If I must be honest with myself. This week wasn’t a good week. Whilst I was still significantly under the calorie budget I don’t think I ate correctly.

An injury derailed me so I need to pick myself up and go again.
Then you aren't doing too badly. Moving in the right direction is progress!

Something else to be aware of, is you're going to get periods where the scale doesn't move at all. However you'll probably be losing inches during that time, so if you really need to see progress to motivate yourself, then you also need to measure...

I don’t really want to gain weight, just add more meat on my body that’s all.

I picked up Pi.Fit Smart Scale in their Christmas sale and I see they are again on special.

As well as weight you can a track body composition measurements (muscle, water body fat, BMI etc.) in an app on your phone. Very happy with mine so far and service from Pi.Fit and the courier with my order was excellent.

I haven't scientifically validated the readings but I have a pretty good idea of where I am anyway and so far I'm more than happy to take the figures at face value. I believe they have a good degree of accuracy for a home use product and more than adequate for my requirements.

EDIT: The Scales do calibrate themselves each time they are powered on. So far all my measurements are consistent and within credible ranges.
