If you're losing weight correctly, it's probably muscle that's making your weight stay put. Muscle cells weigh twice as much and are twice as compacted as fat cells, and muscle also doesn't show if a layer of fat is over it. And another thing-DON'T SKIP MEALS. You need to lose weigh by excersicing and eating healthy, not starving yourself. And skipping meals slows your metabolism which works against you. Good luck ^_^

If you are losing inches why do you care what number the scale says, people don't see numbers they see you. Also did you ever consider that you could be either a- gaining muscle or b- getting taller?
