    Hi
    i am a bit puzzled by my weight loss, now !About three years ago i stopped having contraceptive injection Depo provera as i was putting on a lot of weight and i reached just under 22 stone (i am 5ft 10 in)I did not diet or exercise as i found it difficult to diet ,However to my delight my weight started going down without doing any diet or exercise and last year i reached 19 13 LBs,Which was very good considering i did weigh 22 stone and was not dieting or execising,so it did seem a very good move comeing off depo provera as it is known for causing a lot of weight gain ,Now i am really puzzled !over the last year i was delighted to feel that my weight was still comeing off and my clothes were getting a lot looser on me and i found a jacket i could not put on last month i am now able to get into and work colleagues and family say i look a lot thinner!I dident weigh myself for a long time .However i did decide to weigh myself last week thinking going by the looseness of my clothes i would have lost quite a bit of weight, and that comeing of Depo provera had improved my metabolism Imagine my dissapointment when i got on scales i found i weighted 19stone 9lbs.Only two pounds less than my lowest recorded weight nearly a year ago but going by my clothes i felt like i had lost a lot more.I felt my skirt getting even looser and i though oh well perhaps some more come off,but found i had gained 2 1b and gone up to 19 stone 12lbs only a 1lb less than last year though i can tell i am a lot thinner than last year as my clothes getting very much more loooser and everyone tells me they can see i am a lot thiner both in my body and face.but scales not reflecting this weight change! very strange,I now i am very lucky to loose inches especially given the fact i am not dieting or exercising but really puzzled i am so much thinner but scales only now showing a 1 lb loss!I know you can loose inches and not weight when you exercise a lot and build muscle as muscle tissue a lot heavier,But i dont exercise and have not built muscle,i wondered if anyone else had experienced this strange phenonmen? or had any ideas as to why this is happening that i am loosing all this weight in inchebes but scales not reflecting this?

    Maybe you are exercising more than you think if your lifestyle has become more active. Maybe walking around more etc. Also, are you eating better? It's easier to lose weight the larger you are, and so just small differences in your lifestyle could be causing those changes. Also maybe you've kicked started your metabolism. I wish we all had your luck!
