body fat percentage goal?

He claims if obese then aim for 20% -- so 20% it is for me. Based on pictures, I'm guessing I'm 30 to 35% now.

Total Inches (TI)

one tool to measure from 4 hour body is Total Inches (TI):
* both upper arms (mid-bicep)
left = 13
right = 14.25
waist = 44
hips = 45
left thigh = 23
right thigh = 23.5
TTI = 162.75

www.fourhourbody.com a new book by Timmothy Ferris

okay - I do like this author.  I think I'm going to get started.

According to his book, I need some before stats to benchmark my progress. I'm having some trouble finding a DEXA or DXA scan in Omaha. I let you know what I find.

stay tuned....

getting back in the saddle

I haven't weighed myself since the last post, so I might be wrong, but I feel like I'm doing well. I've joined the McKesson weight loss club, and I find it fun to receive the daily emails with suggestions and tasks.

Might be getting ill though - worried about that; we'll see.
