Sometimes (most of the time) it doesn't happen as fast as we think it should, but it will.
Thanks Lisa ive heard that theory before and I have one of those scales that measure bmi and hydration. My issue with this is that even though you may be right to a small degree I know from research a hardcore body builder that is not taking steroids would be hard pressed (no pun intended) to put on more than a pound or two of muscle a month and two would be a lofty goal at that. So I don't think a 52 year old man like myself doing light weight training 15 minutes a day is doing much more than just maintaning. I appreciate the encouragement and ive been meaning to take measurements and record them. Maybe this weekend.
