Picture Perfect Measurements



In order to remember what part of my midsection that I measured as my waist, I started taking pics of the exact locations of my body parts. Given that my body has lots of curves and rolls in the wrong places, taking measurements was very hard! Where is a waist on a 250+ woman with rolls on top of rolls? By taking pics of what I considered my waist at the time of my measurements, I figured out how to make monthly comparisons. Little things like this make a BIG difference with motivation!!

    I like this - I don't have a lot of rolls, but after checking my measurements for the 1st time since i joined, A lot of my measurements increased even though my clothes fit better - I think/hope I just measured at a different place - by KM9165
