Hmmm....here's my guess
the scales may not have gone down due to increase in muscle mass (I'm 10kg heavier than my sister but the same height and fit into the same size clothes since I have more muscle)
Your measurements going down obviously will make your current wardrobe fit better, but perhaps you are trying on different styles in the shops (or different brands that size clothes differently?). For example, you might have flared trousers in a size 16 K-Mart brand, which now fit like a glove, maybe a bit big, but when you walk into sportsgirl and try on a size 16 bootcut style, they fit your calves perfect, but won't get over your thighs. This made up example would be because Sportsgirl have smaller size standards, and you may have a figure with stocky muscular thighs (like me
) which just don't suit the cut of a bootcut. This can be vice versa too... so someone who had a big belly, but slenderish legs, might try on that pair of flares they always wanted, only to find that they baloon at the thighs and make them look like a clown .
I was shocked/disappointed to discover that although I was anticipating being able to walk into any shop and just buy whatever in my size and it would fit like a dream, even now I'm a size 10 I still can't do that because even skinny people have different body shapes so that what suits one person will not suit another.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
