Coming Back to Fat Secret
So I joined this site in November 2012, but couldn't really understand how things worked. The entry process is simple enough its just all the numbers I don't understand. For example: I ate 2123 kcals today (2/11/13) and I had an exercise kcal of 2526, that leaves me with -403 kcals. Is that what is supposed to happen? Should that number be bigger or smaller, does that number not really matter, because it depends on what you eat? Any answers would be great.

RDI Question
I am new to this site and just want to double check my understanding. The RDI is how many calories you need to maintain weight correct? Not how many you should consume to lose weight. If someone can explain it that would be great.

Getting a good scale
So yesterday i weighed myself, and then today I weighed myself at approximately the same time as the day before and i gained 3 pounds. Now I know that different things play into weight loss/gain like going to the bathroom and how heavy your clothes are, but I feel like it shouldn't change by 3 lbs. Any suggestions on a good scale to purchase that is maybe more reliable?
