Body Fat Percentage

First Reading 26.6 (taken 6 days into the program)

Today 26.0

I very pleased overall, especially with the losses on my waist (4 inches!) and chest. The arms are a puzzler, as they actually grew in the first 2 weeks and then came down beyond the start point in Week 4. My best guess is that in the first 2 weeks I added muscle to my arms, and lost my fat elsewhere. In the past 2 weeks I must have lost weight in the arms. Either that, or I’m unable to operate a tape measure with any consistency.

The Body Fat percentage seems like a small loss, not just in total but when compared to the loss of inches. It’s possible I lost more in the first six days, but I’ll never know because I had no way to measure them at the time. Once I started the program I immediately decided to buy a BF scale and can now track it, but I have doubts about its accuracy. I’ve also tried using the calipers and cannot generate consistent readings one moment to the next.

Disclosure: I am a Beachbody Coach. I became a coach because I love the programs and the Shakeology product. I figured since I’m blogging my own experience anyway, and if helps someone decide to try to make the same change for the better, then I might as well earn a commission. The Beachbody links in this post and in the rest of the site will take you to the Beachbody store, where I will get credit for the sale at no extra cost to you. In fact, by buying from me instead of direct from Beachbody without a coach’s portal, you usually get a bonus DVD. If you purchase a Beachbody program, chances are someone is getting a commission. If you valued this post or the other information and articles I created, I would very much appreciate you buying the program through me! Also, any Amazon links you see also generate commissions, again at no cost to you. Thanks for any purchases you make.
