Getting Started with your measurements

Get ready to track your progress! We like using a measuring tape more than the scale. And here’s why: 

Muscle is denser than adipose tissue (“fat”), so you could actually weigh the same, but be much tighter and more toned. Taking your measurements along with pictures means you’ll see your real results. Measure yourself once every week and share it on Nutrachat.com for even more support and encouragement!.

EASY MEASUREMENT TIPS: 

  • Use a flexible measuring tape to measure the complete distance around your body each time
  • Make sure you measure in the same spot each time so you are consistent
  • Be Honest! It’s OK to fluctuate - it’s your overall progress you want to see! 


    WHY TAKE A BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTO?

     

    Whether you want to lose weight, add muscle, tone up, or just become healthier, before pictures are the best way to see your transformation. Sure, the scale will tell us the number of pounds we’ve lost, but how can we tell if we’ve sculpted abs, developed beautiful strong arms or toned up our legs? Pictures show us the truth! We’ve seen so many before and after photos and the most beautiful part about them is we can actually tell the difference in how you FEEL! You’re beaming with confidence and happiness!

    When taking before and after photos, it’s best to use a digital camera or your phone. Have a friend or loved one that you feel comfortable with snap your pic. If you’re taking it yourself, set the camera on a flat surface and set a self-timer.

     

    WHAT YOU SHOULD WEAR

    Wear your favorite bikini or workout gear. Pick something that is form fitting, that shows your body. We want to see your beautiful curves!

     

    LIGHTING IS IMPORTANT

    Take your picture in a room with as much light as possible. Natural light coming in from a large window is best. You want the light to be front-filled and not behind you, overhead, or harsh.

     

    WHERE TO TAKE THE PICTURE

    Take your before and after pictures in front of a plain white wall or a solid background. Avoid taking your pictures in your bathroom, your closet, or places that have a lot going on in the background.

    ALWAYS TAKE MORE THAN ONE PICTURE!
