Hey, been lifting for 4 months, nearly 5. Have gained 2 stone and 12 pounds, and am gaining strength every session.
I for the last 3 weeks have been thinking: I can do with losing some gut now! So have started a low carb high protien diet. Concentrating on carbs in the morning to break my fast and carbs after a workout, no other time if I can help it. So far have lost one pound! Down now to 13 stone and 6. Which to be honest, made me feel bad for the wrong reason. I want to still be growing deep down and cant deal with watching the weight go down, and now have noticed red stretch marks on myt triceps.
Are these there because i am losing weight, or have they been there since I gained it?
need words of guidance and encouragement guys, sad but true
