What size waist are you

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

5'10", (currently) 178lbs, 31" waist. I'm down from the high 190's this time last year and hope to be down to the low 160's by the end of summer this year. At that point I hope to once again have a comfortable 30" waist.

according to doctor somebody on tv, an old fashioned tape measure around the waist at your belly button is the truer measure....

that said, my jeans are 34...

And that's also why my wife threatens me every time I start getting in shape--or into a smaller shape. It took me some time to convince her that no matter how much I ride I'll never be as small as a pro rider.

I made the mistake of buying jeans when I had taken 6 months off of training and drank lots of beer. Then I began riding again and lost about 20 lbs in a couple months (my normal weight anyway) and now my only pair of jeans fit me like a sack of potatoes.

6'0", 172 lbs, wear W31 or sometimes W30 depending on brand. No weight issues, I'm pretty happy with my appearance.

5 ft. 5 in., 140-145lbs, 29-30" pants waist. 30 is a touch too big, and 29 just about right.

6'1" 182, 33" waist. I dropped 40lbs a couple of years ago, but my waist only went from 36" to 33". It seems like I started losing fat from my head and it worked it's way down from there, leaving the waist for last. (No funny comments about the fat head please) So now I have a skinny face, a pencil neck, no chest, and still have a (much smaller) gut. Maybe this year will be the year for seeing my abs again. I used to be a 28" waist when I rode/raced a lot.

Reading the stats on this group makes one think of bird chests. Well maybe excluding Tom.

Ergs are awesome, but after actually rowing on the water they feel annoying. It's like biking in the open and then getting on the machine. Feeling is completely different. That being said, rowing is amazing. The feeling of being out on the water is absolutely awesome.

Edit:
I wear a 30 waist, but it's actually around a 28ish. I use a belt to tighten it up a LOT. I bought pants when I weighed more and have had no reason to buy any more since haha.
I'm 5'10.5 last I checked, and I weigh about 148ish.
