It’s been a little less than four years since I had my body fat percentage accurately calculated at a mobile testing station. Last night I had it done again by Linda of bodyfattest.com outside of a health club in Reseda.
Last year was pretty rough on my body; I was under a lot of stress and was depressed about my mom and didn’t do a very good job of keeping myself well. I sort of turned it around in the last quarter, and have done a fair job so far in 2013 of watching what I eat and exercising regularly.
|March 2009||January 2013|
|Weight:||197.0 lbs||194.5 lbs|
|Lean Body mass:||84.70%||84.65%|
|Fat Body mass:||30.1 lbs||29.9 lbs|
|Lean Body mass:||166.9 lbs||164.6 lbs|
In 2009 the little chart I was given pegged my body fat percentage for my age in the “good” range. This year it counts as “healthy”. I’d like to get it down a few more points, but I suppose I can’t complain.
The important note from the results of my testing:
According to your age group and your percent fat of 15.4%, the closest value on the chart is 14.9, placing you at the 75% percentile with a rating of ‘Healthy Range’.
