Iterations usually refers to the repetition of a series of operations.

Hmm, I was thinking of the process of matching "the thing quantified" once as the series of operations being repeated. But I don't have a good name for "the thing quantified". I agree that 'iterations' isn't ideal, but I'm not sure what would be better.

I'm not trying to be overly critical or anything.

Please, do be. :)

    I suggest "repetitions".

    We're not really tightening our belts, it just feels that way because we're getting fatter.
      Or perhaps "instances".
