Shrinking, but no weight loss?
Thursday, June 04, 2009
So, I've been having this weird phenomenon where I am definitely shrinking, but the scale hasn't moved at all. I have less weight around my face and arms; I can fit into pants that I once couldn't; and I've lost an inch from the widest part of my waist.
But then I stepped onto the scale for the first time in ages and found I'd only dropped one pound? I haven't been doing a lot of weight lifting, so it doesn't seem likely the muscle gain would be offsetting the loss of fat. I don't care, cause as long as I look smaller, I could care less how heavy I am, I'm just starting to wonder if I'm going to always have to be classified as "overweight" according to my BMI. That seems so ridiculous.
Does anyone else's body act like this? Where it just picks a weight and refuses to budge?
