Do you remember Oprah and the little red wagon? In November 1988, the daytime television host wheeled out a little red wagon on-air filled to overflowing with 67 pounds of fat— equal to her weight loss – instantly creating an iconic (if devisive) moment in TV history. While I am not planning on a little red wagon moment anytime soon, I have been making a concentrated effort this summer to shed a few pounds, work out more regularly, and in general, become healthier. One way I’ve found to make tracking my progress much easier is my new Ozeri Body Tape Measure and Body Fat Test Caliper Combo Pack. Not for the faint of heart (at least at first!), this combo pack includes a Body Tape Measure for waist, thigh, arm, and other measurements, as well as a Body Fat Test Caliper to confirm weight loss progress.
My initial measurements were just the wakeup call I needed (and I’m not planning on sharing them anytime soon!). But, at least the Body Tape made it easy. The tape measures up to 78 inches (200 cm), and features push-button locking and retraction for easy and accurate measuring.
The Body Fat Test Caliper was also an eye opener. The caliper employs a simple method of determining body fat – without any complex electrical or battery-powered devices. I suggest that you take several measurements until you are consistent with the caliper. Then use the body fat chart which categorizes and helps you understand your body fat levels based on height, sex, and measurements.
As part of an ongoing fitness regimen, and in combination with my Ozeri Digital Scale, this really can’t be beat! All measurements can be taken in the privacy of your own home. And, the tools don’t even require the help of another person. Plus, Ozeri offers a 100% Hassle-Free Satisfaction Guarantee. Retail $9.95
If you’re trying to get bikini-ready this summer, the Ozeri Body Tape Measure and Body Fat Test Caliper Combo Pack is a must-have. And really, what do you have to lose… except the fat?!
