    so i been working out at least 5x/week and doing cardio, i can tell significantly that i lost fat, but my weight has stayed the same, i know its due to lifting also and im also taking protein and on a good diet (taking in around 1500-1800 cals/day) to lose the fat, but jeez its kinda discouraging hwen your weight stays the same on the scale!!

    Don't sweat the actual body weight then. If you look visibly better, who cares what you weigh?

    Weight is not as significant as body fat.

    I agree with all of the above- but also know the feeling. My scale hasn't changed much if at all, but I can get back into a jacket that 2 months ago there was no hope of me fitting into. Look at the whole picture, not just a #. I know it's easy to rely on that # for motivation and can get discouraging. But hey my lifts keep going up and clothes are fitting better so I'm happy.

    Weight doesn't mean anything. I actually gained and am up to 130, but I'm a size 2. I don't look 130.

    when i start cutting, i'm gonna put trash bags on all the mirrors and hide my scale.


    edit: maybe a little hole through the trashbag so i can at least see my face/head.

    i'm fucking hardcore.

    Like several have said, weight doesn't mean a whole lot... it's how you look. If you wanted to find out who was better looking, Jessica Alba or Renee Zeilweiger, would you weigh their heads?

    I don't wear underwear. On the rare occasion that I do, I wear boy shorts or hot shorts.
