How many lbs?

In your experience, how many pounds did it take to lose 1 jean size? I want to lose 1 jean size really soon and I'm guessing 12 pounds should do it? Does that sound right?

It's not really a number of lbs. If you're toning you may go down a size but not lose any weight at all. If you're not toning though I'd say a rough guide is about 7lbs. How tall are you?

i´m 5´4 and 12lbs would be one or two jeans sizes for me... it´s hard to say because of all the different fits etc...
it´s sometimes a matter of how fast you lose it, if you only lose water weight, then it´s different again

I'm 5'5 1/2". It wouldn't be toning because I really don't work out much at all except for a little bit of walking and maybe yoga once in a while. It'd be strictly lbs lost due to diet that'd make me smaller I'm sure.

I think 10 pounds would do it , but I'm not sure. It's not in lbs, it's more how you lose those pounds and where!

This. I've got a really small frame so if I gain 7lb I'll gain a size, but for bigger-framed people it might be different.

Yes you need about 12 pounds I lost that amount and I lost 1 or 2 sizes on everything.

Ha well I guess around 8lbs needs to be my first goal weight because I just bought new jeans that are one size too small. Usually not a smart idea but they are designer and are awesome! Very motivating.

I think 5-7 lbs for them to fit on your body, and around 10 for them to actually look good.

THIS. just wanted to write the same... fitting into a certain size, meaning to be able to zip it up while holding on your breathe and actually looking good in it are two very different thing imo...
