    I have a body fat testing scale at home, today it read the lowest I've had it read, 24.8%. I suspected for a long time it read at least a couple points high for me. Over the last 3 months I've had 5 or 6 trainers at 24 hour do a caliper test, results ranged from 13% to 30% (yeah real specific.)

    So today I did the hydrostatic testing, 14.9% :rofl:

    Those home scales work real well...

    any pics of the front?
    Who did the hydrostatic test for you and how much did it cost?
    I would be interested in just knowing my numbers.

    I think my remaining body fat is around my gut :( I think if I lose 6 more pounds or so of fat, that's what's gonna go. :x:



    Here's the website for the company www.bodyfattest.com They go to different gyms and stuff in like 5 cities or so if I remember right. It was $49 for the first test and $35 for all tests down the road (I'll prob go every 3 or 6 months.)

    Eventually I want to get back down to single digit body fat. I'm trying to lose 5-7 more pounds, see how I look and feel and the probably up my calories closer to maintanance and see if I can maintain my bodyweight but get my lifts up.

    fat doesn't come off in spots brosephina, it comes off everywhere.

    you may have more around your stomach, but you will see loss everywhere if you work at it.

    A 24 hour fitness trainer of course.


    To be fair, I was probably 5-7% higher because it was 3 months ago but still...

    Came here to post that.

    When I used to weigh 184 I was at 14.2% and I looked a bit leaner than you.

    Well, sucks for me I guess. I'll just have to get to 8 to look 10 which is where I want to be.

    But I think it's because my hip bones make it look like I have bigger love handles then I actually do, there isn't much fat there.

    its just numbers. Who knows if that 8 will actually make you look the way you want. You might get there earlier. But anyway great job on losing that much. The good thing about the scales is that they are consistent. Although yours sounds pretty bad

    Yeah, scale says I lost 6-7% which I think is accurate, so I guess it's good for that.
