Ok.. I dunno if any of you are experts.. but I'm hoping someone has advice.
I'm 23 years old and need to lose about ten pounds.
Up until when I quit smoking last year I would generally weigh between 124-134.. generally for me between a size 2 or 4 at that weight. During this time I can honestly say that I have not been in a gym once in five years, and I was not overly active or anything like that. I also have never dieted. Anyways.. whenever I gained and went up in the 130's was usually in the winter and then i'd miraculously loose about 10 pounds every spring doing virtually nothing differently.
However.. since I quit smoking more than a year ago.. that stopped happening. I've gained ten pounds.. none of my clothes fit.. and I haven't miraculously lost any weight. boo.. I dunno if its even because of the quitting notion.. I'm just assuming cause thats all that changed.
Anyways.. so about two weeks ago I joined a gym and I have down about 4-5 40 plus minute cardio workouts and 2 one hour long strength training workouts both weeks and my clothes still fit the same... and I still weigh exactly the same. how long until I can see results. I haven't changed my diet drastically.. but at the same time I figured going from never working out in five years to working out would actually allow me to loose wieght without having to do a hardcore diet.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me.. I know you'll prob want to kill me but I never used to have to work at it.. and now that I have been I'm not seeing any results? Any suggestions?
