I broke out the measuring tape today. Thanks to the plateau, I’m feeling a bit down. I needed some good news and hoped this would do the trick.
I last measured myself at the end of April. I’m only 2 lbs lighter now, so I was very happy to discover I lost an inch off my arms and hips. Nice!
My Chest, waist and thighs remain the same.
I really need to take my measurements once a month. The scale is just a moment in time. Seeing my measurements go down is the best way to track my weight loss.
If you’re only relying on the scale to determine your success, I strongly urge you to take your measurements. It is too easy to get frustrated if the scale doesn’t move. I’m bouncing around by a few pounds in either direction for the last month or so. Yet, I still lost inches. That’s something the scale wouldn’t tell me.
Not sure how to take your measurements? Well here’s a little video to show you how it’s done.
