Re: Training hard but cant lose weight
Muscle is denser than bodyfat and so on the scales, you can look like you are the same or more...but your wardrobe is getting smaller as you lose inches.
I am also 5'6" and 180lbs right now (not sure what that is in "stone"....I think that is 14pounds?) Lost 60pounds lifting for strength at a local college class from 245 over a year ago. Learned quickly not to watch the scales but my clothes instead. Right now, after 33 years of marriage, I am back down to pre marriage clothes sizes but the scales say I weigh more than I did then. (about 165)
Built up some muscle while burning the bodyfat. I dont mind that. Still have to work on my stomach but that is where the body stored the fat first. But its alot smaller than it was in the beginning
