Now for some reason, that seems a little weird to me. I went from 153 to 143! :-) but the inches r not I'm my side. This seems pretty rare! Is it? I may have more questions later after work. Have a great Tuesday!

The answer can probably be found in your food plan. How low calorie are you going?

I am trying to stay at about 1300! I guess I can't really complain! Atleast the scale is on my side. It just seems as though inches would fade away if the weight does. I need to do my research :-)

Hi Cinnamin,

Your cals are too low....you should be between 1600-1800. Inches will come off. Depending how your weight it is, sometimes it will shift......upper ab area to lower....this is common after 1 month or so. Be happy you lost the lbs. and keep working hard. I would look at your nutrition though.......I think you need to up your cals, as your body will go into starvation mode and self cannibalize.

That's why I asked. It definately sounds like your body is self cannibalizing. Losing weight but not inches. Should be the opposite. Sounds like you're retaining fat and losing muscle. Body is probably retaining water as well.

Coach Jeff is spot on. Increase your calories. Make sure you're getting plenty of protein as well.

You don't want the "skinny fat" look.

When I did TF, I lost a ton of inches and not as many pounds. I made sure I would NET 1200 calories a day. If I burned 500, I'd eat a total of 1700. That is what worked for me. I always ate back my exercise calories. You took your measurements before you started?
