Maybe my Bodyfat Monitor isn't wrong?
Monday, April 12, 2010
I have the hand held Omron body fat monitor. I got it when I was eating super clean and doing more exercise. I took the number with a grain of salt as I had always had my BF done at the gym by the same trainer with calipers. Since I haven't had a membership for years, I bought this last year to get an idea, after gaining all the weight while pregnant and losing it. I read all the reviews and understood this is just an estimate.
WELL, since my hospitalization and my weight going down and now up and not exercising the way I was it's reading 23% OMG. I was 19.3 - 18% before this. Oh boy, wake up call. Scale isn't the only thing that changed. Even if the BF% numbers aren't super accurate, they are UP. My weight is about 3 - 4 pounds up from the 18% BF days. Okay calm down I can get this under control, can't I???? Oh great control, the one thing I need to ease up on, lol.
Has anyone had their BF done with calipers and then used a handheld? Just curious.
Well off to do errands which include the gardening center to start Anthony's first Vegetable garden!
Made my veggies for a couple of my protein side dishes.
