I usually measure my waist, hips and sometimes my thighs. There is a Monthly Measurement forum you can post your measurements in if you'd like to report that in every month.
The weight ticker can be found on your spark page, you'll need to edit your spark page, scroll a little towards the bottom and there you'll find the option to show the ticker and you'll be able to pick what you'd like.
Glad to have you on board!!! Good luck with your journey!
~You can say "I can do it" or you can say "I can't do it". Either way you're going to be right.
Hi there. New to the whole sparkspeople thing as well as online support for weight loss. This forum really appeals to me to give me a sounding board to keep my goals in focus! I've started officially tonight. My goal is to lose 58lbs. Just curious do you ladies take your measurements and if so what areas do you measure? Just the waist?
My current stats: 5' 3" 208 lbs (how do ya'll get the cool scale at the bottom of the post?) 42.5" waist
I looked on weight watchers for a reference on healthy weight for my height...They suggested from 117 to 149lbs. I'm naturally curvy so will go for the higher end and hope to achieve 149lbs by years end losing 3lbs a week to start off. So 24 lbs by April. Sounds like a huge number.
Add more cardio and weight training to my activity Remove excessive processed carbs (white flour, sugars, etc) from my diet Plan a fresh veggie garden for summer Lose 24 lbs.
