Hi Kerry. Actually, I never weigh or measure my obese/overweight clients. I want their focus to be on how they’re starting to feel, both physically and mentally about themselves. I tell them to ‘monitor’ how their clothes fit. When they start getting looser – they’re making progress. I even wrote an article about this once entitled “I Love It When My Clients’ Pants Fall Down” after observing one of my clients one day constantly tugging at/pulling up her pants during our session. They were the same pants she had been wearing since we had started training together 🙂
I hope that this helps.
