I was wondering if a person can go from say a weight of 315 pounds down to wearing a size 0 pants?
I'm sure it's not impossible, but improbable. A lot of people who have never been overweight could never be a size 0.
Nothing is impossible, but I agree with it being improbable.
I lost over 100 pounds and I would guess that I had at least 10 pounds of extra skin on me after losing all that weight.
At 5'9" and 140 (134 at the lowest) the smallest pants I ever fit in was a size 3-- and that was a very generous brand. Usually I'm a size 8.
Anyway I do think it's possible to be a size 0-- but that's going to depend on your body type. I don't think I could ever make it down that far. And you might be fighting extra skin, though genetics and how long you've been over weight can play a role in that.
it depends on the person (body type, height etc) but a size 0 is likely too drastic and not really healthy. the only size 0 people i've seen who are natural size 0 are those who are very petite and thin. my aunt and cousin are this way; everyone else in my family is usually a natural size 4 or 6.
if you are over 5'3 or 5'4, it's unlikely that you'll be a size 0. i can get to a size 0 but that's a very unhealthy weight for me -- i'm a natural size 2/4.

ummm, my skeleton is absolutely no smaller than a size 4, i would have to have someone grind down my hips
I would not say it is impossible. But I would say it is highly unlikely. If your frame is such that it can pack on that much extra weight, I'd say it is unlikely that you'd ever be capable of being a size 0. The heaviest I ever weighed (not pregnant) was 185 lbs. The smallest size I have EVER worn is a 2... and that was only in some brands -- not even a solid 2. It's all about your frame.
Unlikely, particularly without the benefit of surgery to remove the excess skin from that type of dramatic weightloss.
