I have been weightlifting steady for about 3 months, full body 3x a week and have 1-2 cardio sessions as well.
I have lost around 10 pounds on the scale and have gotten a lot stronger and see more muscle defination in the mirror. I have lost about 3% to 5% body body fat (am at around 23% right now)
How then is it possible that my waist and gut are measuring BIGGER then when I started? I feel less fat around my waist, or so I think I do, but then when I measure it, the waist and gut are both about 1inch bigger then when I started.
My full body workout centres around deadlift, bench press, squat.
Could the deadlifts be the reason my waist area is larger, but yet seems less fatty? Is this normal?
It's a bit disappointing to not see any inches dropping, as fat loss is my main goal right now.
