I don't think that chart is fair, considering that me and Wifey are in our 50s. ;)

When I married her, she was 38-26-38. Twenty-seven years and four kids later, the numbers are...uh...rearranged a bit.

Women will be quick to point out that it's my fault too, of course. :hihi:

Wow thanks for making me feel worse today Dads. Wife comes in taller narrower and lighter. Me on the other hand....I am a week into my training for a 5k run which will hopefully bring me back towards average.

I have a hard time believing that a 39 inch waist is average. I'm 6'3'', 240 and wear a 40, which is larger than the majority of people that I know.

Neither of us is anywhere near those obscene averages for weight or waiste size. Americans = lazy slobs apparently. :shrug:

/used to be the home of the size zero woman; now getting size 1-2. :17:

These kind of statistics are more easily skewed on the high side than they ever could be on the low side.

It only takes one guy like this to take a dozen 34" waists and make the "average" 39.

If the average weight is 190 for men, how is the waist size 39? If you're 190, unless you're like 4ft tall, you shouldn't be sporting more than a 34-36 waist, it seems. :idunno:
