    More seriously, why do you want to join the gym? Are you interested in lifting? New cardio exercises? Classes?

    Did not go to gym - break day

    Did walk around a hell of a lot (at least 1 hour, maybe more, coolness)

    Total caloric intake: about 1500

    Gym class did some fitness calculator stuff instead of exercise today, which was probably good because my ankles still hurt like hell after yesterday.

    The computer recommended I do 1.5 miles at 3 mph this week 3-6 days, but I don't think my teacher will allow me to do that.

    "When it comes to eating right and exercising, there is no 'I'll start tomorrow.' Tomorrow is disease." V.L. Allineare

    Okay, so I hit the grocery store today, but went out to eat and had a nice dessert. (Not a Blizzard.) Looking at the above quote, I have decided Friday, tomorrow, will become 'today'. I won't be perfect, but no more excuses.

    Since you are exercising, it's actually okay to eat more. Just weigh yourself, keep an eye on your measurements, or pay attention to how your clothes fit. Any one of those will tell you if you are eating too much, and you can adjust.

    A general dietary rule: If there is food in your house, you will eventually eat it. It's actually easier to replace unhealthy foods with healthier alternatives than to play the 'will power' game in your own home.

    Just did my workout. Didn't pull any muscles by accident then time.

    Walked, did crunches, drank less than one can of diet soda, ate some yummy (sweetened) grapefruit.

    Will doing crunches and stuff reduce my belly fat even if I don't lose weight? Or should I try to lose weight, too? I'm at the high end of normal for my height and frame, so I guess it wouldn't hurt.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Your abs will build muscle from crunches, but you won't see that muscle until you lose the fat around it. Working your stomach out can stimulate fat loss in those areas, but overall fat loss of the body is what will give you any definition. But everything you do is much better than nothing. Keep it up

    No - crunches will not reduce belly fat unless you are losing fat in general. Unfortunately, you can't control where fat gets removed. Genetics and sometimes irony () play the biggest factors in that.

    Do you consider yourself to be in a place where you want to lose weight? The high end of normal range is still within normal range. You can still get healthier without necessarily losing weight... EDIT: Hah, what Kyuuei said.

    It won't neccessarily reduce your belly fat if your belly is where you fat distribution concentrates. Just like only working my legs probably won't reduce the fat there. Exercising will reduce the fat in your belly regardless of what specific exercise you do. So if you ran a lot, you'd reduce belly fat. If you did crunches only, you'd reduce belly fat. If you did lots of push-ups, you'd reduce belly fat. What the specific exercise will do, though, is build the muscles that are being used.

    Or: What the other two said.

    Everyone has six pack abs, but you have to have a pretty low body fat percentage for them to actually show.
