HOW TO MEASURE YOUR PROGRESS
Use a non-stretchable tape. Make sure the tape measure is level around your body and parallel
to the floor. Keep tape close to your skin without depressing it.
What to measure:
Bust- Measure all the way around your bust and back on the line of your nipples.
Chest: Measure directly under your breasts, as high up as possible.
Waist: Measure at its narrowest point width-wise, usually just above the navel.
Hips: Measure around the widest part of the hipbones.
Midway: Measure midway between the widest part of your hips and our waist.
Thighs: Measure around fullest part of upper leg while standing
Knees: Measure immediately above the knee.
Calves: Measure around fullest part.
Upper arm: Measure above your elbows – around the fullest part.
Forearms: Measure below your elbows – around the fullest part.
Re-measure yourself every couple of weeks and record your measurements, so that you can chart your progress. This is a great motivator! It can be discouraging to see your measurements at the start of the program, but once you begin to see results, the feeling of accomplishment is incredible. Even if you have already commenced your program, it is not too late to get measuring (body fat percentage or body measurements), as it is wonderful and rewarding to watch your body continue to change.
