    Ummm...I started working out with a trainer who specializes in 30 minute 'high intensity' cross fit inspired weight work outs. First I did it 3x a week and now 4x. After these, I do 1 hour of cardio (power walking) on the treadmill. The goal starting this week is to hit the gym or do a light work out everyday I'm not having a training session. (So far so good, I made it to the gym for a 45 minute cardio session and walked 1 mile outside)

    My diet could use improvement. I only eat 2x a day normally and often skip breakfast (bad, I know!) So I've started making myself eat oatmeal and some coffee within 40 minutes of waking up. Even if I don't feel hungry, I'll try to eat something 'healthy' as all the working out is making my appetite and energy levels wonky.

    I have not lost any weight.

    In fact, I have GAINED weight. I hope it's mostly muscle. My arms are getting defined. I think my thighs are getting bigger. My clothes do NOT fit looser, in fact, the opposite - I am busting out of jeans that used to be loose on me (2 years ago, 1 year ago, 4 months ago ) My body shape is being changed, just not in the way I had anticipated Also, disturbing to me is my stomach is strangely NOT flat, but it's been like that for a while. Even when I have been heavier, my stomach is naturally pretty flat. I blame this on age. DAMN YOU HORMONES!!!

    My trainer said since I already did the work of losing about ~25 lbs a few years ago and have now plateaued, I need to focus on changing my body composition and getting stronger, not necessarily on weight. She rec'd losing 1/2 a lb a week. But that is So. Little. So. Slow.

    My goal is basically to look hot in clothes. And to be able to wear EVERYTHING I want. It makes shopping SOOOOOOOO much easier. And more fun.

    Heck yeah!

    I have a similar goal (although it's a bit of a bonus for me rather than my main goal which is fitness).

    My height obscures A LOT. I remember, when I first got intimate with my SO, they commented on my being more fleshy than I looked. I can get away with most clothes but, dammit, I wanna look good in everything (and naked) too.

    A little late but congrats on losing those 25Ibs. (does mental calculation.... hmmm.... over 10kgs... WOW!)

    I have these fitted white trousers I bought 2 months ago. I bought them to spur myself into losing weight. They were REALLY tight on me and I've never worn them. Last night, I tried them on and they were pretty slack. I had to wear a belt to hold them up.

    Sweet!

    I hope this weightloss/toning doesn't plateau at some point. But then again, when that happens, it will be my cue to join a gym and begin on the strength training/body sculpting.

    You will always plateau. How long it takes before you do, and what is needed to move past it depends on age, genetics, etc.

    When that happens, I know who to come to for protips. BIG guns, bro!

    Today, I did another five miles. I wasn't too exhausted by the end of it. Though how much of that is attributable to increased stamina, and how much to the endorphin high (feels bloody awesome), I don't know. Qui vivra verra. I think its time to add another two or three miles.

    I may be taking this healthy eating thing a little too far.

    Just realised I'm taking in less than 800 calories a day (while exercising every day). I would previously ingest between 4 to 6 times that amount. Time to call my nutritionist pal for tips...

    :horor:

    Yeah, 800 calories is low, even without exercise. Good luck with your nutritionist friend - that sounds like a great idea!

    Bench pressed a box of books. I'm wondering if I can convince mom not to sell these.

    Hap - have been meaning to ask you this, are you anemic, by any chance? Some of your symptoms fit the description - esp the feeling dizzy. Get your iron levels checked. Just a general blood test would be good.
