I’ve posted a couple times to this forum asking questions regarding my diet and I’ve gotten some much needed help which I thank you all for.
But now I have a new problem. I’ve been following T-Dawg 2.0 for 13 weeks and I?ve gone from 165lbs to 138lbs. pretty good huh? The only problem is that I?m 5’8 and still don?t see my abs!
I’m not sure what is going on anymore…I haven?t been getting regular b/f tests but that is because I cant afford $35/per test. I’m a student and I support myself 100% so I can?t go off budget.
My performance in the gym has suffered only when I’ve switched programs and then switched back again. I find that I can’t do the same weight that I used to do but I think that is due to 1) low energy levels because during the duration of the program (6-weeks) my strength stays constant and 2) psychological.
I’ve been taking monthly update shots and when looking at those pictures and comparing them to the previous ones I look just as ‘big’ as I did before but with out the extra fat.
What is really frustrating is that when I stand still I can’t really see them and if I?m standing still and I flex my abs it is even worse. But if I?m doing anything like walking or putting on a shirt I can see them perfectly!
I’ve always been having 1.5g protein/bw lb and I?ve always been doing ab work 3 times a week and I?ve been drinking 4-6L of water daily.
My only thought is that maybe my skin has been stretched out so it needs time to shrink but I know that I?m reaching!
So please if you have any ideas please let me know.
P.s - if it helps I can post my before/after pictures.
