So, I was looking around and did quite a few body fat calculations to see if the results would vary much. My body fat percentage is roughly 26%. It doesn't fall into the obese range, which is surprising because everything else freaking does! LOL. But what I thought was most interesting was that my lean body weight is 178 pounds. From what I've been reading, my ultimate goal should be about that.
It's weird because when I was in high school and weighed 160 lbs, I was SKINNY. Like bones sticking out skinny. I always wondered about those "healthy weight ranges".. because when I weighed 175 lbs, I felt I looked best... healthy and thin, but not sickly. It's weird to me that supposedly I should weigh between 130-150 lbs. I've always been curvy and that is never going to change. I think if I ever got that skinny I'd look sick. So, after I hit my 200 lb goal, I'm going for 175 lbs and I should be done. But I'll tackle that hurdle once I get to my goal weight.
If anyone is interested in calculating, this website is really neat. It gives you a lot of useful information based off the info you provide: http://www.hussmanfitness.org/
You will need to know your body fat percentage, which can be calculated here: http://www.inch-aweigh.com/cal
Post your results if you'd like to share! I found it to be somewhat motivating!!
