It also depends on what types of execise's you are doing in the gym. Also what weights and how many reps... tell us what you do when you hit the gym.... so we could assess. =) :) :)

You don't specifically that you've been doing strength training; only that you've been doing aerobics.

I think you need to compare your current body weight to an objective body weight, and your body mass index as well (calculators easily found).

FOR OBJECTIVE BODY WEIGHT:

Next, compare your current caloric intake to the desired caloric intake:
http://www.wellness.com/resources/Wellness%20Tools/20/000009.htm

As a semi-asian, I have deleted as many carbohydrates as possible, the main ones being rice and orange juice. While commendable that you do aerobics often, after study you may find that your aerobics is merely burning off the calories in the rice. The closer to simple sugar the carbohydrate is, the more efficient is the body's absorption. Starch from rice is just one step removed from sugar, in molecular complexity. Is sugar healthy? In my estimation, rice is nearly equal to sugar in "healthiness" (not good).

There are various tricks and adjustments to diet to burn more calories. I don't know the answer to your question (but you read this far!). If a skinny person spends 3 days a week for a year in the gym, he'd show gains and definition, two years, definitely. If you don't, then either your stength training isn't as much as it could be or more likely, your body metabolism is preseving the fat which is masking muscle development. Your shoulders may have been skinnier to begin with or you may have strength-trained your shoulders more than other parts.

Recommend you get an estimate of percent body fat.

You've certainly put in the time and effort and ought to see a payoff. Eating enough calories to maintain your weight, though, will slow the appearance of progress

wow.. thanks bro.. i wasn't really hoping that some one would reply me.. but thanks to both of you..

well i have stopped rice totally for a few months already.. now i have bread only and i try to decrease that and increase on proteins too.. whats simple carbs? is macaroni considered as it?

well i checked the web site and my ideal weight is around 70-75... i was on that weight b4 i started gymming.. now i am already 87... my gym instructor told me that i our actual weight is added by 10 kg due to muscle mass.. is this really true???

if this is then i guess i am on my correct weight.. i just did 400 sit ups today.. i hope am making this habit everyday coz sometimes it's tiring and i needed some inspiration to carry this out.

How about you watch your gym plan?
