    I agree with 405, over 20, If I had to take a guess it's somewhere between 26-28% range, maybe even higher.

    why guess?

    pry open that dusty wallet of yours and get yourself a set of BF calipers. the more check points, the better the read.

    calipers are under $10 on amazon. then you can check the 9 places and your gtg..

    op- welcome and get on a good diet program, there is so much to learn on this forum

    I agree that you should get a caliper but my guess is 28-30. caliper is much more accurate than people guessing based on a picture though.

    from my understanding calipers lose their accuracy once u get above 20%bf.. there is a machine called a "bod pod" that is the most accurate way to determine bf% (even moreso than calipers).. in ur case itd be the best approach to finding out IMO.. google it for ur area.. usually in a doc office.. cost about $35 US.. not bad..
