Fat vs. Muscle
Here is a good visual of the difference in density of fat and muscle tissue. Both weigh five pounds. With regular strength training you will gradually lose fat (especially if you have created a net Calorie deficit) and build muscle tissue. Your clothes will fit better, but the scale might not show much change. I am sure most of my clients would want to weigh the same but lose one percent body fat, than lose a few pounds and not see any change in body fat. I know I would.
