You might want to get a measure of your percent body-fat. There are several ways you can measure your body fat percentage at home. You can use a bioelectrical impedance device. It is as easy as using your bathroom scale - in fact, many models do come with the bioelectrical impedance analyzer integrated into bathroom scales. Alternatively you can learn to use body fat calipers, which can be trickier to get a consistent reading but are a more direct measure of your body fat.
