For the last few months I’ve decided that if my body won’t work in the ways I want (sexually, brain fog, fatigue etc) then I will at least push it to be strong and healthy in other ways. As such I’ve started lifting weights and being more cautious with how I eat and have been following a programme to gain muscle and strength. Myself and others have noticed gains in certain areas: my chest, arms, legs, for example. I’ve also managed to lift heavier in that time. However I’ve also noticed a massive increase in stomach fat, something I’ve never had to deal with before. It looks disgusting, and I’ve had this disease for almost 4 years now.
I’m just wondering if anyone has any tips and advice for how to deal with this side of things? Am I naive for even bothering to try and work out and better myself and how I look?
