So I went back to plug some new numbers into this formula and realized the link I shared was for the chart you look at AFTER you get your numbers. Here is the link to enter your measurements so you know what you're looking at on the chart!
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.
