Aunrio- Thanks!

MzzThingaling- Really? Is it still green? Right now mine isn't pink anymore, but has a ton of streaks on the edges. I've been wanting to bleach and do another color haha.

I have got a question. How accurate do you think online % body fat calculator is considering it was probably calibrated based on a typical body for members of the majority ethnicity, which has been scientifically shown to differ somewhat in composition from ethnic minorities? Asians have different and lower cutoffs for obesity with Bmi calculations. I am wondering because I wanted to get to around 15% body fat and a leanness to see my abs but I think I might achieve that look I want at what will probably measure 18-20% body fat given my current calculations. What is your personal experience with the calculators. I had a dexascan when I was 186 pounds that put me at 31% but given my measurements an online calc suggested 35.9%.

No it's blonde and brown. I did were a cute green and black wig for St. Paddy's though

Aunrio I think they are best used for estimates. There is no way they can tell you without knowing your body composition and metabolism.

Hello ladies!!! I have been MIA all year and some of last year. I am trying to get back on track, I haved gained 12 lbs since Jan now weighing more than I did when I got on 3FC in Sept 2011. I had a Dr appt last week and was lectured for 30 mins about my weight and the way I eat fried foods. I was told that my body is giving signs that it is trying to fight diabetes, and that I need to change what and how I eat ASAP! I pray that I am able to get this weight off because hearing a Dr tell me that really scared me!

Hey Ladies,

My name is Natasha and I was glad to see this thread, so I decided to hop on board. I think I was a member of 3FC some time ago, but I recently rejoined and have restarted my journey again.

Well wishes to everyone

MzzThingaling- That sounds fun. That's why I swear I'm happy wigs were created.

ObviouslyIncognito- Hi!

Hmm I've been wondering how do you get one of those ticker things btw. I might be doing something wrong.

Hope everyone is doing well with their journeys!

Hello. Apparently, you have to have made 20 posts and been a member for 20 days before you can use the signature feature. Once you get it, you can use 3FC or Ticker Factory to generate a ticker. Then cut & paste the code into your signature. I'm still waiting to accumulate enough to use the signature.

I totally understand. I want to get off of my HBP pills. You can do this.

Hi guys...just wanted to jump and say hey. I'm still going...Almost down to a 12. I bought 1-2 pairs of 12 paints/capris and they actually fit. 14 regular is still more comfortable. A year ago, I was in a 22/24 (mostly 24)...so that's progress. Started C25K training to run my first 5K on June 16th. I MUST be losing my mind....

Hi. New WOC here. Nice to meet you all. I'm here to burn the fat, and feed the muscle. I have a tangible goal of losing 50 pounds by Steptember 1st! Wish me luck ya'll. 'Luckily I actually love to exercise, it's the diet and controlling my eating (resisting cravings etc) that pulls me down.

I also have an unhealthy relationship with food, low SE and other issues :-/
