Weight Loss, Fitness & Health Weight Loss, Fitness & Health

I have seen comments here and there about weight and the sizes of clothing people wear/wore at that weight and maybe I don''t carry it as well as I thought I did.  I knew I was fat, but at 239 and wearing an 18-20 I thought I was doing alright...

Now, I'm 176.  I am in 14 to 16 size pants (depending on what they are) or larges now  and was in 10-12's last time I lost weight and was in the mid 150's.  I am 5 ft 7 or 8, so it's not a height thing -or rather a lack of it

I just find it...odd? I guess that someone who is like 180 or 190 says they can wear size 12's, or someone around 200 can wear 14's

*I know I shouldn't compare myself to others-but somehow, I can't figure out how this can be!  

I don't really have a question or anything, just an observation really

A gal pal and I are weight loss buddies..and this whole time we have been within a few lbs of each other and are roughly the same height..and she is always one size smaller in pants than I am! Go figure. Haha
yes I agree it is strange. :)

I'm 130-135 now and a 2/4.
