Default 53 and too much of me!

Hi! I posted on the introduction page, but today I saw this over 50 page and said-that's the place for me!
I'm feeling frustrated and impatient for the weight to come off. I joined a gym recently and have been taking classes faithfully. When I don't go to the gym I walk 2 or 3 miles fast- 13 minute mile fast!
As I said on the intro page I eat really good food but too much of it I guess. I'm trying to cut back.
Yesterday I got my Z-Trim appetite suppressant capsules. I took one last night before dinner and I only ate steak and zucchini-no carbs! I LOVE carbs!
I belong to Self Diet .com and record all my workouts.
I just wish I would see a change faster.
When do you think it will begin to show?? I'm so impatient!
Here's my workout log from the Self page.

6/25/07 Walking, brisk 40 mins
6/24/07 Walking, brisk 40 mins
6/24/07 Walking, brisk 30 mins
6/22/07 Kickboxing 45 mins
6/21/07 Weight lifting, vigorous 60 mins
6/21/07 Weight lifting, moderate 30mins
6/20/07 Yoga, vigorous 60 mins
6/18/07 Weight lifting, vigorous 60mins
6/16/07 Yoga, vigorous 60 mins
6/13/07 Dancing, modern 60 mins
6/12/07 Walking, brisk 30 mins
6/11/07 Weight lifting, vigorous 60 mins
6/9/07 Yoga, vigorous 60 mins
6/3/07 Walking, brisk 40 mins
6/2/07 Yoga, vigorous 60 mins

I already decided the kickboxing class and dancing class aren't for me. I'm too uncoordinated! I just want to know that the other intense classes will start working soon!!!
Thanks for your opinions and advice. This is a great site!

You are doing a lot of exercise. How are you reducing your calories?

Hi KYOTODEB . . . welcome to the group . . . and . You've come to the right place for lots of support on this journey to better health and fitness.

Hate to have to tell you this . . . but it isn't going to happen overnight . . . it does get more difficult as we get older (darn it all) . . . but it will happen . . . just remember that it was the tortoise that eventually won that race.

Definitely sounds like you've got the exercise thing licked (my weakness, I'm afraid). You should try to start tracking your food intake too (perhaps try FoodFit - a lot of the chicks around here swear by it - or perhaps your Self Diet group has a food log function?) Most of those 'experts' (whoever they are) seem to feel it really is about 80% eating less and 20% exercising more.

Good luck on the journey . . . we'll all be looking forward to getting to know your better. Have a great moving and shaking everning . . .

PS -- Just read your profile page . . . congratulations on being a published author BTW . . . Just noticed that your goal weight is 178 and that's only a pound from your current weight ??????

I eat really well until supper time. Then I have too big a portion. I don't eat much fat at all. My downfall is carbs. I have started eating fruit and am trying to add more protein to my diet. I was counting calories for a while and before supper I was up to about 700. Then I ate a big dinner and would end up at 1500 or 1600 at the end of the day. I couldn't eat my main meal at lunch since I teach 1st grade and get a brief lunch! Now that school is out I'm trying to eat earlier.

Thanks Meowee-I was replying to Bargoo's post and didn't see your welcoming post!
I know you're right-the weight didn't go on overnight and it won't come off that way either. I was just feeling frustrated!
