so, this marks the end of 4 weeks of working out at least 2x/wk. week 3 & 4 I did 3x/wk.

pros: sore muscles.. feel stronger.. proud of myself

cons: small downward movement on the scale. teeny. =( I was hoping that the scale would reinforce what gains I feel I have made, now I'm second guessing myself and wondering what else I need to do, how many more days a week, intensity of my workouts, blah, blah, blah. damn scale.

Well done Linda. Dedication definitely pays off.

Keep your head up and keep going. I've lost 28lbs in 3 months. Didn't see a difference at first but then the weight came off.

The scale shouldn't matter, what does matter is how you feel about yourself. Muscle weighs more than fat, so if you're constantly gaining muscle but losing fat, the scale won't especially change, especially if you don't weigh a ton already :) good job!! Keep going! And remember to hydrate :)

Patience, patience, patience. Why does anyone want to rush things?? Your body won't change in 4 weeks. It's a start of a long journey. Keep working for another 5 months and be surprised.

Way ago Linda!
Don't give up, that's the problem with everyone they want instant results! All of this takes time and hard work!
Take a look at your diet, it could be what your eating or not having enough of!
Whatever you do don't give up, just keep pushing and you will get there, it just takes time and dedication!
Good luck to you!

Remember that muscle weighs more than fat.  Ignore the scale and let your clothes be your guide.  I bet they already fit better, if not loose by now.
