June 25, 2013-Confused

I'm so confused how is it the I am loosing weight but gaining inches not many inches but still?

Member Comments About This Blog Post:

    Usually when you gain muscle you gain a bit of weight and lose inches - since muscle weighs more but is smaller than fat. Do you measure yourself or have someone else measure you? I'd also be interested to know where you are gaining inches. If it's in your middle section, it could just be bloating. OR (cause I've seen it happen) be sure that you aren't "sucking it in" when you measure! Sucking it in will give you inaccurate measurements every time. :)

I work part-time at Curves and it's important to not measure yourself too much because your body will fluctuate throughout the day & month. If you measure more than once a month maybe cut back to just once a month instead.

Congrats on the weight-loss!

    I have to agree that maybe it's muscle. Maybe you are getting toned up, even if you don't see it.

    Could it be muscle mass? Our bodies are constantly changing, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. Keep making those healthy choices.
