I need to loose my weight but I know that my measurements are more important than what the scale says.

Is it better to measure ones self before, during or after a period? I know not a great question to Ask but need to know. I already loss 2 pounds but I felt it in my stomach before I saw it on the scale. Anyway your thoughts would be nice to see. Thank you, JRL.

I do my measurements every Monday, regardless of period. If theres a fluctuation then I would make a note. Say if your more bloated, it would reflect on the next weeks measurements. I say just pick a day an go for it. 

If your only wanting to measure once a month I would choose the day your not menstruating. And keep it the same each month.

Your welcome...what are you measuring? My nutritionist had me measure my neck, chest, waist at belly button, hips, thigh, calf, bicep, forearm... All at the largest part of the body part. Also pulling the tape as tight as possible. If you want to lose inches try Jillian michaels 30 day shred. I lost 13 inches overall my body in the first week doing it 5 times that week. Week 2 I did level 2 for only 2 days and lost 4 inches. This is week 3 and I'm doing level 2 5 days this week..hoping to see lots more inches...

Thanks for the info. Right now I don't know my measurements because my son took off with my ruler and have to go through his 3.5 toy boxes to find it. Lol. Gotta love 5 year olds. I'm only going to measure once a month so I will have to wait in a wk or so. Lol.

It's crazy but before my period I get super bloated and I've gained 7 pounds before. During my period it slowly goes down but then a few days after it I go back to my regular weight. Everyone's different but for me I'd measure myself a few days after my period is over.

I measure myself about twice a month. (Only because I'm super anal about my results).

But I NEVER meausre myself while on my period. I gain about 5 pounds and about 2 inches while on my period. I get extremely bloated. I don't suggest you measure during your period. You'll only get upset.

Like mentioned before, I also suggest 30 day shred. It is really great. I lost inches doing it. I also have started running on a daily basis.

Best of luck
