Today was my monthly weigh in and I am definitely confused. I gained weight this month. A pound and a quarter. Grr! I know I really have been trying and tracking and getting plenty of exercise, so I am not happy about this. The part that has me confused is that my waist and hip measurements have both gone down an inch. Yippee!
So, how does one gain weight and lose inches? I am confused, but happy about the loss of inches.

May is a new month and I have asked my husband for help this month, so that I can stick to my eating plan and not "forget". I asked him to remind me if he sees me doing any mindless eating and snacking. I know that quantity of food is my major problem. I tend to have just one more taste of something I like. So, hopefully May will bring me some good results, but I am still wondering. How does one gain weight and lose inches?

    It's probably just an "April thing." I gained two pounds this week and I have been running half (and one full) marathons in the last six months!! Go figure! I'm betting on the muscle thing too.
Keep up the good work!

    You re doing great. Remember that muscle weighs more than fat. So, as your body changes for have a higher muscle percentage, you might see the scale inch up while your measurements. I agree with the others, the scale isn't the best way to gauge your progress. Keep smiling.

    Remember the scale is just a number, but it doesn't say what the number reflects. It could just be excessive water especially if you ate a lot of salt yesterday. I always go by the clothes over the scale.
