I have always been very muscular, since three and four years old, its in my genes (dad is a bodybuilder).

In high school, I played field hockey and softball and was a swimmer, I work a lot and am pretty active.

My question here is I have 5'3'' and 148 pounds. I am not fat, but I don't have a few pounds I would really like to loose. I go to the gym three times a week and play volleyball three times a week. At the gym I usually go on the elliptical machine for 35-40 minutes, do crunches and a few machines for arms and legs.

I have huge legs "soccer legs" as my work puts them, and its frustrating because I eat pretty damned well too.

Is there anything I can change to look a healthy amount of weight? Sorry for the obnoxious ramble.

Since you're already working out, you should probably take a look at your diet.

usually fruit and Kashi or cheerios in the morning (depending on what dining facility I can get to in the morning)

Lunch is usually broccoli, carrots, cucumbers and Lo-fat italien dressing, Soy Milk, and Strawberries

Dinner is like a salad and some sort of chicken.

I am not going to lie I indulge at points, I would be kidding myself if I said I didn't.


Also, I had my body fat measured at the gym today its 21% ish. I don't know how great or whatever that is. I will never be skinny... I just want to have less "pudge".

It sounds like maybe you're not eating ENOUGH to balance out all of the activity you're doing. Diet is a delicate balance that I have yet to perfect myself, so I can't give you many tips! There are tons of nutrition facts out there, though, you just have to look.

I put on lean muscle really fast, but still have some chubby spots that are harder. I probably could diet, but I'm happy with how I am.

Eat more protein, and do it at every meal. You should also eat more frequently because this will raise your metabolism. Watch your sugars at meals too. Lifting weighst more is always a good idea. Girls are always worried about getting big, but I promise you this won't happen unless you really really work at it. Most girls (and guys really) just don't train hard enough for good results.

Haha, I need to have your mentality. By the way, do you have the link to the page you are selling your shirts. I really want that grey long sleeve shirt.

I will definitly take the into consideration. I am not longer on a meal plan after next week so I will be more able to eat to my own schedule. Right now I have three meals a day, and with selection that I dont enjoy eating (chicken and tuna salad with way too much mayo and fried chicken seems to be the foods of choice for protein that I can get my hands on). But maybe hard boiled eggs in the morning.

fifteen minutes of cardio a day should give you decent results in about a month.

I agree with this.
I don't think you're eating enough. I think you mentioned eating 3 meals somewhere in here.
Have you tried a few more smaller meals?

i want to see you do 15 a day. Drinking beers does not count as cardio either.
