I think for that you have to measure round your largest part I'm too scared to do that ha ha what a wuss.

Just measured myself and realised that what ought to be my waist seems miles too high! I wanted to do that waist:hip ratio thing, that predictor of heart attack...!

Are you me? Yeah my waist is under my boobs I think your narrowest part is waist. I'm a shorty though.

As I've lot weight, my 'waist' has got higher and higher, assuming it's my narrowest part! Currently it's about 4" below my bra line! i.e. a good 5" above my navel! And way above any natural clothing waist line, even in my 1980's jeans! grin

Do you pick a fixed point, like your navel, and measure that? Or should it be your narrowest point even if that changes?

Ditto hips- is that your widest part? That's remained pretty stable!
