Take Your Measurements

This Sparked Me!

Take your measurements at the beginning of your weight loss journey. On the weeks you're not losing weight check your measurements again. Chances are that you may not have lost weight but you may have lost inches.

I really regret not taking my measurements. I know I've lost inches but I always wonder how much I've lost.

    Measurements, inspired me more than anything. Just being able to get into something I knew I could not wear before was AWESOME!

    Ten minutes before I read this, I checked the last measurements I recorded on SP (several wks ago) & subtracted them from the starting ones. I've lost 11 in. from my hips, 10 from my waist, 4.25 from my thigh (should I count 8.5 for 2 thighs?) and 2.75 from each arm. I rarely throw anything out (bad habit) but I went through my 5-year-old clothes, then 10 and 20 (shoulder pads and all) and finally went out to buy a few new clothes last wk. (great bargains at K-Mart & Kohl's.) I used to take size 20W pants, now 14 is a little big, but 12 is still too small. I used to buy 3X tops, Now XL fit ---which is one size lower than 1X.

    This is a good idea. My sister and I are planning to take our 'before' pictures tomorrow. I think I'll take a tape measure and also record our before measurements. Thanks for this!

    Thanks for the reminder. I started about 3 weeks ago and I have not done my measurements yet.
