What do you guys guess my body fat % to be? What do you think I need to develop? I'm not trying to get huge, just a little more in proportion. This pic is after waking up, so I'm looking a little flat <img src=" title="Smile" />

Around 10 I'd imagine.

Legs, else they wouldn't be hidden like that!! Feel free to prove me wrong! :grin:

11-14% I would say. Look fairly proportioned, work on everything.

I'm not too bothered on the legs side of things, as it gets too hard to find clothes for my waist size. I also do a lot of running, so I don't like killing them the same as my upper body. In saying that I love squats and deads, but not too sure how good they are for me as I'm quite tall.

Not as bad as I was expecting re: Quad size!
But would change my guess to 12% as you seem to store more on your legs than upper body. Suggest you get calipers done to find out roughly what you are - people store BF differently, e.g. my friend who has abs at 12% but has fat on his back n tri's, whereas I'm down below 8 before I remotely have any abs showing.

Yeh I used to be obese around 140kg and the fat has never quite gone from my legs. I'm not even sure how to diet for that and was wondering if it is left over hormonal fat storage, cause it's damn hard to lose.

I doubt its that? People just have different "stubborn areas", tho I'm sure a naturopath will tell you its hormonal (or blood type based or similar shit).
Just keep the BF coming off slowly and steadily and it'll go in the end! Looks like you know how to do that - well done on coming done from 140. :clap:
