Hi everyone!

I have been taking my measurements since I began a few weeks ago and it's an overall downward trend, but I am very skeptical of my measuring skills and worry that I am not measuring correctly rather than actually losing inches. Anyway, I checked my hip measurement and I have gone UP in inches no matter how measure. The other measurements until today were going down. I have now taken 5 measurements and here arey numbers from begin to now: 42-5/8", 41", 41", 41-1/2", 43". What the heck? I literally couldn't pull that tape any tighter! The only thing I can think is TOM which is coming today or tomorrow...but is that logical? Anyone else experience this?

Just to add, I always measure with no clothes so I know that can't be it. I measure upper arm, lower arm, thigh, calf, waist, and hips each time and use freckles on my body to make sure I always check the same place.

with TOM that is totally logical. bad time to measure. various things swell up from the hormone soup sloshing around your bod. give it a week.
I do measurements at spots I can really verify, like at the navel, pubic bone, mid bust and tight up under bust and under armpits as high as possible. but never right around TOM.
In fact, I'm just past the danger zone and going to do my measurements in the morning.

:D Whew! That makes sense and makes me feel better! I am glad it isn't just me!
