Since I don't know when I will next see a set of scales, I took my measurements this morning. I wanted to have some way to track my progress between weigh-ins. I have never tracked inches for one reason: I really don't know the correct way to measure myself. It always seems that I could measure myself today, and then repeat it again tomorrow and get a completely different set of numbers. And now I don't know what to do about the sagging skin? Do Ieave the tape loose around the skin, or pull it tight? And what about the bust measurement?? With a supportive bra, a sports bra, or no bra at all? Because that will produce 3 very different measurements!
For the time being I have left the extra skin to hang loose and measured around it, and I used a sports bra while measuring my bust.
I'm also wondering if its going to be possible to track my foods, since the food I eat here in Africa is pretty different from the standard american diet. I know I'm not going to find indigenous vegetables, ugali or wimbi porridge on the list. I'm going to have to see if I can find "close enough" substitutes without spending too much time on here.
