    Killin' it, mk! Every time I stop in you've hit a new goal, haha! congrats

  8. Thanks gokix! Trust me it has not been easy. Has been many times when I ask my self at the gym why the fudge I'm doing this. But I know the end results are going to be well worth it. Plus the bonus of an healthier life.

  9. Ok since reaching 195lb I decided to bump my calories from 1800 to 2030 until I reach 185lbs afterwards I will bump it to maintance 2530 and see how that treats me.

  15. Nice progress man!
    Which omaron scale are you using? And how is the bf% measurement compared to your caliper measurements?

  16. Thanks! I'm useing the HBF-514. The B.F reading on the scale can be all over the place is kinda frustrating.one day it could read 13% the next it could be 15% I have not figure out why. Water weight?? The calipers are more consistent but their is also a lot of room for user error. Their is days that I get the same readings on both scale and caliper

  17. Scales that measure body fat send a mild electric current through you when you stand on it, or hold it, and calculate the time it takes to travel.
    Since electricity takes the shortest distance between two points, the kind you stand on ends up measuring the body fat in your lower body only,up one leg and back down the other. The kind you hold only measure your upper body, up one arm and down the other.
    Because of this they are almost always wildly inaccurate.
    You are better off using Skin fold calipers.
    Peace

  18. Ok so in tha case of the scale that I use it also has a handle you hold. So would it go up your legs and down your arms? So if that's the case why so much fluctuation?

  19. Because the water in your body fluctuates, muscle is primarily water, the skin holds water, the blood etc.
    Their is little to no water in adipose tissue.
    The water in your body effects the current.
    Again most are highly inaccurate, you can do as good a job just looking in the mirror and guessing.
    To track your progress a simple tape measure and a mirror are going to be your best tools.
    By the way your making great progress, keep it up.
    Peace

  20. Thank Todd for the info and compliment .

  21. Cool your replies helped me as well. I was asking because I was thinking of buying one of those scales - but only if it was accurate. I guess I will stick to my calipers.
    Thanks Tod and mk
