I’m a huge advocate of this question: “What do you see when you look in the mirror?”
Let’s be frank: a scale, tape measure, or EIU are tools to measure a means to an end. Unless you’re stepping on stage, making weight for a competition, or upholding some nonsense clause in a contract, your BF% isn’t very important unless a low number is your goal and ego booster.
If you’re getting stronger, feeling better, sleeping better, your lift progressions aren’t stagnating, and you feel FANTASTIC looking in the mirror, then the number(s) are irrelevant. Because hey! No one wears a sign that says, “Hi, I’m so-and-so with this BF%”!
I truly hope you’re still progressing and enjoying the journey to your goals!
Hello Jo Jones,
Congratulations. Were the percentages taken by the same method/person and time of day? You feel stronger and more toned but want to see more weight/inch loss; maybe it is a sign to up the resistance training…talk to your great trainer about increasing intensity. It sounds as if you are on the right track, give it time and enjoy your sessions. Sometimes, not looking for something is when it appears…keep following your healthy lifestyle.
