When you start/increase an exercise program, it is a comon response for your muscles to retain water. This increase in your lean mass can lead to little change in the scale, even as you are burning fat.
However, fat it considerably bulkier than muscle and water, and typically this will show up as inches lost, even if the scale is being unco-operative. The tape is a much better means of tracking your progress than the scale. If you are losing inches, you ARE losing fat.
Take a look at the photo at www.dailyspark.com/blog.asp?post=quiz_how_
for a great image of fat v muscle.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
