So, now that I'm zeroing in on my final goal, I have a new goal and that is a body fat percentage. I figure I will try to get to a good body fat percentage over a number on the scale as my weight will always be hefty due to my build.
Anyway, I haven't been using the body fat thingee on my scale as it's not accurate first thing in the morning (should be up for at least 3 hours to use it). AND you have to have clean, but not too dry feet. Basically, not a good time to weigh myself usually, so I've skipped it.
However, the last few days I've been taking a body fat reading before going to bed - after taking off my socks and slippers (feet are a bit moist) and I'm finding the readings fascinating.
Monday night: 31% body fat
Tuesday night: 32% body fat
Wednesday night: 25% body fat (was on my feet for 14 hours this day)
Thursday night: 24% body fat (was on my feet 11 hours this day)
Friday night: 32% body fat
Saturday night: 26% body fat (was not on my feet a whole lot - but weird!)
What I'm finding is that if I am on my feet a lot during the day, my readings are much lower for body fat, even if I actually weigh more on the scale.
I would love to have a 24% body fat (or lower), but how will I know when I get there? Especially with these whacko readings? Should I do this scan the same time every day after being away for a couple hours? Anyone know how to figure out what is my body fat with these whacko readings?
