Default Lean Body Mass and Body Fat Question

Hi. Searched previous threads and was unable to find an answer or description on lean body mass loss as it is related to body fat loss so....

Today at week 5, I am pleased to say that I have lost a total of 23.5lbs! HOWEVER, I asked my coach to re-measure my body fat. The measurements showed that while I lost about 2.5% of body fat from initial measurement, I also lost about 8lbs of what was called "lean mass" from my initial lean mass measurement.

Can someone please explain this to me? I was not completely comfortable with the explanation I received.

Thanks!

Kara; Thanks so much for the answer. I knew that the handheld were not the best guide for measurement but certainly was concerned.

Appreciate the reply!!!!
