I am a nice round person :D .  I recently enjoyed the benefits of a weightloss program.  Accepting money from the weigthloss company, I am going to be one of those handsome people that show you how much weight they have loss by pulling on their waistbands to indicate the fat they used to have.  My belt when looped in its old position is now an extra 5 inches to big.  When i get on camera and hold my waistband out (with my belt in its old position) how far will it extend from my body?

I guess we can assume by "round person" that your waistline approximates a circle. ^_^

 

We need to know the original or final size.

RG's answer is the correct one if you reduced down to a zero waist.

 

I'm looking at this problem assuming you started out as *gasp* 40" waistline..

the distance is determinate with given facts if you consider a different kind of a belt.  Say the belt is a girdle or metal hoop which does not stretch to form a tangent with your shrunk circumference but stays a larger circle touching your current circumference behind. tried to attach a picture in the file

I would had assumed the first option of belts because the belt still would have to go through the loops.
