    I say whip it
    Whip it good

    So your goal with exercise is to increase strength and lose weight? Are you tracking your daily caloric intake, or just foods consumed?

    You don't want to go too far into daily caloric deficit, especially with all the exercise you're doing. It will add up quickly and leave you mentally and physically fatigued, making it too easy to lose motivation, or burn out completely. Just make sure you listen to your body and you will know.

    Spinning is an awesome exercise as well. A good instructor will make the time fly by, and having the support of a group really helps to push through the burn. It's also a great way to tone those sexy legs

    I hope that at least one day a week you eat whatever you want. If you restrict your foods 7 days a week for any length of time you set yourself up for failure.

    And just so you know, I don't consider all calories equal.

    Yep, I did today, which means I'm going to retain water like hell and put on one kilo in one day Nowadays I look at food and put on weight - it sucks.

    You're female.


    And water weight is nothing to worry about, it can be removed quickly. Another thing, stop worrying about how much you weigh, worry about your measurements if you have to worry about something.

    Most people's weight can fluctuate from day to day, why the hell would anyone want to use that as a measure of fat loss? Look at most women on "diets" they are neurotic from worrying about weight.

    Good, think of it in those terms, not weight.

    Well my ultimate goal is to lose weight but not for the sake of losing numbers. I would like to lose fat mass, which is why I'm lifting weights and doing cardio like a crazy nut. Ultimately, my goal is not really losing the number you see on the scale, but the percentage of that number that is fat.
