Losing Inches but Not Weight
Posted Sunday, November 10, 2013 at 4:29 PM

My weight seems to be staying the same but I've lost an inch or two. Is this normal? I guess I expected the scale to move more. Getting frustrated. Anyone else? Comments?

This is normal. Give it more time. And make sure to weigh yourself at the same time of day with the same amount of clothing.

Hi Whimzee,

Along with Susan's always valuable insights, you didn't give a time frame for your weight loss plan.

A couple of things - first, personally? It has always taken a chunk of time for me to see any change on the scale when I've made a dietary change to budge a few pounds. Yet slow and steady is always the best course when it comes to 'weight' loss - anything really rapid can't actually be 'fat' loss anyway, and what we are looking for is changes in body composition, am I right?

Slow changes are also the ones that tend to last!
