture below. I wear between a size 10-12 bottoms, M/L top. I've never been smaller than that in clothing size.

I am 5' 8 1/2" tall and this morning I hit 150.

Last weekend, I fit into a size 6 ... which was a first for me. Most of my clothes are size 8's and are getting a little loose ... and I too have a larger than average frame.

i am 5'7 used to be 195 currently i am 154.lbs my goal is to reach 140... my size is 10 but i have a large frame too specially my hips so now im focusing more on toning...

I am 5'6" (small frame) and currently weigh 169. I currently wear size10/12 bottoms and M/L tops. My goal is 135, which will hopefully be a size 6/8. Don't shoot me, but before having my two kids (who are almost 13 & 15) I was a 115 pound size 4. The closest I have gotten to that post children was 127 size 6, but that was 10 years ago!! Now being over 40, I don't think I can achieve that again (or realistically maintain it if I do), so I am shooting for 135-140, to be in the middle of the "normal" BMI range.

I am just under 5'6'', and I've always been really curvy/muscular. If I'm under 145, I look strange and almost a bit sickly. So, my goal weight is 150. (I look best as a size 8/10, so that's what I'm aiming for.) :)
August 2, 2011 12:07 PM
i also thought i could never be less than a size 10 since i was "big boned"

that is crap...i'm 5"7 and weigh 157 lbs size 4/6 , i stared at 190 at a 12/14. You can do anything you put your mind to

I am 5'7" and currently around 170, I wear a 10/12. My goal is 155-160 and a size 8. The last time I was a size 8, I weight 149 but I have a lot more muscle than I used to so I think another 10-15 should do it. It seems like it is taking forever though!

We are exactly the same! I'm 5'7 and 153. I'm a large frame girl, with curves. I'm wearing mostly 8's now but I need to do some shopping becuase my pants sag in the bootie.

I'm 5-8" and weigh 170 lbs and wear a size 10! Don't think I'm going to get any smaller either! Started out of 300 lbs wearing a size 24!

I'm 5'8" and currently 175.6 and I'm a "slightly-too-tight-but-don't-want-to-buy-bigger" size 10. At my highest ever (college) I was about 185 and a size 12.

My goal weight is to get back to my pre-husband weight of about 152 and a size 6-8, although I'd really love to make that 145 and a size 4-6. No big deal if I stop at 150 as I was in good shape then. Time will tell I suppose!!

Started at 292 and am currently 191. I wear mostly 14s and some 12s. My body shape and the current trend for low rise jeans don't mix! I am 5'8" with a large frame. My first goal is going to be 160 then I am going to have my body fat tested again and decide where to go from there. I seriously doubt I go lower than 150 though. I would love to be a size 8 when all is said and done.
