Re: Need help with losing inches !!
Patience and time. Keep your diet clean and keep to your workouts. The body stores fat in the stomach area first for most people and it will be the last to go. You can lose fat while not losing any weight, as such. Remember that muscle is denser than fat...so you could be losing bodyfat, lose inches and still not weigh much more than you are now.
This is something I learned after losing 60lbs of bodyfat in a year taking a strength/resistance class. After being 245 (and more) for nearly 33 years, I finally got down to my premarriage clothes sizes....but according to the scales I weighed more than I was back then. Was frustrated at first. Then I realized what happened....I had gained some muscle lifting 3 days a week on a split schedule during that time. Also changed what diet I had to a proper one. Between the two, I increased my metabolism burning the fat and built muscle too. Lost several inches and now wear the same size jeans I wore just before marriage.
Once I understood this, everything was fine. This I can live with.
