        thank you!
        So it says for females measure waist at the point of minimal abdominal circumference between breast bone and belly button - so it is above the belly button, I thought it was below - good to know!
        So even though I am well above my maximum weight I am only 3% above my % - getting there!

          Is it possible to be 29 pounds over my max weight but only 3% over my max body fat percentage?
