I'd Like Your Thoughts...

Saturday, July 13, 2013

So, I am noticing how my thighs are beginning to tone since running and definitely adding more squats into my daily routines. I am still working on getting my Michelle Obama inspired arms and my version of Serena Williams thighs (which may not be that far away)!!! I am also noticing that my butt is also toning yet becoming fuller since running!

My thighs are not shrinking just getting firm. My arms are not shrinking yet muscle is building. Of course they both are smaller since weighing 225lbs yet no weight is being lost here. I am 100% okay with losing slowly! I just wanted some insight as I know we all are different so how one of us looses, I will not and the same for toning.

That said, is it possible to be toned and not lose weight but lose body fat? this all in my head?

Thanks in advance for sharing your insight! Again, not looking for tips on how to lose yet instead insight on toning and not losing!

    Yes for sure, you will have lost fat but replaced it with muscle which is denser, and occupies about one third of the space as fat. So you can weigh the same and drop a few sizes. But when you have toned up, the rest of your fat will go, then you will lose weight too. Unless you eat more to feed your exercise habit.
I lost a lot of fat once by exercising not dieting - but no weight! Learned my lesson, ya just can't lose weight by exercise alone.

    Muscle is denser than fat - so getting toned and staying the same weight means you are getting smaller, not lighter - that is good :)

    Absolutely, it's fact that while building muscle, you may not lose & may even gain during the process! Check out Coach Calorie online & read some of his insights! You'll understand! Keep pushing girl! You ROCK!!!

    Yes, I think that losing fat is what will happen next. That is just my opinion.
But I am going by other women that have built muscle, keep exercising, keep eating right and start burning the fat. You are becoming an athlete and starting to look like one!
