Default Measurement Thread

I know some of us lose inches faster than weight. I think a measurement thread is very useful so that we realize that is another tool we can use to keep up with progress.

I take my measurements TIGHT. So that way I can't add to it, so here they are:

top of hips, around pooch-42"
waist at bend-33"
waist at belly button-36"
rib cage-33"
Right thigh bent-22"
right calf-14"
Rt arm-12 3/4"
hips together-39"
neck-13 1/4"
Left wrist-6 1/4" (medium body frame)

I'm going to update in 2 weeks. Hope we see some progress!

I'm about done with the weight loss portion of my journey, so seeing the number go down on the scale isn't going to be as useful as measure of progress anymore. I plan to focus more on increasing strength & muscle soon, so I think measurements might be a useful tool for seeing progress on that front.

Starting measurements:

Neck - 12 1/4 in
Bust - 35 1/2 in
Underbust - 32 in
Waist - 27 in
Hips - 35 1/2 in
Right upper arm - 10 1/4 in
Right forearm - 9 in
Right thigh - 21 in
Right calf - 14 1/4 in

I probably won't check them again for about a month, as starting a week from now I have to take 2 weeks off from exercise for some medical stuff.

Edit: Weird, my underbust is BIGGER than it was a month or so ago.

way to go chickadee, that might be from your muscles growing. I do expect my measurements to get bigger in my arms and legs, before they start to go down. I wish my waist would just melt away, but as I build muscle under the fat, it also might expand before it goes down.

jen, that definitely happened to my upper arms - they got larger at first, and then started getting smaller again after another couple months.

I hope my legs don't get any bigger though, gah!! That's the last thing I need, lol.

yes, Laif, I remember you doing so, I think 2 weeks is ok, but 4 weeks would be the clincher.

chick, your legs look very muscular in your pic!

Thank you, but they're mostly just fat and skin with some muscle underneath! The compression pants seem to shape thing up a bit.

i have to measure my waist in 2 areas, at the belly button at at the actual bend in my waist, because the bend area is actually pretty cute, but when you go down further--aye! That is where my belly fat (baby/stress fat) rests.

Don't worry thunda, we are on the journey to tiny waists!

thanks thunda,

well, it's time to re-measure. I know I need to be patient with the process. I am losing inches WHERE IT COUNTS. Just like I thought some places went up, though.

top of hips, around pooch-42"------->wk 2 40"
waist at bend------------33--------------->32"
waist at belly button-36"----------------->35"
rib cage-33"----------------------------->32.5"
Right thigh bent-22"--------------------->21.5"
right calf-14"--------------------------->14.5"
Rt arm-12 3/4"------------------------->11.25"
hips together-39"----------------------->38.5"
neck-13 1/4"--------------------------->13.25"
Left wrist-6 1/4" (medium body frame)--->6.1"

not sure how my bony wrists got any skinnier, but I guess I did lose .1" from them.
