Everyone is right about adding in strength training and even with cardio you have to change up cardio and your routine otherwise your body will adjust and you won't always see the same results.
I know my gym sometimes offer 1 free session with a trainer just to give you an intro to strength training therefore you can do it on your own after - I know for some people those machines can be a bit intimidating.

Yes, strength training. This is how I began to see results last year. I started with BodyPump classes at my gym. You could check to see if they have classes, or have a session with one of their peeps who can get you started lifting weights.

lift weights. That's the major benefit of the gym, you have access to heavy stuff.

When I would go to the gym to use the elliptical for like a half hour then I jog/sprint on the treadmill for as long as I could. I never really saw results, and I know that's not enough, but now I am changing my diet and I am going to start going back to the gym, but is there anything else I should be doing?
