In this week's RBR newsletter, there's a section devoted to figuring out your ideal weight. The section closes with this paragraph: "Tip! What's the best way to tell if you need to lose weight? Your body-fat percentage can be evaluated in a lab, at your doctor's office or even at your health club. But here's a quicker, easier and cheaper technique. Get naked, stand in front of a full-length mirror, and bounce up and down. If something jiggles that shouldn't, you're carrying too much weight. Don't laugh -- this is often as accurate as fancy lab tests. It won't give you a percentage, but your eyes don't lie."
Anyone got a specific target percentage? I'd like to get to the10-15% range, but don't really know where I'm at right now. Have to remember to go over to the rec center and get a caliper test done for $3.
