Swimmer Lost Muscle, Gained Fat

"During my senior year in high school, I lost some weight swimming, and even managed some abs by the end of the year. I knew weight gain could be a problem in college given the change in lifestyle, but I wasn't too worried.

A few days ago I got back from school for Christmas break. When I stepped on the scale for the first time in months I was happy to see I had lost five pounds. However, when I got to my room and started trying on old clothes I realized I was starting to get a belly. I knew my abs were long gone, but I can't believe I didn't notice how much fat I had gained.

As for the weight loss, my loss of muscle seems to have overshadowed my gain of fat."
