    Question

    I'm new, and I've been taking measurements, and I've noticed that one of my legs is a good two inches bigger than the other! Anyone else? Is that normal?

    I was just watching Dr. G on Discovery Health and she was checking some body for an blood clot as a cause of death b/c one of his legs was 2.5inches bigger around than the other.

    So now I'm a little freaked out...someone help me out there!

    One of my calves is larger than the other. On the leg that has the smaller calf that foot is larger. I guess we compensate in odd ways. If you are freaked check with your dr. and express your concerns.

    Candace, it's completely normal to have your dominant leg be larger than the other (same goes for your arms, breasts, wrists, feet, etc...). Dominant doesn't necessarily mean the body part will correspond with the hand you write with either. Many people's dominant leg is opposite of their writing hand.

    Personally, my right leg is about an inch smaller. When I began losing weight it was easily 2-3" smaller. This is mainly because of some old injuries to that knee. I favor it when I workout and it doesn't have as much muscle. It's not noticeable to the visible eye. Since I started doing Pilates, it has caught up a little with my left.







    Measurements:
    Bust - Was 42" ~ Now 36"
    Waist - Was 39" ~ Now 27"
    Hips - Was 46" ~ Now 38"

    See my critters:
