Hm… you may be gaining muscles, your weight is shifting in any case – I would recommend keeping track of various measurements – waist, hips, bust, biceps, thighs and calves, to get a more accurate picture of how your shape is changing.

Hmmm, sometimes this happens to me. (I’ve been losing weight since May. I’m up to 50 pounds lost now!). 


I think the more I stress over it, the harder it is to move beyond. I’m a huge fan of “positive affirmations”. Whenever I go walking I repeat (in my head of course) “I AM A FAT BURNING MACHINE!” “I AM WALKING OFF THE INCHES”. 

I know it’s not a scientific method, but it can’t hurt. If you’re really concerned about it, perhaps your doctor would be able to advise you on your body’s mysterious ways.

That’s really odd! When I lost weight, it was definitely disproportional but I never actually went UP in sizes (expect for my shoes, for some reason my feet got bigger!). So for example, I weigh less now than I did in college, but wear a size bigger in jeans. Darned butt and hip fat!! The only thing I can think of is maybe you are drastically losing in some areas while others are retaining water weight or something? That might account for the scale # to go down and your clothing size to go up.

That has happened to me before too! You think..ok where is all of this weight going if my clothes still fit the same :/ Unfortunately, everyone gains/loses from somewhere different. If there is a specific area you are talking about, I say find some kind of workout you can do targeting those areas for the next month and then see where you are. Good job for losing 15 already!!
