I have come to a conclusion based on the Science of Amyology. What? You've never heard of it? I promise, it's based on some very sound scientific principles. Cross my heart.
So, anyhoo, I've been thinking about the print outs I get at the doctor's office when I get weighed in. Oh, hey, I never looked at the one last time. I'll have to go dig it out later and compare between my last two visits. Anyhow, I digress...
It said that my fat-free mass was 155 lbs, which means my muscles and organs and all the good stuff - basically everything but my fat - weigh 155 lbs.
And my goal weight is 173 lbs (24.9 BMI). If I maintained the same level of muscle I have now when I get to that weight, I'd only have 18 lbs of fat on me, which would be about 10% fat!
I know that ain't happenin'.
However, moreso than that, applying the very sound Amyology scientific principles, I have discovered that I really am kinda fit and fat. Heck, I have 155 lbs of solid muscle (and organ and what-not) under all these layers of fat!
Which kind of leads to my next point. Obviously, I am not too out of shape, as I haul around 300+ lbs every day. I'd like to see some of the skinny minis I come across every day do that!
So, there you have it. One of the first conclusions from Amyology. You really can be fit and fat!
(PS - I know I am not really fit, but it makes me feel better to think about how if I can just maintain most of my muscle as I lose the fat, I'll be in pretty good shape!)
