I started working out 8 weeks ago, I normally meet with a trainer at least 3 times a week. I can tell I lost weight because my old office work pants is fitting me again. I wear a size 16 in women, but when I look at myself in the mirror I seem to be fatter, maybe its because I can see more of my cellulite. Or maybe I am more self conscious. I'm not sure exactly but I truly hate the feeling. My pants are fitting me perfect now, it not tight anymore its just snug, but honestly I don't want them to fit at all :( I want them to fall off. I feel like I should of lost more weight in 2 months. Someone help me. am I becoming to over pretentious?

  • Hi and Welcome to our community !

    Are you doing the Couch 2 5k programme ? :-) xxx

  • If your old clothes are fitting nicely again and you're exercising and losing weight, I'd say you're doing really well. All I can say is be patient and focus on health and strength and eating properly. It took me a year to lose about 20k that I put on during pregnancy, and 10 years later I seem to have acquired another 10k without a baby to show for it this time! It's definitely slower losing weight this time, I'm 41 now, but determined to get fit again๐Ÿ˜Š

  • It takes time to lose weight. Your body is changing, fat reducing, muscle building. I have found that I have to train (running) 3 times a week for about 3 months before my weight really starts to change so just Keep going!

  • Slowly is better than fast, you are more likely to keep it off. There is no quick fix for loosing weight. As kmjbragg has said just concentrate on eating healthily and exercising regularly and it will happen.๐Ÿ˜€

  • What weight loss programme are you following? You will need to reduce your food intake to lose weight.

  • You are doing so well....Make sure you strengthen your core as well, as that natural corset around your pelvis area can make a huge difference to how you look in the mirror. I do Pilates to support this. But any pelvic floor type exercises will help. If your jeans and work trousers are less tight you are winning!! Keep it up.

  • So did my body. From the age of 12 till 67 I fought the flab. Then I discovered The Starch Solution. I started a whole food plant based starch based no added oil way of eating 19/06/2015. By Christmas 26 kilos had just melted away and I felt great. No counting calories, eat till you are full not stuffed. After a year my GP did 5 A4pages of blood tests and they were great. Cholesterol down from 6.8 to 4.4! I do an hour workout every morning and have now started the C25K program. First week but so far so good. I now wear a size 10 down from 18. First time in my adult life. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ My gymnast granddaughter is very impressed how fit I am! I had the idea of running after reading Born to Run. Brilliant read.
