    If one buys protein powders and crap from bodybuilding.com, one can choose cheap plastic skin calipers as one of the "free gift" options. (Self-retracting tapes for body measurements are another option.) So cheap that one can keep a set in the bathroom, a set in the gym bag, a set in the car... So that one can obsessively measure one's self at any time the urge may strike!

    Um... sorry, IDK where I was going with that... icon_redface.gif

    Not suggesting you need expensive ones, but industry standards are Lange and Harpenden.
