I went to see my dr last week for my diabetes check. I always have to be weighed when I see my dr. It's part of what they do along with the vitals. Here I was thinking I lost some weight because my clothes are fitting differently, some are now actually fitting and some are getting looser. I thought maybe 10 lbs? Wrong answer!! I didn't lose an ounce! My weight was exactly the same as it was in May!!! Although I am burning off fat and my belly is smaller, I've also been building up muscle. I believe there is also some water retention. I was disappointed as I had hoped to see some loss on the scales. But, I know it's coming off and that's more important that what the scales say, I guess. It is encouraging that some of my clothes are getting loose. I'm also able to get into some clothes I couldn't months ago. So, I'll keep working at it and one day it will have to show on the scales that I've lost weight!!!
