Post Waist measurement for health?
I seem to remember that the ideal for a woman is like 0.8/0.7...what if you have really developed obliques, though? Would the altered waist to hip ratio raise a false red flag if you ever underwent some kind of health test?

Yeah, I've seen it vary between 0.7 and 0.8 typically. As a comparison, the woman in this shot has a WHR of 0.68

The man in this image has a WHR of roughly 0.85

So unless your obliques are ridiculously huge and you have the hips of a 9 year old boy I don't think you have much to worry about as it will take a great deal to throw off the ration enough to become troublesome.

FYI, the measurements are taken at the narrowest part of the waist and the widest part of the hips - around the 'saddle bag' area as illustrated below:

Yeah about the 'narrowest part of the waist' thing...as you can see from my avatar, I don't have much of one!
