Weight lifting makes a HUGE difference. The last time I weighed what I weigh now, I was in size 10's - now I'm comfortable in 6's, some of them are a little loose even. I've been weight lifting for 20+ years and after the 1st 3 weeks on IP, I was in the gym at least 2x a week, sometimes 3 weight lifting. I can see muscles (and also some crepey skin I'm sad to say) now. In fact, my trainer this morning even said, wow, your legs are really cut, you can really see serious definition. So play with your new scale, see what your stats are, that should help with your decision.
