The results from yesterdays examination was the following (from memory but will be getting a report in the next month or so):
- I weight 111.5kg (weigh in this morning had me at 109.55kg so my scales is probably off)
- My body fat percentage is 27.7% - can't remember which device took this measurement or if it was the average.
- My Bone Density is pretty high - think the value 3.4 was mentioned and the guy said it's the second highest he'd seen.
- I look fat on an x-ray :)
I'm not going to get into a debate about BMI, just to say this doesn't really bother me - it's absolutely great as a risk factor for populations but individual results may vary - maybe my high bone density means I actually am big boned :)
So, if I aim for the lower end (18%) of the fitness category described on the wiki article, then I've got 13.2kg's of body fat to lose (using the formula M x (A - D)/(1-D), where M = current mass, A = actual body fat percentage (as a decimal) and D = desired body fat percentage). That puts my target weight at 98.3kg (BMI = 29.03) - a good target :)
