I’ve totally lost motivation at the moment… I got involved with an 8-week-programme that a friend paid into (and I just helped prep the meals ddd). We went for the trim/tone option, rather than bulk, because although I love to put on muscle mass as much as the next guy, I’ve never committed to a diet or trying to lose the bit of belly/back fat that I have. To put it in context, I would probably compare my body to someone like Andrew Garfield here: I was naturally skinny throughout childhood and built a bit of a broader set of shoulders/chest when I was about 18/19 through weightlifting in my bedroom and eating everything in sight. I didn’t used to get any body fat whatsoever until I hit 30 and my metabolism just seemed to change. But - like Andrew - I wouldn’t say I have a bad body at all. I’ve developed a decent sized chest and arms that fill the right type of shirt nicely, but little definition and an un-toned low level of fat on my stomach. Anyway, I saw some really nice steady progress using this programme. It’s the first meal plan I’ve tried where I actually noticed a difference, I’ve been working out more regularly than ever, and my start and end photos definitely showed a nice change. I also lost about a stone in weight. However, the plan ended two weeks ago and, even though I’ve been sticking to the meal plan and regular workouts since, I feel like I’m getting a bit of belly back and limited progress. Admittedly, I’ve been snacking more now (on fruit!!) but just feeling a bit deflated I guess. I’m not really going anywhere with this - just needed to vent. I want to bulk now but really want to lose this final bit of belly. The body dysmorphia I’m experiencing is quite unpleasant at the moment.
