Take for example both of these pictures of me. I weight the same weight in both pictures, however, to myself I feel I look like I weigh less in the picture on the right than I do in the picture on the left. I think the difference is I have 5% less body fat that I do on the left. Still the same scale weight but my body fat has decreased.
I think it's not as important to look at the scale but to also look at your body fat and see the changes there too because that is going to make the biggest difference.
