Lately I have been hitting the work out room at my apartment complex. Hard. I either walk or walk/run every night for about 45 minutes, combined with my daily half hour on the treadmill and elliptical and a pretty intense 45 minutes with weights working whatever body group I do that day.
I'm eating the exact same but I swear on my mother's life that I have built muscle and lost fat overnight! Okay, okay, I know I haven't, but my calves are even more well defined, my shoulders are starting to look sculpted, I have some massive pythons (for a girl that is, lol) and my hammies are rock solid. Go me!
But here's where I'm confused- I know by the way I look (I don't keep track of measurements though) that I really haven't lost much fat. I'm still jiggly and fully of cellulite and yucky.
For people who start hardcore working out while being CONSIDERABLY overweight, do you think it's possibly to tighten up and tone while not really losing fat? Is it my muscle like squeezing the fat towards my skin and compacting it? Or am I losing fat while gaining muscle equally?
I'm sorry if this is a dumb question or in the wrong spot lol but I'm not new to the exercise game. I used to be super fit and muscular, but I have never gotten fat and actually went HAM on weights etc. so I don't know what to expect!
