    What are your training goals?

    You didn't mention any lower body numbers - do you squat or deadlift?

    Are you counting calories?

    Weight training is a very good way to support fat loss because it prevents muscle loss - so you look better faster without getting really skinny.

    However, it's the calories (or lack of) that do the actual work when it comes to fat loss. So, to be in control of whether you are headed towards your goal, you really need to count calories.

    Go to the fat loss forum and read the "basics" sticky thread at the top of the page.

    It would also be a good idea to use a structured program. I suggest looking at "All Pros Simple Beginners Routine" at the top of this forum page.

    It might pay to get at least 500 calories under maintenance - this should lead to about 1lb a week fat loss. Otherwise it will take a long time. The downside of doing it fast (aside from feeling hungry a lot!) is that your strength progress might stall. It should resume once you start eating more though.
