    When you measure yourself....how tight do you pull that tape measure?

    I don't pull it so tight that I can't breathe...but I do pull it sungly around my chest as if I was wearing a bra. And my waist as if I was putting on a pair of jeans.

    I have NO idea if I am doing this right...but I guess as long as I am consistantly pulling the same, it shouldn't matter right?

    I often wondered myself. I pull a little, but not too tight at all. I agree, as long as you are consistent each time with how much you pull you should have an accurate reading.

    Tracy,
    Good questions, I'm curious myself. I pull a little but not too tight just like you.

    I also have to use my DH's metal tape measure :rolleyes: because I do not own the other kind. :o I am measure challenged as well, I can read 1/2's but after that, I'm clueless!!!:o

    I just try to pull the tape the same every week. I make sure I let my belly hang out (no sucking it in, I'd feel like I was cheating) and I try to make sure there is no slack in the tape, but I don't pull it enough to cut into my skin. ;) It's so hard to measure in the exact same spot every week too!!!
