So where can I get or who can I talk to to find out a good range for weight or for body fat %? I know BMI isn't good but when I started and was morbidly obese BMI and I was very round it was obvious I was in poor health. Now well I think I weigh too much and having a 46" waist is a bad heath thing as well so I don't think I'm there yet. My doctor is not help but there has to be someone who can give me some body fat % goal or something? Any other advice to settle this little dispute is most welcome
Right now my hard fought compromise of a goal is 240 but really that is still way high at least based on my current fitness level and physical shape. I can’t do weights so I’m not very muscular except my cycling legs.
My wife doesn't want me looking like skelator (which I apparently used to ) or getting some eating disorder (which all my friends parents growing up thought I had) and melting away. So today upon reading my weight in on the biggest loser thread reminds me 6 more pounds and that is it
Long story short(er)
Stepping into the way way way back machine.
Somewhere about 7th grade I believe I met a girl that would someday become my wife. My science teacher let me pick who I wanted as a lab partner since I got high score who woulda thunk it.
At the time I was 6'2" and perhaps 110. By the time I got into High School during my athletic "career" I was still pretty low in weight if I remember correctly the starting roster for freshman football RT: 207, RG: 170, C: 165, LG: 115, LT: 175 I guess Judo at a good Dojo since I was 5 made up for some weight difference The coaches constantly picked on me about it but hey they played me anyhow and even asked me to go up to varsity mid season.
Many eons pass. I was up around 300 after living in Texas a couple years. After some recent favor with the weight I was finally able to not put the second row of the medical scale up to 250 which to me was a pretty big deal.
