I'm now Acceptable

Today was my last workout with Nelson so I asked him to do a body fat measurement. They use the biolelectrical impedance method at my gym, which involves some electrodes and running a current through you. Last year around this time, it reported my body fat percent at 38% (!). I'm not sure I believe that number, because at my most unfit time in college, it was measured at 33% and I was in way better shape last year. Maybe I'm just in denial, though. The good news is that now I'm at 31%, now in the "Acceptable" range. I've got to lose 7% more to get into the "Fitness" range. So yay, just in time for my wedding, I have become Acceptable.

Looks like Anandi Raman Creath is winning in the poll (both on the blog and in conversations I've had.) I really like it better, so I'm going to be brave. Jasmine told me I had to actually correct people when they called me the wrong name. I don't even do that now with my first name.

Peanut has a giant hotspot near his tail stub (which explains all the biting and scratching he's been doing). Off to the vet today to see if we can get some allergy stuff for the Peanut. Poor Peanut.


  1. Not to brag or anything, I'm about 25 %. Might be less now after 3 days of sickbed tho :)

    How's peanut doing ?

  2. Shakma -

    Aren't you a guy?? Your body fat is automatically less - biology and all that. so there! :)

    Hope you feel better!

  3. Does the measurement thing hurt?
    Guys naturally have a lower percentage of body fat, and I'm not sure what the average is. I don't know what the average is for women either, but was told that even fit-seeming supermodels are in their thirty-something percents. Who knows.


I love comments, so please leave me your thoughts. Thanks in advance!
