So I’ve been lifting for around a year on and off due to financial reasons, but finally have a whole year of uninterrupted lifting ahead of me.
5’10, 200 lbs right now. Used to weight ~245 last summer, but started hitting the gym and lost some weight.
The only place where I haven’t lost is my love handles- they just seem to keep getting bigger.
I did blood tests a while ago to check blood sugar levels, gonna post the results just in case:
Glucose Serum Fasting: 5.1 mmol
3.6-6.0 - normal fasting glucose
6.1-6.9 impaired fasting glucose
6.9 provisional diagnosis of diabetes
Hemoglobin A1C - 0.052
Non-diabetic; 0.040 - 0.060
Optimal Control < 0.070
Sub-optimal control 0.070 - 0.084
Inadequate control: >0.084
I got my test level checked just in-case
Mean Range is 7.6 - 31.4 nmol/L
Currently on EC stack, started lifting again on a 500 cal deficit.
Body measurements are as followed:
Waist : 39 inches (I wear 34 jeans though… maybe I did it wrong?)
Hips ; 42.5 inches
I got broad shoulders for someone with not that much lifting experience, but the manhandles ruin it for me. I couldn’t care about having a gut, but those things make me so self conscious about taking my shirt off.
What should I do
