That was my lowest weight...I had lost 70 lbs to get there.  I had gone from a size 22 to a size 12 and was happy with that!  Actually...I don't think I would have looked healthy if I lost much more weight than that.  I just read a post about a woman who got to around that weight as well...she's the same height as me (5'9") and she was in a size 4!!!

It just shows how different body types can make a big difference.  I'm curious of what size clothes others' wear who are around my height and weight.  Here's a pic of me when I was size 12 and 160:

I was a 12 at 160 pounds.  My lowest weight was 112 and was in a 6/7.  I don't know how it's possibly for someone to be a 4 weighing in at 160 pounds.  I guess anything is posible....

Damn. I'm 5'4 and usually wear a 12 or slightly smaller and I have never weighed over 140 when not pregnant. I don't like clothes being remotely tight though.

I think it can also depend on whether this was before or after kids. A certain weight on me before DD was a much smaller size then the same weight on me after having kids.

I am 5'3" and weigh 158.  I wear a size 14 pant.  I have a large butt and wide hips.   But everyone I know says I don't look like I weigh that much.  I'll put up a pic if I can find a recent one.

Quoting JMVITT:

That's what I was thinking...it just doesn't seem possible.  There is no way I would ever fit in a 4...let alone even an 8 I bet!
