5'3", 135 lbs, 33" waist. (At 195 lbs, my waist was 41".) My hips are 38" right now, so I'm pretty thick waisted, IMO, but I find pants are often loose at the waist even when they are tight in the hip. I'm not sure what to make of that.
When I was 20 and 120 lbs, my waist was 26". After 2 pregnancies and years of being over weight, I'm not sure if 26" is even realistic for me any more.
Does anyone else find it hard to get a consistent waist measurement? I can easily pooch my stomach out or suck it in and make a difference of several inches. Even when I try to hold it in a neutral position, I find "neutral" can vary by more than an inch. I do still have a good amount of flab around my middle, so maybe that's the issue?
