I’ve lost around 12kg, today i noticed my stomach fat feels different. it used to be really big and the fat was quite thick if u grabbed it, almost tougher to grab. now i’ve still got stomach fat but yh it feels thinner, doesn’t LOOK thinner and it’s not loose skin, idk how to describe it, softer?

It takes time to see things visually change. How are you feeling in yourself?

But how is your health? Has it improved? Focus more on how it makes you feel mentally and physically rather than the scale or the mirror.

Are you still being safe re: weightloss? I've randomly popped in to threads of yours before but haven't recently. How are you actually doing?

So you want to focus on toning and not weight loss. Your weight is perfect!

i feel like my health has improved. i’m being physically safe, i’ve stopped fasting and i eat 1550 but i’m actually thinking of upping to 1650 now school has started (walking an extra hour a day and i’ve increased dumbbell weights which KILLS). it’s more mentally i’m guilt ridden and i feel stressed about not loosing fat/gaining it back

You want to be targeting the areas specifically you want to tone up. If anything this will gain you weight as muscle is heavier than fat. Although fat is healthy and also a essential part of the body. But id definitely say you have lost enough weight and are perfect the way you are. I dont think you are seeing the improvements you want because lack of tone in your insecurity areas. Really though aslong as you are healthy you are perfect the way you are

Just because muscle is denser than fat doesn't mean you will inherently gain weight when gaining muscle.
