Our expert says:
Ironically muscle tissue weighs more than fat tissue, so you could have less body fat, but weigh more. It is evident that if your clothes still fit that you have remained slim and trim. I can only suggest that you consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), to assess 1) your present weight, 2) your present diet to see if you are ingesting too much energy. If your diet should be the cause for your weight gain over the years, then the dietitian will assist you with a weightloss diet prescription.
Don't give up the exercise because it does keep you healthy and fit.
