When will I start to see real resutls from my diet/exericse?
Working at a desk job all day packed about 20 pounds onto my 5'6 frame. I used to weight 155 but was always told that I looked more like 120 (I have huge breasts [dd's] but was slim & muscular otherwise.) I was always complaining about how 'fat' I was...now I wish I could get back down to that and then some! For about a month Ive been going to the gym 5 days a week doing 30-45 minutes of the elliptical machine or treadmill, then weights, and eating absolutely NO fast food. I cook my own healthy meals and eat according to portion size, and I dont skip meals because I was told that can backfire. So Ive been doing this and still havent seen any dramatic weight loss more than maybe 3 pounds & loose clothing (but nothing too dramatic.) I really want to see results to keep me motivated and I dont know what else I could or should be doing? I hear things like, drink more water or just eat less, but I am stuck here!

You're not doing anything wrong. The faster you'll lose weight, the faster you'll get it back! So stick to your diet. Make sure also you don't use too much salt in your diet, Salt tends to keep a lot of water in your body. Another thing which helped me to lose a lot of weight was to not eat at all for one day a week... More
