Last night at work, it was ridiculously
slow (I work at the local Y) and so, at a particularly boring time of night, I decided to bite the bullet and get the head trainer to redo my body composition analysis (the last one I had done was in late February.)
I set my goal BF% at 28% (since the last time, it was at 34%) and we put in my gender (female), my age (32), my height (5') and my body type (athletic).
When the results came out, the trainer went, "Holy....****.
And I was standing there going, "What? WHAT?!
Oh my god, it's horrendous, isn't it? I'm half fat, aren't I? WHAT?!"
And he says, "In order for you to get to 28% body fat....you'll have to gain
But he was right. As of last night, I am at 22.4% body fat. And yeah, yeah, I know....those body fat analyzers are not as accurate as being measured with calipers. I know that. But there's no way they're that
far off-base. Like, I doubt that I'm really at 40% body fat or something.
I'm just amazed, because on my last analysis, I was at 34%. I guess that weight training is paying off! And I guess that explains, too, why no one ever believes that I weigh as much as I do....because I don't have that much fat. (According to the analysis, out of my 140 pounds of total weight, only 32 pounds is fat.)
Let me tell you, I have been on cloud ten ever since last night! *L*
