I have not actually gained weight and lost inches, but I have hovered at the same weight while the inches came off.

And by the way...gratz on the 3"!! emoticon

From what I've read and understand, yes, you can gain muscle weight while dieting and exercising. Most diets I've ever been on always took measurements due to this fact. If you're "gaining" weight on the scales but losing inches, you're all good.
The more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn so keep pumping and eating right and you're on the right track to a healthier lifestyle.
Hope this helps, Im no expert but have read alot about this issue, I'm even going through the same thing. I lost 6 lbs the first 2 weeks but I wasn't exercising yet. The week I started exercising, I'm up 2 lbs. It can be very discouraging if you just look at the scales but I know my clothes are already fitting better and I just feel better moving.
Keep up the good work.
Marilyn

ok, so call me paranoid, i'm hoping someone will confirm this very weird reading today has somthing to do with muscle gain, not the fact my body is screwed up and hates me.

Muscle weighs more than fat, but to this degree??? The first time i started spark people i had been doing strengh training for 3 months before weighing my self and loosing weight.

has any one else had somthing like this?

EDIT: Uh, nevermind, my scales were lieing to me... panic over *feels foolish* But it does raise an interesting question, does anyone see a gain in weight as they start building muscle before they start loosing weight?

You just have to keep trying, one day at a time, I guess.
