Hey whats up,
I did a search and nothing came up with what I was looking for so I decided to ask.
I started weight lifting since I was 15 but I have always been overweight and lately been obese since getting out into the real world of stress and late night fast food dinners. I am getting myself into gear of losing weight, I am noticing great changes in my body and how I feel which I cannot describe.
During my last attempt at losing weight, I would hit the gym every night while running about 2-5 miles a day and I was losing weight quick, but I would be always tired from the run, which I did on my eliptical machine.
This time around I chose to do mostly weight lifting but one of the guys who works at the gym. He has nothing but the best interest in everybody there, even letting me in during my membership off days to let me work out. He came up to me and he was chatting with me, and he slowly advised me that, If I continued the path I was taking which was intense weight lifting, that I would become much bigger than I am now. If some were to guess, a lot tell me that I look like I weigh 340 pounds, but in reality, its 441. I don't know if they are saying it to be nice, but I do hear it from my parents who were always the harshest of critics. But is it true? will weightlifting as an obese man make me much bigger? It kind of killed my workout since it got to me that I should be doing cardio instead of weightlifting.
Thanks in advance,
