I am 5'8" and I am around 120lb-125lbs. I am 20 years old and I am basically the same weight as I have been throughout high school, yet I can't wear the same clothes that I did in school. Why is this? It is mainly my pants that can't fit anymore, but my shirts from grade 8 still fit me. I don't understand why this is. How can I not fit the same pants anymore when I am the same weight?

inches and lbs are different measures of weight. Your weight in lbs measures your total body mass consisting of your bones, organs, blood, muscles, tendons, water, fluids, and lastly fat...and these things can all fluctuate in your body as they are metabolized...so your overall weight in lbs may be consistent and varied a little...but the inches on your waist can expand in certain areas depending on water weight fluctuating, gas, building muscle...etc
the weight just adds up how much mass you contain...but inches can vary all parts of the body
also, during your period...girls tend to look more fatter and thicker becuse their uterus builds up with tissue blood and nutrients in order to prepare for a potential pregnancy, (and of course when not concieving, those tissues break down and blood is expelled from the vagina during the time of the month) and you also bloat since water is retained, but once the 5 day cycle is over, you should go back to normal...1
