Starting Points – know where you are Now
In order to record results you need to …..
Either come to us for a Starting Points session to be weighed and measured OR do it yourself….
BODY FAT % – We can measure your body fat – this requires just a few minutes… We are able to do this quick appointment all within your fees. You’ll also discover your metabolic age, internal fat% and much more.
WEIGH IN – use the same scales every time – not more than weekly. The fitter you get the less accurate and meaningful scale weight becomes. Remember muscle weighs MUCH more than body fat – BUT measures about 20% less.
MEASURE – neck; chest/bust; ribs; navel; pubis; thigh; upper arm. We will never ask you to measure in SO many places that you are bound to show inch loss… we ask you to keep your measurements and tell us your success stories as the camp progresses.
Always measure the same side of your body, wear similar clothes, or just your undies.
Where you measure does make a difference so here are a few tips..
Neck – no particular guidelines
Chest – keep the tape level all the way round and on the nipple line.
Ribs – for girls under the bust line, where your bra strap would be.
Navel – this is in line with your belly button.
Pubis – this in line with your pubic bone.
Thigh – just under the fold of your buttock – so quite high up (don’t always go for the fattest bit –as this will move.
Upper Arm – mid way between shoulder and elbow.
If you want to measure your calf – do so. I believe that your calf will reduce if you are very overweight – but will then stay pretty much the same – no mater what you do.
If you feel you would like more help with your food choices, eating patterns and goal setting, book an additional personal session with Jackie.
The best motivator is a photographic record… so find your camera/phone and take front view and side view NOW! Then every 2 weeks take some more. You will be amazed!
Transformation stories are very motivating for everyone trying to make changes, we have a few that you can read, if you want to speak to campers that have tried this fatloss system we can put you in touch.
Good Luck with YOUR transformation
