Hi everyone. I was a long distance runner but last year i gt back into weight lifting with doing a few miles here and there some days just to have some cardio in there. Long story short is i suffer multiple auto immune diseases and in the last 2 yrs have gotten a lot worse with my conditions. I had a flare up over the Summer and i would go hiking once a week, and other days as long as i wasn't too exhausted I would take fast paced walks through my neighborhood and ride my bike other days. This was nothing compared to my usual fitness regime. My question is because of my situation i have to be extra careful not to over exert myself but the past few wks i have been taking HIIT classes 3 days a week 1 hr long! In the beginning i was really a mess but now i am slowly getting better. I have lost tremendous strength and i am desperate to lose the weight i gained but the scale is not budging. I cannot exercise everyday because the HIIT is draining me to the point i hav to take the following day off to recover. I feel like i will never drop weight or slim down these legs! I used to squat 100 lbs reps 6 months ago and i think from many months of this my legs got bigger. Any help is much appreciated!
