Hey guys i'm trying to lose some weight but everytime i hit the weights i feel like i'm getting weaker from week to week. I used to lift quite a bit until i injured my shoulder and stopped, and gained a ton of weight. Now i'm eating around 1700 calories and training but every week i feel like i'm getting weaker and its frustrating because i cant get back to lifting the weight i used to lift. Anyone know what could be going on? A couple years ago i did a 1500 calorie diet for a couple months and my strength kept going higher and higher but this time its different.
