Dieting Tip

Inch Your Waist Away

By

Document Your Waist Measurement

Healing Lesson of the Day

<previous> 01/02 <next>
When the bathroom scales indicate a weight loss plateau don't be discouraged. Reach for a tape measure. It will likely give you encouragement to stay on track with your diet plan. Diet plateaus are often times when you will notice your clothes feeling looser. Don't let the bathroom scales tell the whole story. The tape measure never lies.

Document your pre-diet inch measurements as well as your starting weight before you begin your new diet. To calculate your total inch losses measure your breasts, waist, hips, thighs, and biceps.
