My aim isn't trying to lose more weight. i guess I have to keep reminding people of that. I know I've written about this before but I still hear the comment "Don't lose any more weight".
Today, someone hadn't seen me for a while and said it. Instead of realizing that I was about the same weight I was when she last saw me, instead she needed to remind me that I don't need to lose any more weight. I don't know why it annoys me when I hear it, but it does. I think it's because I've maintained right around the same weight for over two years now. As my body fat percentage changes, the only weight I lost was a couple pounds (two pounds, to be precise) from my lowest weight. And I've been maintaining this weight for weeks now, of 210 pounds.
My weight might drop a few more pounds as body fat percentage goes down, but it's not my goal. My trainer wants me at 10 percent body fat and I'm at 13.34 percent. So as I keep doing the weights and eating around 2500 calories a day, no one should have to worry that I'm trying to lose weight.
I don't want a tummy tuck. I lost over 130 pounds without surgery, so I want to prove what's possible without surgery. I'm seeing results and the bulge in my abs is a lot less than when I started strength training. I'm seeing definition in areas of my abs, along with my chest, arms and legs. I know it's working so that's the purpose of getting to 10 percent.
At least the talk of "better not lose too much weight" has calmed down a lot. But every once in a while, I'll hear this comment and I know people mean well. I have no intention of losing weight as I care about gaining muscle. Does that sound like someone who wants to be super skinny? I just want to tighten my skin, and that's not going to happen by just losing weight. That will happen with strength training and eating clean.
