Oh yes I DO realize that which is why I pointed out about the muscle tone. I certainly have been working out a lot , my muscles are feeling it BUT the results of how I look and feel have to trump a number on a scale. My goal isn’t so much to be a certain weight as it is to look and feel a certain way and when clothes are no longer comfortable, that’s motivation enough for me. For myself personally I like the toned, buff look rather than rail thin.You do have to remember that muscle is heavier than fat. You have been working out a lot and building muscle (see highlight above) and your scale might not be going down but that's because your new muscles weigh more. Yours is the better result than mine since I don't exercise. Keep it up! I wouldn't care how much I weighed if I looked slim and fit instead of looking like an apple, supposedly the worst kind of fat.
Funny story. When my son-in-law was in the army he got a warning that his weight was above regulations. He had been doing weightlifting and was very toned with no fat. He pointed it out to them but they ''went by the book".
My man had the opposite problem when he joined the military. He was underweight so had to eat a lot more to gain. On testing day he said he drank huge amounts of water just in order to pass.
I’d best not comment on the ‘going by the book.’
