Week 3: Body fat percentage

Istock_000001550337xsmallFrom the body fat estimator:

Waist size at narrowest point: 31"
Waist size at your naval: 36"
Hip size at widest point: 42"
Neck at narrowest point: 13.5"
Height: 5′ 3"
Weight: 157 lbs

Using your measurements of a 31 inches waist and weight of 157 pounds your body fat percentage is estimated to be 35.28 % using the U.S. Navy body fat formula, or 38.07 % using the formula developed by the YMCA.

Week one’s results were 39.30 % using the U.S. Navy body fat formula, or 40.10 % using the formula developed by the YMCA – so I’ve dropped 2-4% body fat. Doesn’t sound like much, but I’m still excited.
