Default Measurements-Is it normal?

Is it normal to have larger measurements on one side of your body than the other (bicep, thigh, knee)? From a 1/2 inch (biceps and thighs) to 1 1/2 inches (knee). Left side is larger than right and I am right handed (if that matters). I think it's very odd but don't know if I should be alarmed.

I don't know. I find I've been losing weight very unevenly. For example, for several weeks my breasts were two different cup sizes. They've mostly evened out as I've lost more weight.

Yes, though typically the dominant side is larger. It's like your fingers. Have you ever noticed your fingers on the dominant hand are a larger ring size?

My non-dominant side is larger too, but apparently that's not the norm.

Yes, it's normal. When I measure, I measure both sides of everything.

My entire right side (dominant) is bigger than my left - breast, back fat, thigh, arm . . . I don't worry about it too much, it's always been that way, and I didn't really pay attention to it until I was taking my measurements regularly.

It's normal. My right thigh is always 1" bigger around than my left. My left calf is always bigger than my right (from driving with a clutch, probably). It's whatever side is dominant for whatever activities you do, I think.
