    Just Started Working Out

    I decided to join a gym b/c even though I looked like I was in shape I wasn't.  I play tennis, and I noticed I was getting tired so much faster from it, and knew my metabolism wasn't the same as it was a few years ago.  The fact I'm paying for it every...

    Just starting working out of a group of friends.

    I started working out at the gym this.

    I want to lose about 20 lbs and gain definition. I'm a 38 year old woman and I've never done weights before. This week, after being very diligent, the scale didn't budge at all. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, how long before the scale began to show progress?

    I started back to the gym last week,

    but tonight I made a trip to GNC to help get me where I want to be. I bought 2 types of pills, which will cause me to take 10 pills per day. I just took 2 of them, waiting a little closer to gym time to take the others. Man, I feel like I could climb Mt. Everest right now. I may...

    Sometimes I get intimidated by the machines

    and the really experienced people, but I've fallen into my own routine and have started to get comfortable!
