Chris and I have decided to start a fitness competition.... The winner at the end of 3 months will get their prize of choice. For me, it's this watch, (or one similar). For Chris, it's a snowboard (just the board, mind you, not the whole giddy-up).
So we decided that since our scale has a body fat feature, we would use that as the gauge. It's probably not the most accurate, but it's just the control, so it should be fine. We both have separate goals; I want to lose a certain poundage, Chris is more into building muscle, even though he does want to lose some also.
My questions is this. Is the body fat scale a good control we can go by? Even though I have less to lose than him, also I'm a girl and (lucky us!) we naturally have more body fat than guys... I've been thinking it over in my head and I go back and forth as to whether or not this method would work. Is there something else that you think would be better? Thanks for any input! :)
