Where is my waist!

Feeling good today as I started to clear out clothes that are too big for me. Sorting out the trousers and checking the waist measurement on them I also checked my "waist" measurement, 43 inches, not too bad, then my OH said "that is not your waist, I can see your waist!" I looked in the mirror and - I could see my waist, apparently it had been hiding somewhere between my ribs and my belly button :-) So I measured there and low and behold it was 42 inches! Wow I lost 1 inch in seconds :-) So, feeling even better now :-) Also getting seriously short of trousers that fit me !

Looking forward to seeing the photo of a new thin you holding a gi-normous pair of trousers when you get to target!  You must keep one pair just for that...?

Great, I've just had to buy some new trousers as |I was starting to look ridiculous in a 36/38 waist when I need a 32!

Just goes to show how fat I've always been, I thought that my belly button was my waist! I didn't realise there was an alternative! :o

Well done you for finding yours John and for it being an inch smaller! :)

I'm off to see if I can find a waist that's an inch smaller now! ;)
