No instant results

So, after a really good workout, I feel strong, vigorous, warrior-esque.
But a part of me is bummed it didn't cut 50 pounds off me right then and then.
I mean feeling the burn is great...but it should show!
I'm really trying to live with the concept of "compound interest"---that the little bits here and there I do aren't huge themselves...but over time they snowball into....something less (of me).
In other news:
My gym is by a high school and when I got there today, there were LOTS of older teens in great shape working out. And lots of in shape older gentlemen too. I panicked...there I was in my baggy sweatpants and walmart shirt with long sleeves. But I just did it...and about 10 minutes later I noticed a man working out in dockers, a man with "my" physique, a few woman who were struggling on the treadmill.
It's funny that I didn't see the (what I consider) regular people at first. They were there. But all my insecurities had me focus on the already in shape people.
I'm glad I stayed.
