It's actually sort of the reverse of that--if you're gaining muscle, you may not see the scale go down much, but you will likely notice a change in size faster because a pound of muscle takes up less space in your body than a pound of fat, so by losing, say, 5 pounds of fat but gaining 5 pounds of muscle, you will be smaller, but the scale will stay the same.

Couldn't they find a way to make it all so much easier than this?
