Well I need some good motivation, so why not bring back a familiar face…errr…shirt. Remember this:
Yup, looks nice on him. On me it has a certain ability to accentuate my fat rolls to the tenth degree. The challenge is simple enough, I have until a certain date to drop the fat. Whether I drop the fat or not, on the last day of the challenge I have to post a picture of myself in the oh so tight t-shirt. For the sake of public record here is some information about the current state of my body.
The Starting Line. Today is June 25th. As of today I weigh 178. I went over and plugged my numbers into the on-line body fat estimator.
For those who want to know the input values:
Waist at narrowest point, 34 inches; Waist size at naval, 36 inches; Hips at widest point, 39.5 inches; Neck at narrowest point, 15.5 inches; weight, 178 lbs.
Using your measurements of a 34 inches waist and weight of 178 pounds your body fat percentage is estimated to be 20.66 % using the U.S. Navy body fat formula, or 20.44 % using the formula developed by the YMCA. [Body fat estimator]
It should be noted that this calculator can overestimate body fat if you carry most of your weight around your belly- like me. This is fine though since most of the pounds dropped will likely come from the same location, so the results should as least stay consistent.
The Goal: To drop those rolls that this shirt will cling to like white on rice- or I guess brown on brown rice. As far as objective goals, the next time I visit the body fat estimator I want to input the following numbers:
Waist at narrowest point, 32 inches; Waist size at naval, 34 inches; Hips at widest point, 39 inches; Neck at narrowest point, 15.5 inches; weight, 167 lbs.
The above numbers would lead to a body fat estimate of roughly 16.5%.
The Dates: The starting date is today (June 25th, 2008), the ending date is a month from now (July 25th, 2008).
