Several months ago, I picked up a Tanita (?) bodyfat scale. I've been keeping track of my progress once a week since I started back into my routine about 5 weeks ago. I started at 228 and 35% (I know, yikes). I checked it last week and I was at 224 and 31%. I felt really good about my progress in the past week, so I stepped on the scale hoping to see good improvement. I stepped on and it showed 222 and 34%. Now, I know these scales are less than accurate, but are they even close enough to use as a guideline?
I know it's possible for bodyfat to go back up, but my diet and workout routine didn't change in the last week. Can someone help me crack the bodyfat mystery?
