Body Fat Percentage Calculator - Yikes!

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

As part of this week's Springing to Action challenge I just did my body fat calculation using the tape measure method.
The calculator in the link didn't work very well for me...I couldn't see all the results so I used a different one. (The link is below)

All I can say about my results is YIKES!

Body Fat 38 %
Fat Mass 68 lbs
Lean Mass 112 lbs
Body Fat Category Obese

I'm not happy about being in the "obese" category but it's something else to strive to change.

Here is the calculator that worked for me:

    Planning on doing my measurements tonight - I don't think I'm going to like the results either.

    Thanks for the new link. I'm going to compare both sites. I love having something to focus on in addtion to the scale. You're going to get this done.

    It's only temporary - as you are on a path to better health.
