Have it tested again elsewhere JC. Caliper testing is only as accurate as the person administering it. At least I can feel better about being lighter than you, I'm not as much a blubber butt. :0p

I think I will. I read that the skinfold tests are notoriously innaccurate, up to (5%). So I could either be 25% or 15% body fat. I was tested by a friend of mine who is a personal trainer at Ballys and she tested my tri. (the lady who did it yesterday didn't do my arms) Anyway my friend tested me about 5 years ago and I came up w/ 13% I know I haven't fatted up, so I dunno.

I was tested about a month ago with calipers and was told that I had 31% body fat. I asked "Where?"
