    It is easy for them, you're right. I've done pretty advanced reformer Pilates for about a year and made it clear when I first called to inquire that I wanted to do reformer classes, I accepted at the beginning that I'd have to do a few floor classes so they could asses where I was at but I've been asking for about 3 weeks now when I can change, I couldn't go to my class tonight but I don't plan on doing another floor class unless they can give me a damn good reason I should keep doing something I don't want to while I can feel my strength and toning getting worse. I'm not an emotional soul but this is really upsetting me cause I can feel and see my backwards progression It was looking so promising at the start too.

    You are to an emotional soul.

    It's a business thing. They suck you in by making it look good, and take your money.Then slack off. And unless you raise a fuss they won't do anything more than they have to.

    You could always bring a hammer to class, and threaten to kneecap 'em unless you get some results.

    Sounds like you have a good argument, Trin. Plus, if they want to make any MORE money off of you, they need to give you want you want or explicitly tell you why they won't.

    I wonder if the advanced class has too many or too few people. Both would explain why they don't want to upgrade you, and possibly why they'd let you walk over getting more of your money.

    Does hanging out with fam count as working out? I didnt get around to anything tonight, had errands to run with the sisters.

    I'll be lazy tomorrow, work all day friday, sat, and sunday, and then recover monday and be back on track monday evening with my weight training class's workout.

    I'm so confused.

    So I was working out for two months at the beginning, and there was no change.

    Then, suddenly, within the span of about a week, I lost 5 lbs.

    It's been a month since then. I've kept off those 5 lbs but I haven't lost any since then, either. And don't give me any of that crap about jeans fitting looser. They haven't since that week.

    What the hell is going on.

    I haven't reported in lately (though I continue to exercise almost every day).

    30 m on the stationary bike, 45 m walking, plus weighted exercises and calisthenics. Enough to sweat through my shirt. Go me!

    So I was sick today. I even had a fever! That would explain the sitting around yesterday. So I missed yesterday and today, pretty sure I'll miss tomorrow.
