Loose skin more than fat, how long have you been at this weight?

i fluctuate between 200 and 205. ive been at this weight for years man. before i joined this website i thought i could add muscle and burn fat at the same time, so i never really lost weight with that mentality. i guess ive SLOWLY having a bit of recompostion. but i just started an actual, true cut last week.

you cant burn fat and add muscle am affraid! you need to be in calorie surplus to gain muscle and calorie deficit to lose fat hence bulk and cut.

I thought it was possible to lose fat and add muscle just very hard and a very slow processes at that.

I'm almost positive it is cause when I first bulked to 165 everyone says I was huge. I decided to maintain for about 6 months and in that time everyone said I had gotten so much smaller,(someone people even asked if I stopped working out) without me even losing a single pound.

That's called body recomposition.

i can see exactly where this thread is about to go, so before it gets hijacked, can i get any estimates?

I'd guess 18-20% but I suck at estimates.

the reason i would have guessed lower for myself is this. the vein that traverses the biceps is visible for both my arms, and i remember reading that veins appearing on the chest area signified a sub-10% bf. not that i was close to 10%, but not as high as 20%. just wishful thinking huh? f- it, oh well.

that can't be true because I got a lot of veins in my upper chest but i'm easily 17-20%
