Hi, I was wondering what your individual correlations between measurements and weight are.
For people who work out, measurements and weight don't correlate strongly, I know, because of changing degrees of muscle tone/mass. But I don't work out and have noticed that, for example, whenever I weigh 135, my hips are exactly 38 1/4 inches. When I weigh 130, they are 37 3/4. When I'm 140, they're 39. So it looks like in my median weight range, ten pounds corresponds to 1.25 inches of hips.
I don't bother measuring my waist during dieting because its size varies dramatically (by up to 2 inches) depending on whether I ate or drank anything, the time of day, or whether I need to go to the bathroom. But my hips don't lie, lol. I can always tell how much I weigh, with a 2 lb margin of error, just by measuring my hips, and vice versa.
Please share your own experiences with this.
