Does muscle really weigh more then fat? When should one stop fixating on the numbers on the scale and concentrate on inches lost?
Is it possible when my weight did drop what it was actually muscle that I was losing due to poor eating.
I am just so discouraged by the numbers on the scale right now!
Please help ! I know someone has some words of wisdom and all comments or suggestions would be gratefully appreciated! Thank you!
