    I've been in a deficit for 9 months, I've lost just over 2 stone, currently 14st and f6.01 but feel I still have around another 7 to 14 pounds of fat but have been stuck at around 14, even being strict for 6 weeks. I've always had moobs since being a kid and almost lost them at around 12st 7lbs aged 22

    I've been following 5 x 5 strong lifts consistently for the same time. Recently I've reduced or plateaued with the weight I've been lifting.

    Should i continue with the weight loss or should I start building up.

    It actually doesn't matter that much which you do next... You probably don't need to "bulk" - very few people actually do (only very skinny chronic under-eaters) to gain muscle. You could eat at around maintenance and focus on muscle gain for a while. But set your sights on making progress in the gym SL5x5 should be forcing you to make consistent progress - so keep that going. Ultimately it's patience that matters - and keeping an objective score of progress. If weight lost is a good sign for dieting, strength gained is a good sign for muscle gain goals.

    You probably aren't done with the fat loss yet - but one thing at a time. Nobody truly does 1 phase of fat loss and 1 phase of muscle gain then that's it... it's not realistic.
