I haven't been measuring but I will do it after reading this article. Report
I need to do this. I have gained 10 pounds in the past few months. My three adult children and others told me I had lost too much weight and was too thin so I thought I should gain a few pounds back. I am up one size in jeans, went from a size 8 to 10. I feel comfortable at this weight but need to get back to more strength training. Report
Taking my measurements is on my TO DO LIST. I know from the difference in the way my clothes fit, that my measurements are changing. Having the exact figures in front of me to realize the CHANGE, would be a motivator and help me to move forward. GREAT ARTICLE!!!! Report
Are the measurements supposed to be metric or imperial? Report
Thanks Report
Great tips! Thank you! Report
thanks the nurse at my doctors office does mine as part of my record Report
I take my waist & hip measurements. I do not take the remaining. I track both every month on Spark People. I have lost over 40 pounds & my bust measurement has not changed at all. Most of the weight loss was in my hip & waist area, the area also where I gained it . It would be too difficult to measure everything else accurately. I can see my other measurements have gone slightly. My waist measurement is 10 inches less. Report
I don't take all those measurements, but I do take some. Inches lost helps me stay focused more on becoming healthy rather than the number on the scale. Report
Good information. This is something I have avoided so far. Report
I will need to do this! Report
Just signed up for Premium. I took my measurements, but I don't see one for chest measurements; only waist, hips, thighs and upper arm. Is that right? Thanks! Report
