    I don't see my CDC often... acutally I haven't seen her since I started, but this suits me. I measure myself every week and we talk over the phone. Her husband or daughter delivers the food to me.

    I believe its monthly, but nothing to stop you from doing it fortnightly. Weekly might be off putting, if there is no change but you will have a result fortnightly. x

    Mine only ever weighed me. She never measured me at all, so I measured myself every week and wrote it on my record card.

    My CDC measured me everywhere when I first started. Since then I have always measured myself as I feel a tad bit uncomfortable having someone else measure my bulges :eek:

    My CDC would do it if I asked her too though. But she is aware that I feel uncomfortable about it, so no longer asks! xx

    Mine measured me every week, though I get my supplies in month blocks now, but I still weigh and measure myself weekly. I've found that I generally lose between 2 and 4 inches all over each week, so I'm happy to measure weekly as it's a bit of an extra boost. But if you measure monthly you'd get to see those loses in bigger amounts, so can see the appeal in that. Think it's all up to the individual though. My CDC said that she has some people you religiously weigh weekly, some that are monthly, and some that don't bother at al.

    I don't find it off putting if I don't lose any thing. I don't notice the weight coming off, so the inches show me something is happening.

    Thats the motivating bit Tash. I lost 18 " in 6 weeks (last time on CD), i was a slower looser in lb's but it was noticable to see. I was doing sit ups and toning my arms as well, so do think that made a difference. x

    I've lost 2st 6lbs over all, and 31 inches all over and I think I get more motivated by the inches than the lbs personally. Think it's just that sometimes I feel like the lbs are coming off but I look and feel the same, whereas the inches remind me that I'm not!

    Thanks Nikki, I was a 24 all over, I'm now and 18 on top mostly, though I can go a size either side in some things, and a 20 on the bottom, I've got big hips! My mum keeps going on about how my big hips are good for child bearing, she's done it for the past 3 or 4 years, I think she's trying to hint!

    Mine's never offered to measure me, don't think she does it --- to be honest I've not done it either, will just measure size losses through clothes.

    I get measured every time I go. I am a slow loser, don't usually do the 'stone a month', but I do lose inches. So, when the scales aren't moving my inch loss keeps me motivated.
