I've lost approx. 17 lbs, but I don't see a change when I measure myself. Everyone says that I'm skinnier and that I look a lot lighter than what I actually am. Has this happened to you? Should I wait to loose more weight before I see my measures go down? Any advice?

I'm posting this question again because I already posted it in the wrong thread :$

MAYBE you've lost the 'inner' arterial fat - the dangerous stuff and it isn't showing on the measure? I remember losing a lot last time and the measurement was always the slowest - even losing loads. Weird. But true.

@Fatcity66. The APP shows you how much you are eating and how much you are burning. You should aim at eating less than your RDI if you want to lose weight. Less food + more exercise = weight loss. Con ...
