So i go to curves to work out. And every month you get measured.

So this morning i weighed myself. 11 stone 1lb. However we all put on a couple of 1lbs during the day...i know that.

So i go to get measured. Im 11 stone 3lbs. Which is fine...a loss of 3lbs since last time. (tho i know im actually 11 stone 1lb first thing in the morning...naked ha).

Then she starts measuring me. In a month..my bust lost 0.25 inches, my hips 1 inch, my thighs 1 inch and my arms 0.25 inches...the rest of me stayed the same. Not too happy about that as ive worked out religiously 3 times a week.

But i lost 3lbs...so im happy.

Then she takes out the evil body fat percentage machine. Which you hold at shoulder height and it scans your body.

And despite me losing a couple of inches...and losing 3lbs...apparently ive put on 0.50% of body fat?!

HOW?! WHY?!!

Im so annoyed i could go and munch a big bar of chocolate. I will make do with slimming world curry but i am MAD. :mad: xx

I wouldn't worry about the body fat machines in curves, I used to work in one & the machines will give the same person 10 different readings! the only true way of calculating body fat is in a body pod machine.

Look at the positives, weight loss and inches lost plus I'm sure you can notice yourself toning up. What did the instructor say about your body fat going up?

She didnt say a thing, the only reason i noticed was when i was walking home and reading the print out they gave me!! I had to correct her tho when she did my weight. She told me i had only lost 1lb and proceeded to start typing that into the computer and i was like "erm if im 11 stone 3lbs by your scales...and i was 11 stone 6lbs last month...then how can i of only lost 1lb?". So she clearly wasnt on the ball today.

So those machines are really rubbish? I was liking it as last month i lost a whopping 10 inches and 7% body fat (it was my first month)...but now im all miserable again!

but yeah your right...3lbs lost....3lbs closer to target :) xx
