    Took my primary measurements a few days ago and I am a total of 22.5 inches smaller than I was when I first recorded them in February. Also my BMI has dropped by 7.4. Still in the obese range but almost half way to reaching the healthy BMI range.

    What are primary measurements? I see people mention a total number of inchds all the time but no one ever shares what they measured.
    Great job though!

    I think probably:
    • Chest
    • Waist
    • Hips

    I don't measure that often, but I measure:
    • Chest
    • Girth at navel
    • Waist (I'm never exactly sure where that is, so navel is always the same place)
    • Buttocks
    • Neck
    • Quad
    • Unflexed bicep
    • Flexed bicep

    You can use waist and hip to get some obesity estimates by using a waist:height ratio or a waist:hip ratio.

    Today is my one-year anniversary of continuous logging into MFP! While I have been on and off the site for years, this is the longest stretch of logging that I have ever done.

    The results of that effort:
    * I've lost 30 pounds and have been in successful maintenance for about 2 months.
    * I've gone from not being able to use my elliptical for more than 20 minutes without hurting my knee to now going about 45-60 min, 4x per week (and I'm faster!).

    Keep going everyone! :smile:

    I'm proud of you @dralicephd !!!!

    I measure my bust, waist, hips, thighs and biceps. Here is the breakdown for me:
    Bust -5
    Waist -5
    Hips -6.5
    Thighs -2 each
    Biceps -1 each
