    Helens post in Brides got me thinking, I know what you've all lost in weight but what has everyone lost measurement wise?

    I was 49, 37, 47 when I started.
    I'm 38,28,38 now so going the right way!

    Anyone seen a correlation between weight and inches lost?

    I had a 42-44" waist, and my biggest pair of trousers, purchased in October last year, were a 44".

    Now, everything I buy is a 34" :)

    I refuse to buy anything bigger.

    Total Inch Loss: Waist 10 INCHES!!!

    shocking!!! :D:D:D:D

    With a 45lb loss so far I am sure the inch loss is going to be impressive :D:D:D

    Cheers Tommee. I'm not sure that I could get down as low as you, I'm naturally broad anyway, but I will be reassessing when I get down another stone or so. Your loss is staggering, so if mine goes as smoothly as that I'll be very impressed!

    I've not measured yet! Was hoping my LLc will do that next week, when we have our first official developers meeting. (although for me it will actually be week 14!)

    I am in my 10th week and will ask to be measured on Wednesday, however at 5 weeks, I had lost 1st 6lb and had lost 2.5" on the bust, 2.5" on the hips and 5" on the waist, I was thrilled then.........................so I am hoping that I will have lost another few inches.

    On another note, has anyone lost cup sizes, I am gutted, my C cup bra is becoming quite empty and I am not happy about that, maybe I ought to start saving my pennies for some extra stuffing :)

    I can't remember what all my measurements are but my waist is 29". I think that that is amazing. I measured my thighs - they are 19" each - that's amazing too.

    In fact, today I was out with the P6's who were doing orienteering at a local parkland. There was lots of walking around and I remember thinking as I strode around after them how much of a pleasure it was walking and not having to deal with the discomfort of chafeing thighs. They don't meet in the middle at all, there is a gap... honestly. Even though it was a hot sunny day (in Scotland) I didn't sweat, gasp, have palapitations, need to sit down every five minutes, not be able to get up again without a struggle.

    Incy, my bust size has vastly reduced but is still in proportion with the rest of me. It makes running much more comfortable I can tell you. No more black eyes!

    Hi Incy!

    My bra size has actually gone up!
    I have gone from a 38 D to a 34 DD.
    I think its cos I ve lost so much weight from around my ribcage compared to my bust.
    I hear what your are sayin about black eyes AJ!:rolleyes:

    Right total inches lost in 8 weeks. (Please remember I'm a bloke!)

    Neck 1.25
    Chest 4
    Waist 4.5
    Hips 3.5

    So 13.25 inches in total. I'm not sure if that's good, average, rubbish or what!

    I have just come home from my LL session and we are just entering our 11th week, I asked to be measured so from my record book I have lost 5 inches on the bust, 9 inches on my waist and 4 inches off my hips and my total loss is 2.2 stone
    It's incredible that I have lost 9 inches on my waist, thats 4 inches per stone at the moment

    I know! I think it's because shirts are often measured by collar sizes, so it's interesting to see that area shrinking. Bearing in mind that your neck isn't actually that big to start with a loss of over an inch is quite a lot! Means the chins are disappearing too. :)

    I've still got a long way to go to get rid of the belly, and to get a decent waist again. Maybe I'll have to re-assess my targets again in a couple of weeks.
