i took my body measurements for the first time today.
my left thigh is smaller than my right, by an inch.
i thought maybe i did something wrong so i measured right above my knee, below my knee and my calf & those were all the same.
mid-thigh, about 4 inches up from my knee and at the very top, just below my hip, are both an inch different.

I know it's only an inch...but why???

some background - I'm right handed, so I assume my right leg is stronger? maybe more muscle on that side?
I also had back surgery (twice) and have some numbness on the outside of my left leg. could the numbness make the muscle thinner/weaker?

any thoughts?

I know I can't control where I lose weight, but any suggestions on how to get them equal? exercises?

People aren't symmetrical. Don't worry about it.

Everyone has one side that will measure slightly different than the other. This is normal.

low calorie restaurant lunches?
Lettuce like THAT would be fine. That doesn't sound bad at all! Except we don't have that restaurant here. Probably any place can make something like that though! Thanks for the advice :)
