i'm about 5' 9.5", ~180lbs, and 17-8% bodyfat. here are the before pics. hopefully i'lll be down to around 13-4% bodyfat in a couple months with hard work. check out my journal in the other section if you wanna help me out with some tips, etc. thanks everyone. :)

You dont look 17-18% bodyfat, you look a lot lower!

You have a very interesting name. Do you like big macs or something?

haha!

i really do love big macs. and junk food in general. i LOVE sweets. :)

however, i will be giving all of that up in my quest for a hardbody.

and don't let the lighting in the pics fool you, i am definitely around 17-8% bodyfat. this was measured with calipers (17.7%), tanita foot bodyfat scale (18.5), and some other step on bodyfat scale (21%!).

on a side note, i just got back from a run and it felt great. :)!

dude I don't think ur using calipers correctly and the tanitas are always reading high.. trust me you are about 14% unless you photoshopped out a beer belly or something..

haha... no beer belly. :) definitely not a 6-pack though, or anything that resembles it. i have really mushy skin, its not apparent with my pictures.

i sell memberships at a gym so i had to get a couple of training certifications, i think i'm using the calipers correctly, but who knows...

thanks for all the replies guys. :)
