Umm hi. I thought it would be a pretty cool idea to include inches lost in a ticker for our profiles and forum posts, and also for status updates, i.e: "Bob has lost 2 (waist? or total?) inches(or centimeters or something?) since his last measurement!" I realize that we can review our previous measurements personally, and MFP has a very good system of keeping them but I think that this would be a clever little addition considering as we lost pounds, we lose inches too! We should be able to let our buddies know about our progress in those terms too!

I'm sure that lots of MFP users have a pretty slow weight loss, but they have decent drops in measurements. I myself have only lost 5 lbs since I've started tracking but I've lost over 10 inches around my body. I also think it's very important not to "obsess" over the scale, as quite a few people do, then they give up without realizing the importance of measurements! I also know some people that don't even weigh themselves anymore because the measuring tape brings a much more clearer and accurate recording of fat loss.

Soo.. yeah. What do you guys think? smile heart

I will let everyone know about my measurements....when I do not measure like my linebacker hubs. HA! Seriously, though...this is a FABULOUS idea, and MFP should do it!!

Been wishing for something like this for a long time!

I agree!

I think this is a great idea. A lot of people new to this don't even know to keep track of measurements (this was me at one time) and sometimes it can keep you going when the scale has stalled.

Exactly! I probably would have quit a long time ago if it wasn't for my measurements!

Only if it is site specific. Losing an inch from your waist is much different than losing an inch when combining 5 site measurements.

I suggested the same thing awhile back. not eveyone goes by pounds. you seem a lot like I am wanting to know how many inches I lost thus far.

Which could easily be fitted into a ticker! 5 little lines, no biggie! :)

This is a great idea! I am very close to my goal weight, so losing pounds isn't all that important to me right now, but inches are!
