I would really like a feature where I could enter my measurements for my stomach, arms, hips, ect. I would love to be able to see the progress I've made on graph similar to the weight one. What does everyone else think?

Me too!!

I just took measurements today and logged them on the Atkins website so I wouldn't have to try to keep track of them on a piece of paper somewhere.

That would be awesome and totally scary. But I guess that's the only way I would be able to acknowledge the problem! Smile

I agree - This site should have the ability to record those so we can have a BMI -and- % Body fat calculation!

I would love this too, put mine in my journal so like 12jsheart, I don't have to keep track of a piece of paper.

I agree too! I've been tracking mine on a spreadsheet and in my journal, but I think having a graph would be very convenient and motivational! And it will help people see that it's not just the scale # that counts.. Sometimes people are frustrated if the scale doesn't move enough, but their measurements/body composition may be changing more than they know!

I hadn't thought of making a spreadsheet. Duh! lol I think I will do that too.

I totally agree with erika, a visual is much better than looking at numbers side by side (at least I think so). That's why I really like to look at before and after photos. It's just different when you can SEE the changes. Especially when you don't notice them "on yourself" yet.

I just sent them a message (through the contact link at the bottom of the page) and I think it would be helpful if a few other users also send a message showing your support. Maybe we can get this feature on here!
