    The nutrition tracker on here is excellent. It calculates the different nutrients you are consuming and tells you if you're taking on the right amounts (for me, my protein is really low). Well worth using. It will show you your fibre in take too - as tania suggested.

    I hope to see a blog post soon on your calorie tracking ;-)

    Many thanks for all your comment, it is apreciated, I must admit regarding the calorie intake i have not mastered that yet and it is one thing I must work on, I am doing the gym 5 days a week, Mon - Fri and burning 1000 cals each day, I must admit I have a feeling that I may not be eating enogh, I keep meaning to keep a food diary and work out the calorie intake, i also get confussed on the nutrition side, I supose its a work in progress.

    Thanks again it is apreciated.

    Hi there.. Well everybody is right, muscle does weigh more then fat. If you want to see the actual picture of the difference, check out my pictures, there is one on there. HUGE difference. So you are actually losing the weight, you are just gaining it in muscle.

    And remember you cannot go by what the scale says. Your best proof is those inches you are losing. 2 inches are a really great start. Also remember when you do more exercise, you need to eat more, for the energy. Your body needs that food to use as energy.

    If you really wanted to lose the lbs, and see it on the scale. I would say try lowing your work-outs and your calories. That is where you will see a weight loss. burn 3500 on a healthy diet, and it will be 1 lb lost a week.

    But I woould honostly say, stick to what you are doing. The work outs are great and you are losing the inches. It WILL catch up to you.

    Good luck on your journey, you're doing AWESOME!

    Hugs

    Hi from a fellow English Northerner (but now living down south).

    Yes, the muscle weight gain is true. So stick with the measurement that shows you you've lost 2 inches - that's "reet good" ;-) You say you're giving yourself a pat on the back but, have you tried giving yourself a proper reward (for me it's books).

    I've discovered for myself that I don't lose weight through exercise. I just get fitter and more capable of carrying the weight around! E.g. a couple of years ago I was able to jog 5 miles but, I still had a large stomach!

    So, now I'm working harder on my eating habits. When I keep those calories down, the weight comes off & I don't change what exercise I'm doing. Maybe this is also the case for you??? But, I'm not suggesting the Gym work isn't valuable.

    Do you keep a detailed check on how many calories you are consuming?

    hey
    i have some advise for your dairy
    eat many fibres
    example:
    eat "all barn" (cornflakes)for breakfast they have different percent of fibres best is 48 %.
    it help for me.
    instead of 3 time large meals you eat 6 time small meals
    it help for me very well

    success
    greets tania
