I’m 5’ 8", 178lbs.
I want to cut down to the range of 145-160 pound range. I use to weigh 247lbs about 2 years ago and was able to lose the weight. Also joined the military in doing so.
I’ve been going to the gym faithfully for about 2 months(5-6 days a week). I’m starting to get a routine going and feeling more comfortable about working out.
I usually do cardio for 40 mins, then the next 30-40 minutes I do whatever muscle group I have planned.
It would be nice to cut back on the weight, however, losing inches seems to be better considering I like being in the 180 range.
Am I better off to lose more weight to get my BF down? Then build back up in mass?
I currently use whey protein about twice a day(1 scoop per serving). Eat chicken, vegetables, other greens, eggs etc.
I lost 2 more inches off my waist since the middle of September and about 6 pounds. To me not seeing the weight go down on the scale is discouraging, but I guess inches do make up for it.
Anyone had this same problem in the past or known someone that has and accomplished losing the body fat on a decent diet/eating routine? Is it possible to get lean at the same time as losing fat? Any advice helps…
