So I keep bouncing between 235 and 230 pounds. I try not to sabotage myself, but sometimes this happens. Yesterday I noticed that the shorts I was wearing seemed to be falling too low past my waist and near my hips. Today I noticed the same thing with the Capri's I had on. So I had my husband help me measure things like arms, waist, etc. Now most of these measurements are from June 2009. In the upper arm I have gone from 19.5 to today at 16.25, Waist from 46.5 to 45.25. hips from 54.5 to 52, and thigh from 28 to 26. I know muscle weighs more than fat, but I don't think I have worked out enough to build muscle mass. Does anyone have any ideas?

  it is not the intensity of the workout but the consistency that builds muscle.

    Muscle does not weigh more than fat -- 1 lbs of muscle weighs the same as 1 lbs of fat. Muscle takes up slightly less space than fat.

I mean, if you're losing inches and your clothes are fitting differently...that's a good thing, right? Do you not think you should have lost inches because you don't feel you've worked out enough to increase muscle mass? I'm also confused.
