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.

I have fit bit ionic and I really like it. it keeps me where I need to be for my sleep. Plus I love to know how many floors I went up for the day. it tells me how active I have been for the day.
