Hi tracie, I too am a newbie to this forum. First of all good luck on the new venture! Starting out by going to the gym twice per day is quite an enthusiastic beginning. I have been going mostly twice per day for about 8 weeks. I am doing a 12 week competition. The hardest part of the new plan is usually the first week. Over coming the hunger and missing the bad diet can be the most challenging part. Make sure that you go easy on yourself and rest often. I recall at my 6 week mark hitting the exhaustion and hunger wall. I had depleted the carbs to the point of "needing" junk. Allow yourself a "free" meal or free day where you just rest. The psychological AND physical benefits can be huge and allow yourself to avoid the "I am missing out" syndrome.

You can do it!!! Good luck
Don
