Weight loss and fat loss are not the same thing. You must learn to distinguish between the two. The scale can be very misleading if it's the only criteria you use for measurement. For example, a woman could weigh 105 pounds and have 33% body fat. That's what I call a "skinny fat person." In contrast, a female bodybuilder could weigh 160 pounds and be quite lean, with body fat in the low teens.
With this in mind, your goal should never be weight loss. Your goal should be losing fat while maintaining muscle. As long as your body is solid muscle, then you shouldn't worry about what the scale says. Your ratio of muscle to fat is what really counts. Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle will explain to you all the common methods of body fat testing and teach you how to use body fat to measure your results and chart your progress. You will also learn how to break a plateau and adjust your approach when your body fat isn't decreasing at the rate you want it to.
