Models moving slightly forward in edit mode?

I was working on a model and a bit after rigging it to another model’s bone, I noticed that when i switched to edit mode, the model would move slightly forward and lean down a bit
I checked the model it was attached to, and sure enough it was doing the same thing
I selected the bone group and edit moded that, and sure enough my model, and the other model were leaning the exact same degree and distance.
but only one is visually affected at a time in edit mode when not editing the bone groups. how do i fix this?
