Default What body parts do you measure?

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!

Height: 5'2"

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)

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.
