Just and FYI – for about every 10-15 pounds you can loose a pants size.  I am doing WW and I’ve lost 15 lbs so far and I’m down 1 pants size.  It is HARD to keep it up but you can do it!!

@Brown — I’m basing it off of the girl who sold me the dress.  She’s maybe an inch taller than me and about my build (if I could stop eating Zebra Cakes and get my bum to the gym).  She was also about three months pregnant when she wore the dress so she had boobies!  Which is good because I am *gifted.* The dress has a corset back so I’ve got some wiggle room.

Also, that is my weight goal in general, and the weight at which I think I will look my best.  I won’t get so small (baring like, a nasty case of swine flu) that it’ll be too big on me.

@Brown2Be – When I bought the dress, I tried on a sample size that was just a bit too big on me.. and was told that if I intended to lose weight, to purchase a size down from that.  It was over a year ago, and my weighloss stalled and I’ve gained 20 pounds since then (and gone up a size).

So I know that, to me, ~20 pounds is a size, and the dress is currently 2 size too small.  Losing 40 pounds also brings me to a very confident weight.  I’ve been there before and I like it there.  I’m plus-sized, also, and even when I lose 40 pounds, I’ll still be fat, but I’m fine with that 🙂

We can do it!  I haven’t been feeling well, but you have encourage me to open up my WW website and get tracking again!!

Oh, the arms.. I’m down about thirty pounds from my highest weight, and my arms are just.. I just don’t like them.  I didn’t hate them as much when I was trying on dresses as I thought.  I do have a little bolero I had made, and a shawl.  If I’m not feeling confident.. I’ll wear one of them the entire time.
