I’m posting this in hopes that someone has sage advice for me. Let’s start at the start. I’m 36, and have been lifting seriously for about a year. Not that I’m trying to become a colossus, but I’d like to be in a shape that is other than a beach ball.
Strangely, through lifting I’ve gotten stronger, but not bigger. Even when I was eating “clean” and a lot, my weight and body fat would stay relatively stable.
Since April, I’ve cut 15 pounds and 1.5% body fat with changing my diet. This is a good thing, and I’m a long way from finished. My problem is HOW I’m losing… My watch and wedding ring are too big now. My shirts are too big in the neck and chest. I’m losing at the extremities, while the belly doesn’t seem to be much, if any, smaller. What the heck?
I guess the question is, am I doing something wrong? Is there a remedy?
