Why are the numbers on the scales not changing?

I happen to have 2 scales at home. One just reads your weight, the other, weight, BMI and body fat. One day, I decided to weigh myself on both scales and noticed that they gave me different results.

Creating good habits

Creating good habits

Actually creating good habits that you’re able to stick to takes a lot more than some people realise. The ones who do realise just how much have either tried and failed, or are the ones who have found some great ways that work for them to do this. I personally still struggle at times to keep up with all my…
