Take your measurements!!!

This is another thing I am a big believer in, measure measure measure. Anyone who has ever tried to lose weight can tell you, sometimes the scale is a dick. You’re doing everything right and it just isn’t budging. Well, that’s ok if you measure too because you’ll see that it’s not all about that angry little number staring up at your sleepy, nude body every morning. That number doesn’t get to win, you want to be smaller! So measure! I say every 2 weeks or monthly is good. Granted it’s not an instant gratification thing, but it’ll help you through those times when the scale is not being nice to you. If you’re on plan and doing what you should be doing and the scale won’t budge, I can bet you’re still losing inches.

I started measuring at 243lbs, I really wish I had done it at 280lbs, but that would have been scary. Not really sure I even want to know that one, the 243 numbers are scary enough. Here’s what I got.

1/15/2011- 243lbs                    2/26/2012- 196lbs

Neck- 13 3/4″                            Neck- 12 3/4″
Belly- 47 1/2″                             Belly- 40″
Waist- 45 3/4″                            Waist- 40″
Hips- 54 1/2″                              Hips- 47″
Thighs- L 30 1/2″ R 32 1/4″       Thighs- L 26″ R 26 3/4″
Calves- L 18 3/4″ R 19 1/4″       Calves- L 16 3/4″ R 17″
Biceps- L 18″ R 18 1/4″             Biceps- L 15 1/2″ R 15 1/2″
Forearms- L 11 1/2″ R 11 3/4″   Forearms- L 10 1/2″ R 10 3/4″

That, my friends, is a grand total of 42 1/2″ gone. I’ll tell you, seeing those measurements continue to go down has gotten me through some dark days in a stall or two. So do it.

  1. Wow! Thanks for the great ideas. I think they will go very well with the program I’m using rthough the reallifeforhealth website. Their system is really easy to use and it does everything. They have 1000 s of different recipes to choose from and they help you build a fitness and nutrition plan that suits your goals. I’m happy that there’s no fad diets, pills, or required supplements. I’m really impressed with it, especially since they offer a free trial.
