Having a measure is the only way to truly know if you are progressing. Without taking your starting measurements, there is no way to know if you are heading in the right direction or if you need to bump it up a notch. Don’t go by weight. Your weight will not give you a true measure of your progress as you gain muscle and lose body fat. Take your circumference measurements, write them down, and keep them in a safe place. If you feel brave, take a before picture.
When you get stuck in a rut with your workouts or when you feel like giving up, looking back at your before picture and your starting measurements and seeing how far you have come can give you the extra motivation you need.
Be brave and post your measurements below. Being transparent will hold you accountable. Be proud of where you’re starting from. Be proud of where you’re going.
If posting them below is a little intimidating for you right now, you can also use this form to keep track of your measurements: BPM.Tv Measurement Sheet
