Default So Confused!

I use an electronic scale. I weigh myself frequently, always at the same time of day in the same place. The scale says my weight is going down. Its BMI calculator, which I know isn't accurate but IS consistant, says I have gone from overweight to normal weight (I haven't, but this seemed to correspond with my weight going down in numbers). However, my parents told me I've been consistently GAINING weight, saying I look heavier and heavier. They're not trying to be rude, just concerned. I haven't changed anything about my diet or exercise routine drastically and don't have any health problems like diabetes (I got the bloodwork done).

Why is my weight going down but my appearance getting larger?

Compare how your older clothes fit. Take measurements. Either way should show what's really happening to your size.


Life style change started on Jan 13, 2011. I was going to lose 100 pounds by Christmas.
I lost 93 pounds by Oct 1, 2011 and am holding there for now. We'll see what happens.
New goal: To maintain at about 160 Final Goal: To decide if I need to lose more
Just Keep On Keepin' On
