How Do I Measure Progress On My Weight Loss Journey?

Welcome to the 1st day of the 30 days on the Kickstarter Curves Challenge. 

In the morning, check in by commenting below with a current pic, measurements, and your weight. And re-state what your habits are for the challenge. 

In the evening, check in by commenting below how you did for the day with your habits and what you’re grateful for. 

I’ve noticed in the Facebook support group that many use the scale as the sole indicator of progress. 

Relying on the scale as the major way to know you’re progressing can be a way to sabotage your progress. You are likely progressing when you’re following you meal plan and working out. The scale doesn’t tell you but other factors can if you focus on those things. 

We are going for healthy weight loss, not just weight loss. And there are many ways to measure true progress on your journey. 

What are some ways? 

  • Circumference measurements
  • Before and after pics
  • How your clothes are fitting
  • How you are physically moving
  • How you feel in your body
  • Your energy levels
  • The kinds of foods your body craves
  • Bodyfat %

All of the above elements need to be factored in to determine progress. 

I really love seeing progress based on circumference measurements. When the scale doesn’t budge, and I’m on point with my meal plan and workouts I know that my body is transforming and I can check using my trusty measuring tape. 

Here are the sites that I measure for my clients. (You don’t have to do this. It’s just one way to do it.) You can measure fewer sites on your body. 

  • Wrist
  • Neck
  • Upper Arm (Left and Right)
  • Forearm (Left and Right)
  • Shoulders (Around)
  • Upper Chest
  • Mid Chest
  • Below Chest (Ribs)
  • Waist
  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Thighs (Left and Right) 
  • Upper Knee (Left and Right)
  • Calves (Left and Right)

Again, Welcome to your first day of the Kickstarter Curves Challenge. 

Consistency is key. 

And again, here are the instructions for your 1st day. 

In the morning, check in by commenting below with a current pic, measurements, and your weight. And re-state what your habits are for the challenge. 

In the evening, check in by commenting below how you did for the day with your habits and what you’re grateful for.
