    @Futaba Would you say I'd still be losing waist circumference with that?
    Since you're so new to weightlifting you would, but it would be a slower rate than going under by 500+ calories. Making sure you're doing compound exercises that engage your core with some isolation ab exercises would also help strengthen your core and make your stomach tighter also.

    The sit-up group didn't lose any weight and didn't get any healthier through their parameters. But they did lose an impressive 2cm (0.8in) from their waistlines.

    Prof Thompson explained that this was due to an improved core strength and the muscles in the abdomen just holding their fat better. A bit like a muscle version of body-shaping underwear. But a good core is beneficial for protection against lower back pain and improves posture.
