The importance of taking measurements

Monday, December 05, 2011

Although I've been losing weight week after week, I had a couple of very slow weeks on the scale. And even though I typically only take my measurements once a month, I was curious where things might be irregardless of my slow weeks on the scale. So I took my measurements this morning, which is right around the two week mark since my last measurements and I was absolutely thrilled to see that I had a combined loss of 2 1/4" in the last two weeks!!! emoticon

This just reminded me one more time how important it is to take measurements - because even if the scale isn't moving much, our measurements might be. Don't let the scale get you down when you might still have something fabulous to celebrate, like lost inches!!

So I pose this question to you ... do YOU take your measurements on a regular basis?

    Um, no! I should but I've been putting it off since I gained some weight back - which is probably all the more reason I should just do it. Too many times I end up frustrated because the scale isn't "showing me" what I want it to. That's when I end up in trouble.
    Congrats on the great loss!! That is FABULOUS!!!!
