Hello. I've recently gotten back into to seriously losing weight. I'm a little perplexed.
When I first started like a year or so ago. I cut my calories, and was seriuosly working out like 10-15 mins a day probably 4 times a week. That low because that's all I could handle without feeling like a piece of my soul broke off. Doing that for three months I lost about 20 pounds. 10 pounds the first month, 5 pounds the second and third. Then after that it went stagnant. I was very diligent in keeping my calories low, but nothing was coming off so I gave up.
This go around, I'm being more realistic realizing results take time and I have to keep up with it. I've been going to the gym religiously since first week in February. Three times a week. How much have I lost??? Nothing. But i've GAINED 2 pounds. I'm eating the same. Every class I take at the gym is a mixture of cardio and weights. Though sometimes the classes have a tendency to be aimed more at toning than cardio. Recently I've started staying at the gym an extra half hour-45 mins if I feel like I didn't get alot of cardio in. So in total, on all three days I stay at the gym for 1 1/2 - 2hrs. Will this help me? What should I do?
My job is a very active job. I walk around alot during the course of 8 hrs. I'm going to keep going. I'm NOT going to give up this time like I did last time. But it would be awesome to see the scale go down instead of up. Maybe I'm just ranting :-(.
