A little about me. I'm 20, female, 5'5", 135 lbs. My goals are to get a Toned stomach (lose the love handles over jeans + hopefully get a 6 pack soon..) and to reach my goal weight of 125 lbs.
I have been working out hard since March 2011. Excersice 1 hour a day 5 days a week. I do HIIT, elliptical, bike, and the past couple months have started strength training 5x a week also. I love to work my abs and arms. I don't do leg days because of how bulky they get so easily.
I eat low carb, limiting myself to 100g or less of carbs a day, high fat and protein. I don't eat bread, pasta, cookies, cake, or anything with white flour or high in carbs.
Although, I let myself eat whatever I want on the weekends. So it's strict 5 days a week then I break on the weekends.
Anyways! I have 2 problems. I have been working so hard and have only went from 142 to 135 in over a year! And my inches have all stayed the same except my hips. They have increased 2 inches just recently. I am so bummed about this because I don't want bulky thighs!
I don't even train my legs.
So I am still 10lbs more than I want to be and gaining inches. My jeans are tighter these days but I don't understand why! I keep my diet so healthy and religiously exersice...
ANY advice, thoughts, tips would be so so greatly appreciated! I am at such a standstill right now and I've never been so frustrated.
Thank you for reading my novel. Lol
