PROPER MEASURING!! Dang it! I havent been doing it 100% correct…. [Belina's HCG Journey]

Well folks, here’s a chart on the proper way of measuring, I’ve been doing mine almost right. Except I did my waist right across my belly botton and my hips were measured too high so I’m going to take proper measurements today. This is kinda depressing beacause now how do I calculate my inches lost since the beginning?

But that’s ok I’m stuck on 212 pounds and can’t seem to get it to go down again.Might be all the stress we have been going through financially, but I’m not going to freak out or give up! It will kick in again! That scale WILL start moving down again! Speaking of the scale, my hubby thinks we should get a better one, he thinks its off. Lol I don’t know, maybe next payday.

I hope the chart helps!!

Keep On Keeping on!

Instructions

The tape should be pulled to where it is lying flat against the skin all the way around.  your goal with body tape measurements is consistency.

Take them the same every time you take them and you will get an accurate view of your progress with each body part.

Below and pictured to the right is a list of suggested sites to regularly measure.

Neck - Standing, measure your neck at its largest girth, right over the Adam’s apple.

Shoulder – Standing, can either be measured as a straight line from the largest points on each shoulder across the chest or as a girth measurement all the way around the body.

Bicep - Measure at its largest girth, can be taken relaxed with arms at side, relaxed with arm bent, flexed with arm bent or all three.

Chest - Standing, measure with breath out just above the nipple.

Waist - Standing, measure at the narrowest point or at the midway point between the top of the hip bone and the bottom of the rib cage.

Hips - Measure at the largest girth, where the butt is protruding the greatest.

Thigh - Standing, measure at the largest girth, just below the butt.

Calf - Seated if you are measuring yourself or standing if you have a partner, measure at its largest girth.

    Good post Belina, a proper guide to measuring your body might be a good thing to include with purchase of the program in the future!

        I’m with Belina! It would be nice if there was something in the program that taught us how to do it! I didn’t know this either and I have been doing it wrong too… I know, for me, I had to go buy a scale and a food scale because when you are overweight you don’t want to know these things! But I didn’t think about HOW to measure.

    Thanks for the measuring hints gals. I am getting geared up to start the program. I wish there was information sent with the first order of drops, it is sometimes easier to have things printed out to reference later rather than look at the computer espically when it hurts the eyes.
