Why be frustrated.. I always though muscle made us weigh more not true.. What is true muscle and fat weigh the same- however muscle takes up less space than fat..
Look at the different 5 lbs of muscle to fat

The scales not moving doesn't matter, but the fat being burnt off and clothing fitting better is the healthier sign..

I think that is what is happening with me-building muscle. Because I do work out every day but my work out consist of martial arts. There is a lot of strength I need to do certain activities like breaking cinder blocks and multiple boards.I will be adding cardio like a zumba or tae-bo to my daily training. Which I do here n there but not enough*

Thank you all for the good advice.

I think it is different for everyone. I am losing pounds and inches. Although, my stomach appears to show it in inches. Crazy, the human body!

there isn't a magic inches formula that works for everyone. some people lose weight first, some lose inches, and it all depends on their individual burns and sizes.
and measuring tape will help you curb your imagination.

When you lose inches, you are changing your body composition. Muscle is denser than fat, meaning the same weight takes up less space. This is commonly stated as "muscle weighs less than fat" but a pound of muscle and a pound of fat are both a pound, muscle takes up less space, hence lost inches.

My scale isnt exactly budging. I feel very frustrated in that sense. I do however feel my clothes a little bit looser,but either I am letting my imagination get the best of me. As I was getting dressed for work , I swear my pants looked somewhat big on me. I know I should not let the number on the scale determine getting fit. but it would be nice to see the number go down.

I read somewhere you lose inches before you lose weight. Which I am having a hard time understanding, how that would show on the scale.
