Redmuse - If you're being weighed on one of the scales that shows fat, water, etc. those things are notoriously inaccurate. Of course you can't lose 4 lbs and have 8 of it be fat - unless you somehow magically turned 4 lbs of fat into muscle or lean body mass in a week.

I'd not worry too much about it, the way your clothes fit, the inches you lose, and the way you feel are much better indicators of how you are doing - the scale is only one measure of progress.
