I usually keep my increasing activity & my decreasing points on separate scales. I usually increase or change up my exercise a bit every couple of weeks. But, it's all about if I feel the intensity or if I feel that I'm lacking.
If this works for you in the beginning that's great! But for me, at this point, my exercise would be increasing too slowly as it can take a little while for me to lose 10 pounds.
