Basically, i'm 9 stone now, which reminds me, need to change my sig. Im 5ft 8, so im bordering on underweight. However, im still quite, frumpy I think's the right word. Under my skin I can still feel the fat particles, which is really bad. It affects what I wear, I only wear certain things, which don't make my "man boobs" so pronounced. Anywho.
Basically, at the moment im eating about 1450 calories a day, along with exercise to lose weight. But, at 9 stone, I think i've probably done enough, and my parents are getting really worried. But. Im still not happy with my body. I still look frumpy.
What do I do? If I up my calorie intake to 2000ish, and just eat normally, and try to sustain my weight, will my body stay the same, despite going to the gym? Or, will my body get progressively better over time?
The problem is, I need to be able to see them changes sharpish, because at the moment, I hang on losing weight, and if I don't lose it, I get distraught.
My current workout is quite disjointed to be honest. This is what i'm doing at the moment, please dont take the mic too bad, I know it's not good.
Weights: (I always do weights first)
4 sets of 6 bench pressing. (Challenging weight)
4 sets of 6 arm fly's (Challenging weight)
2 sets of 6 powerlifting (Challenging weight)
2 sets of 8 bicep curls
6 sets of 6 on the pectoral machine
4 sets of 6 on the chest press machine
3 sets of 6 on the lateral pulldown machine
30 minutes running. (Anyway to me it is. Pace of about 10.8km. Not that fast I know)
Depends really. Sometimes I spend more time on the treadmill, like 40 minutesish. Or.
20 minutes cross trainer.
Cardio, I don't focus on time, it's calories burnt. I usually do 440-500 according to the machines. That's not on each. That's between the crosstrainer and the treadmill.
I go to the gym 3 times a week. Then 3 other days, I do 1hr on an exercise bike. I have one day rest, a saturday.
