I decided I would try to ask for some help/advice in this forum, because I am just not sure what to do anymore.
I have been reading all over the internet about the correct way to gain muscle and get a nice physique but there is so much conflicting information, and websites that masquerade as legitimate but in the end are just trying to sell you something. The latter offers a fountain of info, but it is discredited when you realize that they are trying to talk you into buying something.
I am 25, 6'1" and weigh 180 lbs according to the doctor just yesterday...
Here is my problem:
I have an OK body even when I probably eat too much, I am described as "thin" or "skinny" by a lot of people. However, just because I have a flat stomach doesn't mean I'm in shape. I have absolutely no definition to speak of, of course they would not know that because it is hidden by clothing.
My body is also shaped really strangely. I have long legs and a shorter torso, which makes finding clothes that fit nicely very hard for me.
The main problem that I have with my body is my hips. They are HUGE. I have the hardest time losing the fat around my sides, and my hips are not helping. The bones are literally just wide, and I know I can't fix it but I would like to eliminate the fat around them at the very least...
To give you an idea of what I look like right now:
And this is what I look like WITH clothes on, which is why people think I am so thin:
SO there you have it...
I really want to get in shape and right now I have the time and resources to do it ALL correctly, but I don't know where to start!!
Does anyone have any advice or can point me in the right direction? Perhaps to a workout plan that they had success with? Or any specific tips for my body type?
Thank you SOOOO much in advance
