I'm on a weight loss plan, 2lbs per-week surplus for about 3 weeks now. Some days I have pretty low calories.

To my surprise, my weekly weighin showed 0 loss in weight, but my pants are much looser. It doesn't make any sense because I'm in a 7000 calorie 2lb a week deficit. My strength and lifting weight has gone up too. Seems impossible. Especially since some days are around 1450 calories.

Maybe I'm still having newbie gains.

If your strength has gone up, then you gained muscle. Muscle weighs much more than fat.

I think you mean muscle is more dense than fat. A pound of muscle and pound of fat both weigh the same.

Thanks :augenroller: I was referring to volume. Obviously a pound equals a pound. Maybe this is clearer:

What is your fat percentage? Your overall body weight is not precise enough.
