Since I've started bicycling at the beginning of the year, I've dropped about 3 inches off my waist along with 15 to 20 pounds. I don't know the exact numbers, but I know my stomach doesn't jiggle when I go up and down the stairs anymore.
Anyhow, I have a hell of a time finding pants that fit me now. My waist is 30.5 now, but I still have to buy size 32 jeans in relaxed or loose fit otherwise the leg opening will be too small. Believe me, I'm not trying to get into the whole skin tight jeans thing. Depending on the manufacturer sometimes even 32 doesn't fit at all. Just the other day I tried a pair of 32 relaxed jeans and they were skin tight -- I could barely move -- and yet the waist was too big.
At the same time, I don't like how baggy "loose fit" pants tend to be towards the bottom of the leg.
Massive thighs an unintended side effect of bicycling?
