Why are my clothes tighter but I weigh the same?

Why are my clothes tighter but I weigh the same?

One possible explanation is that you've ended up with a different fat-to-muscle ratio. Muscle is about 20% denser than fat, which means that muscle takes up 20% less space. So, if two years ago you had the same weight, but more muscle and less fat, you'd be a little slimmer than you are now.

Why is my waist getting bigger but not gaining weight?

A combination of things happens as we age. We tend to lose muscle mass, so our abdominal muscles aren't as tight as they once were, and the loss of elastin and collagen in our skin allows gravity to have its way so skin starts to sag. Both can cause the waistline to expand.
