I was just wondering what body parts (or if any) that others are measuring for weight loss. Am I the only one who measures more than the standard: bust/waist/hip?

I seem to measure everything:
Neck
A-A (which I call arm pit to arm pit lol-above bust)
Upper Arm
Elbow
Wrist
Bust
Waist
Belly
Hip
Upper Thigh
Above Knee
Knee
Calf
Ankle

Yup, that's 14. Last month, I lost 12.5 inches, but that was all over. Some areas surprised me, like my neck and ankle (each .25 loss).

I measure:

Arms
Bust
Waist
Hips
Thighs

Of those, the only two I am supremely interested in seeing shrink are the arms and waist, but it's nice to see the differences from where I started.

The more measurements the merrier if it helps you out!

Neck (never changes, doesn't need to change - don't know why I measure)
Upper arm (never changes, wish it would - just an inch or two)
Chest (really hard to measure accurately, doesn't really change b/c I'm breastfeeding at the moment)
Waist (most narrow part of waist - one of the most important to me)
Belly (thickest part of torso - I see the most results here)
Hips (don't see much change here, but I don't mind)
Thigh (at the widest part - I usually see good results here)
Calf (never changes, solid muscle)

I measure:
neck
bust
chest
upper arm
smallest part of my waist
1" above belly button
1" below belly button
hips
widest part of thigh
widest part of calf

I've seen changes in all of these areas over the past few months - the biggest changes are in all my waist/belly measurements, hips, and thighs.

My waist and my hips. I should start measuring my thighs. I used to measure my bust but watching that number go down didn't make me happy ;)

Thanks guys! My thing now is trying to figure out around what I want my measurements to be at goal-not a perfect number just an estimate so I have something to work towards.
