Size or weight?

 I'm currently 15lbs over my "healthy range" but I fit into a size 8 pants.  Which I feel is good for me since I'm 5'7".  I still would like to lose more but don't want to look to thin either.  Which are you more concerned with?

How much do you weigh? I'm 5'7 as well and my goal weight is 140.

I go more by clothing size and how they fit, not too snug. My goal size is a 2/4 (depending on brand), I'm only 5'3". But I' in that size at about 135 lbs, it always seems I weigh more than I look like I do. Right now I'm almost 29 weeks pregnant though, so my 2/4's will have to wait a bit longer. :)

I thought weight would matter more and in the beginning it did.  But I'm still 7-9lbs away from pre-pregnancy weight but I fit perfectly in my pre-pregnancy clothes.  I'm in better shape now then I was then.  I was 160 when I get pregnant but my goal weight is 130-135.  I'm 5'4".

I'm at a "healthy range" its on the higher side but its still healthy and my size 9's are still tight. I want to lose another 10lbs b/c then they may fit with ease and that is my only concern right now. Whether its weight or inches I want my size 9's to be comfy not unbearable!

I'm 5'7" and weigh 145ish and wear 8s and some 6s my goal is 135 though, but I do think I will be a little on the skinny side lol but first I have to get there to determine that! Lol

I can only wish to be in a single digit size!!! Right now I wear about 16 but they are getting baggy. Yay!!  I think clothing size wise is what I will be happy with. We'll see when I get there?!

I think I have a goal weight and size in mind now. I want to be in my healthy range. Which I am now 4 pounds away!!! And I would love to be in a size 5/6. I'm in a 7 right now and I'm finally not looking like a sausage in them !! :)

Quoting becky.wallin:

Right now I'm 169.  I just feel that's high for a size 8 but that is what I'm in and some are a little lose.

When I met my husband I was underweight by about 10 lbs.  I weighed 115 but I looked sickly.  My bones were visible in areas and I just didn't look good.  Right now I'm 132 and pretty muscular but I wear the same size clothes I did at 115 without my bones showing and looking unhealthy.  So I would say size.  Remember that muscle weighs more than fat and is much smaller.

I'm 5'6" BTW and 132 in a 3 or 5 depending on manufacturer.
