I think the viseral fat, muscle & fat % and BMI are more important as you get close to your goal weight. Also, if you're a small or medium frame, I would think another 10 lbs would be the max you'd want to lose.
Funny you should say that. I have an Omron on its way. It should arrive tomorrow. It is a handheld one, which is what they use at my clinic. Another number they say is important is hip to waist ratio. It should be no more than .75 and mine is at .78.
