Overcoming the urge to measure

Overcoming the urge to measure

Since starting PE I’ve had an overwhelming urge to measure to see if I’ve gained. It started as a daily thing. I quickly realized that measuring daily was an exercise in futility and forced myself to wait at least a week in between measurements. Almost like a weekly weigh in. After the first month I thought I was looking bigger and measured again. Now I’m almost done with my second month. I still feel like I look larger but am restraining from measuring. One of the most important things I realized was the math of PE. Most people say it takes a year to gain about an inch. One inch = 2.54 centimeters. Spread out 2.54 centimeters over 12 months and you’re looking at gains of approximately 0.21 centimeters per month. That’s 5 months to see a centimeter of difference.

To me, measuring repeatedly looks like the bane of PE. If you’re looking for short term gains, you aren’t going to see them. All that will happen is you see very small differences and get discouraged. I don’t want to fall into the “I tried this for 3 months and nothing happened” camp, so I’m holding off measuring until November unless I see a huge difference in my appearance. One of things I’ve noticed though is that as I’ve continued to follow the routine, I do it more for habit/pleasure than I do for the potential gains. I’m hoping that by staying in the habit and finding ways to stay motivated maybe I’ll actually see the difference 4 months from now.

This has been kinda of an observation/statement/update thread, but I hope it sparks some thought for other newbies like me.

My thread on the downsides of big girth: Big Girth - The Downside

Yeah I hate to measure. You have illustrated the math beautifully. The most I’ll do is a visual appraisal in the mirror. I got a nice big measure of seven inches measured from the side a few months ago. That is how a girl measures you. Not bone-pressed, not with a rope measure to take in the curve, or anything else. I’m not saying it’s not cheating, since the dogma around here is that a side measure is a huge over-estimate. Let me just say I have owned that ruler for fifteen years, and measured many times, and never come anywhere close to above six from the side, let alone seven. I was barely touching my skin. It told me the eight months of PE were sure as hell working.

The bigger issue here is erection quality. As I ease into my hanging routine, and backed off girth work for awhile, erection quality in and of itself takes a backseat. You don’t want to measure and see the same old numbers or smaller. I really might not measure until 2013. I want to see at least seven and half from the side at that point. By spacing out the measures, you can be sure to see that increase. I think being diligent with kegals will help the erection quality issue.

Trust me, you can get a long length to match that monster girth of yours someday. On pure volume, most people are playing catch-up with you. I will consider a girth of over six to be near my ultimate goals.

I have been resisting the urge to measure recently, as I began hanging and so desperately want to see results on the tape, but I will wait a few more weeks to let the hanging have an effect.

Maybe a month. Who knows.

It seems as if I’ve gained girth and length, and I have certainly gotten better EQ as a result.

Began December 2009 at 5 7/8" length and 5" girth.

As of December 5th 2012 7 3/8" BPEL and 6 1/8" base girth.

Going for the magic 8"x6"

I’m with you guys. I’m eight weeks into my first 12 weeks on the Newbie Routine. I’ve resisted the urge to take any kind of progress measurements — I’m waiting until I finish the first 12 weeks. I’d rather wait and actually see some gains than measure too soon and see no change. I feel like that would really put a damper on my focus and motivation.

Agree with that. It’s hard to overcome the urge to see progress but if you measure too often you see little result which leads to disappointment which leads to giving up.

agree that you should not be measuring every chance you get.

I am a three month newbie and was losing motivation due to a lack

of change on the ruler.

I am thinking every 3 months is reasonable.
