You're obviously knowledgeable, and I don't feel bad for asking about your weight loss, because its a choice you make to weigh that much, it's just a very foreign concept to me. You're probably one of the fittest people on here, but what do you have against building lean muscle and definition?
I like being stronger too. In fact, I'm currently training in a way that emphasizes pure strength, moreso than someone who's emphasizing hypertrophy. As I pointed out, as I've lost weight I've gotten stronger and stronger.
And leanness and definition is a function of fat-loss, not muscle gain.
