    Since I work for a hospital and we have registered dietitians I had a chance to start tracking my body composition to help me see exactly where I am. This is done with one of those fancy high end Tanita scales. I did my first weigh in on 5/28/09 and here were the results:

    5/29/09

    Age: 33
    Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 234.5lbs
    BMI: 33.6
    BMR: 2200 kcal
    Fat% 34.0
    Fat Mass: 79.5lbs

    Target BF%- 15%

    Predicted weight: 182.0lbs
    Fat to lose: 52.5lbs


    Now, seems pretty grim considering. I started a more regimented routine and cleaned up the diet a ton and got another reading yesterday.

    7/16/09

    Age: 33
    Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 230.0lbs (-4.5lbs)
    BMI: 33 (-.6)
    BMR: 2172 kcal
    Fat% 30.4 (-3.6%)
    Fat Mass: 70lbs (-9.5lbs)

    Target BF%- 15%

    Predicted weight: 188.5lbs
    Fat to lose:41.5lbs

    Not bad for the time I have been getting more serious and considering I was out for 2 weeks due to illness. What I thought was interesting was that my BMR dropped...not much but I guess it's normal when you drop weight. I'll continue re-checking every 30 days.

    ibfatty.

    That is what I thought also but I didn't think you could add 5lbs of muscle in just over 6 weeks. :dunno:

    By "fancy high end Tanita scales" do you mean one of those scales that measures water impedence, which tends to have wildly inaccurate results depending on water/carb/salt intake, as opposed to something that actually measures fat?
