[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
You know what I don't understand, people who talk about the number of inches/centimetres they have lost. It's like if I measure myself at 3 points - breast, waist and hips, for example, and my hypothetical dieting identical twin measures herself at six points then on paper she could have lost double the centimetres I have although our weight loss is exactly the same.
Am I missing something here? Is there some standardise way to measure yourself? Standard measure points or something? I definitely thinking that measuring yourself is the way to go, it's just when i see someone has lost 50 cm all over, I don't know what that means.
I measure myself a lot of different points.
Thanks Stacey :)
I measure in the same places as Stacey. It was on a sheet handed to me once upon a time. I think the measurements for me have been more of a motivational factor as opposed to a size thing because I can't very well say "Ooh I've lost 8cm off my calf - now I'm a size 16" LOL Doesn't work that way (dammit!)
