Stay the course. I find in most lifters size will come along with strength. I had this issue when I first started lifting. I was 272 pounds at roughly 30% bodyfat with an 600 pound p/l total. Fast forward 3 years and I am 255 at 20% bodyfat with a 1250ish p/l total and you can tell that I lift in normal clothes. My total would have been around 1400 right now if it wasnt for injuries, but shti happens.

Basically my message for you is on this journey, consistancy and proper programming will take you so much farther than ADD and constantly wanting to try something new.

Also I would like to speak about goal setting. Pick two goals for yourself, one short term, one long term. Something like this: 1000lbs gym total(resonable to acheive in the next few months) and a 500lb squat (reasonable in the next 12-18months). This is how I set up my training and thinking and its paid off big time.
