I could probably lose up to a stone, Aitch
It's belly and boobs
ok here goes... this is gonna be scary...
me normally versus me at my biggest... if this doesn't motivate me nothing will.... >>gulps<<
Hi there, I've just noticed this - can I join too, please?. Having been over 16st (height 5ft 3) I'm mostly OK with my weight (about 10st 7lbs at present) but could do with loosing about a stone of podge from around my middle. I cut back on my running after the marathon I did in May but still ate the same amount so got heavier. It's gradually shifting now I'm running more but this thread will help with motivation Must eat more slowly!

It's amazing how much younger you look on top one than on 3rd one!
Can I be in if I don't actually weigh myself for a few weeks yet? Previous uneasy relationship with scales and numbers so would prefer to wait until my clothes feel reasonable before inflicting it on myself!
Re: body fat. This is pretty much totally lifted from my exercise physiology lecture notes (sorry Trevor) but explains it well I think! Have added little notes....
Methods of assessment:
-Hydrostatic weighing (very accurate but not widely available...only specialised
university research centres etc)
-Skin-fold thickness technique (4 or 7 site most common)*. Accurate when done
by somebody experienced. Most accurate to get them to do the follow-up
-Bioelectrical impedance (Measures amount of current flow through tissue. Fat- free tissue has greater conductivity = less impedance than fatty tissue)...but not
very accurate really. Used in those Tanita scales etc. Errors depending on
hydration status etc...and read somewhere that the scales tend to only measure
lower body fat-shudder.
-Other lab techniques - Radiography, CT, MRI, DEXA. DEXA is the technique
they use for bone scans. Apparently it's as accurate as the hydrostatic
weighing but don't think it's licensed for that indication so forget it!
*Most widely used todayThree or more sites measuredInactive individuals – 4 sitesTrained individuals – 7 site method Bicep, tricep, subscapular, supraspinale, abdominal, front-thigh and medial-calfTypical scores Elite male athlete (33-57mm); female (45-69mm)
