Hi Timzy

Good results, though I do also wonder about the body fat reduction, like Anne on the forum. Just to elaborate more on those numbers, if your body fat percentage was 26.7% out of 92.8 kg, then your body fat weight must have been 24.7 kg. Now, your total body fat weight is equal to 15.6 kg, which means you must have lost 8.5 kg of fat in the last three months. that may be possible, I must confess that I don't know of any numbers that can back this up. It does seem very drastic, because if you have lost 8.5 kg of fat, then in order to have stayed at the same body weight, you would have had to gain 8.5kg of muscle. I am not sure this is possible in so short a time, I must be honest. So I don't want to take away from your results, because I am sure that you are seeing real results there, but I do wonder about the accuracy of the body fat measurement.

But keep it up.
