I am 5'6, and 166lbs. I wear anywhere from a size 6 to a size 10 depending on the brand. My goal weight is 135lbs. I have already lost a good amount. I was 180lbs only a few months ago.

I'm 5'8 and my normal weight range is ends somewhere at about 170 ish. I imagine yours is lower so technically by bmi you would be overweight. But..I don't stress so much about the numbers nor should others according to my doctor. There are many other factors playing here. Congrats on the weight loss. I have went from 200 to 152 my self. You rock.

Well aren't you ignorant
Not everyone carries weight the same way
My sister is 200lbs and 5'7" and wears a 12
She's muscular though and muscle weighs more

I am 5'7 and 160. I wear a 10-14. I don't consider myself plus size. When I was 130 lbs I looked sick.

Considering the fact plus size refers to sizes above 16, no you're not.
Also, bmi charts are bullshit and any good doctor will tell you it's just a basic chart and not to take it completely seriously. It doesn't take into considerations anything but height, weight, and gender.
Oh, and any gym trainer or weight loss specialist will tell you that skinny does not equal healthy. My sister is a size 12 and still considered overweight based on the chart but her doctor says her body fat percentage is BELOW average because she has built a crazy amount of muscle.
