I have been working with a trainer 3 days a week for almost a year. There is very little change in my weight - in fact I am up a few pounds, but I can see the muscle definition, especially in my legs, and I can see where I have more endurance and I can lift more weight. I can now do the "planking" he wants me to do with better form.
I come from the "calorie deprivation" mindset, having lost 75 lbs through Weight Watchers. (and I have about 75 more to go) He has proven to me that the natural, healthy "unprocessed" foods make me feel better physically, without obsessing over total calories, but on the quality of the calories I eat. He has banned me from the scale for the most part.
Stick with what you are doing and I am sure you will feel better, look better and have more energy. I have learned it is not about the number on the scale, but health and happiness.View Thread
