Sharon, I have no idea. I seem to be at a decent weight, comparative to many people who have had recent success, but unlike them, I am not fitting into size 6 or 8. I am still stuck at a size 12, which is a fantastic drop from a size 1X but sometimes frustrating because my butts just dont seem to want to lose any of their counterparts. Being stuck with 5 butts is really annoying. I wish I could afford liposuction because I am sure my size would drop to a 6 automatically!
