Great pictures--Muscle takes up 1/3 the space that fat does--and of course muscle weighs more than fat. You also need muscle to burn fat.

I workout with a young woman--who is in great shape--not an ounce of fat on her. She keeps telling me she weighs 142 pounds at 5'3" and she discouraged thinking she should weigh less. I keep telling her she really looks like she's around 120 pounds, and certainly doesn't need to lose weight. If she did lose any weight she would look like a bean pole.

Meaning you can't depend on the scale for all your weight loss needs. A lot of people who just are starting an exercise program actually gain a few pounds at first just because of the muscle they're building. The way to get around the scale is to take measurements of your body--prior to starting a program--and if the scale doesn't do what you want it too--re-measure yourself for inches lost. You'll notice it first in the pants you wear--and be proud of that new found looseness around your waist. After a month to six weeks of regular--consistent excercise--you'll see the scale starting to cooperate with you. And remember pounds lost slowly--stay off --if you stay consistent with your eating habits and exercise routines. "Eat less--move more."
