Thanks for the reply. What is a good body fat % to shoot for? The calipers haven't arrived yet. I am curious. Is it a general % or specific to various body parts? Like legs, 20%, arms 18%, belly 10%? (I'm just making up numbers-have no idea what they should be)
And you are right. Was sick with a bug for a couple of weeks. Dropped to 114 lbs. Felt like crap when I got back in the water. Just now feeling strong at 118 lbs.
I will continue trying to eat more protein. It's hard because I don't particularly "like" protein-y things. My heart belongs to carbs!!
