What is your waist size?

From this article: http://health.usnews.com/usnews/heal...28/28waist.htm

The average American waistline is expanding. In fact, it has never been bigger. Federal health surveys show that over the past four decades, the mean waist size for men has grown from 35 inches to 39 inches; for women, from 30 inches to 37 inches. T
39"?!?! I know I'm short but 39" seems ridiculous.

31". I can't imagine what 39" feels like, but I hope I realize what's happening and stop before I get there.....

Some of my pants are 29", but most are 30", especially the jeans. So I voted 30", which means I'm grouped with the fatsos who are 32".

I just got back down to 40" after peaking at 43". I hope to be down to 36" by this time next year.

You are all a bunch of spindly little girly men 30" waist

Where is the normal over 6'3" crowd that posts here?

Are you all thin as a rail even though you are tall?
