Default Measurements - Could this be right?

On 4/22 I entered my measurements on Fitday. I didn't measure again until today. I lost 1 inch in my waist and on my bicep and supposedly 3.5 inches on my chest, 3 inches on my hips. I have only lost 17 pounds- could this be right? I am pretty sure I have the tape measure in the same position.

Could be totally right. Where do you think the weight came off from? I lost 4 inches in my waist a couple months ago but only 5 pounds... haha...

I think it may very well be right. I have two bras I am wearing comfortably now that I couldn't wear for a couple of years. My pants are looser in the hip/thigh/butt area but only slightly more comfortable in waist. I wish it would come off the waist too - I don't want a pot belly! LOL

Sounds right to me... I lost only four-six pounds in the last month, but my monthly measurement shows three inches off my hips. It's gotta disappear from somewhere.

Fat and butter have about the same density. Imagine 17 1-lb boxes of butter lined up on your kitchen counter. That's how much you've lost.

Sounds right to me! I have only lost 16 pounds but 4 inches off my waist. Went from a 55 (actually could have been bigger didn't measure first 2 weeks) to a 51. Sometimes a bit under 51 but been at 51 now for a full week.
