I have reached a point where I feel extremely disheartened. I'm trying my best to get rid of lingering body fat, especially belly fat, and I just have not been seeing much results. Ive been doing pretty much everything right, watching my portion sizes, tracking my calories, strength training, eating adequate protein, and cardio but nothing has really changed. It's been about 3 weeks, almost a month and by now I expected to see SOMETHING. I try not to pay too much attention to the scale but I "lost" 2 llbs and went away for the weekend, wasn't really exercising or tracking my macros or calories and when I got back the scale went back to 130lbs, so I went from 128lbs back to 130lbs. I'm only 5'2 and I'm really trying to do this the right way, the last time I had lost weight I went from 130 to 115 but I still had belly fat and body fat and I'm really not trying to have that happen again.
My ultimate goal is a curvier figure with nice definition and overall a more proportionate body. I have broad shoulders but I have realized that they look "broad" because my upper arms are fat. I feel in my heart that I can reach this goal, its just getting rid of the body fat has been extremely challenging. What should I do😪? Should I tweak something in my routine or has it just not been that long and I need to keep working?
