I know that the scale is not the most reliable method to measure progress, so when it holds steady or goes up a pound, and I've been exercising and meeting my calorie quota I know it is probably lying.
They say taking body measurements is more reliable. I find it is, but only sort of. Short of tattooing lines on my body, it is very difficult to be sure you are measuring in the same place this week as you did last week. Consequently I find my calves may have been 13.25 last week, but 13.50 this week, and 13.25 again next week. My hips are the only thing that I seem to get close to consistant measurements on. This is all very annoying.
