Have you been working out and lifting weights? It is possible to build muscle and lose inches even if the scale isn't going down. That would be my guess!

It's going to be a long and hard road but I am prepared to do it and I am determined to do it.

First it depends where you shop. Some brands are bigger than others even though they say the size number is the same.

My next guess is what Sasha says. You could be carrying the weight differently than you did before, more in muscle (which is smaller by the pound than fat)

Sizing really isn't consistent from store to store or brand to brand.

I can span across three different sizes depending on brands.

Sizing is completely confusing to me too! And it's not just in numbers, it's the whole small, medium, large thing too!

I have an old pair of capris from two summers ago that are a 16 petite and they are just a tiny bit loose. To compare, I bought a new pair of size 13 regular and they are slightly too snug. I have noticed I can be as small as a 12 petite and up to a 15 regular, depending on cut and style.

Same goes for t-shirts. I can wear anything from a SMALL to an X-LARGE. Seriously? All depending on where I've bought my shirt!
