You've probably lost fat and gained muscle. 

 

I lost 13 lbs, and have gained about 5 back from doing exercises.

That's... why my brother keeps trying to get me into bodybuilding.

I've been doing okay with my exercises,  lost a few cms off my waist and thighs, if I ever get past week 5 of the program the results should be fairly decent (Every time I get to week 4 or 5 I sprain my ankle or pull a muscle bad or something, so I rest up for a few days then start from week 1 again. Personally, I think my fear of bench dips keeps making me injure myself subconsciously ::D:).

Bought myself a 1 year gym membership this morning and did an hour of weights and cardio.  Lost about 7 lbs of muscle weight after surgery, need to get it back. 

 

Anyone else?

Me.  I've been lifting weights and dancing in my basement for cardio this winter.  Going well so far, despite a major set back/lapse during Christmas and a cold.

 

My kids keep threatening to sneak down and videotape me dancing to Taylor Swift (I only actually have one of her songs, Shake It Off, on my workout track; it is good for getting moving).  They figure it would go viral.  I kind of shut them up when I challenged them to keep up with me during  An Irish Pub Song by the Rumjacks and they couldn't.  For some reason they had a hard time throwing punches while holding 10 lb weights over the course of the entire song.

 

So now I am on track exercise-wise, now I need to tackle my overwhelming love affair with food. I really need to stop eating for reasons other than nourishing me.

I've been wanting to loose weight, but I'm still stuck in my own denial feedback loop.

Should be spending more time at the gym, but I developed some weird blisters on my toes because... reasons? (my gym shoes did feel tight around my toes last time)

 

Until they fully heal, I'll avoid the cardio machines. At least I do have some weights at home, so it's not a full loss.

Ugh.

 

Caught The Crud this weekend.  Good news is that it's killed my appetite.  The bad news is that I'm so used to it not mattering if I kept a wonky eating schedule that I've been severely wobbly on a few occasions.

 

I've got to get serious when I've finally kicked the crud--Another grandchild is almost here.

My work has a "biggest loser" competition going on at the moment, which is on for ten weeks (we're almost five weeks in) and has a $1,000 prize for first place and a few hundred for second and third.

So far I've lost nearly 10 kg with some sensible food choices and daily exercise (alternating bodyweight workout and various cardio exercises), and I'm going to need some new clothes by the end of this competition.

I started trying to loose weight 30 days ago. I've lost 13lbs so far in that 30 days! I'm using an app along with a fitness tracker that is compatible with said app to track food and exercise. I haven't gone on some crazy diet nor have I joined a gym. I've simply limited my soda Intake (not cut it out entirely) and added more veggies. The biggest thing is limiting my calories per day. My app helps me track my calories and gives me my limits. It also changes my allowed calories as I lose weight or exercise. I thought I'd join up here too and join everyone else.

I'm still going to the gym weekly, and have noticed a huge improvement in strength and stamina.  Not sure how much longer I will be in this particular class, some of the exercises are starting to feel easy.
