So proud and bummed at the same time...

This is really more of a vent, than a blog, but I figured it couldn't hurt to put it out there.
I've joined a RI effort to improve fitness, it's called "Shape Up RI" and it logs your daily steps, exercise minutes and weight loss. It's somehow motivated me to get back on track. I had gained about 7 pounds since Christmas. Okay, so this new motivation, coupled with my goal of running a 10k this year - I've been running my tail off. In the past there weeks, I've run 63.72 miles. That's so much more than I've ever done before. So I'm souped. I was scheduled to run 5 miles today -- I stopped at 6.2, but could've kept going. I virtually ran my first 10K! I can't believe it. I've doubled my distance in the course of a month and finished the run strong.
So, here's the vent. I HAVE NOT LOST ANY WEIGHT?!? How can you run 20 miles per week and literally not drop a pound?! Are you crazy?! This is not deterring me from running, but it's a bummer none the less. Oh, and please don't tell me muscle weighs more than fat. I'm pretty sure that's not my problem. :)
Ha! What a whiner. Thanks for listening!
