I know this may sound crazy... but I want to lose muscle... does anyone know how I can go about doing this?
I worked out from age 18-23 and became very tone and muscular for a girl... but now I hate it. Even though I am lean, I feel uncomfortable in a lot of cloths that I once use to wear... especially halter tops, short sleeve shirts, camisoles, etc... because of my muscular shoulders and arms. Three years ago I decided to stop working out completely, in hopes that i'd lose some muscle mass. However, I hardly lost any muscle mass at all... and now I have developed fat in places that I don't want. I love exercising, but I avoid it because I seem to build lots of muscle mass very easily. To make matters worse, I now have intense shoulder pain all the time... I suppose from lack of exercise.
I am considering taking a low dose of prednisone for a few months, to help with my shoulder inflamation/pain and also induce muscular atrophy. I know the side effects also include weight gain, but I could address that after I stopped taking the medication.
Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions, besides telling me that I'm crazy for wanting to lose muscle?
