I've been trying to lose weight for the last 4 or 5 months now, and I trained higher reps for the majority of the time of that duration. I lost approximately 30lbs in that time. I noticed a lot of my muscle density went away and felt almost worst or flabbier than when I first started. I recently started doing 5x5 for my compound barbell movements, and varying rep ranges between 10-6 on my alternate exercises. I have noticed some of my muscle density has come back and my weight hasn't gone up at all. In fact my weight is some what dropping although it still fluxuates day to day. Also instead of doing cardio immediately after weight training I go home and drink protein mixed with water than an hour later eat my next meal than wait another hour after that and go back and do my treadmill speed intervals.

Constructive criticism will be taken into consideration. This is also my first post in any main forum other than my journal.
