I talked to a very nice lady who owned the place and was pleased to see that she was nice and fit, but not too skinny. (I feel more comfortable with people who actually look like they work out owning workout facilities) While I was there I told her that I'd been doing WW and have lost about 40 lbs. She was really excited for me and encouraged the idea of starting an exercise routine. Then she wanted to check my body fat %. Bleah.
Here's how it went down:
Using the Tanita Body Composition Analyzer -
Weight: 190 (a little less than mine this morning - yay!)
Fat %: 40.2%
Fat Mass: 76.4 lb
Fat %: 17-24%
Fat Mass: 23.2-35.81lb
Target Body Fat%: 23%
Predicted Weight: 147.6lb
Predicted Fat Mass: 34.01lb
Fat to Lose: 42.4lb
The downside is that the beginning cost is like $147 with a $33 a month charge. They've got a deal going that you can exercise the rest of the summer for free, but you still have to pay the beginning cost. I really think that I'd like it, but Jeremy is always hesitant to shell out money for something that I might not like. We have a coupon from one of those coupon books here at work for a free week of working out at our Curves - but I don't know if they'll let me use it. We'll see.
Have any of you been to Curves or know anyone that has? I obviously need to lose some of this body fat. Nearly 77 pounds of fat is just waaay too much for me to handle.
Let me know what ya'll think & thanks for all of the encouraging comments!!
