I have been out of my mind trying to figure out what is going on. I am SO happy with the rest of my body. My muscles are beautifully developing in my upper body (which i have NEVER had before) I have a butt (again...which used to be flat!) but I have noticed that the cleaner I have eaten, the less calories I have taken in, the harder I have worked out and more cardio I have implemented into my w/o plan (4-5 days training with 4-5 days of 45 mins cardio) I have developed a layer of fat around my stomach that I have NEVER had before!!! I can literally grab like an inch and it really saddens me, with how hard I am working.
I am thinking 2 things:
1. Could it be from my Nuva ring I have been on for a year and a half? It has slowly gotten worse over the year...
2. Could it be from not ENOUGH calories in my diet (1500 - 1800 ) I am 5'6" USED to be 125, I am now 130 UGH!!! Would LOVE to be back to 125 again. Or do I cut down to 1250? That seems so absurd!!! I am already going through the day pretty hungry!!! I am fine until about 9 at night, and then the hunger REALLY kicks in
