Help I've been working out for two week and no success

Friday, February 19, 2010

Hello spark friends.Well I am pretty upset. I've been working out on my treadmill for 60 minutes 5 times a week and I still can not move the scale down I'VE stayed within my calarie range so I am pretty stumped. I know I am building muscles but you would think I would lose at least a pound or two., Your help and suggestions would be very much appreciated

    Make sure you are eating enough calories when you are exercising - you need to eat to lose weight - honest!

    Keep doing what you are doing and the scale will catch up with you.

    Sometimes I have to take a few days and measure all my food. It is easy for me to way over-estimate my portions unless I measure for a while and train my "eyeball." I think I'm doing well on calories but actually I'm taking in more than I counted, because of portion size.

    Great job on the exercise and consistency! Be of good cheer!
    As you keep going, you WILL see results!

    Give it more time. I know it is discouraging when you do things right and you don't see a change at the scale, but our bodies can be difficult to understand. The weight on the scale in the short term is not completely a result of calories in and calories out.

    I agree with the others. Do your measurements.
    Make one small change by either doing something different or while walking....run for a min. then walk again.
    It will come off. Keep working.

    The scales are not friends to everyone. Do you feel any different? Is your breathing any better? It is very hard to move the scale in the beginning. Don't be discouraged if you are eating correctly and exercising that much it will begin to show shortly. Hang in there don't give up. Keep me posted on how you are doing? Are you drinking plenty of water?? emoticon emoticon

    Had the same problem until I did intervals as outlined in spark pages, varying the intensity of the walk, as well as changing the elevation, did the trick. Yes, muscle weighs more, so check your measurements--are they changing? Keep at it, sometimes it is changing something like being able to walk outside, doing something like yoga or pilates.

    Keep it up, you'll be stronger and wiser about good choices! emoticon

    not really muscle weighs more then fat in the beginning look for differences in the way your clothes fit to notice success dont be discouraged emoticon
