I know everyone has different results from their program, but I am struggling with something. I have worked out every day for two weeks, reduced my caloric intake drastically, and now I am just wondering when I am going to see a smidgeon of results?! I have gone down a couple pounds and gone back up...it's not really the pounds I am interested in, it is the inches, and so far none of my clothing (especially my pants) fit any better! Any words of encouragement or anyone who has been through this?
I have never worked out in my life, or had to. Since I had my daughter, I have been a yo-yo, dropping pounds and adding them due to medications and medical issues I had in the past. Now that I am older, I am realizing that if I had good habits working out when I was younger, this wouldn't be so hard. I am doing the best I have ever done as far as working out and watching what I eat. I know this isn't going to happen overnight, I just want some little "light at the end of the tunnel" sort of thing to show me that my efforts haven't gone unnoticed. Any other time I have worked out at the gym, I have gone for a day or so and then not gone again. I have had a membership at the local Holiday Inn Fitness Center for 8 years now, and I have probably gone total less than 20 times. Now, I am going to give my membership up at the Holiday Inn and I got a membership at the local YMCA. I am just rambling now, but can anyone give me one of their stories? Maybe that will brighten my day!
