If you have lost a lot of weight, sometimes your skin won't react as quickly. It could be loose skin that's making your waist bigger. Try toning your midsection. There are tons of "get a tiny waist" exercises in magazines. ITS ALSO POSSIBLE THAT YOU ARE RETAINING WATER.

Based on my personal experience, I've always felt that the smallest part of me lost weight first. I've always had a small waist and, now that I'm trying to lose weight, my waist has gotten smaller. I believe that, if you "diet" properly, you lose weight evenly. However, it will show on the smallest area first.

If you are referring to the past tense, then yes you would say, "I have lost some weight."

Yes, as you work out you are gaining muscle which is said to weigh more than fat. But as you gain muscle you also burn more calories naturally. After seven weeks of working out, I have not lost any weight, but I have lost two inches off my waist and that reminds me that I am moving in the right direction. Waist size is often more important to you overall health than weight in any case.

It depends on what the waist was before.

Lady Gaga has lost some weight and I would round it up to 9 or 10 pounds lost in the past year.
