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.

Where is a woman's weight loss first visible?

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.

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.

How hard is it to adjust your jeans after you've lost a couple of inches on your weight?

You can get them altered, but it would just be better and cheaper to get a new pair. You can pay a tailor to take in the waist of your jeans or do it yourself if you're handy with a needle. Unless the jeans are very sentimental to you, you'd probably get a better fit for less money by simply buying new jeans. If you lost a couple of inches in the waist, you've also lost inches in the hips and calves and you'll get a better look if you buy jeans that fit your new body.

Your mass (kilograms) would stay the same as it never changes. But if you are talking about weight (newtons) it would depend on what you were comparing it to. If you have a weight of 300 newtons on earth then you would weigh 49.8 newtons on the moon therefore you would have lost weight. Whereas if you weighed 20.1 Newtons on Pluto you would weigh 49.8 newtons on the moon, loosing weight.
