Many of us rely on the scale to measure our weight-loss progress, but weight alone can be deceiving. The number on the scale can't differentiate between muscle, fat, water and tisuue. Taking your measurements can be better of progress.
How To Measure Up Your Body
- Start with your cloth tape measure.
- Stand tall and breath normally, without hold in your stomach in.
- Wear fitted clothing - so you're measuring your body not fabric.
- Pull the tape snugly across your body - but don't press into the skin.
- Measure upper arm at the largest point above the elbow.
- Measure chest at its broadest point.
- Measure waist at its smallest point.
- Measure hips and thights where they are largest.
- Record your neasurements in the space below.
- Measure yourself once a week during the first 30 days, then once a month after that.
