I woke up today looked in the mirror and thought… bloody hell I look soft, I must have put on some weight at least… maybe i’m up from 164 to 167 or something, so I go to the scale and see… 159.8lb! now, i know it could be for a load of different reasons but this is pretty depressing considering-
I’m eating at least 6 meals a day and 200g+ protein, which for a guy of my size should be plenty…
My weights are going up in starting strength, even though they are still very weak
Weight training is absolutely my priority, not even college work/lessons gets as much time as all the research, eating and training I do
I have not drank alchohol in 3+ weeks to try and maximise my gains and ultimitely, look better.
So in the mirror, i’m looking worse fat wise, and on the scale, I weight less. I do not understand.
It’s really getting me down, i’ll still be giving it 100% in the weight room and never missing a meal… but it’s hard times being 160lbs, and bordering on non-visible abs, all too close to skinny fat for my liking. dont flame me for “trying to keep abs” either, because i certainly dont have a case of that
