I always see that your waist needs to be under 35 inches for women and 40 for men for decent health. However, I am not sure if they are referring to the actual waist of women or the abdominal circumference. Anyhow, I am interested in knowing what both your waist size and abdominal circumferences are. If you have or are recovering from an ED and would find this to be triggering PLEASE DO NOT READ OR REPLY for the sake of your own health. Thank you.
I am 148-152lbs- 28.5 inch waist- 31 around the abdomen.
Thank you for your participation,
Your waist is the smallest part of your natural line, that for women means sitting just a little above the belly button but for men right on it. It really depends if you are male or female as to what is considered your "waist".
Right now mine is a 36", it sounds horrible but when you started out somewhere in the 50"+ range it looks pretty good!
Well I'll probably be one of the higher posts this thread. I don't usually see higher numbers on this type of thread.
Waist: 35 inches
I'm 5'8'' and 128 lbs
My waist is 26'' and my abdomen is 29.5''
I'm 5'5 female 158-159 pounds. My waist at smallest point is 30.5, at my belly button 33.5, my hips are 39. I'm more of an apple shape and carry more weight in my waist.
That is AWESOME.
P.S. I don't recognize ANYTHING "horrible" about a 14+ inch reduction in waist circumference!
right now: wt. 147, waist is 31 3/4", bust and hips 40" I want to lose a couple of inches in hips, maybe some in waist.
Im 5"1 and 107.8 pounds my waist is 26 1/4 and my hips are 35
My waist is level with my belly button... am I a freak?? I am 5'11.. my belly button piercing rejected when I was 16 because my skin creased exactly on the navel.
Dunno where an abdominal measurement is taken, but my waist is 29.5" :)
Weight is 184
I'm 5'6...weight 153 as of 10-12 days ago (I ty to stay off the scale!)
My waist is 32
Abdomen is 36
Would like to lose 4, 6 and 3 inches, respectively. :)
Goal weight is 130-135.
I'm 5'3", 193.8 pounds as of this morning.
Waist is 36, hips are 45.
Hoping to get to 150 pounds, we'll see how it goes from there!
I'm 5'3", 120 lbs and have a waist of 27 inches but while I don't want to lose weight I want to tone up and lose an inch or two of that. That'd be awesome if I could get a 25 inch waist!!
5'3", 126-127 lbs (ugh!) 26 inch waist, 29 inch abdomen. When I'm around 120lbs my waist tends to be 25.5 inch, and when 117lbs-ish, my waist tends to be 25 inches.
hips, ha! that's another story. I'm currently at 37 inches, at 120lbs I'm 36 inches, and when I'm 113lbs (to thin for my taste) I'm 35 inches.
It is great to see so many people willing to share their current stats and goals and feel comfortable with it! I have come to realize that my body will not ever be "perfect" per say, but I figure that as long as I am at a healthy weight and do my best to be healthy overall I will be satisfied. After all there is nothing better than your best! Thanks again for all of your contributions! I wish each of you well whether you are maintaining, losing, or otherwise..
Height: 5'6" (was 5'7" pre-pregnancy, but the slope left in my back post-pregnancy takes away a full inch somehow).
Natural waist: 33 1/2 inches
Belly button: 38 1/4 inches
Hips: 43 1/2 inches
Still 8 1/4 inches to lose at my belly button, and only 38 pounds left to lose... I really need to buy weights when I can. Everything seems to be coming off at my natural waistline right now... I'm hoping that changes for the last half of my weight loss. I've lost almost 4 inches from my belly button area, though, so I can't complain.
Height - 5'9
Waist - 26 inches
