Anybody brave enough to post their waist measurement?

I've just measured my waist. shock It's 40in and I'm only 5ft 2!

I do seem to put weight on round my middle since having the kids. I think it's part fat and part shot muscles.

My waist is 31, a year ago it was 41. I'm short too (5ft 4). I still have a mummy tummy and muffin top but I'm too lazy to exercise so I will probably have to live with that!

Thanks Johnny . That's brilliant- 10 inches! You must feel so much better for it. smile
I'm pretty sure I will always have the mummy tummy too, with all the excess skin and saggy belly. Bleargh! grin

I've always worried about my big bum - and now it really is that big...

28" down from 30 after taking up excercise again.
I'd like it to be 27".

28" waist - 45" hips - thighs off the scale .. I redefine the pear shape - am more of a pyramid... weight comes off my waist first making me look even more ridiculous..

Weirdly muriel I didn't really feel fat, I was hourglassy and think I carried it off ok (or maybe I deluded myself.) Then I saw a bad photo with five chins and I weighed and measured myself and realised I was obese. Thanks to the help of the lovely mumsnetters on the now or never threads I lost 4 stone and now I do feel a million times better.

That said I'm never really sure where to measure, I measured round my belly button but my belly is fatter again than that sad
