The scales don't tell you the whole picture - your weight is less important than your percentage of body fat when it comes to appearance, fitness, and health. Tracking your percentage of body fat better shows how you are doing with diet and exercise than measuring weight. Remember that weight is measuring not only your fat, but also you muscles and your bones. If you did some extra work at the jym, your body weight might be effected (muscle tissue is heavier then fat tissue).

Go and have a Body Mass Index(BMI) test. You will come to know how much fat you have and also how fit you are.
You can also look at the weight decrease from measuring body weight.
You can realize it visually too. But BMI is the best.

Understanding Your Readings
Healthy Range Indicator
(Please note this function is only applicable on adult mode, as no standard healthy ranges have been established for children and athletes.)
Your body fat monitor/scale instantly compares your body fat reading to the healthy range chart. Following your body fat reading, a black bar will flash across the bottom of the display, identifying where you fall within the body fat ranges for your age and gender.
(-): Underfat; below the healthy range. Increased risk for health problems
(O): Healthy; within the healthy body fat percentage range for your age/gender
(+): Overfat; above the healthy range. Increased risk for health problems
(++): Obese; high above the healthy body fat range. Greatly increased risk of obesity related problems.

Fat percentage question


Some body fat percentage levels are more culturally valued than others, and some are related to better health or improved athletic performance. Ideal percentages are also based on age categories as well. The recommended amount for women is 20-25% and for men is 8–14%. You can find a more detailed body fat percentage chart at your local dietitians and nutritionists, and on the internet.

Body fat scale Question


Like all body fat tests, body fat scales don't actually measure your body fat percentage. They determine your body density. The examiner (or the scales) then uses a formula to calculate body fat percentage based on body density. These formulas just predict your body fat. Unfortunately there is no one formula that accurately predicts body fat for the whole population. Differences in age, gender, ethnicity, body size, and fitness level all have a significant affect on the results. Well, whether body fat scales measure your "true" body fat percentage or not doesn't matter! As long as they can accurately monitor changes in your body composition over time, that's all you need.
