I always forget. Did it once and haven't done it since. Plan to this weekend after 15 days of exercise.

I measure once every two weeks at the same time every morning, so that all the conditions are the same.

I don't measure. What's important to me is looking and feeling great, no matter how many inches I have.

I measure weekly on my weigh-in day. It's a great motivator to see inches coming off.

Since I'm maintaining, not losing, only about once a year...

Never. I can tell when my clothes get loose and the scale tells me the rest. Also, with the exception of my waist, I never feel I have the tape measure in the same place each time. Don't like to measure.

I feel it is best to always measure

This is the first time (while on a diet) that I've measured. I did my second set of measurements a month after the first. I still weigh myself almost daily, it's the one measure that is seen the fastest.

About twice a year. Use my clothes getting bigger as a measure.

I do it once/month. I know SP recommends once/week, but I find that it is too easy to get fluctuations just from things like posture, holding the tape a certain way, etc. Once/month is much more reliable for me. And my measurements don't change very quickly. The amount one needs to lose to see a change on the tape measure does take me about a month!!

I do: neck, bicep, forearm, bust, natural waist, hip, thigh, calf.

Usually whenever I do an official weigh-in. I weigh twice a week, but I typically only track it weekly or monthly. I measure waist, hips, love handles, and neck each time I track just to see if I am losing inches rather than pounds or both

I did once. I will when spring gets here and I can get back into my routine. I do not rely on scales for loss, I try on clothes. It is more fun.

I haven't measured in a while, I have to start doing that and not relying on the scale as much
