Using the Garrow and Webster equation, I got 31.4 lb and 25% for measured fat and fat percent, respectively, which are both close estimations to my result. My result demonstrates that my fat percent is higher than normal (18-23%). Since I did not exceed the 30%, definition of obesity, this suggests that my fat percentage fall in the range of people who are overweight.
