50lb of Fat

Last week we bought a new scale that also measures body fat composition.  My numbers were nice and even: weight of 200lb with 25% body fat.  Yes, that’s 50lb of fat!  According to the pamphlet that came with the scale, this is “high” for my age group; 11-14% is “excellent”, 14-19% is “good”, 19-24% is “moderate”, 24-29% is “high” and above 29% is “very high”.

My measurements weren’t too surprising, since I haven’t done any exercise, other than walking the dogs, since the baby was born, and have certainly had enough to eat.  Still, knowing the actual numbers, especially the body fat percentage, makes the fact that I have become quite out of shape nice and tangible.

Soon it’s time to get back to exercising, now that we’ve more or less adjusted to life with baby.  It’s time to start planning a hockey team for the fall, and perhaps dust off the bicycle in the garage.
