A Plateau?

I returned from a trip last night. This morning, I hopped on my scale to find that I've lost almost no weight in almost two weeks. I then proceeded to do measurements. Even though I haven't lost weight, my waste shrunk by one more inch and my hips by two inches. Also, my ketostix test showed ketones in my system which indicates that I am indeed burning fat. It appears that weight alone is a very poor indicator of fat loss. I suppose the lack of weight loss may be due to retaining extra water or perhaps the high protein diet has caused me to put on more muscle? Either way, I'm sticking with the diet and hope to see the weight coming down over the next few months.
