I lose inches in weird places too sometimes. Not that mine is 4 inches, but one time i lost an inch in my arm, and didnt lose any on my waist. The weird part was that i dont even have big arms. I have small arms, small legs, big gut...so why in the heck does my arms and legs lose first? ha ha.
I may not be able to lose 100 pounds, but I can lose 10 pounds 10 times!
