Body fat test

Monday, June 16, 2014

Ok so Saturday I did a bod pod test where it tests your body fat percentage. I honestly was hoping that it would be below 30%. I thought with all the work I had done surely I was out of obsese. Well NOPE...it was 34%. I have to say I was disappointed. But he talked to me and it is possible I am not eating enough fat and protein to get leaner and gain muscle. The weight didn't bother me. I just want to rid myself of fat and replace it with strong lean muscle. So yes I was a little depressed about it. Until I went looking at pictures yesterday. I found one where I think I am at my heaviest ever. It was after marriage #2. I think it was our "honeymoon" I guess. We were in Wyoming which is where we got married. Anyway, I put a collage together with that picture and then some recent ones of me. I have NO reason to be upset at all.

So here is me about 18 years ago in the upper corner with my son who must have been 7 or 8. The rest are current with in the last month or so!! Bottom right is after my color run!

Anyway I have come a long way and am very proud of myself! I can do more now at 48 then I ever thought possible at 30! I feel better then ever! And it can only get better! So as I work at getting below 30% body fat I'll be happy with the journey!!!

    You are right!!! You have nothing to be disappointed about! Your progress pictures said it all!!! I would LOVE to have a test like that done. I had it done once, but the results were kind of out there.... ridiculously generous... even the person doing the test said "that can't be right... you obviously have more body fat than that".... then apologized and said they didn't mean to offend me, lol....

    We can do this!!!!!

    emoticon You have a lot to be proud of - even the body fat % is just a number. Work at it, but don't be defined by it. That you say you are still "obese" is ludicrous!
