None the wiser

So, in 2.5 months of going to the gym I've lost 1% body fat. Big whoop. Not impressed. Lost a few more cm around the measurements on last time, but some of that felt rather like the tape being pulled too tightly. Of course, I don't have the data so I'll have to ask for it again. I'm glad my trainer took the time to find a bio-impedance body fat measuring machine as that made me a bit happier about comparing consecutive results. Still. I want the full data and I need to have a think about what I want to do with this stuff.
