Use Body Fat Percentage to Measure Progress

Varying Body Fat Percentage Levels

I wasn’t feeling very motivated this week. It was a struggle to get up and get my butt to the gym every morning and I REALLY wanted lobster mac and cheese (which is weird because even before I started training this wasn’t something I craved). Anyways, I finally made it to the end of the week and decided I should get my Body Fat Percentage tested and GUESS WHAT?! I’m down from 33% to 26%!!!

Motivation back.

I’m learning that this is why you can’t use just one form of measurement. It’s not just about scale, or BMI or inches. This is why progress pics are so important. I didn’t lose any weight this week, which is part of the reason I was feeling so bleh, but as it turns out, even though the scale didn’t reflect it, I’m still on track.

According to builtlean.com, I am now in the “average” category of the Ideal Body Fat Percentage chart. It took 6 weeks and a pretty significant lifestyle change to get there, but I did it! Safely and on my own.

Now I’ve got my eye on the 18-22% body fat percentage range…and then a coach to get me to those bikini competitor dreams.

Dream big, train hard.
