I did all the measuring stuff too, I loved it. When we are not losing pounds we are usually losing inches. This kept life in some what of a perspective when the scale stopped moving during stalls. I would say I did this almost every month and kept track.
I measured: Neck,upper chest (just under arm pits),middle chest,rib area,belly button area,hips,upper arm,lower arm,wrists,thighs,calves and ankles.
I know that sounds like a lot of work to people who are not doing it,but again it is one more tool in our tool box that will show us results.
At the end of 2 yrs I added up total inches lost and totals on each clothing size lost. What awesome numbers.
Great for you taking charge of what goes into your tool box or should I say what isn't thee anymore LOL
