Oh wow! I just took my measurements and they were what I expected because I use to keep track of them during one of my previous weight loss times however they're still never fun to record. Taking my thigh measurement is particularly rough. Some years ago my waist was 26" now my thigh is 24", which means reasonably; many peoples' waists are the same size as my thigh. SMH. That just is not good or healthy. I cannot wait to lose inches along with the weight because often I believe inches and size are much more important than any number on the scale.

    Thank you :) and yes sometimes I will see these stories of transformation and the women will have lost 10lbs but then when you see their measurements its a totally different story! I did not know that stuff about the measurements although I do measure my thigh sitting on the edge of my chair.

    When I used to have a trainer I had to do measurements with him once a month to check my progress, (as well as weighing, a mile test, and strength test, talk about embarrassing, he's a bodybuilder my age!). Sometimes, I would only lose 3 lbs that month, but I'd like 8 inches everywhere!! Don't be discouraged, just measure once a month to check your progress, and even if you aren't happy with the scale, your total inches lost may be encouraging!! If you haven't already, look up how to properly measure and it's easier if someone helps you! Like, I didn't know that when you measure your thigh and calf you should be sitting on the edge of a chair! With my trainer we measured my neck, upper left arm, waist, hips (unfortunate because I have a big ol booty and it added unnecessary inches!), thigh, and calf. When I do my own I do: Neck, upper arm, wrist, bust, under my bust, waist, hips, butt, left thigh, calf, and ankle. Just measure at the same spot and same side every time and you should find yourself progressing:))
