Weekly Weigh In #19

My husband is questioning whether my skin is interfering with my numbers because I’m losing weight and getting smaller, but the measurements are staying the same. Does that sound right?? I’m thinking of making a doctor’s appointment with my weight loss doc to ask questions like that.
