Why you are losing weight and not looking like it?
When you lose weight, you could be losing fat, muscles and water. Correct weight loss occurs when you lose the smallest amount of muscle and fat. Too much muscle loss really distorts the body shape. This is what gives the perception of losing weight but not looking like it.
When you lose too much muscle, your shoulders become very much narrower. In fact the shoulders start drooping. This gives rise to the pair shaped body. You may have lost fat in the belly and may also have a smaller waist but the loss of shoulder muscle gives the optical illusion of being over weight. The opposite is also true. You can build your shoulders and give the optical illusion of looking slim even when you may not have lost much weight on your waist.
This is true for women and men. With broader shoulders, women have a more pronounced hour-glass shape.
