Fat weighs more then muscle. So I suspect the fat is turning into muscle as you get into better shape and tone up

Actually, it's muscle that weighs more than fat. Muscle is denser so an inch of muscle will weigh more than an inch of fat.

I'm assuming that you're working out? Which means that you're losing fat (hence the inches lost) and gaining muscle (hence the weight gained).

I'm not a huge fan of the scale because it only represents mass. It doesn't show what that mass is made of. So while you're down for gaining in reality you've done a great job in losing fat!!

We've all just gotta remember that we're worth more than the number on that scale!

NBE, apparently we were both backwards this morning, because I read what you meant to say and not what you said.

Don't know if I'm late, but here goes...

I'm GG, 5'6", 20 years old, and around 210 lbs. I would love to get down to 160 lbs or so, but right now I am aiming for 180. I was at 180 when I left the farm last June. I was walking 4 miles a day, and working full time in a country butcher shop. Besides of doing chores around home and riding on weekends.

Right now I work part time (almost full time) at a drugstore, and teach guitar three days a week. I am trying get more exercise around home here. I started doing some sit-ups and a couple push-ups every day.
I am taking a pill called PGX Daily, it fills up your stomach so you don't eat as much. I have been taking it for around a month (5 pills ten minutes before each meal), and I've noticed a big difference in how much I eat. My sister says that she can see that I've lost weight. I don't see it, but I feel a lot better and more energetic. So I think it's doing something!
I've cut out cold cereal in the morning, and instead eat some greek yogurt.

Yesterday I spent around 3 hours (2 hours, a break, and then another hour) shoveling snow. I am a bit sore today but hopefully in a couple days that'll go away.

What I am really hoping is that I will be able to fit into size 12 jeans sometime this summer. I was a size 14 and then went up to a size 16.
I start riding lessons again in April. In June I am going to BC for an internship at an endurance farm. I should get my exercise there!

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane

Ugh i've been so sick the last week and a bit I couldn't do anything. I haven't been eating well because I couldn't swallow anything. I couldn't work out because I would go into a fit of coughing. So I fell off the wagon. I haven't gone near a scale and refuse to as I suspect its caught up to me. *sigh*
