We need to change our thinking - I have a challenge for everyone here!

Why is it I NEVER, NEVER see people complain that they're not losing inches AND the scales not going down?

WHY: Because MANY people approach weightloss with only one measurement in mind. THE SCALE!

I ALWAYS see people complain that they're not losing scale weight.

PLEASE.... One thing all of us need to start learning is that weightloss should not be measured only by pounds lost on the scale.

I'd like to challenge everyone here to take your measurments! It take 5 mins. if that to get THREE important measurements!! Chest at largest point, waist at the navel and hips at largest point.

I'd like to challenge everyone here to not complain in the community or your groups about the scale being stuck or going up unless you have been taking your measurements too! We can't help you if we don't know what's truly going on.

Start approaching your weightloss journey differently....

hrm... scale didn't move today? Let's see what my inches did!

I'd like to know how a pretty overweight woman with large boobs that are kinda saggy (the difference between measuring with a bra on and without is a few iches, who has the rolls of fat in the midriff area.....HOW are you supposed to measure? in between the fat rolls?? I'm too dang fat to even measure.

To the above poster...

Even large women can take their measurments and get a better idea of the losing that's really going on.

Keep your clothes on and measure over clothes. It is possible to still get your measurments.

We have adults that dance at our dance studio that are fairly large - we still get their measurements over their clothes for dance costume fittings and you can still see a difference when they've lost inches as well.

Nothing's impossible.

Take your chest measurements with your bra on. Measure at the band and measure at the fullest part of the breast. This is how you're measured when you are measured for a bra.

I measure every month now and wish I would've started at the beginning of my weight loss journey. It has taught me to not put so much into what the scale says. That there are other ways to measure success. When it comes down to it, I'd rather be losing inches and toning than just lose fat and still be flabby.

I just want to say thank you for posting this. I am one of those people that are always looking at the scale and saying "I don't see any improvement". I have taken my measurements and I just need to change my mindset. Thanks!

That's weird...

Are you sure you haven't dropped a size? I thought the same until I remembered how snug the size I was wearing was when I first tried it on in the store. For me, a roomy 14 was snug...now a regular 14 fits and is a little loose, even. :)
I could never fit in ANY 12, roomy or not, so I know when I drop a couple more pounds, I can fit into a snug 12, but it will be a major victory. Try on the pants you wear now in a smaller size, in the same store you go them. I'll bet they fit!

Are you lifting weights and exercising? That is what will really help with the inches.

yes, you do lose inches

to the first poster: yes, you're right. the inches just come off even if the weight has plateaued (mine has). but from a 39 waist, i'm now down to 33 (weight 172 to 140). don't get too bothered about the scale. read it once a week max. do your clothes fit/sag? that's the real measure. why? if you exercise, your muscles build up. and muscles are more dense than flab.

I haven't been measuring, but I also take my scale weight with a grain of salt.

I can visibly see the muscles in my legs starting to firm up, but the scale is not really moving. I attribute this to the fact that I'm currently in the "re-distribution" stage.

I tend to build muscle quickly, so I'm going more by how my clothes fit than by the actual weight for now... :-)

Thank you.

You are so right. I never thought to do it that way. I just depended too much on the scale. I have to go out and buy a flexible tape measure tommorrow at the art store but I just tried putting on a shirt that I bought about a year ago and i bought the wrong size and just never took it back. Now I put it on and it fits great. it used to be tight around my stomache and now, it hangs very nicly. I just sort of forgot that building muscle actually weighs more than fat does, so even though I am not loosing weight, doesnt mean that I am not loosing size. Thank you.
