Maybe you're doing it wrong

Weight loss 70% depends on your diet. Another 30%, is workout. If you focusing on weight loss, you should focus more on your diet.

Download my fitness pal. Record ur aim there (like i wanna lose 5lbs) record what u eat then let the app calculate how much u should eat, count the calories u take and draw ur limits.. at the end of the day do workouts until u spent the all calories over the limit. Scientific rule hun.. spend more calories than u get.. Maybe u get more calories than u spend..

You might be over training try changing your routine HIIT tabata cardio acceleration.  Also the amount of time try 30-45 min 5-6 days a week

Lol last comment was for Patrick M....^_^

Oh i just saw this since November comment, well in that case i would say you need to change something & that is most likely your diet since you have only mentioned exercise here. Try myfitnesspal. It takes some work to get into the groove with it, but you can learn a lot about your habits and end up making some small changes that make a big difference.

How many weeks have you been doing this?  Do you see no change in the mirror? Going only by what the scale says is rather foolish.

What are your eating habits like? You could run a marathon and eat all the calories back in like one big mac, the point of which being that it's very difficult to exercise enough to compensate for bad eating.

Muscle weighs more than fat per volume, so you're likely gaining muscle, which is great.

Don't worry so much about the scale. Results really do come from perseverance.

Ah.... I can c some muscles lol But friends and ppl say u r doing hard but we can't c progress :( BTW

Once again, it depends on how long you've been at it. Other people don't notice results for MONTHS... There are so many possible reasons for what you are saying. You could be training 'wrong' but also you could simply be impatient & getting frustrated too soon. Two hours a day sounds like a lot, but it all depends on what you are actually doing. I'm sure you don't mean you're one of those people walking on a treadmill & taking breaks to post about it to Facebook but your intensity level matters. Even more than that, however, is what you...

Definitely second myfitnesspal. I'm not big but I'm only now really starting to see a difference in the fat on my body. I also wanna point out that's it's possible to eat too little as wel, that can make your body go into starvation mode and it won't let go of the fat. That's still my problem really, eating enough every day.. it's hard when you eat as healthy and clean as you can.

As well*

"Starvation mode," the way you are talking about it here, is basically a myth.
20 Apr
Hmmm yes, could be. Sounds kinda stupid when you think about it, lol. I tend to be quite sceptical, but I hear this all the time so I guess I just believed in it.
20 Apr
Lots of people throw the term around & if we hear something enough it makes a certain kind of sense if you don't stop to ask yourself, & do a Google search. "Starvation mode" actually exists but it happens to actual starving people & it doesn't prevent weight loss the way people always imply it does.

Try doing a photo diary. Thats what im starting to do because the scales dont show anything. Maybe your body is just toning up and taking its time. It is very disappointing.  I feel your pain :(

20 Apr
Yes sister it is..

Photo diary taking full body pics from front, back and side once a month, at the same day of your menstrual cycle every time, wearing the same clothes. Measuring waist, chest and hips once a week, always the same day and time of day (I recommend Fridays, since we tend to eat more during the weekend and you might be your slimmest right before the weekend, and in the morning before you eat and drink). I also measure upper thigh and upper arm. I haven't weighed myself at all, because the scale is a useless indicator of size and health.

As for your family and friends saying they don't see any change: you don't see subtle changes in someone you see everyday. Go to my profile and look at my pics from February 27th. Neither me nor my fiance had noticed any change before we saw the pictures. We were both amazed by my progress.

As for the working out part, it's actually not recommended to work out that much. 45 minutes to an hour is what's usually advised. Focus on HIIT workouts and weight training. Look up Anita O's post "The best ab exercise EVER that no one does". It explains why high intensity training is your best bet. Good luck!

Also, look up Scotty K's topics "What "morph" are you" and "Want to lose or gain weight".

Yes dear that photo idea seems very good.... I hate scales :))) And for the workout time.... 20m jogging then an hour exercising 20m streching it's almost 1.40 and nothing much done.... If u get what I mean!!

You have to enjoy what you're doing and results will come on its own.You also have to be patient
Please ensure you are doing the right exercise for your body type, you have to burn fat and not use up glucose instead.

MyFitnessPal, definitely. I can work out all I want but I love food so much that I rarely see results. I know it can be incredibly discouraging when you work so hard and see nothing. Try going vegitarian (or Vegan if your strong enough!) for 2 days a week and start monitoring your calorie intake. . . Don't give up!!!

I wish I am strong..... Will give it a try.... Thank u :)
