Thanks Mike.
The 11.5% is a great number, but I fell short of my goal number of 10%.
No biggie tho, I also didn't factor in the holidays....

The next test will be in August, that gives me plenty of time and better weather to work out in.
The next goal will be a 4.4lb fat loss with a target weight of 155.6Lbs.
The chart says this will put me in 9% bf range.

I also found out my new resting metabolic rate,it was 1888 and it's now 1892.

I'd like to find a Bod Pod and compare the results.

Check out the body fat calculating guide by a woman named Leigh Peele. She goes into the research on all available methods. Worth the free read if you are going to drop cash.

Finally had the opportunity to do this today!

Apparently I am at 18.8%. My goal was to be below 20%, so that feels good. I know you guys are posting awesome numbers, but for being 43 years old, female, and in shape for the first time in my life, I'll take the number I got . Supposedly it's the 90th percentile for my age and sex and in the "athlete" range.

So I say I passed my test.

Now, I've got to keep it up!

Cool! You did it! Just saw your post & congrats on the great numbers

Did you find it hard to blow out all the air out of your lungs while underwater?
I hate that part

Yes, and apparently I didn't do it fast enough; I stopped, then started blowing again. Once I got the hang of it, it was okay, but I kept thinking I would pass out getting rid of all the air...

I still don't exactly understand the science behind it, but I trust it.

I think it's a buoyancy thing- fat floats, the less air in the lungs the more accurate the results will be.....I think

Cassie that is super! You are, indeed, in superior shape!
But... I hate to sound like your mother (as noted in other threads), s'plain to me why you stess about a pound or 2? It looks like you are exactly where you should be - an athelete! I mean wow, anything below 20% is worth celebrating in a big way!

Honestly, guys, I think it's the fear of sliding all the way back down the slippery slope if I start letting go a little bit. I fully agree it's not a rational thought and I'm working on it.
