Body Fat 14%

My body fat percentage is now down to 14%. It’s the lowest I have ever measured.

About 9 years ago, almost 25% of my weight was fat. That got me worried and I had exercised my way to 20.5% fat by New Year 2005, losing 11 lbs (5 kg) in the process.

In another year (Jan 2006), my weight was down a further 10 lbs (4.5 kg) to 158 lb (71.7 kg). My body fat was also down to 17%.

17% was still on the higher end of normal, but it stayed that way for years.

Then last year, I got excited about running and cycling. That is now paying off. I haven’t lost any weight. I am 159 lbs (72 kg) right now but my body fat is down to 14%, lower than my New Year 2005 resolution target of 15%.

I wonder if I can reduce the body fat percentage further to 12%.

Oh and my BMI (body mass index) is 21.3 kg/m2.
