    I started working out about 5 months ago. Mostly cardio. I am down 40 lbs. I started lifting on a bowflex 6 weeks ago and now me weightless has slowed down. Could I be putting on muscle weight as fast as in losing fat? I still have about another 20 pounds to go to hit my weight goal. I have adjusted my diet to up the protein intake since starting with weights.

    What was your weight loss rate prior to starting weight training, and what is it currently? Also, how much did you adjust your total calorie intake when you started weight training? How often (and for how long) are your weight training sessions?

    I was around 2 lbs per week and slowed to maybe 1 now. I train 6 days a week with 2 workouts 3 times each. I haven't upped my intake much as my training is not heavy weights more mid weight with higher reps. 3 sets at 10 reps with only 30-45 second rest periods. Once I am able to 3x10 I up weight and the start at 10,7,5 reps.
