Can anyone tell me why?

I have gained 5-6 lbs but my regular clothes are getting baggy and loads of people have commented to say I'm looking a lot thinner and closer friends have even said gaunt sad

I am under a lot of stress but I eat a balanced diet and don't make a huge effort to excessive but I do a lot of running around to appointments and after DS3.

Any ideas?

More activity = building (denser) muscle, but losing inches?

I don't move a lot tbh.

I think it's maybe body changing shape? I seem to have gained a pot belly but look thinner in my face and legs. confused

Get checked out. Extra weight may be fluid retention, especially if you are feeling unwell. Could be several reasons but needs medical investigation.
