Body measurement charts are useful to track your body composition changes. Most people rely on a scale to track their progress. However, the scale is not an accurate way to measure your weight loss or workout progress. When you add muscle or even just drink water, the scale will not be accurate. Many people lose inches but don’t lose weight according to the scale. Taking your body measurements is a much more accurate method to track your progress.

Uses for a Body Measuring Chart

When you burn fat and build heavier muscle, your weight may not change or may even increase even though your body is tighter and smaller. Therefore, taking your measurements can be a better gauge of your progress than weighing yourself. We suggest taking your measurements every 2-4 weeks.

A weight loss measurement chart focuses on body measurements for weight loss tracking and not on the number on the scale.

You can also use the customizable chart for sewing if you want to record body measurements. Simple edit the title to adapt the measurement visualizer to your specific needs.

How to Take Your Body Measurements

  • Either wear fitted clothes or no clothes in order to get the most accurate measurements.
  • Don’t hold your stomach in. Instead, stand tall and relaxed.
  • When you are trying to lose weight, take your measurements every two weeks. However, when your goal is to maintain your weight, then take your measurements once a month.
  • Use a measuring tape from your sewing kit or purchase a body measure tape. A body measure tape measures any body part (arm, thigh, calf, chest, waist, and hips).

Where should you take measurements?

The lines on the body measurement tracker can be moved so you can decide what parts of your body you want to measure. These are the parts most commonly measured. You might want to make a note of where you measured in your weight loss journal so you measure the same place each time.

  • Upper arm: Measure around the largest part of each arm.
  • Bust: Measure the largest part around the chest.
  • Chest: Measure just under your bust.
  • Hips: Measure the biggest part of your hips.
  • Waist: Measure around the smallest part of your waist.
  • Thighs: Measure around the biggest part of each thigh.

  1. Hello Nicole, it amazes me that these printables are free. The whole website is fantastic. It’s good to see people putting their knowledge and abilities out to the public without expecting anything in return except for knowing it will help so many people. I am a Holistic Nurse specializing in nutrition and the body’s ability to heal and take care of itself if we let it. I will definitely pass your site along to everyone who needs it and of course, I will use it myself (as it is much better than the ones I quickly draw up for my clients) God Bless You for your love and generosity.
