So i started doing a pic diary since March and have noticed a massive difference in my weight between pictures from then and now. The scale hasnt been going down though which is why i wont use them again . The best thing to do is a pic diary. You'll definitely notice a difference. Im over the moon just thought id share

Pull ups are a good check as well. If you can do 1 now, 3 next month. That probably means you lost some fat and gained some muscle

Measurements are a good way too track progress. Take a look also at the YMCA bodyfat measurement and others that use tape measurements and ratios that help you judge.

Agree in regards to pic diary. It is much better in regards to seeing changes in your body. Especially as I tend to find it difficult remebering to track changes. Can't really argue with actual photographic evidence!  ^^

Scales can be so misleading. I have only checked recently after months and although it's going in the right direction, I wouldn't  be bothered either way as it could be a number of reasons for that... 

Congrats beautiful! You've been working like a Trojan and deserve this and more!!! :*

I have to use a scale. I gain weight easily. At my age I have to increase activity slower than someone younger.

Yeh its because im doing weightlifting so the scale doesnt show the muscle gains which is why i stopped using them. But some ppl still have to use them.

Scale is just keep fluctuating due to several reasons beside gaining weight. That's why it's not accurate pointer.

Pic diary is a must . Beside body measures. Specially waist line.

I used to get concerned by noticing my weight go down and them up again. But my waistline was the house light for me .and keeps me in a good tracking.
