Check out this Body Fat Chart and scroll down for an interesting formula for determining your goal weight by percentage of body fat lost:www.bmi-calculator.net/body-fat-calculator
I plugged my measurements into their body fat percentage calculator and came out with 25.34%. Sigh. This puts me in the "acceptable" range, while I would rather be in the "fitness" range. :)
But what I found interesting was the calculation underneath the chart. Here, if I say that at 120 lbs, I am 25.34% fat, that means that I have 30.4 pounds of fat, and 89.6 pounds of lean body mass. If I make it my goal to reduce my body fat to 21%, then I need to bring my total fat down to 25.2 pounds of fat, making my goal weight my 89.6 pounds of lean body mass, plus my 25.2 pounds of fat, for a total weight of 114.8, or 115 pounds.
