5"6' & 175 lbs - What size are you?


Quote  |  Reply

I have lost a total of 47 pounds so far this year and am getting close to my first goal weight, 178.  I was wondering if anyone else who had similar stats would be willing to share.

SW:  226 - Size 18

CW: 179 - Size 12 (sometimes 10 depending on the manufacturer)

GW: I think that 156 is a good number.  I think I would be close to a size 6/8 then, but not sure.  I have a rather large frame.  I would be interested to know your size and goal weight if you are interested in sharing.

Thanks for the info!

I am 5'6'' and weigh around 155 but I am still a size 10. I have been trying to lose weight and did. I was 162 this summer but was a 10 then too! just a little snug haha. However, I can notice a difference and its not that much weight. So I am thinking 140something will get me down to a size 8. But I have larger hips so you may be able to get down to a 6 or 8! Good luck!

I also am 5'6 and am 156 right now. Im a size 8/10 depending on the manufacturer. I am trying to get down to around 136-140 and hopefully be somewhere in the 4/6 size group (I have a smaller frame, just carry all my weight in my midsection!!)

You've done great so far! Keep up the good work!!

I am 5'6 at 173 and size 16 STILL.  Down 25lbs and still the same size-jeans do fit a little big could probably go to size 13/14 but I'm not buying again until size 10!!!!  HA HA

My goal is 140 probably size 8 but we'll see

I'm 5'6 and from 186- 170s I was a 12/14...at 161 I am still a 12 or a 10/12. I'm a 13 in Levi's Juniors. It really depends on where you shop.  I have  large frame and am aiming for 150...even then I will probably still be an 8/10.

Well I am just getting started.  I am 5'6" and I weight 162 (as of Monday).  All my weight is in my tummy area.  I am currently wearing a size 12 because of the waist.  My GW is around 140 and I'd love to be in a size 6/8 again. 

Thanks so much for all of the information everyone.  I am so excited to complete my journey and hit my goal weight of 156.  I appreciate your support!

At my largest I was 187 and I wore a size 12 and could squeeze into a 10, but that's before I started practicing yoga and when I had a sedentary job.  Fast forward 5 years and I am 5'6" and I weigh 175.  I have many pairs of AB Studio pants from Kohls and Merona pants from Target that are are size 6.  I sure do love that vanity sizing.  I think if it was 10 years ago, the pants would say 10, not 6.  Most of my work pants are Merona from Target.  Since I've gained weight, all of my pants are the tightest in the waist.  I could get a larger size of pants, but then they are too big in the hips and butt and I feel like it's more of a middle aged look, which at 32, I'm not going for.  :)

My GW is 165.  I love food too much to weigh any less than that. 

at 212 pounds I was jean size 19. at 178 pounds I'm a 15. My dress size is 14. I am also 5'6" but must carry it different than you. I'd love to be a 10 or 12! 130-140 is the weight I'm ultimately working toward.

Being 5'6", when I was 170 lbs I fit a 13/14. Down to about 160 about and a 13 is a litte loose. :S

i'm 5'6 and started my diet at 212 at jean size 18. i'm at 202 right now, goal is 175.. im obviously not seeing as drastic results right now, but when I was at 175, I fit into 12/14 pants. Some girls carry their weight more at the top, some more at the bottom, it all depends. I carry my weight at the bottom, so my pants arent going to be as small as maybe someone who carries it more at the top. Hope this helps!

I'm 5'6" as well and currently I weigh 156 lbs. I typically wear a size 10 when I go shopping now. (But sometimes depending on the store/brand, I can wear an 8 or 12--go figure.)

I'm 5'6 and I currently weigh 139. I started in January at 175 and I was a size 12. And I don't really have any clothes that fit properly, but I'm a size 6-8 ish now. I still have somewhere between 4 and 9 lbs to lose, and that is when I will go clothes shopping! I still kind of look like a homeless person now with all my baggy clothes!
