I Hit 8"+. But I seem to have lost some girth
It’s kinda bitter sweet. I hit my first goal of 8.0”. Hit it very well, the ruler was reading 8 and 1/16” some times 8 and 1/8”. So I feel confident that I hit the 8.0” and am recording that.
But my girth seems to be down by 1/8”. I was 5.625” 2 weeks ago and for over a month I thought I was at that, now 5.5”. Unless I was not getting a good measurement before. I came up with a more reliable way to measure girth. I have a flexible tape that is used for measuring lens diameters in mm. I attached a weight to this so it will always pull down with the same force and hence tighten to the same amount each time I measure. So at first I thought that the measurements were off because I never used this before. Nope I got out the old trusty cloth tape and got the same results. What I don’t like about the cloth tape is the metal tab that is on the 1st inch. Never felt I got a very good measurement with it. That’s why I came up with the other method.
I was so focused on hitting my goal this week that I probably did not do my girth work as well as I should have.
