Well, dang it all to heck...

Friday, April 05, 2013

So went in for a DEXA body scan today...
Good news & bad news. *of course*

The good news was that my BMI was at 24.9 - officially "Normal"! LOL And, even better, my bone density kicks butt.

The bad news... my body fat percentage is WAY higher than my measurement calculations show! According to my BIA scale, I'm at 24% - according to the Navy's measurement thingy, I'm at 27%.
The DEXA? It has me at 34%. Bah.
This is considered "obese". Lamesauce.

Ah well, at least it gives me a direction to go, yes? And, considering I started up over 60%, it's still the right direction. And, 130 lbs down is nothing to sneeze at.
So there.

Me at (probably) 50% and 35%:

    WOW! What a transformation! Don't let varying numbers negate your rightful feeling of pride in all you've done. It's good to know where you stand, but it NEVER defines you!

    The upside is you know where you stand. But it sure shows the variations in those things - good grief.

    And you're awesomesauce, btw. :)
