I am 5'8, and 193lbs -down from 220, - still lots to go!
I am wondering about really intense exercise and training.
I have read in a few places that even while working out like a pro if you have excess fat then you won't see the physical results until the body fat percentage is low enough.
I have a great exercise regime now, but it is not heavily strength focused, and I don't expect the visible results to be outstanding.
Does anyone think that stepping up the workout early on will show results early on, or will it still be a case of waiting until the majority of my weight is gone before I see anything- toned arms, legs, stomach etc
