Waist to height ratio

The waist to height and waist to hips ratios are apparently better future indicators of health issues than the media friendly BMI. They also have the advantage that the only thing you need is a tape measure - which is a lot cheaper than an accurate weight scale.

My weight continues to melt away but more importantly my waist has started to shrink. While my weight has come down at an even 750 g per week rate, until now my waist line hasn't changed much. This morning's weigh in showed the largest waist shrinkage so far. While I can now wear one size smaller trousers, I've still got a long way to go to get to a health ratio.
