It’s about time I posted a new video, so here I am talking about my new body fat calipers.
One of my reasons for getting these was because a lot of people said I didn’t look like I was at 28% body fat in my ‘before’ photo – so I wanted to see how this measure compared to my scales. Of course, I was kind of hoping I’d come out lower.
Watch the vlog to find out the result…
And here is an example of an online calculator that you can use instead of a chart if you like.
You might notice that the online calculator offers a few alternative types of measurement where readings are taken from more areas of the body. I’m thinking of trying those next time and comparing the results, just for interest.
I’d like to add that it’s really important not to get too hung up on any of these measurements. As you’ll see in the video, I take a pretty lighthearted view of it all. How you look in the mirror is probably the best thing to go on, but even then our perception of how we look can be coloured by our mood.
To me, as long as things are going in the right general direction over the long term, it’s going well.
