    I am not quite sure what my body fat percentage is, but I can say that I have lovehandles on my lower stomach that i've had for years and can't seem to get rid of. I've read that I can't spot weight loss (that I can't direct where I want fat removed) so i'm hoping that when i start losing weight that will be the first place it comes off.

    I definitely want to lower my body fat percentage as well as lose some weight. I am just hoping that when I can motivate myself enough to go to the gym and eat healthier foods, it will become a routine and I will soon start to feel better about myself.

    A man weighing 180 pounds with 19% fat will look much smaller (and be much healthier) than a man at 180 pounds with 35% fat. They weigh the same, yet the composition is different. Because muscle is more dense than fat the person with less fat and more muscle will look smaller.

    Stop being so obsessed with body weight and pay attention to body composition. How much body fat do you have compared to muscle? Simply seeing how much you weigh isn't very helpful.

    Perhaps the gym can do a composition test, have it done now and again to see if there are improvements you can't see on the scales?

    Oh, to be young again and worrying about being 180 as opposed to 280. You are wise to be thinking of these things now and will benefit greatly over a long period of time. I'm sure many people on this site agree.
